As doing the "financial contributor" pins is a manual process, it's a bit slower than normal - several hundred donations create a bit of a backlog.
That said, if you have a PayPal email address different from the one your username on EB is under, I won't be able to align them and credit your account. If you think your not aligned, drop me a message with your PayPal email address and EB username and I can search it from there.

I know that there are still difficulties with the mass email, so that this is just by site use (the home page banner) and word of mouth and forum, it's a really impressive number. I know that a fair number of prints have been shipped to those who went that route - all the ones on my end (I have all of the copies of the remaining last 3-4 series prints) went out on Saturday so the couple since then have not yet gone out. I'll try and check in on the others (Pollocks, Koziks, Phillips, etc.) and see if we have shipping confirmed.
As always, my thanks...
I emailed when I paid -- I just wanted to make the donation, but I didn't need the print associated with it. I didn't get a reply. Can you make sure that nothing was shipped to me? I won't be around to accept a delivery anytime soon. Give it to someone else. Thx.

Do you need to email when you donate?

I just paid, will follow up with an email if need be.

Yes... in the interest of stability and overall improvement of the site, we will be upgrading the forums as well. Think that's understandable...

As many of you have probably seen now, the email is starting to get out and make the rounds. About 7,000 members were contacted yesterday and will continue to progress until all registered accounts receive it.
The current tally puts us just a bit shy of the half way mark - just over $14,000 raised as of this morning. Bit surprised that it's managed to get this far so quickly, but amazed by the community as well.
