I had a thank you mention in the code(I think?), a postcard and a T-Shirt from 
gnumediagoblin. I think that was equivalent to 3 different levels, each higher 
in price. I think for larger donations there was even limited edition 

I don't know if that answers the question.

gnuMediaGoblin is still going. But I don't think it will be finished as there 
is a lot of things being added to it.
