Call for funding support - Help keep the server running
« on: October 18, 2015, 08:46:11 AM »
Dear all fellow mist-dwellers,

The server migration is now well over with and everything is running smoothly. However as noted earlier, this has entailed an increase in the running costs for the server, seeming to level at around 70$ each month, and so we now depend on the community's help in raising the funds needed to keep the server running for a good while still (we are already about 2½ months behind, roughly 170$)

Therefore, if you feel you have some money to spare and consider us a worthwhile investment, please use the links below to donate. 70$/month can be a lot for a single person, but for a large and vibrant community as ours, it takes no more than just a tiny amount from each community member before we have raised the funding needed for guaranteeing several more months of braving the Mists.

To donate, use either of these PayPal links (you can pay with credit card through these too):

Australian Dollar | Canadian Dollar | Danish Krone | Euro | Pound Sterling | Norwegian Krone | Swedish Krona | US Dollar

As usual, all funding will without exception be spend on covering server running costs. We are hoping to get enough to cover the current 170$ we are behind as well as the costs of at least a few months ahead, but I will keep you updated on how the funding goes in this topic.

If we manage to get the amount needed, I promise that you will also see a good deal of exciting new content arriving in the mists in the coming time (among other things, a large hak update).

Thank you in advance!

Sincerely,

~Søren

(On behalf of the entire server team)

By all that is holy...! 

A great big thank you to those of you who've donated so far - it's deeply appreciated and honestly a bit overwhelming. We've already passed our initial aim, collecting more than 600$ in less than 8 hours.

Thanks to you, we are now guaranteed (provided Google doesn't collapse) to be able to keep this server running for at least six more months.

Seeing as the most immediate need is now covered, I'll also remove the link to here from our "Latest News" box, but you are still very welcome to chip in if you'd like. It all goes to making this old place running for that much longer.

Long live our community! <3
