RE: Server Donation / Donators

2007/12/14: Revamped the donation posts a little ^_^

New: For every 30$ now receive a Hat Voucher (exchangeable at the Hatter for a random special hat). This is however NOT retro-active, meaning past donations will not receive this sadly.

New: Made a few tweaks to the 100 multiple bonus. Mainly at 400 receive a customized egg of a non-MVP monster of your choice. Also 500+ multiple receive Jewel Cases.

RE: Server Donation / Donators

2008/09/01 Updated the first post with the announced changes.

Also, I paid a 1 month "gold membership" on top100, which gives us a banner, hopefully it brings in new members ^_^

RE: Server Donation / Donators

I'm purchasing a new computer for the server, better of course ^_^ I made a deposit a few days ago, since it's a custom order it'll take about 2 weeks to be ready. More information later.

RE: Server Donation / Donators

I finally got the new computer for the server, I made the deposit over 5 weeks ago D:

It's a rackmount (2U) instead of being a tower computer, that's why it took so long, the casing had to be ordered and apparently the supplier is abysmally slow.

The server is not currently running on it mind you, it's still on the old computer for now. I'll have to set up a time for a maintenance for the transfer and the next few days are not looking like I'll have time to do that. I'll set up a test server first, and once everything is stable and working I'll put the real server on it.

For those who are wondering about the techy mumbo jumbo, here it is:

Intel Duo-Core 2 E8400 3 Ghz FSB 1333 Mhz 6 MB cache
Asus Motherboard
4 GB of memory DDRII PC 6400 (2x2Gig)
320 GB hard drive

It has 3 fans and it makes an awful lot of noise, I'm glad this baby is not staying home for long, I'll get it to a hosting facility soon enough.

RE: Server Donation / Donators

2009/05/18 Updated donator list + spent list. And a few small changes to the rewards:

Change to existing rewards:

Before: For every 20$ donated, receive 1 Hat Voucher
After: For every 10$ donated, receive 1 Hat Voucher

New addition:

Added Enriched Oridecon and/or Enriched Elunium to the multiple of 100 bonus.

Added the rewards for multiple higher than 1000 since a generous donator broke that record last month, he will be getting his NPC named after him in a new upcoming quest that will be released soon.

The changes are not retro-active, meaning they do not apply to past donation.

RE: Server Donation / Donators

I got us a side banner on the top200 a few weeks ago to attract more players:

I also started using Google Ads, we're recruiting big time!

Be sure to invite your friends and vote in the tops. For those who can afford it donations are always welcome as well, but for those who can't don't worry, just remember there are other ways to help the server which are useful too! ^_^

The $25.00 Value Pack it includes the following:

- 20 Old Blue Box
- 10 Old Purple Box
- 10 food that gives +1 all stat for 10 minutes
- 10 Allegiance Points
- 3 Old Card Album
- 2 Hatter Voucher
- 1 Help heRO Hat of the month

If making a donation for this package please simply let me know when I come deliver the rewards in game. It is basically $20.00 worth of rewards and the Help heRO Hat of the month, to find out which hat is available visit this link:
http://pandoraonline.net/forum/showthread.php?tid=14727

Please note that to determine which "Help heRO Hat" of the month is given the receipt date of the donation will be used, not the date of the trade with the donator.

Have also been added: Donation rewards multiple of $100 past the $1000 mark and clearer steps on how to donate.
