The Big "Thank You" Post!

I’ve been way too lax in posting this, so let me take the time right now to offer a note of profound thanks to everyone who has supported Ultima Aiera by shopping for all manner of things at Amazon.com.

Just for fun, here’s a list of things that people have bought over the last little while. Ultima Aiera supporters don’t just buy computer games! They also buy apparel & accessories:

    Lol, I don’t mind you “going commercial”, but I think this post may be going a bit too far.

    • WtF Dragon WtF Dragon says:

      Maybe.

      Mostly, I was amused that people had bought blouses, garden sprayers, and makeup, and wanted to share that with y’all. And say thanks, of course. It doesn’t seem polite to say “support the site” (because it does cost a fair bit to run) and then not say “thank you” from time to time.

      Yeah, it’s all normal stuff…but it’s about the last thing I expected to see when I put up the banners, most of which deal with electronics and games.

      Now…the GOG banner…I actually like the look of it (it’s probably the best graphic I’ve built in GIMP to date), but the placement…just no.

      Maybe beneath the article stubs?

  3. Infinitron says:

    Well, if you want people to notice it, you could stick it between the top 4 article stubs and the rest of them.

    • WtF Dragon WtF Dragon says:

      That might be doable…with some PHP trickery. I think I’ll have to break up the article display loop…but now I think about it, I think there’s a way to jump its iteration ahead.

      Experimentation is warranted.

      Update: And that proved to be simpler than expected. Huzzah!

  4. Infinitron says:

    Nice job. You might want to play with it a bit. Perhaps lowering it to be below the Top 6 would be more aesthetic. That puts it right next to the “Support Aiera” part of the sidebar. It’s your call, though…

    In the words of the late Royal Marshall, “Just damn.” Maybe I should publish a partial list of purchases from my customers. Or not. Get a grip, man. The gravy train is one thing, unabashed enthusiasm is another.

    I bought some ultimas on gog after registering on got following the banner here. Hope that worked and you get something for the site…

      Things have been going pretty well at GOG. I’m sure your contributions have shown up, although they don’t give me granularity to know for sure. All I see are how many games were sold in a week (and all I get there is a numeric total, not a detailed list of which games) and what that amounts to in terms of commission.

      But based on what I am seeing, I’m pretty sure you’re included in the numbers.

      Regardless, thank you!
