New Donations Page

Guys, in order to get all donations to show up during our live Twitch streams, I've made a change when you donate. When you click the SUBMIT button on our donation form, on our website, it will now take you to a Streamlabs page that you will need to fill out. You will fill in the dollar amount, then press the DONATE button which will then take you to paypal. It's an extra step but one that will add about 5 seconds to the time it takes you to donate.

If you want to know why, you can read below..

This change was necessitated by a change in the way we do overlay management on our Twitch streams, including displaying follower and donation information live in our Twitch stream. No longer is all of that stuff handled locally but is handled by another website that does not have the ability to read txt files (with donation and follower information) which used to be updated on a TKC remote computer.

Long story short, something change with our Twitch stream presentation and it broke getting donation information the way we were getting it.

This is something I'm doing for now but it is possible that I will find something I don't like with the new service and will want to switch back to how we were doing it. Obviously if that happens I will let you know.

As always, thanks for your donations! And you can always check out our Twitch stream by clicking the drop down menu under "Advanced search" at the top right of this forum.
