White Gold Wielder
Steward of Minas Tirith

 - ! Donation Icons Updated !  -

I would just like to thank everyone for their patience and generosity during my recent absence. We had many new donators as well as those that have given many times over the years.

Some went through Paypal (which makes it easy to pay Minas Tirith's bills) and some took the time to write a letter and fill out a money order or conceal some cash. I have kept every letter I've received over the years and it is quite a bundle by now!

It really warms my heart to know that so many of you care enough about Minas Tirith and the effort it takes to keep it running to give of yourself this way.

I am especially grateful for the donations during the recent illness of my father-in-law. With all that was going through my mind, it was a blessing to not have to worry about keeping this great ship afloat. With his health nearly fully restored and as I reflect on the faithful generosity of our citizens, the coming Spring never seemed so joyful.

I hope I may repay this in some part with renewed effort and a strengthened commitment to keep our city great.

Cheers to you all!

Your faithful steward,

White Gold Wielder

Yay! That little bronze button looks pretty good. []

I'm happy I could help out, WGW. You deserve all the help you can get for all the work you put into this place. []

I'm glad to hear that our donations seem to have encouraged you, WGW.

Along with your improved family health situation, of course!

And Paypal makes it easy to donate as well.

OK, at long last, the donation icons have been updated! And what's more, the page has had a minor re-vamp.

I have been dabbling with some more intensive programming with the UBB software, and I've been able to do a few things. If you go to the new Roll of Honor, you'll notice that everyone's name is a link. The link goes to their profile, but that's not the interesting thing.

The names are setup by your citizen number, so if you change your display name, it get's changed here automatically. It took me a lot of work to find everyone's number, especially those who have changed their name since they first donated! For example, Lord Mithrandir had one donation under Mithrander, but now they both show his current name.

There is one name I have yet to find a number for, since there is no citizen with that name any more. I couldn't find Hydra Etheral in my Paypal records or in a quick search of my old envelopes. If anyone remembers, let me know.

BTW, I just renewed my PO Box for another year ($48) and renewed the registration for minastirith.net also for another year ($35). This was possible through the donations I have received over the past months. Thanks you all!

It still makes me smile to get an envelope with a letter and $5 or whatever that person could afford. In the words of Jack Nicholson in "As Good as it Gets", "You make me want to be a better steward." []

BTW, if anyone spots any links to the Roll of Honor that still point to "thanks.html", let me know so I can correct that.

WGW, my last two donations are missing. They came out of my bank account via paypal for Apr and May but you don't have them on your list. Could you have missed them or has the money gone astray?

I did the envelopes, but I was too tired to get to Paypals. I'm sure they are there. I'll try to get it tonight. []

There should be a PayPal donation from me as well.

I know I have changed my user name after that [] , but I did include my citizen number.

But if no PayPal donations have been registered so far, that explains it []

Ah, some guy named GAETANO TINAT(!) snatched up .org right after I got .net. I was going to get .net and .org at the same time, but I was really strapped for cash at the time and didn't want to spend the extra $30. Soon after, I tried to get .org, but Gaetano(?) had already planted his flag.

He has it registered until 2006, but he has never had anything on it. I assume he squatted there in the hopes of picking up some New Line Cinema's Lord of the Rings money.

The purpose of having .net, aside from being cool, is simply to keep someone else from getting it. I don't need some wannabe Minas Tirith setting up shop next-door.

As far as www.MinasTirith.gov ...
