I am part of those who donated $1 dollar -_- , I am sorry I couldn't donate more. I am a college student and can't afford much, my Sprint bill is already killing me, I know 5+ bucks won't kill anyone but that is my metro card money! I don't need to be upgraded to sponsor as I did it for kindness. Love the site and I hope the best.


^^^^^^^ Hey Robert, What would you think of adding a gift donation option? (sponsorship?) one of us senior(let me turn on my hearing aid) members could give the gift of sponsorship, because that would be awesome. #PayItForward

I have received gift donations via PayPal in the past for others. I had one person even pay for someone to upgrade to the Premier level. All you need to do is write in the Comments section of the PayPal donation that you are Sponsoring someone else and their screen name.

Robert, if this is done, would you be willing to keep the name of the Sponsor anonymous? Some folks like to do good deeds without making it public knowledge.

Absolutely. I always keep them anonymous, unless asked. Which no one has.

If you wish to sponsor another member, we greatly appreciate your generosity, and you can do so anonymously. The only way that anyone will know is that your avatar will temporarily change to an image of Sally Struthers (the South Park version).

Hey Robert. Do we have an current estimate of the number of members now part of the community?

Just a thought after reading through this thread, but I know I've seen on other voluntary donation-run sites where there is a visible bar/meter which shows progress towards each monthly expense goal and shows filled when met. I think if you could somehow incorporate something along those lines such that it displays on top of every rendered page throughout the site for example, it would help serve as a reminder/encouragement for those of us who can to donate regularly to do so.

Granted, I can only speak for myself, but at least for my own part anyway seeing such a bar 'incomplete' would definitely serve as a reminder and motivator as opposed to being left to remember/think about doing so on my own. Between getting older (and the inherent memory slips that are progressively becoming more prominent sadly) and the ability to be distracted in general, I wouldn't trust myself on a regular basis even if the underlying intent otherwise is there.

Could someone please provide the specific differences between which maps are or are not available at the 2 sponsor levels? The basic sponsorship level just says "some interactive maps." I'd like to know which maps I still wouldn't be able to see unless I became a premier sponsor. (Unfortunately, I cannot donate $100!)

The premier sponsor maps provide additional information concerning the build out status of the particular tower. i.e. estimated upgrade times, backhaul install timeframes, deinstall dates, etc.

essentially it provides much more information than just the tower name and location

Thanks for the info. It sounds like the premier level is what I'd need for my purposes.

Also note that the expanded detail in the Premier Sponsor maps are for the First and Second Round of Network Vision only. S4GRU currently does not have detailed information on 3rd and 4th Round markets. We do have site maps of all Sprint sites (regardless of Round) in the standard Sponsor section.

Just sent over a small donation, nothing huge at all, if anything its a frown but I felt very little bit I can do for now to show some love for the knowledgeable information I read on here daily. :)
