Sorry for being MIA, I was up till 1:30 last night and didn't get to work till 9:30 this morning. Anyways, we have till tonight, I mean CST midnight. I could not reach the guy again. I was calling till 1:30am but couldn't get through PA's phone line.

I will be calling him again tonight. As long as someone can pay him by the end of the day Wednesday in Dhaka, he should be able to publish it for Friday. So do we have anyone that can do this for us?

But before all that, we need to collect the money, I can transfer my pledge to whoever collecting, but we just need to get started. Looks like we already have a total of $500 from Shubho, Dr. Z and me. Which should take care of the PA ad but if we had more from the people who showed interest earlier and if we know how much then I could've gone for DS as well. It would've been awesome to hit a English daily.

Any update on the paypal acct from BC admins?

Need to put the slogan at top, then image, then bc. I would suggest to put the BC logo right below banglacricket.com (may be with reduced opacity). We need to push the logo as an identifier.

Some red/green needs to be there, logo might serve as balancing act. I would suggest a much lighter tone of yellow; background is taking too much attention with darker tone. Another option is to shoot for full black with blended tiger, players and text.

I agree. But when do we start collecting the donation and how, any idea when the account will be set up or open? Do we know anyone who is willing to represent BC in Dhaka?

I am not sure if it depends on the type of the account one has but I thought it's available to everyone and not sure if it's only within US.
It might depend on the type of account, then. I have sent and received money using a credit card in the US and there were substantial transaction "loss" each time. But, not while sending from my checking account.

I'll use the safe option. Mail a check.

I'll donate, but don't want to publicize the amount here. Please post the details about how/where to send the money and I'll send it.

Here's the latest tally:

Betaar: $100
Zunaid: $200
Shubho: $200
Nasim: $50
Shane2k: $100 Can

That's a total of $650 (appr.)

Then we have the following members who showed interest but are not wiling to disclose their pledge amount in the public forum.

Riankhan
Kalpurush
Shuziburo

Can you guys PM me so I know how much we should be able to collect in total? May be we can then go for even bigger ad in PA or another one in DS as well.

I emailed this to Mr. Momit and waiting for him to confirm whether this poster will work for the price he quoted me, if he says ok then we are game.

We can also go for 6" heigh and 4.5" wide ad but that will be tk.57,600 which I think is doable since there are quite a few generous BC members willing to participate with their time and money.
So can someone also come up with 6"x4.5" size so we have that one ready as well? Thanks a lot guys.....you guys have been superb.

Shaad also showed interest in donating an amount. Kalpurush is also on board with pledged amount.

I know all of you die hard fans are willing to pay right now but I don't know if BC will be ready with an account before tonight. I am not sure what I can do at this point. I do have a paypal account but would rather not deal with the finances. So far we have a very significant amont available but no clear option of how we can collect it.

If I were in Dhaka or had anyone in Dhaka to go and meet with PA then I could just pay from my pocket for now but so far no BC fans in Dhaka stepped up to help us out, this part is rather depressing. Is it because the initiave was not taken by a BC admin?

That looks good Mr. Z. But any thoughts on how we would collect the donation and disburse to PA?

That is a conundrum and unfortunately we may not have a solution. Too many of us on BC are based abroad. We do not have as big a Bangladesh base as we would have liked. I am not sure we have any member who could front the fees while waiting for out collection to be wired to that person. Had we a little bit more time, we could have made a go of it. We can still try, but I have to be realistic here and perhaps we need to table the fund collection idea for now and perhaps we can use our collective might again for a worthy cause in the future.

I can speak to Mr. Momit of PA and see if there's any solution to this. I am not sure if they, PA, is capable of accepting credit card payment, if they are I might just make the payment and email this latest version for Friday publishing. Unfortunately I don't have anyone to ask back in Dhaka to do this for me; otherwise, I would. Will keep you guys posted.....chao.

Well if you pay then I can immediately PayPal you my pledge immediately + whatever fees PayPal will cut. If you PM me your email address, I can mail you the High Res version of the image. Do ask PA, what file type and resolution they will prefer. I can do almost any format.

Zunaid, this looks really good. I just have one comment. Now that I look at it, "We Still Believe" kinda looks orphaned! I wonder whether something like:
"We Still Believe...
Go TIGERS!!!"
will solve the problem.

I will be very surprised if PA cannot accept credit card payment, but I have been surprised in Dhaka many times. Once more would not surprise me!
