Paul pays several hundred dollars a month for this server to run. He overspends because he demands high speeds like a company server would. It would have helped if he didn't do that, but I have no desire to buy the server.
If anything, I'd just buy the forum data to preserve the posts and thread histories for reference. Then if anyone wanted to put funds upfront for the server, I could have the forum data on hand for them. However we won't ever garner the same audience we ever had. Not without someone spending full time effort on this.
Also, nostalgia never makes things ultimately better. If MyLunia was reborn today, it would hardly live up to the bubbly reputation you gave it in the past. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed my time on MyLunia; MyMMOgames was ultimately the better managed, and well developed server. This is especially true if you knew the nightmare of what staff went through on MyLunia... which we're ironically facing right now with Paul/Metal.
