I will pay half of expenses for servers, gimme paypal

Hello,

to introduce myself a little: I know about Spring RTS since around 2008. I have played the most at around 2012 with one of my friends and we sometimes went for online competitive play (we were not of much competition though). We are planning on returning to Spring (BA for the most part), in fact I have already compiled the game and started some bot battles (I have never been any good at competitive online play anyway).

Now came the time when I want to repay community for delivering this game (I mean Spring, not the BA) for all that time I know about it. Because I do not know the community members that much, I cannot pay individual people based on their work. However there is one aspect that connects the work of all people involved - that is server cost. Without server(s) there will be no Spring RTS.

I see there is 60€/year cost (I know it is much higher, but Spring part was stated at 60/y). I will pay at least 30€ for this year expenses if you can point me to the guy who runs the server (I believe I want to talk to Kloop?). The problem is I do not have bitcoin and I prefer not to get into it - Paypal (or even standard bank transfer) is the way for me. We can talk out all the details later, now I only wanted to know if there is any chance for me to repay all the time I have and yet will spent using Spring engine to play games - without using bitcoin.

I would like to thank to everyone who was involved in making Spring RTS and all the work connected with it. You made engine and games that surpasses many commercial games out there. The only wish I have is for bigger community of devoted fans/players.

Thank you all!

I didn't wait for dansan to reply on to how I can/will divide payments, so I paid 15€ for January - March period of this year (I know this is more mental thing than reality). Will be back in June with the same amount and then in September and December.

Thanks you guys for all your work!

That was fast :)
I just received 15€ and with the rest in the other years quarters this year of server hosting goes to completely to Pavouk106.
Can someone with wiki write permissions note this in Donations (and lower the entry from 2018.03.13 by 4 lines :)?
Thanks!!

You are welcome! All of you, in fact!

This is my way of contributing to the project. Maybe a cheap one (heh :lol: ) but the only one I could think of.

Sorry guys, the time flies so fast that I forgot to send money in september. I have done so just right now. Expect me again around Christmas with my last donation (well, last for this year... I may as well continue with this sometimes in the future).

Thank you for making Spring RTS and all the services connected with it!
