"Where'd My Strangercrombie Donor Badge Go?"

Posted by on Fri, Dec 10, 2010 at 12:19 PM

Here is one of Fnarf's comments from Tuesday:

Here is one of Fnarf's comments from today:

You will notice that the Strangercrombie Donor badge is no longer there. In fact, the badges have been removed from everyone's comment handles. But don't fret! If you donated to last year's Strangercrombie, you will always have the badge, forever and ever, on your MyStrangerFace profile page, like so:

And we have started giving out new badges for donors to this year's Strangercrombie auction! Last of the Time Lords is the first to get a badge, which looks like this:

To get your badge, all you have to do is give more than $20 to this year's Strangercrombie charities, either by winning a package in the auction or by donating cash directly to Strangercrombie, and then e-mailing your Paypal receipt to strangercrombie@thestranger.com with your comment name. Everybody knows that a Strangercrombie Donor badge makes your comments exactly 79% more legitimate, so open those wallets and earn your credibility the way everyone else does—by buying it!

You forgot to add, "Except if you're Canadian! Because your money has loons and shit on it, and Paypal don't want that stuff..." or something...sigh, I was really looking forward to 79% more legitimate comments...

@1, I really did forward your concern to our web edit team, which is more than just a sock on my hand. I'll let you know what they say.

Paypal? You expect us to give our business to those scumsucking assholes?

@1 - Can you try again using the link below?

We removed the need for a shipping address, which will hopefully let you through.

Canuck, you could always claim to not wish to publicize your kindnesses.

@8 Doh! Just tried again, this is what it says:
"This recipient does not accept payments from non-U.S. PayPal accounts."

Oh gus, I just wanted to be one of the cool kids...but seriously, it won't even process the donation, it's a Log Cabin Conspiracy!

How much for a "Stranger Staff" badge? Actually, that would make a good charity auction item, haha.

Canuck, maybe they can set up a "Canadian" badge for you. That comes with a certain cachet that an American Paypal account can't buy you.

That's sounds awesome, MacCrocodile...maybe a little flag next to mine, at least...because, I just tried again, and it worked!!

Go for it, Gloria!

So, gus, you aren't the only fancypants in town NOW...Hah!

I never got my badge last year. But I wore an invisible badge of pride on my heart, which was nearly as good. Oh but I'm getting that motherfucker this year. IF IT'S THE LAST THING I DO.

Could the web designer do something about the formatting though? the donor badge floats around in the bottom-ish, right-ish corner like a drunk with the spins.

I'm mixed about the Paypal thing too. How about we just send a check?

How sad is it that after a year with no donor badge, I felt like I really NEEDED one this year? I never knew I was such a lemming.

@11 - Dang. Sorry. Finally dug up the setting deep in PayPal that was preventing non-US donations and we've changed it. Try again (again)?

You got it, despicable me! But an etiquette question: Does a suck-up Strangercrombie Donor spit or swallow?

I don't see any reason why one couldn't do both. It just depends on their mood.
