it worked for me yesterday but I tried to do it a few hours ago (I wanted to buy it for EJR out of pity) but I was getting bad gateway errors. same browser, same card, seems not to be dependant on that :(

Can't accept that, but I really really really appreciate it :-(

I'd feel better about just buying it myself. It's the least I can do. Thanks though.

I think it is a much better idea to have the star design to be red instead of having a supporter icon.

I don't think they meant to give everyone a red star.

Just made my 6th attempt at purchasing the supporter upgrade to no avail. Either the whole store or that particular item appears to be broken. Anyone else still having similar bad luck?

Yeah seeing the star side-by-side is clear now. Well not entirely, the red star is very faint, makes me wonder what the point is in the first place with changing its color.

Same, when I hit the order button on the confirm page it gives a server error.
Could be unrelated but my icon also doesn't show up in the top left on that same page.

You can go to the store and buy prepaid visa cards. I suggest that because I know for a fact they have a 25 dollar option in those cards.

3 questions
are they sold intentionally
do you need id
are there age limits

When i start making my own moeny this will be one of the first things I buy! I don't care about the lack of adverts, I don't care about the supporter icon! I want to help keep newgrounds alive! If I'm bound to be here forever by oath I will do all I can to make sure I can.

So if NG was less mainstream, all the animators would forgo YouTube money and post their stuff here first? And all the game developers would turn down the highest bidders and post their games on a site covered in porn ads and screamer spam, because it's punk as fuck?

Times change, the internet changes, peoples' expectations change. And regardless, NG never went mainstream.
