    Hello everyone! As we bring our very first year to a close, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your hard work and dedication to our growing community! Without you, we most certainly would not have conquered our obstacles and made it to where we are today.

    With that being said, I have some amazing news which comes with an insane opportunity! VaultF4 has received a generous offer from not just one, but TWO anonymous benefactors! These awesome people have informed us that they will be matching donations, during the month of October, 1:1 up to a maximum of $500 PER PERSON!!!! For example, $1 donation+$2 from benefactors=$3 for VaultF4!!! That's insane!!!

    Therefore, I present to you....VaultOberFest!!! During the month of October, VaultF4 will be holding a fundraiser, with prizes, to raise money for Vault! I know, we're ALWAYS trying to raise money to pay our bills yadda yadda...but this is extremely different. We have located an affordable server box, which would SIGNIFICANTLY reduce our bills because we will no longer have to pay to rent space on someone else's! This is a huge opportunity for us to become self-sufficient and give something back to YOU. If we, as a community, can raise significant funds, then November may well be the VERY LAST MONTH that VaultF4 has any server bills!!!

    I'm sure most of you remember the Raid The Vault giveaway we held when we first opened the Vault doors. While I would love to give away an expensive gaming device, or a high-value Steam Card, it's not something that VaultF4 can afford. Instead, we have a diverse collection of games and potentially high-value Team Fortress 2 items(Yes, we mean hats)!

    To briefly outline the structure of this fundraiser:

    Entries will begin accumulating on October 1st!!!! All donations prior to this date will be amazing generosity but will not earn you extra entries.

    Donators will earn 1 entry per dollar donated(e.g. $5 donation=5 entries). Donations can be made via the account upgrades panel. For custom amounts not included, just shoot one of us a PM and we'll give you the PayPal info. Update: We will now accept TF2 keys of any variety (summer cooler keys, robo keys, or just regular-old keys) as well as metal! The rates are 2 entries per key and 1 entry for 3ref to have your name entered into the donator pool. Other high-value items can be negotiated. Reechard really wants a Bill's. Contact Reechard, LavaRed, or Vintage to trade and have your entries put in.

    Yes, you can absolutely earn a chance to have your name entered without donating! For every 1 hour of play time on any VaultF4 Source server, you will get 1 entry into the drawing! Donators are also eligible for playtime entries and will be dual-entered into both pools.

    If you are only competing for entries via playtime on Source servers, you will need to post in this thread confirming that you are doing so. In addition, please make sure that your Steam account is linked to your Forum account so that we can accurately record your playtime. We don't want you to miss entry opportunities!! All Source server play time will be tracked via HLStats.

    Prizes will be split into 2 categories so as to make winning opportunities fair for all. Donators will have the chance to win prizes with a higher value. Winners will be able to choose from the list of prizes in their categories as their name is chosen.

    On November 1st, names will be picked randomly out of a hat by me via livestream at 10pm EST! Yes, I will quite literally be putting names on pieces of paper and putting them in a hat(probably my Teemo hat).

    The way I read it is you only post here if you only want entries from play time. If you donate you will automatically be entered. You better donate!

    This is correct. Posting here is only necessary to "activate" the playtime tracking for entry in the playtime prize pool. Donators will be automatically entered in the donation prize pool, which is a separate thing.
