[OFFICIAL] 2017 Member Appeal for Donations

2017 Appeal for Funding

January 23rd - February 24th, 2017

 

This amazing community is all made possible by each and every one of you. Your dedication to the clan, hilarious forum posts, 24-hour Discord banter, involvement in division activities, recruitment efforts, and general awesomeness is what makes all of this possible. However, it is important to realize that we have monthly expenses to keep the infrastructure of this community running.

 

About a year and a half ago, we initiated a clan-wide fundraising appeal to replenish our severely depleted coffers. These funds are what enable us to continue providing the services, forums, servers, and giveaways that we all enjoy. Thanks to the amazing generosity of our community, that campaign was a resounding success. I’m happy to report that we have be able to sustain our operations on that success since the end of that campaign.

 

However, the time has come once again to appeal to the generosity of our amazing community in running an appeal for funding for the next month. From now until February 24, 2017, please consider donating to the cause. We do have ribbons for contributors to award. We are also holding a giveaway for those that contribute during this appeal! (See below for more details.)

 

We understand that everyone’s financial situation is different. We do not expect everyone to be able to contribute. Monetary contributions to the clan are not required and is not contingent on your ability to participate in events, or would limit your ability to be involved in anyway. This is not the case today, and NEVER WILL BE. However, if you are in a position to do so, any contribution, even as little as $5, to our operational funds would be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Sometimes, a lack of transparency as to how funds will be managed and spent can cause people to be reluctant to contribute their hard-earned money. I know this has caused some to be hesitant to donate in the past. I hope to clear everything up in this post, and be completely transparent with our current funding levels and monthly expenses. 

 

Bottom line, 100% of donated funds will ALWAYS go to clan expenses. Period.

 

Who has access to and controls donated funds?

 

Currently, the only people who have access to funds are myself (TheDanius) and our fearless leader, thebronxbomber

 

How much money does the clan currently have on hand?

 

Our PayPal balance is currently $440.95. Thank you to everyone who has previously donated.

 

What are our monthly expenses?

 

Website hosting:  $30.00

TeamSpeak Channel: $12.00

ArmA Server/Dedicated Box: $36.00*

 

TOTAL MONTHLY CLAN EXPENSES: $78.00

 

* - I have been subsidizing the cost to the clan by 50% (sometimes 100%) out of my own pocket each month. If we could raise sufficient funds so that this subsidy is no longer required, my wallet would be much appreciated.

 

As you can see, while not super expensive, we do incur real costs each month to keep everything online and moving. Up to this point, many of these costs were covered by the sheer generosity of some of our members. While we expect a lot of this to continue, your donations could go a long way to helping to subsidize costs, allow us to do more things like giveaways or contests, and to allow us to keep providing to services you all have come to know and love.

 

How do I donate?

 

First of all, thank you very much in advance for your generous donation. As I said before, 100% of donated funds will go to cover clan expenses. Every little bit helps, even as little as $5.00.

 

To donate, please send via PayPal to fighting13thdonations@gmail.com.

 

You can also donate by clicking the “Donate to the Fighting13th” button on the home page.

 

**PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR FORUM NAME ON DONATIONS SO WE KNOW WHO TO THANK!!**

 

Do I get anything for donating?

 

Funny you should ask, donations to the clan will NEVER get someone any kind of preferential treatment whatsoever. However, we have a couple of ways to show our appreciation for your donations:

 

·         Users contributing $10 or more will receive the Financial Contributor Ribbon: FinancialContributor.png

·         Users contributing $100 or more will receive the Financial Contributor Gold Ribbon:FinancialContributorGold.png

 

WE WILL ALSO HAVE A GIVEAWAY FOR CONTRIBUTING MEMBERS!!!

 

·         The member who contributes the most amount of money during this appeal will receive their choice of any game currently in my Inventory!! Selections are shown below.

 

·         Additionally, EVERY MEMBER contributing $10 or more to the campaign will be entered into a drawing for a chance to also receive their choice of any game currently in my inventory.

Our generous supporters. Thank you!!

Member Spotlight #11: InvictusProsper

Written By: Mattof7questions

 

InvictusProsper is one of our newest members to the clan. He is currently a member of "Spartans Company" and the most recent MotM holder (Member of the Month).

 

 

Q: Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

A: My name is Jordan, I’m 22. I work from home and play too many video games in my spare time.

 

Q: Where did your username come from?

A: Invictus means unconquerable in Latin and I just added prosper because it sounded pretty cool and have had it for like 7 years now. 

 

Q: When did you join the 13th?

A: I joined about the beginning of November 2016

 

Q: How did you find the 13th? Or did we find you?

A: I was just browsing the LFG for BF1 on Reddit and found the recruiting post you guys made and just thought you guys seemed pretty organized and big and I’ve enjoyed being here since. 

 

Q: What made us stand out among the others?

A: Everyone is pretty cool, fun to play with, and organized. 

 

Q: Have you been in any other clans before this one?

A: I’ve attempted to make a clan with my friend for Destiny awhile back when that was coming out and it was just a pile of fart and the clan just kinda broke. I was with another clan for awhile that got a bit bigger but it was just for Rust and they didn’t really seem to enjoy any games except Rust.

 

Q: What was your first month like?

A: A thousand times better than most clans I’ve been in. I really enjoyed the fact that there were scheduled days for certain games and I just hopped in the party and was playing BF1 with like 8 other people a few days after joining. You guys were also super welcoming.

 

Q: So what’s be Happening outside clan life?

A: Not much really, I mainly just work and play games and exercise. 

 

Q: What is your biggest contribution to the clan and how does that feel to you?

A: I haven’t been around too long so I’m not sure I’ve contributed for too long but I do kick some ass in BF1 so that could count

 

Q: Do you have a hobby?

A: Gaming. a tiny bit of art I guess, I haven’t done anything really serious in art since high school, but I did alot in there in just drawing and occasional doodles. I mostly just doodle logos or simple little designs nowadays and rarely. Not particularly good, and the best thing I’ve made is the logo I currently use. (The red wing-shaped thing)

 

Q: Console or PC which do you Prefer and Why?

A: PC, because it is better in most ways and Ive had enough peasant years to last a lifetime

 

Q: Can you remember your first game/system that you played/owned, if so what was it?

A: I believe the very first one was the Dreamcast, it was pretty fun playing Crazy Taxi and Tony Hawk.

 

Q: What was your first “Online” gaming experience?

A: I remember the first day I played Halo 3 online after I finally got Xbox live for Christmas years ago. I don’t think I’ve played any game nearly as much as I used to play that. I also played Warcraft 3 quite a bit around then and played Custom Games for hours during the summers.

 

Q: When was the first time your raged at a video game?

A: Probably the first day I played Halo 3. 

 

Q: Favorite Game?

A: I honestly have no idea. Witcher 3, Warcraft 3, Halo 3. I guess anything with a 3 on it tends to be my favorites

 

Q: Least Favorite Game?

A: Destiny, never been as disappointed and angry at anything since that game.

 

Q: What was the most disappointing game you ever played/played this year?

A: I played Modern Warfare Remastered at a friends and laughed at how bad it looked and played, seriously disappointed at that whole ordeal.

 

Q: Was there (ever) a game that exceeded your expectations (this year)?

A: Titanfall 2 turned out way better than I expected. 

 

Q: Any Games you would like to see the clan take on in future

A: Titanfall 2 could use some more love, Also could use some more strategy games and it could be fun to find a fun MMO for us to play as a clan.

 

Q: Do you view anyone in the clan with a special kind of regard. I.e. does anyone stand out among the others?

A: I don’t think I’ve gotten to know anyone more than the rest, but you all are equally awesome and fun to play with.

 

Q: Do you have any good stories involving the clan that you would like to share?

A: Basically every Tuesday has about 5 hilarious shenanigans in BF1

 

Q: In General, what do you see in the future of the clan?

A: Not too sure, just keep on being awesome. 

 

Q: What event do you most remember in your clan life?

A: I had quite a blast playing Cards Against Humanity with a room full of drunken goofs, and that was pretty killer.

 

Q: Funniest moment in your clan life?

A: Sniping one of you guys in the face with a cannon across the map in BF1 and then having someone else in the clan do the same thing again in the same game was pretty hilarious. 

 

Q: How did receiving MotM (Member of the Month) make you feel? 

A: Surprised and Happy, wasn't expecting it and am just happy to be a part of the clan as much as I can.

 

Q: Any advice you would like to pass on the the newbies in the clan or everyone in general?

A: Just jump right into some games, we won’t bite (you). 

 

Q: have you met any of the other clan member IRL or/and  are you planning to?

A: Not yet and not that I know of.

 

Q: What do you think was the high point of your life in the clan, and what was the low point?

A: Haven’t been here too long so I’m not sure there is one or the other. 

 

Q: So far how would you rate the “FT13th experience TM” overall?

A: A pretty awesome experience so far.

 

Q: In one word, what does this clan mean to you?
