Default New Policy: Donations

First off, thanks to everyone that has donated so far to keep our servers alive. There will be some changes to how donations are handled but I wanted to show you exactly where your money has gone to date.

Total Expenses includes server fees and software licenses.
Net donations is donations less PayPal fees.

As of November 1, 2008:
Total Expenses: ($1,960.26)
Net Donations: $944.89
Total: ($1,015.37)

A more detailed accounting can be found here:

Starting November, there will be no more monthly donation drives. We have some projects in the works to try and raise site revenue and we have more expenses now than just maintaining the server. Some of our newer projects are going to require money being spent to marketing, advertising, etc.

Donations will not be stopped as we will always appreciate those that want to help us out. Anyone that donates from this point forward will still receive recognition and enjoy an ad-free MMOG. But donation funds will not be restricted to simply server fees and licenses anymore; they will be used for server fees, licenses, marketing, operating costs, MMOGCon expenses, anything that helps keep this site and its projects alive. True to our word, we've used donations only for server-releated costs thus far - and that's why I'm telling you right now exactly where future donations will go.

The donations/expense report will also no longer be updated; it's final date of accuracy is November 1, 2008.

Thanks to everyone for supporting MMOG.
