@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 11:15 PM)

Correct

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 10:37 PM)

So correct me if I'm wrong... it's good that we see the ads, but it's better if we click them?

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 05:24 PM)

I wonder if any other blockers (javascript, etc) are triggering it. I hate to do it but I have to do something. I don't want to be like Forbes that makes the site un-usable with adblock.. but I do want to remind people that ads are necessary.

@  Dracula : (16 January 2017 - 01:23 PM)

Yeah I had turned off adblock a while ago and got the same message last night.

@  Lazy Garou : (16 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

anyone seen the korean method 1?

@  Arazyr : (16 January 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I got something similar recently. I think it was due to the site being set up to use https. AdBlock counted it as a different site. I had to update my settings.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2017 - 09:31 AM)

I got it this morning, but it turns out my ad blocker was actually on. I could have sworn I turned it off for the allspark already though...

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, so did I. Only one time though.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Got a popup saying I'm using ad-block on this site when I am not. Huh.

@  Bass X0 : (16 January 2017 - 02:29 AM)

In that case I say it is survival of the cutest! Do I hear a second on that? And against?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 January 2017 - 01:24 AM)

The platypus is nature's way of saying "I made this from scraps I found on the floor, and it can STILL hug you up."

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2017 - 11:05 PM)

That's what they WANT you to think. They're already a mashup of at least 3 other creatures. Platypi are already Megazords by themselves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2017 - 10:52 PM)

But it's a platypus.. They don't really do anything.

QUOTE(Original Post by Galenraff)
As you may remember (or can read about here if you don't), last year we raised $2340 in just under a week to donate to the Hasbro Children's Hospital om an amazing show of community action for a great cause! Well we're going for round 2 as we try and make this an annual event!

With a deadline of February 28, we're setting a goal of raising $5000 for the Hasbro Children's Hospital in order to become a Bronze Sponsor at their annual gala in early March. We're suggesting a $5 minimum donation per person, but of course any amount will be appreciated. And hopefully many of you will be able to either donate more or will be able to pull together some spare change a few times during the month.

Just like last year, I'll collect all the money and take point in donating to HCH. Or, if you don't really care about the fees and just want something quick and convenient, you can use this awesome widget put together by Daytonus!



Yes, this is a big goal, but this is also a community that has proven it can rise to great challenges for good causes, and after we shattered 3 consecutive goals last time out, I really just wasn't comfortable underestimating you again. Thank you all so much for what I'm sure will be an awesome effort!


QUOTE(Valentine message from Daytonus)


Celebrate Valentine's Day with Cannonball and the Allspark as we give the gift of love and compassion to the patients at Hasbro Children's Hospital. Regardless of whether you're single or spoken-for, the Allspark Staff has come up with some suggestions for making that day even more special!

* Getting flowers for that special someone? Consider buying a smaller bunch, or even a single rose (see some ways to make that not look cheap), and donating the difference to the charity drive.
* Instead of buying something, make something! It'll mean more to the person anyway.
* Single? Show that your heart is bursting with love regardless by giving to the drive!
* Looking? Impress that guy or gal with your generosity. Trust us, philanthropy is sexy.

Tell us what you are doing this Valentine's Day!

Should have my tax return in about a week. Normally I "celebrate" by throwing a little money at some toys I've been holding off on. This year I'm going to donate that money instead. icon-ironhide.gif

I've got some money in my Paypal account that I'm using for this, but I'm not sure how to get it reflected in our total. Can I send money to myself? icon-fire.gif

I'll figure that out.

Thanks for the great support we're already seeing everyone, mere hours after this going live!

Matched my most recent Transformer purchase (thus the weird number). I figure if I've got money to spend on toys, I've got money for charity.

Thank you!

As an aside, if you don't use the widget to donate, the graph won't immediately update, since Galen has to send me the numbers to enter manually. That's totally okay, I just want to be clear so people don't expect the tally to go up as soon as they Paypal their cash.

I'll have to get some money together. Trying to save money to buy my own place, so I might not be able to contribute as generously as I did last time, but we'll see. But given what I spend on toys, if I can't pony up the change, then that's a major moral failing on my part.

I was still over at TFW when you guys did this last year... in addition to making cash contributions, could we put toys up on the auction block for the cause?
