Around a week ago or so I donated 10 pounds to GPUGRID. Now I realize that's not much, but it's what I could afford. My question is - will I get that crown next to my name, and if so, how long does it usually take?

it could take a long time since everybody is on holiday. Donations are manually processed. Mine took months after sending a message about the problem but it came through eventually. Hopefully somebody will see your post sooner than that!

As werdwerdus said, donations are handled manually, since right now there is no better way. I am going through the ones we have received over the past month or so right now. We have received your donation and you now have a crown next to your name. We appreciate the donation very much.

So that other crunchers know, we will try to update donations/crowns monthly from now on, so if you do not see a crown show up after a month or so, feel free to send an email/PM.

I have just sent 500 euros their way. Given the situation in Spain (and around the euro zone) I am sure the project need whatever help we can send their way.
