Donation System - Now High Tech!

Postby TC on Sun Jun 15, 2008 6:41 pm

The donation system for UKCS has gone high tech! Clicking on the "Donate" icon on will bring up a player selection box. It should automatically identify your player name and details. If it doesn't recognise you automatically, or you want to donate a reserved slot to somebody, then you can use the player search facility.

Once you've identified the player, you're then prompted to select which player name you want to appear on the sponsor page. It displays up to the last 40 names in order of most recent to select from.

You then enter your own message you want to appear on the sponsor page. This can be anything you like as long as its appropriate for a public web page. Then enter the amount you'd like to donate which is always in British Pounds. Automatic currency conversion will be applied if you're not from the UK.

Once you're happy with the details, you can then click Donate. This brings up the paypal window which gives you the option of donating by paypal, or by any other accepted card.

After completing the donation, the system will automatically update the sponsor page with your details, update your forum title with "Sponsor" or "Life Time Sponsor" (assuming you have your steamid if your profile), send you a confirmation email and enable the VIP on all servers immediately. :D

A donation's VIP works across all game servers of all game types irrespective of what you usually play.

The fact that its immediate means you can donate at anytime and get the immediate benefit. Previously the entire process was manual and reliant upon me not being out, at work, asleep or on holiday. :P

This new system is only for the players of servers , and means that the regulars that only use forums cant donate?
