Nothing's changed on the forum end. I sometimes see that after Chrome has been running for a long time or there are some pages that are rather resource intensive. I usually restart the browser when that happens.
It says no fees apply. PayPal took a small bite out of a couple of the donations, though.
Yeah, depends how people pay. If people send you a regular payment (for "goods and services"), you'll lose something like 30 cents and 2.9% of each transaction. If they send it as a "friends and family" payment, there is no fee for the recipient (although PayPal will sometimes charge a fee to the sender).
RT, you can add the PayPal donations to the gofundme campaign so the total donated is properly reflected. When you're logged in, click on the "Donations" link at the top and then "Donations" again. When the page loads, you'll see a "Add Offline Donation" link in the upper-right. You can then put in the amount of each donation and the person who donated it (and it can optionally be displayed publicly as "Anonymous").
I didn't see this at IAAPA (the show is huge, and we were only there about half of one day), but they did bring one of the tables to the Free Play Florida show where it was setup in front of the AtariAge booth Saturday and Sunday. I had the opportunity to play it a bit, and watch many others play. It's a pretty cool idea and executed well, and it certainly attracts quite a bit of attention.
My main grief with it, though, is the paddles are too slow. The paddle does not move fast enough to get to the ball if it's far enough away from your paddle. This makes the game a bit frustrating if you're used to playing any paddle-based PONG games where the paddle works as a true analog controller and you can whip it around quickly.
If they can improve this aspect, I'd be much happier with it.
