Thanks Squishy,

I was also thinking of maybe a donator badge for ingame, its nothing special and doesnt give an advantage all it does is show that you have supported the game with a donation. Maybe.

that would be really neat, would add some flare to the game, could do badges for a bunch of things like to show you are a past age winner.

could also do this on forums, there is a badge/award extension in the phpbb website listing

Are the donations based on the donor page in USD or AUD? Also does it make in difference (financially) if I donated in that specific currency as opposed to good old British Pounds?

Hi Squishy, I was aware of the different currencies. What I should of said was, does it incur more costs to Bon, if I sent in GBP, as opposed to AUD?

PayPal take a fee from each donation but it is the same amount regardless of currency.

Donation done 👍 though it appears to have stayed as dollars and not adjusted for the currency difference of GBP. Probably because PHP cannot tell the difference?

To be honest I just did my donation directly from Paypal so I could see the conversion instantly and ensure that what was received was what I wanted to send. I dont know how it would do conversions on the Forums itself.

how much would one have to donate to have ads running for a charity of ones choice?
