    Did you donate? Or just enter the contests? IMO the Contributor was for folks who GAVE money (with no thought/plan/idea of getting ANYTHING in return then the site keeping going. I have entered the contests but as I didn't (donate) I don't expect a icon.

    You mean like this one?;f I wouldn't worry about an icon too much. You know you donated, what does it matter if everyone else knows or not. I've got an icon, but I only donated $10 a few times. I know there are people that gave over $100 several times and have no icon because they wished for no recogition.

    The Dr. Suess story "The Sneeches" comes to mind.

    I donated $5 my first week, then bought a ticket, then gave another $20 without a ticket, then bought another ticket - never thought to ask for a donor label. Should I ??

    Hi guys. If you donated money to the site, and didn't get an icon, and want one, then PM or email Eric about it. Starting a thread with the intentions of Eric seeing it, are slim. The best chance other than those two is to ask in the Front Office Forum. I'll move this there for you. Eddie C.

    If it doesn't matter, then why'd you click the option saying you wanted an icon?;) IMO, it does matter. It lets people that are new to GT know that people actually do donate, and that donations are needed and accepted. It's also a sign of appreciation and recognation from Eric. I'm proud to be a contributing member to a website I enjoy....."sneech" or not. :) Even if some people do it for the glory of the icon, then at least GT is getting some help that would otherwise not be given.

    Gary, be patient. It took a while to get my little icon too....about a month, I believe.

    Same here, I donated money and haven't recieved my icon yet.

    I also bought a contest ticket and haven't recieved a ticket number.

    I have sent Eric two emails at webmaster@glocktalk.com and neither have been replied to. Time for a PM.

    Hi folks. I am sorry about not getting to you all sooner. I am really crappy at staying on top of stuff like this. My sister has agreed to start helping out with admin stuff like this and I am hoping she can get the trains running on time. Anyway, I think I got everyone who spoke up, in this email. If you have contributed to the site and didn't get your icon, email me at webmaster@glocktalk.com . Thanks. Eric

    So how much does it cost to run this site, and how far does the contributions of the members go towards keeping it running?

    I didn't realize what it costs to run GT. I've been here a little over a hear and had fun, I guess I'll kick into the kitty as well, consider it "rent" since I live here. *chuckle*

    Eric, sorry it ain't much, but, I hope it helps. It's on it's way.

    I donated a LONG time ago and never thought much about the icon, but it would be nice. Thanks,
