This POTM is the last POTM for 2017 including the pics from 10/2017 to 12/2017 because of a problem with the old POTM. I have just changed the topic title from "Picture of the Month January 2018" to "Picture of the month 10/2017 to 12/2017" and from january on again each month will have his POTM.

Help KEEP Swifty's ad-free!

Posted by jedimario (Admin) at Dec 9 2017, 02:18 PM. 46 comments

Hi everyone,

For years we have had advertisements here at Swifty's Garage. At times, these advertisements have gotten fairly intrusive, and they have always been annoying. Swifty's Garage staff has been looking into ways to remove them, and we think we have a solution. Introducing the Swifty's Garage Patreon!

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that allows organizations to raise funds for various projects. You can read more about it here. Basically, you can use it to sign up for a monthly donation to your chosen group. We've determined that this will be one of the easier ways to raise the money we need to completely remove ads from Swifty's for everyone, logged-in members and guests alike.

To reach this goal, we need about $40/month. This isn't a huge amount for a board this size to raise, and even a single dollar a month will go a long way to getting rid of ads, so every bit helps! We hope you'll consider helping out. Short of that goal, we'll remove ads as long as we can, but they may not be absent all of the time.

Patreon will also allow us to provide exclusive benefits to supporters. While we don't have anything specific figured out yet, you can be sure that will be something in the near future! Please take a look and consider contributing. You can view the Patreon page here:

Thanks!

If the above link doesn't work, the direct link is:

You can vote once per day per computer. Let's get Matchbox into the HOF where it deserves to be. Right now PEZ is destroying the competition with 35% of the vote (Whiffle Ball is second at 26%, My Little Pony a distant third at 14% and Matchbox is way back in fourth with a mere 7% (nothing else is even close, surprisingly not even Transformers). And Pez isn't even a toy! Let's spread the word far & wide and reverse Matchbox's fortunes.
