    and jordan, no one "expects" anyone to pay for anything. that's why it's called a "donation" and not a "payment". if you give someone a voucher for christmas do you expect a say-so on how they spend it?

    Ok, let's run with the $6/1week $11/2weeks idea from now for 2 weeks and assess it then. I'll update the original post

    Not at the moment no; my point was that if a donation reward has a time limit - it becomes akin to a subscription in that regular payments are made for continued service. And I don't know about you but if I make regular payments to a person or company; I want a certain quality of service in exchange for those payments.

    Also, I would have to only provide the user title rename for that cost, not include the vip features. There would be no larger donations if the incentive is given away at the $5 level.

    Something that could be done is $6 user title for 1 week, $11 for 2 weeks. Or, donate a minimum of $15 and get VIP access and one 2 week user title rename included.

    This raises another issue though - people will get (at the moment) lifelong vip access for $15. There wont be any incentive to help out in future years. How about a year's VIP access is $15. So, if you donate $30 you get 2 years vip access, $45 you get 3 years etc.

    Thoughts?
    If I understand Paypal's person-to-person transfer correctly, the person sending the money has the option of paying the fee, so you'd get the full $5.

    I think the smaller donations = name change, bigger = VIP access is a good idea.

    Its complicated, he doesnt have one in the traditional sense of the word. I guess you would say gaia is seeing as her decision to fuse the elements together gave life to him.
