You realize you're the third person to post this, was only funny the first time.

I think this whole project is a nice victory for open source development and the creative spirit among consumers. In the reign of the very closed iPhone and iPad, it's nice to see a bunch of creative, hardworking, dedicated every day people go toe to toe with and electronics giant and come out on top..

It was only funny the first time. The other two times it just made me depressed.

But hug THANK YOU to everyone who can and who does donate.

And thanks to SWGEmu team for making all this possible.

I will donate as well, once other people stop :), and I get enough money. Have not played that much, just lvl'ed up a toon and kind of stopped, miss the other gameplay features, and the feeling of progression(knowing your on a beta server doesnt help :))

Can Internet Explorer users please test the donate button and confirm that it works or does not work?

Like the other forum controls, (i.e. Edit), the donate button does not work for me.

Greetings SWGEmu community! We are pleased to announce that our new donation meter is now operational. In the past, the meter would not properly reflect the accurate amount of donations because it calculated all donations as US Dollars. As such, it appeared we were far surpassing our monthly donation goals which was not always the case. The new meter accurately depicts actual donations.


So where do these donations go?

Currently we have $722.90 USD in our SWGEmu expense account, of which we have paid $300.00 of our $500.00 monthly expenses. Any extra money left over after the bills are paid is then put towards upgrading our equipment, software and/or services to provide you all with the best experience possible.

Example: In the last 6 months we have upgraded to a 100Mbit dedicated connection and upgraded to a SSD hard drive on the TC:Nova server.
Upgrades like this are only possible because of having some money left over each month. So a huge Thank You!! to our community members that continue to support the project. We will continue to upgrade our services whenever possible if we have a surplus of funds.

And this is why I keep donating even after it reaches the 100% mark :)

The donate button works fine in IE. I've used it in both IE and Firefox.

I've tried it now in IE7 and IE8, on Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro. Neither works. I assume this is similar to the issues with the "Edit" button.

Can any other IE users please verify the button?

I agree with this

I wish there were more updates to the community about the status of Suncrusher / OR, though I know its not feasible and sometimes those updates could actually go toward fixing the issues instead of saying you're going to be fixing the issues, etc.

Though a monthly update would be nice about what's going down on the OR or what bugs/fixes have gone in. Something just to keep those in the dark able to see a tiny light from the end of the tunnel.

That is our goal however sometimes it doesn't work out that way due to any number of reasons. There will be an update soon, I promise (and no that is not a Soon(TM) ;).

^^^Agree with that.
We're way past 3 months since the last bi-weekly update.
I mean even the official FAQ says that Suncrusher is expected to be up in the first quarter of 2009.

I think a lot more people (at least ME) would be more comfortable donating more if we knew it was going for more than keeping the server alive one more month on a project that has been abandoned.

Actually is has been 5 weeks since our last update. The bi-weekly model is on hold and has been for some time.
