    Arrow No credit card? No Problem! HOW TO DONATE!

    Like most of you, I wish to contribute to this great CS community, the likes of which I have never seen before. *Servers don't come cheap, and that is certainly the case with Noob Galore, which has several servers running 24/7 for YOUR gaming pleasure. *So, how do you contribute? *Well, besides putting in your time at community venues like the IRC channel, the Teamspeak channel, and, of course, the ubiquitous NG forums, you can also help out the community by donating some cold, hard cash. *Now, how do you that when you don't have a bank account or a credit card? *It may surprise some of you, but there are ways. *So shut up, sit down, and let Professor Hushx school your ass.

    Option #1

    This is probably the simplest way of donating money to the server fund. *Here is how it works:

    1. *Purchase a Visa, American Express, or Discover "Gift Card". *What are these? *They are basically pre-paid debit cards which you can use anywhere, just like a normal debit/ATM card issued by a bank. *You can literally purchase them at your local market or pharmacy. *They are available in $25 increments (so $25, $50, etc). **NOTE: *You will have to pay a $3.95 activation fee at the register. *The cashier activates the card by scanning it.*

    2. *In order for you to use the card to make online purchases (in this case a donation to NG), go to the website provided above OR call the number on the back of the card (1-800-699-9708). **I had to end up calling the number since for some reason the card wouldn't work on the website, but maybe that was just with me. *Either way it takes less than 5 minutes.* *After 30 minutes, the card should be active, and you can start using it.

    3. *Go to Paypal.com, and register for a new account (This step is optional if you already have an existing account with Paypal). *

    4. *After logging in, on the left side of the screen, click "Add Credit Card".

    5. *Input your new debit gift card number, including the 3-digit security code on the back of your card.

    6. *Go to the Noob Galore website, click "Paypal Donate" on the right hand side of the screen, click the amount you want to donate, which should then take you back to Paypal's website.

    7. *Hit "Confirm", after which (VERY IMPORTANT STEP), click "Go back to Merchant". *Only by clicking this can your donation be acknowledged on the NG website.

    8. *Your done! *Thanks for helping out the community.


    Option #2. *

    1. *Go to a bank or your local post office.

    2. *Ask for a money order.

    3. *Specify the amount you want (i.e., "I want $20 on the order please")

    4. *Pay the amount and the service tax (note: *the post office is always going to be cheaper than a bank).

    5. *Write your own address. *Make the money order out to "Galore Gaming"-fill in the address as:

    Adam Piatek C/O Galore Gaming
    1A Plumtree Drive
    Norwich CT, 06360
    USA

    6. *Put the money order into an envelope, fill in the To and From address, apply stamp, mail, and your done!

    NOTE: *Make sure to specify which type of money order you want; there's a domestic money order, which is good anywhere in US, hence the term "domestic", and there's an international money order, which is if you want to send money overseas. *The type you want is domestic. *If your based in another country like Great Britain, Royal Mail probably offers similar services, but in this case make sure to request an international/foreign money order.

    or if you wanna pay by cash, here's how to do it.

    Wrap it on 2 white papers inside the envelope and mail it to that address hush gave you. *

    There are also business envelopes with the thickly colored inside, so even if you hold it up against the sunlight, you won't be able to view whats inside. *Still, I would just send a check or money order-both are much more reliable, and its absolutely useless for anyone other than the person for whom its intended since names and address are written on them.

    Theres also an option #3 if u have a savings account or student account like me. if u have a check, if not get one, then go to paypal.com and register a free account. make sure u put all the info in correctly or there assholes and charge u 30 bucks or some crap. anways then u wait for the 2 deposits they put in ur account, there in the cents so not much. then it gives u instructions on the paypal site. so if u dont have a checking account then u can use this method. *

    man thats 3 things ive helped with today!

    Well I'm writing this with the mindset that some people here don't have a checking account to write a check with (who writes checks anymore anyway?). *Plus, you can't write a check using a Savings account-the whole point behind it is so you set aside a portion of your money to gather interest over time, like a long term investment, hence the term savings.


    Thank you dabomb-while I certainly appreciate your enthusiasm, your advice wouldn't really work in this case.
