    Ok, here we go.

    After the suggestion was made yesterday and near universal agreement among board members that it was a great idea (when has that ever happened?), we're moving forward with the idea of raising money for the Haruka Weiser Fund with the Ban Hammer Telethon.

    Here are the details.

    1. You can ban/suspend anyone Orangebloods member (non-staff member) for a day at the cost of $100. Just pledge your $100 in this thread and name the poster you want to put in OB jail.

    Here's an added twist to the Jail Game that we're playing. After the first $100 towards a poster is dedicated, every $100 donated in their name will result in an extra day or timeout.

    Limit of two weeks per poster, unless multiple sides agree.

    You can donate more than $100 per each person if you want to. We'll call it the @PowerSpread rule. For those don't know, PowerSpread dared someone to spend the money to ban him and @jstalcup1 pledged $1600 to suspend him 16 days IF @PowerSpread agreed to match the bid for $900, thus creating a $2500 donation to the fun for his 16-day suspension.

    Both are OB legends in my book after that.

    2. We're not going to force you against your will to take a suspension. This is supposed to be a fun idea to raise money for a cause that should be something dear to all of us. You can either post in the thread that you're ok with your paid suspension or I will reach out to every personally through email/PM to discuss approval. If someone isn't comfortable with a timeout, we'll handle things very quietly behind the scenes so that you can object in private without it being a public matter.

    Again, this is supposed to a good thing, not a bad thing.

    3. Because it will be really difficult to get an itemized list of donors from the school that we would be able to cross-reference to confirm that each payment has been made, we're going to set this up so that everyone pays via paypal (email me if that's a problem and we'll work something out). I'll do all of the heavy lifting behind the scenes in terms of creating a spreadsheet and then cross-checking the payments as they come in. Once that is done, I'm going to forward the full amount via paypal to @SkoalBrother77, who has been so critical in putting this together.

    If anyone has a better idea about handling the money, I'm all ears. The one thing Orangebloods can't do is make the direct payment to the fund ourselves because in theory it could open up a huge can of worms and technically would violate our contract with Yahoo, which is why the plan is to transfer the funds to @SkoalBrother77

    4. The campaign will officially end at noon on Saturday.

    5. Send all payments to gkketch@gmail.com via paypal. "Send money to friends and family" as opposed to "pay for goods or services." Otherwise, PayPal will dig their grubby little paws in and take out 3%.

    ****

    I think that's it. Have fun. Play Nice. Let's do something good.

    May want to make it clear that PayPal payments should be sent as "friends and family" so it's free of fees.

    Be a lot more fun if we could sereptitiously blast tits under their user name, then have you send them a note telling them they have been banned for blasting tits.

    Would be a lot more rambunctious.

    Is there a set date for the ban? I want it to be after the auction so they can participate.

    Will likely lead to a rise in OB prison gangs.

    It should be noted that those prison unis aren't Texas Orange. Gotta get that fixed.

    This is incredible. I can't believe it has taken this turn, but it's great.

    The judge will take it into account at your sentencing hearing.

    I'm one of the invisible OBs. I am banning myself @hookemharv.

    If an invisible OB falls on a self-ban, wood anybody notice...

    Can we pay to ban Ketch? Or Sochumel so we can enjoy a Girl of the Day free-for-all?
