And, just for the record, bribing won't get you a moderator position or anything*. Donations are greatly appreciated though, so keep them coming!

* at least for values under £1,000 or so. ;)

Yes. Certain members have thrown this topic off the rails not once but twice. Not three times, you don't want that.

Not because I just made a contribution, but I wonder if it could be made possible to give people who donate a special status as "tycoon donor" with a large red beam under author, for one year and again for the next year if there is a new donation made.

Why?

Seriously, whats the point? They haven't contributed anymore to the community than anyone else... Graphics Artsists/Coders donate their time, Moderators their patience, some people their time as they help out. Donating cash money is just a different way of giving something back to the forums that give us so much...

Why is there then a red beam with a status of the person?
Why is there then a system with difference titles?
Why is there then a list of persons who made a donation?

So, why not giving persons who do something extra, each in there way (a dev, a moderator, a donor), a kind of status? By giving persons a status you give them a simple kind of reward and maybe it gives a positive signal to others to make there contribution.
Keep life simple...
