Even though there is no pressure to donate, I did.  So there.  Nanananananana.   ;D ;D ;D

Did I win the prize yet?

It doesn't say 2009 Supporter under your name, did you give this year?  I thought this contest was only for 2009 support, who cares who gave last year?

I donated in 2008 and again earlier today.  It says 2009 Supporter now.

If you would like to have a 2009 Supporter label under your name, click on the donate button.

How much did you donate?  I just don't want to look like a cheap-skate.   :-\

I donated in 2008 and something seems to have happened to my 2008 Supporter label, guess I must have done something to warrant having that removed.

I wouldn't imagine you've done anything wrong - note the wording in the thread entitled 2008 and 2009 Supporter Designations which says:

So, if you gave a donation in 2008, your profile will continue to read "2008 FOG Supporter" for up to a year after your donation.  The designation won't go away just because it's the new year.

So by my reckoning, if you donated on 1 April 2008, your profile would read "2008 FOG Supporter" until about 1 April 2009, whereupon it would disappear. A further donation in 2009 would show you as a "2009 FOG Supporter" for a period of 12 months after that donation was made, taking you into 2010.

Forrest, as usual you're a wealth of information, thanks for the clarification.  I went back and looked, you are correct it was last April.

Good Morning,
As Forrest expertly explained, I set up the donation system so that "supporter" shows for one year following a donation.  This way, no matter what time of year the donation came in it is the same.  To be even more precise, "credit" is given for the entire month in which you donated, no matter which day.  For example, if you donate on February 1st, the donation goes through until March 1st the following year.

I had to come up with a system, and this seemed to make the most sense.

Thanks again to all supporters, and to Forrest -- the link master!

Stay in touch,
Matthew

Matthew,
first and foremost i would like to thank you on behalf of my self and the rest of us FOG members that actually appreciate all the hard work you are putting in to give us all a common place to resolve issues, talk about our festools, tricks and jigs it's not very often you find other festoolers hanging around job sites.
second, people that donate as much of their time to creating, monitoring, and participating a website such as this usually get paid for it and make quite a nice living.

I can't even begin to comprehend how someone can come into your domain and accuse you of extortion or making money and trying to hide it. 
Well i hope you are making money, you darn well deserve it for all your hard work, and to all  you people that have a problem with this contest or anything else on the site i would like to say be glad you didn't come to my house and insult me this way because i would have kicked you so hard in your  you'd be able to taste the stuff i stepped into earlier.

Matt, once again don't pay attention to the haters / loosers (they got nothing better going on in their life so they try to pick on others), most of us appreciate all your hard work.
this is your site, do as you wish, if some don't like it, ban them.
