Support Newbiesplayground? Donations?

dear members and friends of the -(DOG)-clan!

you may have noticed that i added "paypal-donation-buttons" to our website and this forum recently. here's a short explanation:

as some of you may know, i regularly donated to Sparky's paypal-account myself, right back when i started to play on Newbiesplayground servers - among other donators - as Sparky was really struggling to pay the monthly fees for Newbies gameserver-slots and webhosting. around 2012 i reorganized (on behalf of Sparky) the whole gameserver-structure. we moved from renting a bunch of gameserver-slots to rent a dedicated server where we could host multiple gameservers ourselves and even could reduce costs simultaneously.
from that point i came up for Newbiesplayground related fees and when i took over clan-leadership from Sparky, i paid everything on my own for the past seven years and even removed Newbies' paypal-account. some members/friends asked me, if they could donate and i explained thankfully that i would come up for everything as long as i am able to, but of course i would inform all clan-members and the community here if the situation should change.

well, the situation changed now.

as probably some of you have been affected by the economic recession due to the pandemic, my business got affected as well and i lost several clients as their businesses broke down and/or they had to reduce their costs drastically as well.

we have not reached the point of a serious crisis yet and i still can come up for the server-costs myself but i can't predict how the situation will develop. so, i decided to inform all of you about the current situation and re-initiate the opportunity to support Newbiesplayground not only by your time and efforts but also to participate to cover the costs for Newbies' "infrastructure". i am aware of the fact that probably most of you are short of money yourself and really i don't expect nor demand from anybody to be able to support Newbiesplayground on a financial basis!

yet any donation would be welcome and highly appreciated!

thank you! WOOF!
strategy.


p.s. in case there should be any donations, i'd intend to list all donations (except the donator would not want to be mentioned) on the forum.
