    Default Support the Turbine-Powered Moustaches this Movember!

    We're raising awareness about men's health issues, and raising money for some good causes! The Turbine-Powered Moustaches are supporting this month-long effort, and we would love your help!

    What is Movember? From the official Movember page FAQ:

    Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health. Men grow and women support a Mo (moustache) for 30 days becoming walking, talking billboards. Movember supports world-class men’s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer.

    Men who support Movember, called Mo Bros, start by registering at Movember.com. Mo Bros start Movember 1st clean-shaven, then grow and groom their Mo, for the rest of the month, raising money along the way. Women who support Movember, called MO SISTAS, also start by registering at Movember.com. MO SISTAS champion the Mo by registering and supporting the Mo Bros in their life, spreading the important message of men’s health, leading a team and organizing events.
    If you are interested in helping to support this effort, please consider donating as little or as much as you are willing to; even a couple of bucks can make a big difference! You can click here to donate to the Turbine-Powered Moustaches as a team, or click here to support me (the money I raise goes into the pool for the team.)

    You can find out more about Movember's financials, and specifics about where the money goes, here.

    UPDATE 11/4/13: Now - with encouragements to donate!

    NOTES: Prizes are cumulative, so an individual who donates $100 would receive the custom forum title, the ability to kill Cordovan in a preferred PvP pit, and a Custom Forum Avatar.

    *Forum Titles and Avatars must follow the Community Guidelines, and be appropriate. The definition of "Appropriate" will be determined by the DDO Community Team. The title and avatar must also meet the requirements for the web site, so long titles may not be possible. For avatars, the donor can either send Cordovan the image to be used, or the Community Team can attempt to locate the desired image. All avatar creation and title work will be done in off-work hours, so please be patient.

    **Cordovan will do his best to award the prize, so please make sure that you are able to be contacted if you wish to receive a prize. If you prefer to donate to the Turbine-Powered Moustaches team as a whole, please send Cordovan a forum PM to let him know that you donated to the team and would be interested in being entered for the drawings.

    ***Group incentives will be based on milestones taken from Cordovan's individual Movember page, along with donations made to the Turbine-Powered Moustaches page that are meant to be part of the "DDO pool". If you donate to the group, rather than Cordovan individually, please PM Cordovan through the forums here to make your donation count toward the group incentives (and to help him award you the individual incentives.)

    You had cosmetic ribbons to raise awareness, is there any plan to add cosmetic moustances to DDO?

    I ask this in particular because my Warforged Sorcerer would dearly love to have a Tom Selleck moustache. As a player, I don't particularly want him to have it, but he has told me repeatedly that he does want a moustache and who am I to deny him that simple pleasure?

    Be careful, you step upon a slippery slope! The moustache is a test, next he's gonna want piercings, tattoos, pale purple wigs with My Little Ponies prancing in it, and those awful half jean half sweatpants things.

    I remember the previous chararity drive. DDO had a team and LOTRO had a team.

    With rewards for those that donated depending on how much, and for their game in general if certain amounts were raised.

    Do we have that happening again? I know that took T a lot of time to go through and do.

    You say that like it's a bad thing.

    I'd love a purple wig party spanking Harry.

    Sorry, but after a few hours of playing DDO right now, I don't have any hair left as I pull it all out in frustration due to bugs, bugs, lag and bugs.
    If your "Known Issues" list needs a freaking scroll bar, then one of you needs to go.

    Thank you for raising awareness about my dangerously high blood pressure. I hope you raise enough money to cure it... by fixing any bug thats not directly related to your bottom line. Not to mention by developing quests and loot that's actually worth paying for. Oh my bad, apparently i mentioned it. My bad.

    You HAVE seen the offerings of more than half of these people. You can't possibly be surprised. I was more flabbergasted that it took so long before the snide comments started.

    Not surprised, just disgusted. I mean, yeah, the game has bugs, who cares, there are a million posts talking about that. Guy is doing a fundraiser for a good cause, and of course, someone has to be a d-b.

    I personally cannot fix all of DDO's bugs, but I hear that a Snowy Owlbear Creature Companion's cuteness can lower blood pressure. Also, I'm willing to be your virtual punching bag in a PvP pit, so that might reduce stress.

    But, I managed to kill you on at least two occasions, already. Mind you, you were following the barbarian and I in no way directly killed you...
