Nintendaan and I have been talking and we thought it would be cool to get RMC something for his birthday (August 19th)! The current idea is a Japanese 3DS so RMC can play the exclusives/access their eShop, but dependant on the interest involved we could always get him some art for the warehouse, some cool video game related figures, or any amount of cool swag if we can't reach the amount we'd need for the 3DS! We thought it would be a good pick-me-up for RMC after the advertising debacle, and show him that we're all behind him and his work (especially seeing as he refuses to accept donations for running the site.) Basically, what I would like from you guys is to sound off in this thread if you would be interested in contributing any amount of money (no matter how small, any amount is welcome!) to getting him a gift. I'll also put together a card in Flash and add everyone who contributed's names to that, and send it over on the day. We'll be doing this through Paypal, and whilst we haven't got all the nuts and bolts in place yet, I'd like anyone interested to please let us know either in this topic or by private message. Cort and MomBrain both know about this, but RMC doesn't (both because it would be a nice surprise, and he'd almost certainly refuse a gift as humble/stubborn as he is ) so please, whether you are or aren't interested in contributing, please keep this quiet. Cort has advised me RMC rarely has time to visit the boards so this thread should be ok. Anyway, let us know if you'd be interested in kicking in a couple bucks, and if you have any ideas for what we can buy him if we can't afford a Japanese 3DS, please add that in as well!
*EDIT* Also, please pass on a link to this thread by PM to any other members you think might be interested. It's tough publicising something AND keeping it secret at the same time! Remember, it's a secret to
Thanks so much for your time guys, you're aces.
