Tell you what, I will give you an additional entry for each subsequent thousand dollars... and that goes for everyone.

Otherwise I am afraid not. While I thought of the option of per $X an entry, though that kind of misses the point and gives the mining magnates an unfair advantage.

Just an update. I have emailed people on the BNA Newsletter and am providing a status update.

To date 40% of the development costs are now funded via the BNA Crowd Funding - with over 100 contributions. I am looking to reach the 50% mark (so means I personally fund the rest). There is a ca. One in Five chance of winning one of the prizes in the $1800 prize pool.

Thank you kindly for everyone who has supported to date.
If you have submitted a contribution however not yet received any emails - let me know. I am responding within 24 hours, usually faster.


Relaunch - the planned relaunch is February 1, 2011. There should be little no affect on the forums and performance (though some offline time is expected).

Yay - we reach 50% today.
This is a fantastic milestone - half of the development costs for the relaunch have been funded by the community.

Being Christmas and the holiday season, some payments are a little slow so be rest assured that I will allow for time for payments to be received so everyone has a fair change to be included in the prize draw. For the few who are a month overdue, I recommend paying now rather than waiting so that we actually do reach the 50% and not fall short. (Winners announced on 09.01.2012).

In the background, I am working hard as are developers to get the new site ready and were are aiming strong for February 1. 2012.

The promotion CLOSES TOMORRO - so if you have been considering, this is your last chance to make a contribution and be entered into the prize draw.

The Crowd Funding Promotion has now closed.

Thank you everyone for your support - 135 people and business contributed with contributions that cover 54% of the development costs for relaunching BNA. There are still a number of outstanding contributions so make sure that if you have pledged but not paid, that you do so in the next few days to ensure you can be entered into the prize draw.

Winners will be announced on 09.01.2012!!

Happy New Year everyone.
