Several folks have asked about making donations to geekhack to help with upkeep, hardware upgrades, etc.  Personally, I'd rather provide something tangible in exchange instead of just accepting donations.  

So, I came up with the idea of providing geekhack.org email addresses to members for a one-time donation of $20.  These would be forwarded to any of your currently-owned email addresses.  You'd have dibs on @geekhack.org, of course.

If you are interested, just send me a PM.

Could I select something else than my username, provided that no user has that username?

Well, I guess I could use another email addy beside the 5 - 6 ones I already have.  PM sent! =P

Hmm...  I've got plenty of Email addresses.

I'll PM you with another offer.  If you sign this "Forever Geekhack, iMav" and send it along with my key order the $20 is sure to improve my kid's math grades.  Your avatar scares the s*** out of him.

hahaha!  Deal!  :)

Sure.  What I will probably do is make sure the name you use is then put on the list of unavailable GH usernames (to avoid confusion with future members).

Don't really need another email address.. But maybe you can add a paypal donation thingy in the header or footer of the site so people can just donate a few bucks? :)

Several members have already had their @geekhack.org addresses set up.  

If you are interested, send me a PM and we can get you squared away.

iMav would be possible to use the money unspent on the Round Three to pay this service?

I'm refering to the message that tells this: You have got $21.00 in your account.

Nothing that you'll get in writing.  :)

Seriously though...you'll have it as long as I am capable of providing it to you.  (geekhack and all my domains, etc are in my will and will be passed on to someone else competent if I meet an early death...so perhaps even longer then I can provide)

I'm open to having a "Premium" type emblem next to a users name saying they've donated or just having a header at the top of the page for a donate button.

I have no use for an e-mail and I'm sure many other people might not either.

This is an open-ended offering.  Just PM me your desired geekhack.org address (you have dibs on your GH username) and the email address you would like email forwarded to.

(the suggested donation is $20)

iMav, just sent in a donation. No need for an email address, have plenty email forwards as is... I know how much hosting can cost and vBulletin's software isn't cheap. If it isn't too much, could I possibly get to add a sig at some point soon. I want to have some fun designing some 8-bit versions of a few of my KB layouts.

Maybe I just wanted to donate then, and expect nothing in return ; )

Well I see it there now, but I'm really positive it wasn't there before. Perhaps because I passed 50 posts, or most likely I'm still getting use to vBulletin forums. It's a moot point now, time to get crafting a sig of my favorite KBs
