Please don't link the actual servers or mention them by name. I know everyone is dying to talk about it but please keep it limited.
Also about the "donations" thing, my 2cents:
Remember that that Trickster is owned by nTreev Soft/NCSoft and they exclusively own the rights to that, and you can only publish the game legally if you have a license to do so from them. No private server will have that, so they are effectively stealing money from nTreev, the guys that are making the game. Yes, eTO is gone and there is no official licensed publisher for the US/SEA/etc area, but that doesn't mean anything, they still own the sprites, images, music, etc.
Now, will nTreev do something about that? Probably not, not worth the time and money to deal with some little private server (just look at the RO scene). But some big private servers (RO, WoW
is what comes to mind) have been taken down before so it's completely in their right to do so.
