    Some people have them and I'm curious how does one go about getting one? They look smart.

    I hope it's not some super easy process that anyone can do making it a meaningless accomplishment...

    I apologize in advance for my ignorance, but what are thread banners?

    I think they may be called trophies. Do we get participation trophies??

    I want a 'second thread' banner. Or at least a 'participant' banner.

    I don't care much about banners. I just want to get this pre-flight checklist over with. It must be a DOOOOOSEY.

    The only banner that is important is the one indicating that you support PoA.

    There's another way to do it...Troy posted the instructions a while back but I can't find them right now.

    @TangoWhiskey ???

    Oops, I was misremembering again.

    It wasn't @TangoWhiskey who posted the instructions, it was @jason .

    And I finally found it:

    Jason, surely the $58 that the site shows as being raised is wrong? Hopefully anyway.

    That only counts donation through that link. Most gave through PayPal (that link was only for those that didn't have PayPal). We'll be opening it back up. Soon, I hope.
