Help us keeping the server running
« on: January 22, 2013, 07:28:38 PM »
Dear all fellow roleplayers of the mists,

A new year is upon us, which also signifies that we have now entered POTM's tenth year of existence - and much to our amazement, the server is still alive and thriving, perhaps even better than ever. A huge thank you to all of you that take part in making this happen.

My current errand with this post is less exciting however, namely being that we are once again looking for voluntary support financing the costs of running the server and website . In other words, we kindly ask that those of you who feel you have a some surplus coin to share, to chip in to help keeping things running. It does not have to be much - if a sufficient amount of people decide to donate 5-10$ each, we'll be covered.

For a total year, we need roughly 4-500$. I'll keep this topic update to reflect how the funding goes.

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,

Sincerely,

~S๘ren

(On behalf of the entire server team)

If any of you had issues with the links leading you to a non-english page, this should now be fixed.

We've got a little over a 100$ donated so far - a big thank you to those of who've donated, it really does help a lot. While we are not in this for profit (and will never use any donations for non-server-cost-related expenses), it undeniably still is motivating to feel your support in this way :)

I love you guys - two days have passed and we are already almost there! Only 50 or so more needed, but any beyond that will simply be used to pay for future expenses.

Now back to the roleplaying!

Thanks again to all of you who donated, it has been great help. We've met our goal and then some, so should be a year before we have to ask for anything like this again.

Cheers! :cheer:
