Late last year I received three emails from TVRage authored by I believe a staff member called Roger. Based on the content of the email I think anyone signed up to receive TVRage API access received the same email.

In the content of this email it was soliciting donations and it included this incentive for those who did:

As an added incentive, those of you who donate $10, $25, $50, or $100 will receive priority bandwidth with the new version of our API.

I am curious about two things. First of all how will you know that I donated (Which I have, twice, both times within the required amounts to receive priority bandwidth as offered) as my Paypal email is different to the one I used when I signed up to the TVRage service.

Secondly when will the priority bandwidth feature be active? It says in the email that a new version of the API is forthcoming but that was back on the 27th of November 2012 and I don't know if the new API is just a backend up date thus already rolled out and I'm not aware of it or is a complete overhaul with a new query format and response?

I still have my Paypal transaction ID for my most recent donation if needed to verify that I did indeed donate.

Thank for looking over this.

I will make sure Roger is aware of you posting this thread as I am unaware of how to respond to your query .

allow me to answer that.
the donation came short 9000$ to buy the server we intended, we only bought it last month.
it will be put online soon, and the new API center which will be launched combined with the new version could still be 6 months away
as to how will we know who donated, we will have a form where people can fill in the transaction id and will be automatically checked against the database
