    We're starting the Donation Drive Tomorrow. We still need personal appeals written.


    So far, from EDF, only me and @oddguy have written anything. Anyone care to dish out a few funny paragraphs begging people for money to be put on our Donation Drive page? Also, a SFW picture / gif to go beside it. Should be tall and rectangular, maybe 500x300 px.

    Here's a screenshot of the area you should try and fill:

    That's not my actual appeal btw, I still have to put it into the templates.

    Appeals so far:

    ... I remember some other guy wrote something to.
    What happened to that?

    Would me also taking pictures wearing skimpy clothes help donations? :D
    Or would that just drive people away?

    I'd do something but I'm not exactly all that creative. Is there a brief or something of what is wanted that I could take a look at or is this it?

    Good, now I have your attention. Encyclopedia Dramatica has had an interesting year, no doubt about it. the schism with the old .com regime shook everything up big time and left everything up in the air for a short time. Fortunately, like a phoenix of lulz, ED rose from the ashes once more, clean and free from the taint of it's previous sellout management. This rise, from corrupt, ad plastered circlejerk to bastion of free speech has been made possible due to the hard work and dedication of many in the community. Now, we have some pretty specialist hosting requirements, and to be frank, it isn't cheap (E and Zaiger have ploughed hundreds of pounds and dollars of their own money into keeping ED online). not in the least because of the fact that we attract a lot of negative attention from the myriad butthurt faggots that think they are somehow above having the mickey taken out of them. Anyway, the long and short of it is ED relies almost 100% on donations to keep running. donations from people like you.

    Encyclopedia Dramatica is a place where freedom of speech is a virtue held above all else. ED provides an open forum for anyone to discuss anything without fear of being called racist or predjudiced. a place where everything is lampooned mercilessly and nothing is sacred. ED is the essence of free speech. if that's something you value, if being free to say what's in your heart, without being villified for standing up to the status quo is something you believe is right, then you should donate to ED today. because we are not afraid to stand up and say what everyone else is thinking, and by donating, even just a small amount you will be helping to keep an organisation that is dedicated to YOU, up and running.

    @Edgeworth come back and check you thread. also, I love what you've done with the donation page, if you get enough people willing to write something, could you put the appeals on a rotation?

    you could have incentives for people to donate, like if you reach 5000 jewgolds you'll release a sex tape featuring @zaiger and @oddguy speaking like kawai animu characters as they plow eachother in the ass.

    I think we should use that as a threat.
    Anyone on the mailing list that does not donate will get that video sent to them.

    Actually, to be more gay, they should play scenes from Full Metal Alchemist or Inuyasha.

    I'm not that knowledgeable, bro. I'd take gayporn over anime anytime.

    Threats will always work when you're asking for donations. Has anybody thought of hijacking an oil tanker off the coast of Somalia and ransoming it or starting a religion and telling everybody they'll burn for all eternity if they don't give you all their money?
