No, that option doesn't work like that, it requires an amount. But you can edit the link yourself to an amount you want then browse to it.

Replace the X's in "X%2eXX" with the amount you want to setup for recurring. IE, if you want to do 4.50 your would change it to "4%2e50" to come up with:

Ah...

It was time! :)
Here you have!

Is it possible to have a donation-o-meter in the website of lexiashard.com?


Edit:
BTW i can approve: The guy who is holding the paypal-account IS CEO from this board.
So you are giving your money to a really trustworthy person.

Can we have numbers?
I mean:

How much money is needed for immediate upgrades?
Planed upgrades in the future?
How much does the ISP cost each month?

A list of the donations whould rock!
Not a list who donated how much!
But something like:

  1. Recurring donations: XYZ $
  2. Onetime donations: ZYX $
  3. Current donation-reserve: XXYYZZ $
  4.  
  5. Stuff paid from the donations:
  6. - RAM-upgrade: 50$
  7. - ISP: 100$ / month
  8. - HD: 100$
  9. ...
  10. ...

That would be cool! I like that idea if it is possible :)
However, It could have side effects. IE: Donations will be ongoing
as in monthly charges to keep it running. A meter might be
misinterpreted as "Looks like they got everything coverd from the
meter (meter would also be another item needing updating) so i
dont see any reason to donate" - Just a thought

Now info like this is vital and would be nice to know!


  1. Recurring donations: XYZ $
  2. Onetime donations: ZYX $
  3. Current donation-reserve: XXYYZZ $
  4.  
  5. Stuff paid from the donations:
  6. - RAM-upgrade: 50$
  7. - ISP: 100$ / month
  8. - HD: 100$
  9. ...
  10. ...


Does XYZ/ZYX/XXYYZZ refer to donation names or just an overall number
of how many are contributing to each category?
Id prefer to just see numbers, and keep the Contributers names sperate.

I have a dual 2.8Ghz Xeon system with RAIDed drives on order from Dell. Should be delivered and ready in a couple of weeks. The cost for this was around $1200 out of my pocket. It should handle several hundred users. The ISP is currently giving us the colo space/bandwidth for free. They're the same ones that host the forums. Eventually they would like *something* to help the bandwidth costs at a minimum.

I'll update the top message with some additional info you suggest.

If anyone wanted to help me, as well as the shard, they could make a small icon incorperating the alexandria symbol and something with money that I can use as a dontate to the shard button on my server alert program.

*Edit* Rather than money, maybe use a stack/pile of uo gold?
