Supporting the site
« on: Sep 28, 2012, 10:57 PM »
We have decided to setup a donation option in the top right hand corner of the website. You can also go to this link: This will go towards, and help pay for, the server we host the website and mumble on. Any donations will be much appreciated but not required. No donation amount is too small!

Thank you for your contribution!

Where does the money go?
  • The money is only used for expenses directly related to running the website. In other words, it goes mostly to bandwidth. A small portion goes to processor time for the two physical servers (web/mumble and database) that LD50 runs on.

How much does the site actually cost to run?
  • In the past it has cost about $3/mo to run the site (including domain registration fees.) With the addition of mumble and the increase in associated bandwidth, it is currently costing about $5/mo.

Why does it say Tyranny somewhere on the PayPal page when I try to donate?
  • It's actually a nightmare to get a not for profit group that doesn't qualify for US non-profit status setup in PayPal. So we're reusing the old Tyranny account from our Everquest 2 days. Credit card statements will show PAYPAL*LD50 as the payee.

Why is the amount listed as a donation in the details page lower than what I actually donated?
  • PayPal charges a fee for every transaction received. The amount listed in the details in USD includes this deduction.
