A few people donated $1000 and the Admin Team came round to their house and actually modded their wii for them. Hows that for service!?
Donating is to keep the forums alive for everyone. There is s cost for the servers that needs to be covered as well as other outlays on a monthly basis.
Donating will not get you a quicker response to your problems. The reason you are waiting so long may very well be that your posting in the wrong places and/or you post isn't clear enough.
I have found the response of this site to be furiously quick, and the team certainly do not have to time to wipe the nose of everyone on a personal 1-2-1 basis. I am sure they would like to, but they are understaffed and shockingly enough are actualy volunteers who are here to help out of the goodness of their heart.
Donating will not get you a gold star with breakfast in bed. It will not get Mr-T to arrive at your house in a helicopter to mod your Wii for you and tell you jokes. What donating will do is keep the forums alive.
