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,

We must always be patient in the Icefilms world.
Working, yet not taking credit.
Work is done,
Therefore it lasts forever.
