    What are the benefits one gains that encourage one to donate to the 4 star level, VIP level and benefactor level? Are there many or small specific worthy perks that one gains from donating and therefore becoming a 4 star level donator, VIP level donator, or a benefactor level donator? Maybe a super mod/admin here could post what exactly is received at each level. Would help clarify the levels and emphasize the importance of striving for the next level... Just a thought..

    After level 2 it's simply for appreciation. All of the information on the site is provided for free, but keep in mind it takes money to run as well. Donations keep us going, and also think of how much having a collections of backups is worth. Kid steps on SMG2, bye bye $60...

    edit: And at least for me I go more out of my way to help people who obviously care about the site. They get some more slack cut, lol.

    Can you please PM me with the amounts, dates, and PayPal receipt numbers and I will followup on this oversight with the site admin for you. The donations are handled manually, so the cumulative donations are easier to slip through. Sorry about the oversight. It happened to my donations, too. My apologies and thanks for your multiple donations and really fun Avatar.

    It usually takes 2-3 days for Paypal to report the donation and our site admin to process and arrange for donor banners and stars. The admin is out of town for a few days so I would guess maybe by Tuesday if you don't have your banner and stars please PM me with the Paypal invoice number, date of donation, and amount. I will followup with admin on your behalf.

    Thank you for your donation; it is much appreciated. Sorry about the delay due to our admin being gone.

    I was trying to donate $10.01 but I wasn't able to type in a custom amount unless I missed something. Please let me know. Thank you.

    Here's what should have happened:

    You scrolled down in the donation amount box and selected CUSTOM.
    You then probably entered $10.01 and clicked the SUBMIT button.
    That should have taken you to a PayPal login window. Of course, you then login to PayPal and complete the transaction-within PayPal are other options such as changing the amount of transaction, etc.

    Something along the way did not work-which step failed and what did you see?

Donors at that level may PM site staff; in addition, a donor is considered a Priority Member in IRC Chatroom. Donation levels are as follows (US dollars):

    An Email of thanks is sent for any donation up to $4.99
    A donator banner is added to your Avatar field with a donation between $5 -10
    1 star = $10.01 to $25
    2 stars = $25.01 to $50
    3 stars = $50.01 to $100
    4 stars = $100.01 to $200
    VIP status = $200.01 to $400
    Benefactor status = $400.01 to $800

    Starred donors are given access to the Private Forums where other perks are available. Such perks can include invitations to private trackers, unique programs, and access to an exclusive monthly newsletter. Starred donors may also receive more one-on-one assistance, via PM communication, from the site staff.

    Currently, donation amounts are cumulative and banner/star awards do not expire. Donors who arrange for a Paypal automatic regular payment option will receive their banner or star upon reaching each cumulative donor level.
    When will the star appear in the profile? I have received an email time ago but still not banner/star.
