    Due to an unforeseen error on our hosts end, our server is using way more resources than we are supposed to be. Now this is not something that we can correct without down-sizing the server/map/mods/etc; itself.

    In order to maintain the map and make-up of a server we have already I ask for everyone's help in pulling together and helping to fund the server itself.

    https://pingperfect.com/index.php?m=public_pay

    This links directly to the server hosting account where the funds can be used to pay for an upgrade to the server to suit our useage, and continue to ensure that it can stay up and running. I sincerely hate to ask this of everyone, and I apologize that this was not something I caught myself a long time ago. I appreciate any and all help anyone can provide to help keep our server alive.

    If funds cannot be raised to maintain our current setup, the server will be forced to wipe in order to downsize to a smaller map and creature count. I know this is not an option everyone is fond of, and I would personally prefer not to have to do this myself as well. Unfortunately this may be the only route available to us all in order to keep our community together.

    Zera,

    The Dragons Guild will not financially support your business venture in this aspect. We are changing servers and will cut all affiliation with Iron Nexus and its affiliates. I recommend that the next time you try to extort your player base, understand three things.

    1. Don't ask your player base to pay for a free to play game that you willingly chose to create and support on your own accord. I recommend that you give some serious thought into your disposable income before continuing with Iron Nexus.
    1. Time spent in a game is always replaceable and without a server population it is easily replaceable.
    2. Your player base is aware of the costs associated with starting, running and maintaining a Wurm Unlimited server.

    In the future, I recommend you do a better job actually connecting and building a relationship with your player base before you ask for the money in their wallet.

    Sincerely,

    Residents of the Dragon's Guild

    I understand your decision to choose to leave Iron Nexus. I hate to see you go, but I understand completely.
    I only hope that you understand however, that financial struggles occur and despite my efforts I have been completely out of work for the past month on a Medical Issue. This is the only reason at this time I am unable to support a needed "Growth" in the server's resources to maintain it.

    I would not consider asking the community who takes advantage of a service I have chosen to provide, maintain and ensure runs smoothly, for assistance in assuring it survives this month's hosting as extortion. I could have easily just allowed the server to completely die or wipe without explanation of the situation and given no one the opportunity to understand how and why.
