    New Website - Donor System Tutorial.

    Version 1.0
    Editor Used Notepad++




    Why should I Donate to iO?
    I'll tell you why!

    Every single penny donated goes directly to the running costs of iO and those running costs sure are a hefty penny. The more people donating, the more servers, the more giveaways and ultimately the more fun and the better the iO community will be. So if you can throw iO a few bucks a month in exchange for the millions of fun days/nights the community provides, it will go a long way.


    What are the benefits of Donating?

    Various "Donation Packages" can be earned based on how much you donate, the packages iO currently offer can be seen below and are sorted by lowest to highest price. Server benefits from the previous donation package are also granted to the next higher package. When you donate the Donation Benefits only last for a Single Month (30-Days) this means that if you donate $5 for the Bronze Donation Package on September 1st, 2009, your Donation benefits will only last until October 1st, 2009.

    Bronze Donation Package
    ($5 - $9)
    Forum Benefits


    • Bronze badge recognition.
    • 15 Bonus iO Rep Points
    • Increased offensive rep ability to 15%



    Server Benefits



    • Invulnerable during humiliation round.
    • Customized in-game menu by typing !donormenu to control all donor plugin settings.
    • In-game advertisements disabled.
    • All chat outlined in bright green to signify that you're a supporter!




    Silver Donation Package ($10 - $19)
    Forum Benefits


    • Silver badge recognition.
    • 20 Bonus iO Rep Points
    • Increased offensive rep ability to 20%



    Server Benefits



    • Auto team balance immunity.
    • Confetti animation on all deaths, so everyone will know they've killed an upper-tier donor!
    • Ability to gibb on all melee kills!
    • All Bronze server benefits are also granted to Silver Donors.




    Gold Donation Package ($20+)
    Forum Benefits


    • Gold badge recognition.
    • 25 Bonus iO Rep Points
    • Increased offensive rep ability to 25%



    Server Benefits



    • Fireworks on all damaging effects against you to signify your gold donor status.
    • Ability to gibb with all weapon kills!
    • A beacon of fire during the humiliation round to cause damage to other players in range.
    • All Bronze & Silver server benefits are also granted to Gold Donors.




    How do I donate?
    Now that you know what the benefits are you may be asking, "Well how do I donate to iO?". I'll try to explain the steps in which you donate to iO as clearly as possible, providing as many pictures as possible! (The following section will be formatted in steps to make it easier to understand)

    Step 1: Navigate to iOGaming's Donation Page, either through the iO Homepage by clicking on "General" tab and selecting "Donate"



    Or click on this link (http://iogaming.net/donate) to be re-directed to the donation page, proceed to Step 2 when you have completed Step 1.


    Step 2:
    Now that you're on the donation page enter an amount you wish to Donate into the Donation box located on the left half of the Donation Page. Proceed to Step 3 when you have entered your amount that you wish to donate to iO, this money is non-refundable so please take a few minutes to think before you make any decisions.


    In this picture 1337 is the amount of the donation we will be giving to iO



    Step 3: Now that you've decided on the amount of the Donation that you wish to send to iO you now have to choose between either of the below options (displayed in the image below).



    Donate - This option will donate the sum you put into the Donation Box to iO once, this option will not make a recurring payment.

    Subscribe - This option will donate the amount you put into the Donation Box monthly, that means every month the amount you subscribed to will automatically be subtracted from your Paypal Account or Charged to your Visa, Mastercard, Discover Card or American Express.

    When you have decided on an option proceed to Step 4a for a Single Donation or Step 4b for a Recurring Subscription to iO.

    Step 4a: Now that you have chosen a Donation Type you will now be asked to provide your payment information or asked to Log into Paypal, if you've chosen to Log into Paypal this is where the guide will end for you if you've chosen to enter your payment information continue reading below.

    Once all the information in the picture below is filled out you can click on "Review Donation and Continue" to proceed to the last confirmation step, it's pretty straight forward from here so this is where the guide will end.


    Picture above is the credit card information required to continue to donate to Paypal


    Country:
    Select the country in which you reside, for most people this will be America, if it isn't select the proper result from the drop down box.

    First Name:
    Provide your First Name in this field (This name must be the correct first name that appears on the Credit Card)

    Last Name: Provide your Last Name in this field (This name must be the correct last name that appears on the Credit Card)

    Credit Card Number:
    Self Explanatory, this is the 12 - 18 digit number that appears on the front of the card, the position on the front is determined by the Credit Card provider.

    Payment Type: Click on the image which applies to your credit card, currently as iO uses Paypal to receive Donations you are limited to Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover Cards.

    Expiration Date:
    This is the date that the Credit Card you've chosen to make the payment with expires, this date is most commonly on the back of the card, the format which this date must be entered is Month / Year (ex. 04 / 09 where 04 is April and 09 is 2009)

    CSC:
    Card Security Code (CSC) is the 3 digit security code located most commonly on the back of your Credit Card, this needs to be filled in for the payment to be charged to your Credit Card.

    Billing Address Line 1:
    This is the street on which you live, type in your full address, excluding town, country and Zip / Postal Code.

    Billing Address Line 2: This is the continuation of your Billing Address from Line 1, things like Apartment Numbers, Town House Numbers, etc may go here, anything else should be entered in Billing Address Line 1.

    City:
    The City in which you currently reside.

    State:
    This is the State in which you live, assuming you Live in America, if you live in Canada this will change to Provence when that happens this is the Provence you live in. (Ex. NY, AZ, ON, AB, etc)

    Zip Code: This is your 5 Digit Zip Code, if Canada is selected in "Country" this will change to Postal Code, if this is the case you'll be required to enter both of the 3 digit codes (ex. 90210, L8Y 1K9)

    Home Phone: This should match the home phone number of the card holder.

    Email: This one is pretty simple, enter your email. (ex. BigBalling18237@Yahoo.com, Triggy101@gmail.com, etc)

    If the image below should appear re-enter the amount you want to donate to iO monthly and press the "Update Total" button under the total box, sometimes this option doesn't show up and sometimes it does.




    Once the above image is taken care of it's now time to enter your Payment information, the below image should be what you're seeing and the information below the image is what each field means, fill all of this out and press the "Review Donation and Continue" button to proceed to the Confirmation Step of your donation.

    Do the benefits of whatever package last forever? Or for only a month?

    I.e. if I were to make a one-time donation of $25 (gold package), would i get all the in-game benefits of the gold package for all eternity, or for just a short time following my donation?

    The month donated or a month since donation. Because I just donated on the 31st of August. Will my benefits disappear tomorrow?

    And what does this mean?:
    * 25 Bonus iO Rep Points
    * Increased offensive rep ability to 25%

    25 BOnus iO Rep Points means a total # of Rep Points will be added to your account after donating, this is currently not working and being worked on. The Offensive Rep I imagine is the amount of time you need to wait between neg and pos repping someone but I will probably need to be corrected with this statement.

    Nice guide Wildfire. Only one thing missing.

    Note: You get the previous tiers and the current tiers worth of benefits unless one of the benefits is more powerful(like the weapon gibbs).
