The server will have to be paid again soon, so more donations are appreciated!

The website and server both need payment at the end of this month, so some additional donations of a total worth of around 20 would be helpful!

I calculated the donations I received and the expenses I spend for servers and website since we started using them:
(I used todays value of the dollar in euros to calculate the donations I received in $, so the numbers are vague)

Donations received: ~343
Expenses spend: ~404

Of those 404 around 200 have been paid be three individuals, while another eight persons donated around 20,00 each (=~160). Another 9 individuals donated between 4 and 15.

If this is continued, we will be able to maintain the servers and website, however it would be good if more members could donate even minor sums. If 40 members donate 15 per three or four months, then we would have around 480 without anyone having to donate sums as large as 50-90.

And a big thanks to all those who donated, especially the odd donation from people who are not even in the clan!

I didn't quite figure out how the donation works, since it doesn't look like the usual PayPal purchasing screen. I will try to figure it out, when I have the time!

Oh, and what confused me also that the currency was US dollars, not euros? What's up with that.

Thank you!
I was succesful now. Although it's weird how the currency is in US dollars for me. I just have to do a bit of thinking to get the right amount in euros.
