      Hi fellow EDMWers,

      The admin team is officially requesting for donations to keep our new server up and running. We had a long brainstorming session over the past few days (we humbly apologise for the delays). The conclusion we came to was that if we want a thriving community, we jolly well have rock solid servers so we don't disappoint the community. Already, our server load is fast approaching the limit – we are getting in excess of 1,000 guests during peak period.

      Our team has underwritten virtually all the costs to date - and we will require monetary contributions to keep the EDMW forum alive. The current longluntan server we are sitting on is free and can be shut down any moment. At the same time, the other rebel community also lack the resources and manpower to maintain a big server like us without some serious monetary support and a full team of IT professionals so eventually we all need a long-term solution. There is no way to keep all of us EDMWers together in one place, unless we move back to PetPet's embrace, or perhaps some other forum.. but I believe no other forum in Singapore will accept our infiltration and our KYM threads.

      Transparency of Donations
      We will be fully transparent about every single cent we receive. We will upload screenshots of all bank transfers made at the end of each day, and we will reflect all contributions properly. Likewise, any expenses will be recorded, and invoices will be uploaded for everyone's perusal.

      Usage of Donations
      The new forum has been designed using the latest vbulletin software, which hardwarezone is currently running an older version of. The one-off cost of S$584.42 (US$399) has already been paid for. On the hardware side, the vbulletin software will run on a dedicated Xeon octo-core server that will cost us US$119/month that will support a very large number of users at the same time. Surpluses will be kept, and will not be withdrawn other than for actual forum expenses.

      Account Number


      Kindly PM @Admin for the account number

      For paypal , kindly use this link
      http://forums.edmw.xyz/index.php?donate/


      Once donated , kindly PM @Admin to verify
      Thanks


      We understand that soliciting for donations will require a leap of faith and trust from everyone... but we hope that the amount of work (mostly behind the scenes though!) we have done over the past few days can convince everyone that we are serious about keeping the community alive, and we are not out to scam people of a few bucks.

      Finally, thank you for being one of the rebels, and helping to make EDMW history.

      It's good to be home. [​IMG]

      There are three kinds of people in this world: people who make it happen, people who watch what happens, and people who wonder what happened.

      Spirit and efforts very much appreciated, will support.

      Oops ok sorry. Was abit cautious because anyone could have ride on this hype to post such things. Even if the impostor manage to cheat $50 before thread closed its still quick cash.

      With that being said and this being stickied, SARPORK!

      Should have paid for deluxe membership here instead of CCB pubor SPH zzz

      The donation drive will have to be ongoing as server costs are on a monthly basis.

      We have also set up an alternative donation platform on Paypal, thanks!

      Will be good to share the server hosting company so people can know more such as bandwidth, diskspace, etc.? Or the team is afraid that too much information will bring in unwanted 'attacks' ?

      Admin, faster do something to get your PayPal Account verified. If there are suddenly large amounts of money coming into that account PayPal will lock that account. And that account is not registered to anyone's name lagi easy to kana lock.

      I already donated to that account liao. I don't want to see that account bo tai bo chi tio lock by paypal.
