Yay!

Thanks guys! Total of 55$ and that only for today. You can still donate for next month, but the payment for this month is covered.

Thanks for all the donations in the last couple of days! I think the donations for this month broke the record of donated money per month (with $95 donated).

The donations really carry the bulk of the payment for the servers, so a great thanks to all those who donated:

Expenses: 500,00
Donations received: 467,00

The next payment ($40,75) will be due on the 27th of February.

It is however noticeable, that a few donors donate often and much, while others never donated. We had 19 donations from clan-members and two from non-members. Considering how many members we have, 19 donors is certainly not a bad number, but neither is it the number of donors we should have.

Of the 21 donors, 17 donated more then $10 each, sometimes even $50, $60 or $70 each. That means, the expenses are paid through donations of a few, who donated regularly, while others never donate.
I understand, if some of you cannot donate due to problems with bank accounts or Paypal, but if you are able to donate, even donating small amounts would mean that others do not have to donate as much.

Today i was actually thinking about sponsors and it slipped my mind, but now i remembered again. I know that warband isnt really a big gaming market, but seeing as we are now in the top ranks of EU clans, we should consider looking for some opportunities of sponsors. I dont know if the server provider will do anything, but i was thinking more of other companies that may eighter pay the server or offer us something else in exchange for advertising etc.

Just a thought to ponder on. Its always better to have that extra something. Not to mention the IG server gets lots of traffic

Ah sponsors, when I still regularly played soccer, teams of my club would have sponsors (local bakeries etc). These sponsors would usually pay for shirts, balls, soccerbags, etc etc and in the end didn't really have anything to do with what players would play in games or anything like that, which was good.

Thing is, like the local bakery would want their name on our shirts, a sponsor for warband would like want their name and/or logo on our banners... which would likely kinda suck. However if they'd only want their name in our server name (for example IG_Starbucks_Battlegrounds) or some advertisements on our website, I wouldn't mind it so much. Def not if they'd pick up the tab for our servers.

Some advertising on our website might work better than sponsoring.
