Donations for Hardware and Connection upgrade
« on: July 05, 2011, 06:03:03 AM »
Dear all fellow roleplayers of the mists,

The current statues of our server hardware is still uncertain, but it has made it apparent that a more secure system would help ease the minds of all. Additionally, due to Axel no longer working at the university, we will have to relocate the server as well (to my location), which will probably demand an upgrade of my network connection, and certainly investment in some new wires and cables.

Due to this (and my currently poor economy) we are now asking the community to help raising funds for this. We won't need a great deal, but if enough donate just 5-10$, we'll be well off to getting the server back online and in better shape than before.

To donate, use either of these PayPal links:

PayPal Canadian Dollar | PayPal Danish Krone | PayPal Euro | PayPal Pound Sterling | PayPal Norwegian Krone | PayPal Swedish Krona | PayPal US-Dollars

Thank you in advance, and rest easy - we will soon have the server back online.

Sincerely,

~Søren

(On behalf of the entire server team)

(If some have experienced issues with wrong currencies showing up, this should now be fixed.)

Hey all,

The amount of contributions have been overwhelming. Even if we would prefer to offer all we do freely, it's moving to see the support for the server manifest itself so quickly into something real when the need arises.

Thank you all, you guys truly rock!

We already have what we needed and even some to run a better connection for a good while. We can consider those worries now over, and we'll do all we can to honour the trust you've shown us by this, and get the server up running quickly and in better shape than ever.
