I know. I understand why. It just means my donation will take a little bit longer to get there.

I'll donate here in a week when I'm more financially stable...
(does this mean I get two custom titles then... )

And you can bet over the years I'll put a lot into supporting this awesome community.

You guys should sell merchandise. All you need to do is buy a bunch of plain colored shirts, slap some paint on them, and sell them on here and on other sites. When I say,"slap some paint on them," I mean put some sort of design on them. You could do 'Avatar' stuff. It fits, and it seems to me like 'Avatar' shirts are hard to come by. It's all about 'Twilight'. So yeah. I'd totally buy an 'Avatar' shirt from you guys.

This is Pandora Blueskins t-shirts thread (if you like it, PM misstammie, I think she "will provide" - she did for me, & I am proudly wearing one! (see my album).

this is a "sort of related to ToS t-shirts thread" - can't find the proper thread where you can order one for yourself In the end, the design was a 4-fingered Na'vi hand on the front (like on LearnNavi ones) and Tree of Souls logo on the back. There is a guy called Payoang, he is your man
(by the way this ^^^ T-shirt got high praises during the Seattle Meetup )

I wanted for myself a customized ToS t-shirt, with ToS background just as it is, colours & everything but I reckon that order was tooooooooooo tall... )

What I don't know is whether the sale of these t-shirts supports ToS? imho it would be nice!

Correct, I've designed a ToS T-shirt, which Payoang sells - that'd be it if you're interested in getting one.

The money earned from shirt sales is completely unrelated to ToS server costs, however, and goes directly to Payoang as far as I know.

oh, I didn't know it was you! that was an excellent design... I reckon the "wows" and "yays" of Avatar techie crew during the Avatar exhibition were the greatest compliments...

well erm it's everybody's free choice but it is sad for me to see that ToS has to specifically request extra donations... We also know that many Avatar fans /ToS members are students with very limited / zero income...

Can there be any other way - like that, selling merchandize, as suggested by BotanicalMedley - or any other?

No ads of course - your txim must be safe!

I'm glad you like the T-shirt design.

As for merchandise... actually, it may be possible. I'm looking into options as we speak - stay tuned!

I actually think it's quite impressive that we didn't have to make an actual request for them for nearly 17 months. Most sites have to bring it up all the time. Yet ToS has been able to sustain itself up to now without even reminding anyone.

As for merchandise, that's something we have to be really careful with. There can't be any material connection to Avatar, or anyone else's copyrights, at all. I'd much prefer to stick with the donations route. Really, we still have plenty of active people, to where if everyone who was able just gave $10 every few months, we'd be fine.

I am arranging for the selling of merchandise items with the Tree of Souls logo (and nothing else). The logo is made by me and me alone, so there are no copyright issues there. In a day or two you should all be able to buy things such as cups, water bottles, glasses, caps, mousepads, etc. - all with the ToS logo.

Opposed to the T-shirts, where no money to go funding ToS, all profit from these sales will go entirely to paying for the server costs.

As I said - stay tuned!

I'm in the same boat as Aketuan right now; I plan on donating, but I have to wait a bit here first.

You bet that I will though. I already have a custom rank planned out and everything.

OwO

that would be awesome. I would be very interested in this.

And although some of us already have the ToS shirt, you could create one similar to it (or the same) and also sell it here. I think it is the biggest item of interest...
