Dear muCosmos community, It has come to my attention that only a few people have ever donated. This is of course your own decision, but think about this: If you donate (monthly), the Director can hire a better server, which leads to better pings, which leads to no lag, which means less costs in the end because we need to hire less other servers. One awesome dedicated (non-virtual) server is enough to host all Synergy servers and the Minecraft server without lag. Currently, people from the United States experience high pings when they're on our virtual Syn server in Germany. At muCosmos, we have standards, even though we are not aware of them because we're usually under the influence of sweet sweet ethanol. We love low pings, and having jolly fun with our players on our servers. The Director, Refalm, can hire an awesome server for 50 euro's a month. As you'll understand, paying 50 euro's a month as a student is a bitch. I am making a list of people who are willing to donate every month, so that we can get better servers and a better quality of service. If you are not considering donating, consider this: It's easy to say no, but the more people donating means donating becomes cheaper. If you are willing to donate, reply to this topic. On Friday (27-04) I will calculate how much each one will have to donate. Remember, donating happens voluntarily, but donating ensures the stability of the community. Potential donors: - GC - Jens14 - Markvkalsbeek - J0ttem - JJ1forces - Mastermind_EJ One time donation from Brantweerman: € 20,- (Good for 5 months!) Monthly goal: € 30,- Sign-ups: 6 Number of sign-ups needed (at least): 5 (which means € 6,- each) The more the better! More people = cheaper donations. ~~~ Useful Information ~~~ All donations are done by PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account, make one. PayPal will come in handy when making donations, buying things on the internet, and buying games on Steam. € 4 Donation link Donations will be made 24th of every month.
