Me too I have also donated (Total: $40.00 USD Purpose: Donation to IceFilms.info) and have contributed in helping people out in the forum with technical issues. How long does it take to be recognized as a contributor? I made the donation on Oct.02/11 which I guess really isn't that long ago, but the stash has me wondering what it holds. Its kinda like just sitting in front of a clock doing nothing waiting for 5 minutes to pass. (waiting) (think) (yn)

I'm sure they will get to it, still think they are working on the site. The stash is good for alot of random things.

ok im trying to get access to be able to post movies,sports and shows in the mainsite
things i have done in day one
2. Fill requests in the requests forum.
i filled 1 i think
3. Spread the word / Advertise for Icefilms. (without spamming)
already have and i plan on doing it on myspace and facebook next week hopefuly
4. Add links to the links section of the forum. Once you've added some links to the forum, and it is clear you understand our rules and quality standards, and you intend to add more links, then you can ask for permission to add links directly to the mainsite.
done that aswell how can i get acess to the mainsite

What do you mean access to the main? Viewing is free. Posting directly to the main site takes awhile.

Links on IceFilms come from a lot of different sources, and not always the same every time. Some are ripped and uploaded, some are just sourced links from other sites. The request area is the best place to ask for something - Ice members are really good at hunting stuff down.

umm why does it matter if you download it or not. Streaming through ICE is the same thing as downloading. its just deletes it self once it is done. But as I said if you want them, post a request and we will put it in an format compatible with ice.

because downloading takes 20 min.-1 hour for just half the ppv or sometimes a movie then another 10 min. to ftp it to my xbox with the ice plugins for xbmc4xbox i am able to stream those links with just waiting 25 sec.
i know it auto deletes and its the same thing as downloading
could i post a request with the links but ask for them to be put in the mainsite
and if i do that how long would it take to appear there

Part of becoming a contributor to the main site is patience.
First of all donate so you have access to the stash.
If you've made a donation and your name hasn't turned golden,
I'd suggest that you PM a moderator.
Second, demonstrate that you can follow instructions by posting
good content according to the forum rules. Follow Rasa's Avatar example
closely.
Third, work with the moderators on questions you have regarding
posting and get some help from others to independently verify that your
work meets Mainsite Criteria. Become known as a team player.
Get to know someone with mainsite privileges who can put your links
on the main site for you -if the content you share in the forums meets the
mainsite criteria.

Although you may wish to receive immediate credit for the content you
share, keep in mind that Icefilms works because it's an uncoordinated loosely
based team of individuals working with a single goal: to share content.
The worker bees working inside the hive who are sharing content in the forums
are just as important as the worker bees that go outside of the hive to put
links on the main site.
Some of us may be motivated by post count, others fame, but most I believe
are motivated by the knowledge that their efforts are making life a little less
dreary for someone they don't even know. If this is true only in one case then
it is worth the effort.
I see Icefilms as a way to provide entertainment to those who cannot afford
to pay a cable bill or to rent videos.
Join me in posting your collections to the stash.
We must always be patient in the Icefilms world.

Working, yet not taking credit.
Work is done,
then forgotten.
Therefore it lasts forever.

Some feedback after having some experience with how the contributor system currently runs..

I would suggest that if one of the methods of obtaining the coveted status of "Contributor" with the shiny yellow glow is donating more than a few dollars, that the people in charge of watching the Paypal account are a bit more.. shall we say... timely. Donations are being submitted but not acknowledged, on the order of weeks or more.

If however that is a misconception and it also requires helping out on the forums, submitting links to content, etc.. then that should probably be clarified in the main post of this topic. It isn't obvious which is the case at the moment - does donating money get you group membership, or is it simply one step in a larger process, in which patience plays a primary role?

Take with a grain of salt, just my observations and suggestion(s) on how to improve an otherwise great community.

You don't have to donate money. That is purely voluntary. Contributors are the ones who keep Ice going. I see what you mean as far as the contributing money or contributing Links. There is a certain trust factor that I am sure you understand. The Coveted Yellow is Earned not Bought.
The more you help the faster we vote you in.
