Well, I was browsing the Community, as I do each evening, and I noticed a Forum that's not normally there (the Supporter's HQ) and when I checked, I was suddenly a Tier 2 supporter, and I just wanted to ask why this is. I'm curious, since I don't think I've donated anything yet.

Thanks!

Someone must have donated for you.

Thanks! That clears it up.

A lot of members that won in the egg hunt have been donating for other people that are non supporters~ Perhaps you were donated to anonymously. :3

But when I was gifted to I was sent a message from Steve with the image and he asked if I wanted to accept.

Are you sure you weren't donating for yourself? I never got a message like that when I was donated for.

Team fail donated Tier one to me. I think you can donate without giving a Gift card and the OP's donator probably did.

Perhaps Steve sent out messages as Team Fail was donating to a lot of people at once, apparently; he also gave me a Tier 1 giftcard, which Steve PM'd me about.

I don't understand how else you would know who donated for you if you weren't PM'd about it. =/

Some people would like them not knowing and then be like. I gotcha crap now gimmie stuff.

But there is a giftcard thread. And I was given a giftcard too. So I assume you can do it without Steve telling.

The giftcard isn't required. You can donate, and have the choice of doing it without the person you're donating to knowing. In those cases, perhaps Steve / Rukario just doesn't notify the receiving member.

/phone post fffff

yup..
if prize winner requested a gift card for giving their winnings, they were sent out.. all other prizes were done anonymously or directly to the winner.

not all were gifts and there is no separation from those that are gifts.

DONATIONS! That's how you become a Supporter! Can someone link me to the thread that explains all this, because I'm drawing a big mental blank. We are talking money, right? Because I have money. If we're talking like donating SKILLS or something, then I have nothing to offer :P

I still haven't gotten my upgrade yet. Do winner that had a supporter already but wanted to update their Tier with the card will get a updrade?

We're still discussing what we'll do about that ^___^; If we decide on supporters not getting "upgrades", we'll just PM you guys to tell us who else you'd want to donate to.

I don't think that would be fair at all, like they earned it? Just because they already donated doesn't mean anything... Even though I don't apply...

Meaning that someone that won figured you deserved supportership and gave part of their prize to you. :)

I actually have to agree with this. There were some (I imagine all) winners who put in a lot of time just trying to find all those eggs hidden around the forum, and if they wish to use their prize to update someone else's supporter status, then so be it. It's their winnings, they should be able to choose who they want to give it to regardless of the user's current status. I have nothing to gain from this obviously, but I don't think it's fair that a person has to be told that they can't give it to someone just because they're already a supporter or even a staff member. Not really much of a prize if a user can't even do what they wish with it in their way.

Actuallyyyy, since then, the prizes had been given out to the rest of the supporters, which was mostly a misunderstanding. :)

As Rekky said it isn't really about making stuff that people like it's more about being good friends with someone and they feel like being kind to you and putting some tiers (or one) your way.

Send a message to Rukario telling him what email address you want and he will set it up for you. I'm pretty sure that's the gist of it.
