For those who didn’t get a chance to donate during our fundraiser because they didn’t have the funds or hadn’t heard of us yet, we have good news! For the many people who asked, we’re reopening donations through our forums for people who missed our drive on IndieGoGo.

Simply click the ‘Donate’ button on Tumblr (http://weasyl.tumblr.com) or here on our forums and follow the instructions. Donations of 5 dollars guarantee an invite, and donations of 20 guarantee premium time all through the beta, plus one month after the general launch. We are overjoyed by the amount of interest we continue to receive, and we hope you enjoy the updates that are still to come.

You're fine! You don't need to do anything. Any previous donator doesn't have to do anything.

This is just for people who missed out on the IndieGoGo donation drive. We had quite a few people asking if there was another way to donate to get into the beta, so this is our solution.

The beta is slated for late September. So you still got a month and half or so.

So are the beta donation thingamajigs gonna be open from now until the beta opens up in mid-September? I don't see a cut-off point anywhere in the OP.

So, how do you usually verify a person on the forums has donated? Their email?

I believe it will last until sometime in September but I'd need to double check with other departments regarding that.


So, how do you usually verify a person on the forums has donated? Their email?

We check their email usually, though with this new system if you donate directly through the forums it will register to your currently logged in account.

I just went to poke around the Donation section to take a look at how the process works, and I noticed the dropdown menu things for both available options say "25 Years" in them, above the dollar amount for that particular option. What's up with that?

Eminoxic
08-23-2012, 11:16 PM
Well, by donating to be a contributor you get life-time to the forums, which vBulletin only allows 25 years as a max subscription time.

The invited 1 was left at 25 years as a place holder. The value there doesn't truly matter since donating to the "Invited" option changes nothing for you via-forums, it just logs your username and e-mail so we can invite you a lot easier when the beta does start.

I donated the other day, do you contact by email?

Kazekai

We're still able to donate to this and get access, right?

Kihari
09-03-2012, 03:37 PM
I donated the other day, do you contact by email?

Correct! When the time comes, everyone who has donated $5 or more will receive an email that contains a link to the registration page. When you sign up, the system will recognize your email address as belonging to someone who received an invitation to do so.


We're still able to donate to this and get access, right?

We are still accepting donations through the donation page on the forums (http://forums.weasyl.com/vbulletin/payments.php?tabid=49) as well as the donate button on our tumblr page (http://weasyl.tumblr.com), and we plan to continue accepting donations in this way for some time yet. Our donation perks are listed here (http://i.imgur.com/fDZ5n.png).

It was in regard to the premium-level access here, actually; I know the site isn't live yet. Then after I had clicked on "Submit Reply" I saw my status line had already changed to "Premium User." I am made of derp today :)

How long should the email take now that the site is open? Or do I have to message someone..?

I've got a silly question. I donated $5 to get into the beta, but now that it's live would I be able to upgrade that to the premium with an additional $15 donation?

I was having indiegogo sending me email errors when i was trying to donate the first time. so just curious

No, sorry :c You're free to donate more than $20 if you wish but you won't get any extra perks. Like I think if you donated $40 you should be able to give your extra $20 donation in regards to a friend so they got an invite and premium.

Vella
10-06-2012, 04:45 PM
I donted 6$ just before the site went down through tumblr, and I'm just curious how long does it usually take before we get an invite email? I used the same email to register here as should have shown up in paypal just to be safe too. c:

Taw
10-06-2012, 05:25 PM
I believe Kihari will send out the invite emails once we reopen the site after the bug fixes.

You should have gotten an invite by now. E-mail weasyl.sysop@gmail.com about this. You should include your paypal address in the e-mail somewhere if you're not already e-mailing from your paypal address. Sorry about this!

I donated I think twenty-five dollars earlier today and -sorry if I am being a doop and haven't seen any instructions- will they send an invite out to the paypal email or do I have to ask somewhere about it? I am terrible at New Things D:

The invite emails will be sent out sometime in the next few hours I believe - Kihari is the one managing them and sending them out and he's at work right now, I believe, so when he's home he'll check and invite the new ones since our last batch.

You both should be getting your invites quite soon. If you donated at least $5, you'll get an invite, so don't worry Bastion :>

Donated 5$ today! Though I am curious in how I will receive the invite. I presume it's going to be by email? And what's the estimated time for delivering?

Excited to explore the site. :3

It will be by e-mail. Invites are usually sent out in the evening and then they are mailed out on a 20 minute delay. If you don't receive your invite within a day, let us know!

It should go to your paypal email.

You'd have to email weasyl.sysop@gmail.com and get it sorted out to do that I believe.

It takes up to a day to receive invites, though now invites are being sent out more often so it shouldn't be that long. If a day passes and you don't get your invite (be sure to check your spam/junk inbox folder), e-mail weasyl.sysop@gmail.com about it.

Alright, well, I got my invitation and went to sign up but I got an error saying that the username I tried creating was reserved, so I went back and tried a different username but then it said that the e-mail was already registered. Help me out?


Edit; nevermind, I got an e-mail saying that my account is now created. Weird.

So, what if I want to register with an email that's different from my paypal email address?

Or if I decide I want to use a different email than what I registered to the forums with?

I have several emails that are used for different things, but if the donation is linked to whatever you donate through, how do you use a different one for actually registering?

You have a few choices here.

1. E-mail weasyl.sysop@gmail.com about it
2. Contact Ben, Kihari or Juste and give them the e-mail you wish to register with
3. Change your account's e-mail once you are registered.

Send an email to weasyl.sysop@gmail.com immediately after donating to let us know where the invites should go (although we would just ask you if you didn't).

Try the following in this order:

Check your spam folder to see if the invite accidentally got sent there.

If it's not there, try going to https://www.weasyl.com/signup and use the e-mail you donated with to signup with.

If neither of the above worked, send an e-mail to support@weasyl.com and let them know what e-mail you donated with so they can assist you further.
