Personally I am not that interested in personal recognition, and to be honest I can't imagine that it would be an issue for anyone, in particular the large donors. Obviously I don't want to speak on their behalf, but backing a project like this in the first place suggests that it's simply not an issue for them. Put another way, if they wanted some in game recognition I'd imagine that they would have pledged a large amount individually as opposed to a group donation. So, the issue really is to get this funded first - then worry about the fine print.

Ow, there are transaction fees? I didn't know that (never used Paypal before). I'll give a little bit more than 10 next month then. How much is the fee?

 

 

As for the whole "recognition" thing: I have other suggestions.

-Not have "ourselves" recognized but create imaginary victims of the Bastards. We could even pair up (as in make a team of two) to create this victim, its name/loot/other information we can put in.

-Have "ourselves" recognized with lore-friendly names but also make a team of two so we combine names and/or loot, fate, and whatever. This way we can have more people in, and I think it's fun to do.

 

We could also just give people who agree the option to form a team or not (it might be too complicated for some people), that would leave more freedom for everyone while still giving the possibility to include more people in total in the ledger.

What do you think of this?

The team thing could work, it's a good idea. Just do divide the bibs into teams, (no idea how many there are in total) and let each team come up with their entry into the ledger. At least everyone would be a part of the process. As to how many in a team would depend on how many bibs there are v how many entries there are. Not sure how easy it is going to be in practice though, it's kinda like writing a haiku by committee.

Wanted in on this but having trouble with PayPal.  :unsure:

 

Lost my account somehow so I created a new one, but they won't let me link the same bank account/credit card since it's still associated with the lost account. I could open up a new bank account I suppose, but what a hassle. I've asked PayPal about it well over a week ago now, haven't gotten a reply back.

 

No other payment options hmmm?

Yeah, paypal is a real bitch when you need to recover it. I had to make a new account. Luckily, I used my old card for the old paypal. I think the easiest path is to borrow someone's paypal, transfer them the amount directly and let them use paypal. Starting a new account or getting a new card seems like too much hassle.

Doesn't Paypal have prepaid cards? If not you could always get a prepaid credit card with a amount on it, and tie that to a new Paypal account.
