    So that's amazing, and immediately jumped us well over the goal. I have no idea who the donator was, but if you're reading this, thank you!

      A.S. Congratulations! I have a small cosmetic idea: when the goal is met, change the progress bar colour to the Exemplary one.

    Props to @umbrae for boosting! Also incredible bitcoin donation, with two and a half grand, holy moly!

    @Deimos I have a question regarding donation policy: if the goal is met, is the surplus going to the next month or will it only count towards this month?

      I hadn't decided about that yet (I wasn't expecting to start hitting the goal so soon), but I'll make an official post tomorrow and that can be one of the parts we talk about. My general feeling is that rolling it over is probably a good idea, so that large one-time donations don't lose some of their impact.

        I don't know how you (plan to) manage your international financials but from a psychological perspective (speaking as a complete layman) it somehow seems smarter to give the bar the ability to overshoot (maybe even visually) and then start with a blank slate next month (to reduce donation fatigue)

      This came in after my match call I believe so likely unrelated, I’m obviously stoked though! Props to whoever donated!
