    I need to make new badges (green circles) for my kits, all the badges were intentionally
    popped off before they were sent to recycling.

    I don't think I can find domed plastics, just round.

    Then I have to make a backer for it somehow.

    Any ideas?

    I would leave them as is, when you get into restoring things, it can end badly.

    I would guess it would be like the controller S jewel, a flat image applied to domed plastic?.

    For custom stuff like this, I usually trawl around etsy and try to find somebody who makes something similar.
    The sellers are usually pretty open to doing custom jobs.

    Wouldn't it be better to sell one to make sure the site doesn't go down?

    Ps, please respond to the users.

    There are people who print domed PC badges, no problem. Just google it. We used to get them made up all the time for our PCs.

    I've got a Nomad 883 Pro CNC router on the way, it should be here by Wednesday - I can experiment with milling transparent plastics if you'd like, then you'll just have to figure out the backing.

    I've kept out of this whole thing for the most part, but I feel like this has to be responded to...

    Didnt you raise thousands around the same time as posting that?
    Don't you reach every fund raiser and then it stays up past the goal and you gets more?

    I think the insult is, people do donate - some of which are very generous. To then post that is coming across as very ungrateful to those and like you are being dishonest?

    You could reduce costs easily. That is your responsibility, yet people still make your donation targets every time anyway.

    You burned that bridge when you didn't listen to your staff and users. You blame staff/users but the one that kept it down was you not Retro, not Borman, not any of the former staff.

    You chose to keep two servers costing around $300 a month. Was you forced too? couldn't you download the data and have kept the current server?

    I couldn't word this better myself.

    You're absolutely right. Let's go ask the other staff members to help out.

    Oh, sorry. For a second I forgot that you are the sole owner and now the only staff member of the site. That usually implies that you're the one paying for it.

    It's flippant responses like yours that are causing the community to leave, not the mods or certain forum members. But I'm sure that you'll find someway to play the victim card in this situation.

    Also, I'm just going to leave this here:

    Can we go one thread with Kevin's presence without derailing it for this shit?
    @N!NJA for real man, I've told you to tone it back for a while. All the mods left, most of the users unhappy with things have left and gone to yours, and the ones that are staying are trying to adapt. You don't need to keep kicking him every chance you get.

    "told him"?

    Seeing as you arent staff, I think you mean asked him.

    Though I do agree with you for the most part.

    You're such an asshole, I wouldn't use your site even if AG went offline.
    Why don't you start an anti-AG circlejerk thread over on your egalitarian utopia forum and stop wasting our time here? This site isn't perfect, but your actions are doing nothing to make it better.

    Come on guys, stay on topic. Spreading this stuff everywhere across the forum clearly isn't helping, you've pretty much said it all already in multiple threads.
    You're in luck, once I've got it setup and running well, I'll probably run some kind of small-scale service for CNC stuff. :p

    A month ago in discord PMs.

    Be sure you can do weird requests first because I will certainly make use of it.

    Hey, as long as you pay I can make you aluminium dildos with "DildoButts" engraved on the side.
