I'm happy to report that we have actually passed our goal, which caught me by surprise! I just wanted to thank everyone for the response! It makes me happy to know people do get value out of this site and forum.

I still have some people to get in touch with so if you haven't heard from me yet, please feel free to send me a PM about any incentives.

The ads should be disabled for users who opted for that incentive, though I think the parts outside of the forum may be buggy and they might still show. I'm working on fixing that. If anyone expecting the ads to be disabled still see them please contact me and I'll take a look. I'll also adjust the time limits accordingly.

My goal is to launch the redesign in the New Year but I will give updates when I can. It's nice to know I'll be making actual progress on it now.

Again, I just want to thank everyone. It means a lot to me, especially since no one was obligated to donate.

I have just finished applying everybody's incentives (from ranks to name changes to ad removals, etc.) and I just want to put it out there again that if I haven't gotten back to you, or I haven't finished implementing an incentive to please send me a PM. I just want to make sure I got to everybody. Again, just want to say thanks to everyone. I was very surprised by the response and how quickly we got to our goal. I was really expecting to go into August and even then not make it.

As I mentioned before I will give updates as progress is made (hoping to make a landmark in September) and at some point will welcome members to maybe test things out.

Yep, I'm happy too. I'm just as indifferent about Abrams as I am Indiana Jones, so it seems strangely fitting.

Of course, if the mods ever want to have fun and periodically tweak it, I'm game.

I'll also chime in, couldn't be happier with my custom rank. Thanks to the admins, what a great incentive to help the site. Looking forward to seeing other fun ranks.

Just updating (again) to apologize to those that snuck in donations that I missed. I sent out PMs. And again, if there are people still waiting to hear from me feel free to write me.

Also, a handful of users did opt to change their users names. It'll be short but I will compile a list.

I know I'm very belated in changing my name, but now that I have, would the brain trust like to pick a rank? I used to be Mungo.

Giving an update:

The skeleton of the overhaul is there and most functionality is there. I still have some things to finish up and bugs to fix. I unfortunately ran into issues causing delays, one was more personal and the other is that the person I had contacted about working on the look of it has basically fallen through, so I need to find someone else.

The functionality is being tested right now and at some point I may look for other users to test it out.

Hello, is there a way to order movies or whatever through an amazon banner in order to provide you money or you don't do that at all?

Sorry, been flaking over the holidays, but yes, you can use links to Amazon throughout the site (even in posts). There used to be links at the bottom of the forum that I now just noticed are gone, so I'll have to put back. But you can follow the amazon.com link at the bottom of the home page will work.

Also, as an update to this thread, I have someone (finally) helping me with the layout/design/look of the new site. Most of the functionality is also almost done. At some point I'll be looking for volunteers who would be interested in testing it out.

Great, I'll use it for my future purchases, thanks cdnchris.

Wait, if I navigate to Amazon from this forum before making purchases there, the forum gets a cut? I wasn't aware, I'll have to start doing that!

It's really an easy way to give money to the forum!

Yeah good to know, I'll be doing that in the future too. So much wasted dividends so far!

I was also not aware of this path to Amazon from the forum; I've been alternately routing from DVDBeaver and Blu-ray.com to share the kick-backs with those sites for their helpful reviews. But I'd rather fund the discussion here, naturally.
Unfortunately, I've taken a hiatus from media procurement online as my New Years' resolution. We'll see how long I can hold out.

So, uh... what exactly do I have to do if I click through this ad in order for the site to make some money?

I believe he actually went to UofM! My symphony chorale director was his roommate.
