    Just was looking over donation prices cause I was thinking about doing it. And I noticed something that I'm not sure if it was a mess up or not. But here is my case:

    1 Month: $3.99x12=$47.88
    3 Months: $10.98x4=$43.92
    6 Months: $19.98x2=$39.96
    12 Months: $37.80x1=$37.80


    Now if you subtract each one you get this:

    1 Month Total - 3 Month Total = $3.96 Cheaper for 3 Months over 1 Month
    3 Month Total - 6 Month Total = $3.96 Cheaper for 6 months over 3 Months
    6 Month total - 12 Month Total = $2.16 Cheaper for 12 Months over 6 Months




    • Now why is it that 12 Months over 6 Months is $1.80 less than all the others?
    Just something I caught while reviewing the prices of what I wanted to get. :rolleyes:

    So that people with too much time on there hands and a keen eye can have something to do.

    I'd probably just put it down to the whole idea of the more you buy, a general discount incurs.

    It is designed that way to encourage people to make a bigger investment ;) You get more value for 12 months.

    The point he's making is the first two 'packages' are the same numerical discount over the previous 'package'. The last one is a smaller numerical discount.

    Boojum, you always know exactly what I mean. :) Lol
    Some people just overlook the little details and focus around the basic question at the bottom. Haha

    eh Ditto =)

    To give a heads up we are planing to reworking a lot of stuff as well as offer more which is why many area's of the site are a little out of date.

    A lot is still in the workings :wow:

    Can you hint at anything or is it strictly private?
    Should I wait a little longer before I decide to donate or not? =D

    BLAST! :eek:hmy: Dang, well , can't blame a guy for tryin' :p

    Maybe a round about date of when these "updates" might come into effect? like a month or a few months or a couple weeks? Nothing precise though...
