Breathe a little deeper, should you need to come undone



Hey everybody,

As I'm sure you're all aware there is currently a wave of protests and rioting gripping the United States, brought about by the death of George Floyd. I believe this issue warrants your attention, and a lot of you are probably wondering what the next step is or where this is all going.

Currently I think the best thing a lot of us can really do in a situation like this is to listen and educate ourselves; to better understand and appreciate why this is happening and what you can do to help.
This Googledoc is a good compiled resource of what is currently happening, events, petitions, educational material, and places to donate.

So what can you do to help and show your support?

Well would you like this Gangtag?


Great! Because the ONLY way to get it is too make a donation supporting the protests currently happening in America and around the world; and bringing further attention to this injustice.

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

Here's what to do
1.) Make a donation (Any amount, do not donate above your means)
- This GoogleDoc has a list of places to donate which actively support the protests
- You can also donate to the split bail fund, to help protesters make bail
- Make a donation or purchase elsewhere that supports the protests (And you can prove it)
2.) Post a pic ITT proving you have donated
3.) I will queue up this fabulous Gangtag for you:



No donation.
No tag.


There is a limit of 2 Gangtags MAX
- If you have more than 1 Gangtag, please let me know what tag you would like to keep alongside 'Only Trust Your Fists'.
- If you do not elect one, I will choose ~the prettiest~

If you have already donated
Link evidence here if you would like the tag!

Please edit out your personal info in the donations
Unless you would like the whole world to be knowing your business.

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

If you would like to join in the discussion
- US Riot Thread in GBS
- Cool Zone in C-Spam
- If you can recommend any other worthwhile discussion threads on this issue please let me know so I can direct people to them.

And remember kids.

Bonus variant:
<<I won't be able to give this to you as a tag

(You can technically buy yourself a new avatar with the tag if you don't want to donate)

Infinitum can you replace the space buds one for me? If I can actually only keep 2 give me cool zone & fists, please, but ideally I'd like Triangulo de Muerte/Cool Zone/Fists

A new rule has been implemented for Games, and we're cutting tags down to 2 whenever new tags are being handed out.

Sorry mate

(Zone + Fists it is)

Unfortunately this is not being uploaded as a tag.

You can buy it for yourself as a new avatar if you like. (Then I'll edit back in your old av with it as a tag)

Please don't donate above your means; especially if you have bills to pay and food to buy.

Even if it's only a few dollars, every little bit helps.

OK good news, tag is now official.



If you are buying a new avatar later, here is the code for the tag.
code:

Bad news, it has been requested that the tags be handed out in small batches (As it gunks up the mod queue)
I will be handing them out as quickly as I can, and I thank you for your patience! Everybody who has donated will be getting the tag!

Hey, would like in on this and hope this direct debt instruction for the UK Green & Black Cross collective @GBCLegal suffices, their online donation system isn't very smooth.



Please let us know how much you've donated for the tally~

Comrade Koba posted:

wish I could give more but am literally poor as gently caress rn

Don't be like that! As 100YrsofAttitude said, every dollar counts and this thread alone is over $18,500 already! You've done a great thing by supporting the cause!

It is much more important to look after your home situation first before making a donation.
Please don't ever donate above your means, and you shouldn't ever feel upset or ashamed about that.

Buy this as your new avatar.


Then ask me very nicely to restore your old avatar, and I will give you both Fists + Police tags

Linking your old av as reference jic you do it.


(If other people want this, you will need to buy the Police tag as your avatar as well. I can't do freebies unfortunately, and it helps Lowtax with server funds)

Infinitum
Jul 30, 2004

Going to bed. Will queue next batch after work tomorrow.

Zodium posted:

also please restore my old avatar.

It's queued. Let me know if spacing is OK.
It wasn't designed to be a double tag.

quote:

if anyone loses their avatar, you can find them stored as userid-avatarid.png. avatar number go up one each change. so for me my new avatar is https://fi.somethingawful.com/safs/titles/ae/52/00057081.0002.png and the old one is 0001. i guess there may be a limit or time limit, idk.

Rephrase: Infinitum is a lazy IK and doesn't want to do work. So link the avatar for me so I do less work

gently caress it, I haven't spent enough money for this website after years of service and I love both of these texts.

This here is my old av, no need for the text below it:



I'd appreciate it if the phrases can be in the appropriate order, but if not that's cool.

I can't use imgur (or other website links)
You need to link your previous avatars URL or it won't work

Which looks like this
https://fi.somethingawful.com/safs/titles/d0/ff/00199607.0001.gif

(SA forums do not allow direct linking to other sites as part of your avatar. It has to be hosting on SA)

It's still findable on the server, I believe. I have no idea how to do it, but I've seen people that know how to find the URL find old avatars.

I know how to find them, but depending on the age of the avatar it could be in a couple of different folders; so it's easier to just link it for me


100YrsofAttitude posted:

I see.

So, you've done that for me then. I think. I'm sorry I'm really bad at this stuff...

All good mate, don't stress. I have queued the old avatar + tags back up.

If the spacing is weird I'll just add a couple of pixels to the police tag to even it out.

Tomorrow
Cause it's 1am.
And I'm sleepy


(Or another goon could do it for me. Like 2-3 pixels in height to the top. That'd be sweet)
(Again. Lazy)

I'm still at work, and all I can say is that I'm very very proud of everybody in this thread.

I know there's also a lot of people out there that want to donate and can't, but they need to ensure their home situation is solid first before worrying about donations

Goons are good people

OK I promise I won't nod off at my computer next time

Next batch is queued! I will have a word with the mods+admins to see if I can push a bigger queue through, because you arseholes keep loving donating money and you deserve your tags lickity split!
(I make no promises though)

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

With regards to people who buy a new avatar to get the dual tags.

Use this image instead from now on, as it adds spacing and will look better.



People who I have previously done this for, I will fix you up the next time someone buys it (cause then I can use that url to fix yours )

Reminder to link your previous avatar in a post for me before you buy the 'Police' one, like this:

Epsilon Plus posted:

I will do this.



Again as a reminder I will ONLY do this for people who donate + buy a new avatar.
No freebies.
