Default Send your friend (or yourself!) a special gift badge this holiday season!

Do you love your friends? How about Anime-Planet.com? Want to show your support to both over the holidays? We have a gift for you - gift badges!

By making a donation on Anime-Planet through Jan 15, 2012, you can gift one of a number of new badges to either a friend, or yourself. As always, donations directly benefit the site, helping to pay for the server costs (our two servers cost $405 a month alone), and keep new features and upgrades in development.

Check to see if you're listed in the below pending/awarded sections - it's always fun to send a gift as thanks!

PENDING GIFTS


AWARDED GIFTS


How it works:

1. Choose a badge
Select from one of the specified donation levels below - this is the donation amount for which the gift badge is awarded.


2. Choose a recipient & message
Choose a username on Anime-Planet.com, or you can also gift the badge to yourself! You can also write an optional message.

You must include this information, the name of the badge, and your own username, in the 'special instructions' field on the donation page:



3. Make the donation
Click here to make the donation! (there is also a donation button on the Users homepage

------------------------------------------

Donation Levels

$50 Level



--------------

$20 Level



--------------

$10 Level



--------------

$5 Level



--------------

Now that you've chosen a badge, click here to make the donation!

Include the recipient username (or say it's for yourself), the name of the badge, an optional message, and your own username, in the 'special instructions' field on the donation page:



Gift badges are added manually and will be posted to the recipient's account within a day or two. Thank you for your patience!

----------------

Frequently-asked questions:

When can I donate to get these badges?
From today, up to midnight (PST) on January 15th, 2012.

Will you post these donation badges again in case I miss the deadline?
We will post these holiday badges again next year in December, with additional holiday badges to choose from.

Will you post more donation gift badges after January 15th?
We plan on posting sets of donation badges frequently throughout the year - the next batch will be a Valentine's Day set for the month of February. All of these special donation badges will have a time limit of when you can gift them.

Starting with the Valentine's Day set of badges, you will be able to donate via a badge page on the site, to make things easier for you.

Do I still get the other donation badges when I donate?
Yes! You will still receive the monthly (ie, November 2011 Supporter) badge, and your donation amount will add to the cumulative Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum badges.

Can I combine multiple badges into one donation?
Only for this set of holiday badges, yes - but you are responsible for doing the math, and you must include all of the information we need for each badge, in the 'Special Instructions' field. For future sets, there will be an easy button click to donate an exact amount per-badge.

Will my gift badge show up immediately?
No - badges are entered manually and make take up to a day or two to be added. We will update this thread with pending and already-awarded gift badges, so you can see the status.

I don't have any friends, but I want the badge ;_; (or, I do have friends, but I want the badge!)
Have no fear, you can donate to the site and gift yourself the badge!

Can I gift a badge to you (sothis) or other site staff?
Of course! Have a favorite character moderator, reviewer, or overlord? Want to donate but don't have someone in mind? Feel free to gift badges to anyone on the site, including staff ^_^

Are badges from staff still donations?
Yes! Gift badges are only awarded with a donation, even for staff (including sothis). For a badge to be gifted, the person had to have made a donation to the site.

Awesome! Should maybe have waited with my $50 donation I sent in earlier. Now my budget doesn't allow more donations right now

Love the Snow-cat badge, it's so cute!
