Default Eqemu Developer appreciation pledge

So I would like to give something back to the eqemu developer community who has helped many projects so much over the years and never asked for a dime. In order to pull that off I have launched a gofundme campaign to raise funds to be able to give them a nice donation. All pledges made to this campaign will be awarded with credits on my server (raid addicts) just like if you were donating to the server. Except all of these proceeds go directly to the eqemu developers.

If other server ops would like to pitch in and support this that would be great , you can do so by a pledge or offering up donation perks for those who pledge on your servers. Just PM me and we can work out the details with that.

We may not reach the $3000 goal for this, but there has been 6 donations so far and every little bit helps , with Gofundme, you don't have to reach the goal in order for the owners of eqemu to withdraw the funds out at any point. I have authorized them to do this and sent them withdraw rights invitation etc.

Anyway anything you guys can give is greatly appreciated , after all this community wouldn't be nearly as popular without these people working on it, obviously it's a labor of love for them however I want to give more.

I'll be kicking a few bucks in when I get paid at the end of month. This is a good idea.
I will get this quest posted on my server website

After edit: I put a link to this thread on both website and forums (mine)

Hey folks, so the support thus far has been fantastic we have raised almost $500 for the developers, I have given only ONE person full access on the developer team to withdraw these funds currently.

Hopefully this will start to be utilized soon with a "Bounty System" to accomplish huge tedious tasks which will greatly benefit all servers in eqemu.

We ask that people keep sending in what they can until the final goal of $3000 is met in order for the eqemu developers to begin that process.

The double bonus is still active until this has been completed on Raid Addicts and again I ask that other server ops pitch in as well to allow for the players on their servers to contribute for perks. (Not sure how other servers handle donations so maybe this is asking a lot, if so apologies)

Just an update:

We have raised $500 , and at this point the eqemu developers have decided to allocate that first $500 to the new EQEMu Wiki project which is being worked on currently. They have spoke to me about this and it seemed like a great project to designate the funds toward since it will be helping to bring in new people to the community.

Raised $640 , sent $500 too the Devs to be used as they see fit.. Gofundme takes about 10% which was annoying but I went ahead and put in some of my own money to ensure they get every penny.. I am asking for permission to create some EQEMU T-Shirts from the developers utilizing the banner on top of the forums for the back and the Eqemu logo for the front of the shirt.

This will be sent to people who pledge over $100 to this cause which we have a few so far.

Gofundme for the EQEMU developers has raised $810 so far, which I have sent to the Eqemu Developer lead Akkadius .. Most of these pledges have been given by players on my server Raid Addicts, but really hoping that others in the community send in pledges to support what the Eqemu Devs are making possible for us here. Any amount is greatly appreciated folks, hope everyone has a great weekend!
