    Just watched this this morning.

    This guy's just a troll and the effort was pretty weak. I'm not impressed. The key to trolling like this, my dude, is to manifest doubt. Everyone here knows our devs work hard for free. Those of us that donate know that it's being well spent. Everyone knows that you're wrong and that you're sad, about what we do not care.

    Legal implications aside, even if the devs took any and all of the money I've donated to the project, and spent it on beer, jet skis, or go-karts, I'd say it was money well spent. I don't really care where the money goes, so long as I can keep logging into the game.

    But ya. Obviously this Curtis guy is just a bad troll.

    And this is why we do this. We not only grew up with this game, but I'd have to say even with the weird bickering at times, we have one of the best gaming communities I have ever seen.

    I may catch flak for this, but I've always thought the special atmosphere and magic that AK breeds came from its origins as a Mac community. An opressed origin, trying to computer game in a world not built for them. Not because people with macs were special necessarily, but because this was the only place you could go, the Oasis in the desert.

    Yea i agree tulu, there was a general sense of fear when the PC hack came to AK that it would ruin the community, we kind of banded together and fought against it

    Lol. I lost so much money from working on this project in opportunity costs that I regret having gotten involved in the first place.

    Just for the sake of argument, if $1000/mo were true and it all went into our pockets: that's 1000 divided six or more ways. That would amount to like a dollar an hour for me.

    That is a sentiment that you, and you alone, hold, I'm sure. I couldn't be more thankful for the contribution you and the other devs have made here. You guys have touched a lot of people with your work here.

    Torven is my favorite person in the world. At first I was really upset by some of the changes Torven advocated for, but then i realized how much better its made the game. I am so grateful for everything each dev does here. I dont know where half of us would be if this server didnt exist, its the greatest place on earth imo. Screw the guy who reopened this thread.

    I'm pleased with what we've managed to achieve here, which is far better than I had ever expected when I started, but it came at a large personal cost. And not merely monetary; I abandoned my friends in other games to devote myself to this project

    Is the entertainment value of this server worth at least a few cents per hour to you?
    Do you want PoP?
    Is your personal net worth higher than an squirrel?

    If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you should consider donating to Torven now. Send him a PM on Discord for more info.

    I appreciate the sentiment but I'm not the only developer.

    Darkpaw's finances and management are motivating me more than anything else

    Maybe we could chip in and buy their EverQuest IP and assets for $1,050 (final offer)

    This POS is a troll..

    We love our devs, end of story.. these guys work their tails off (that's a serious understatement) pouring countless HOURS upon HOURS to bring this dream into reality.
    This has been over HALF A DECADE, of rigorous coding, babysitting, flame posts, and bullshit for these guys to ensure we have a server to log in and enjoy.

    Don't mind these idiots, I feel like I can speak for the entire community and say we can't express just how much we appreciate everything that you guys do.
    Maybe this server should consider going to invite only from this point on, if this is the type of new "player" that wants to join our awesome little community.

    Devs, keep up the good work.. and thank you so much for everything you do.

    Probably not interested, but, I’d be happy to provide Dropbox space for the backup. My business account has 15TB of cloud available with less than 1TB in use.

    Edit: Minsc and I are only like 45-48 or something and haven’t played since the world went nuts, but, appreciate all the hard work you guys put in.
