There's a post in dw_biz about a possible future icon add-on feature and I've been following along and commenting (I have opinions on basically everything I read about ever, pretty much regardless of whether or not it affects my life in any way, so I love places like dw_biz where I can actually share those opinions in a useful and non-annoying way).
In the process of poking around the various FAQs and the DW shop to better inform my opinion on icon add-ons, I discover that someone (or several someones) has apparently gifted me some DW points, because I now have 350 of them and I know I haven't bought any. This is pretty cool, but I can't figure out who and I'm not sure whether or not that's intentional (because I can't find any associated "history" page to tell me when they were given and possibly tell me who, just that I have them now) so I decide to open a support request and see if there's such a "history page" and I just didn't find it.
I also go to eat dinner, because food is a good thing and I should really remember to eat instead of being on the computer all day.
When I come back from dinner, not only is there an answer to my support request (donated without an attached note, so they can't tell if it's meant to be anonymous or not and thus, understandably, won't tell me who gifted it, gift happened back in December) but I notice that I now have a paid account (since it lists account status by your name in the support area for troubleshooting reasons). Some additional person has just bought me two months of paid time (thank you, person)!
So, um, it's been a pretty neat day Dreamwidth-wise.
I've since dug through my email, which I pretty much completely didn't read in December between my head injury and the holidays, and discovered the original points were gifted by sandrylene. Thank you, and, um, this is why it took me so long to get around to thanking you.
Also, anyone else who's been wondering why I haven't been responding to your email, it's probably because I'm really terrible at email and never checked it for about a month. I'm sorry. It is almost certainly nothing personal.
