Ok kids, here's the deal. RPA is free to play, and we want to always always always keep it that way. But the fact is that it costs money to keep this place up and running. Hosting fees, forum software, etc etc etc. And while the admins will give anything to keep this place as fantastic as it can be, there are limits to what we can buy.
SO! We've decided to start accepting donations! Wait wait wait. This isn't just a "hand over your money" thing.
Well, you could do that if you're just nice and want to make a donation. Any amount is fine and very much appreciated and will go a long way to help our forum!
But this is also a "pay a little bit and get something awesome in return" thing.
Yes, I said it. You get something so super awesome. It's our way of saying thanks for being here and for supporting our site.
Are you ready for what it is that you get? Are you sure?
That's right ladies and gentlemen, direct form the boutiques of Paris, London and Milwaukee... It's the first ever RPA Tee Shirt! This was designed by the mods and admins and it will look SO GOOD on your hot body! Look cool! Impress your friends. Be the envy of everyone around you as you strut your stuff in RPA's stylish apparel.
"OMG!" I hear you say. "I must have that! How much do they cost?" Well, they cost nothing. They are our gift to you!
With a donation of only $25 or more, you can have one of these sweet shirts of your very own. We won't even charge shipping within the US(Shipping charges may apply if outside the US. See details below)
AND AND AND you will also get a free RPA Supporter trophy for your profile. RAD.

Donations can be made via PayPal, money order, cashier's check, Western Union, or personal check. Note: Money order, cashier checks and personal check donations won't ship until receipt of said donation method. Personal check donations will ship once the check has cleared. If using any of these methods to donate, please contact Anne Bonny and your gift will be reserved for 14 days. If the donation has not been received in this time, the gift will then become available again to the general public.
Shipping charges may apply for addresses outside the US. Otherwise, shipping within the US of A is free, and that includes Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Guam! If you are an international donator, your total donation needs to go up a smidge to cover higher shipping costs. Please up the total donation amount to $35!
So how do you get one? PM Anne Bonny! She needs to know your desired size. She'll give you the address to send your payment, or the Western Union info, or the Paypal info, whichever you prefer. And tell her where you want that sucker shipped to!
NOTE: If you use the donate button on the front page for an amount equal to or above the amount you need to get a shirt, you must pm Anne Bonny in order to get it! We need to work out shipping info and sizes and all that fun stuff.
Now, we only have a limited quantity to start out, so donations will be done on a first come first serve basis!
Coming in the future... more RPA swag as gifts for different donation amounts!
T-Shirt (and other merch) design contests!
Photo contests of people with RPA swag in awesome places!
The possibilities are endless!
