  • Trench Wars Holiday Donation Drive

    UPDATE 1: We've migrated to a $50/month plan after re-assessing our server requirements. It's a bit tight, but we can make it work! Zone functionality shouldn't be affected. But please let me know if you notice anything unusual. The zone still needs your donations!

    UPDATE 3: The donation page is once again providing coupons for donations. Thanks to Zazu for sorting this out. If you made a donation and did not receive a coupon, please leave a message in the thread, DM me or ?msg me in-game, and I'll issue a manual coupon once it's verified from Paypal. Sorry for the inconvenience.


    ---

    Without your support, Trench Wars as we know it will be shutting down December 31st, 2019.

    Trench Wars bots, websites and forums are 100% volunteer-funded and supported. Server costs are only $50 per month (updated with new costs). Yet the most recent accounting puts us at just $600, leaving just 1 year of funding. If we run out of funding, all bots, websites, forums and files hosted by and associated with Trench Wars will go offline. (However, the game server itself, which is provided by PriitK, will continue to run.)

    Generous donors have kept this ship afloat for decades now. Without them, TW would be long gone. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has donated in the past -- and another thank you for everyone who has donated their time and effort as part of staff, as a league organizer, as a squad captain, as a community content contributor, or as a die-hard player that keeps the game going.

    In normal circumstances, these few humble financial donors have been enough to ensure the longevity of TW. However, in recent years, server costs have begun to outstrap donations. It's time to come together to save the zone!

    Have you enjoyed TW over the years? Has it been part of your life for a long time now? This is your chance to give a little something back in tribute to those great memories. Remember all of the people you've met (and destroyed), the leagues, the events, the rivalries, and the friendships that continue to this day. Think about what that's been worth to you. Can you give $20, $10, or even just $5 to make sure TW keeps going strong? For every $50 donated, TW can survive for 1 more month! Click the link below to give any amount:



    During this special promotion (running through the New Year):
    • All donations will receive DOUBLE the amount of complimentary PubBux. A great chance to increase your fat space stacks AND do something good for the zone.
    • Donate more than $10 and you can choose one of the weekend events. (Post in this thread, DM me, or ?message me in-game after donating.)
    • Donate more than $50 and your name and donation amount will appear on the public map for a limited time! (Please notify me if you do NOT want your name to appear, or select "Anonymous" when making your donation.)
    • The top 3 donors during the promotion will receive a special gift! (Details TBA)


    Thank you for considering a donation. We accept all major credit cards via PayPal (no account required). Everything helps!

    Donate here: http://www.trenchwars.org/donations


    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year to all! And don't forget: have guns and travel Subspace.

              Sure just because you say its $600 and give a vague list of services/websites we're supposed to believe you?

              1. List every website you're paying for.
              2. List the hosting provider.
              3. Explain why you're paying for more than 1 site.
              4. Centralize all sites on 1 host provider which would be 50% cheaper
              5. Also get rid of redundant sites, make 1 site that does everything.

              This is the only way I would donate money to you. It's called transparency. If i'm not seeing the website costs from the host itself then I'm not believing shit you say. It is the internet after all, and you don't believe shit I say when I want to help. Works both ways.

              Currently I'm on a host where I pay $70 a year and get three websites. The fuck you paying for? DDOS protection?

              IMO if you don't want to be transparent, we are better off letting the sites fall. And this way you're forced to make 1 website that does everything on 1 host provider for $70 a month. We'd be helping you dev properly and save money in the process.

              This post you made qan is scummy, it's actually insulting, a plea to emotions and nostalgia of the players with very little facts. Seriously fuck you. Learn how to ask for money. Oh and a plea to peoples ego's too. Lets not forget that.

                Your biggest donation to the game would be uninstalling. You don't even know what the hell qan's post is about. Please shut the fuck up already.

                This is amazing to think about. SS has been the best game I've ever played. Consider a lot of these people very good friends. Wish I could fly my warbird over the traffic in DC. Yet this was only possible because some generous people paid over $20,000 during the last 20 years while I enjoyed it for free.

                Anyway, donated $25 just now. Took 25 seconds. Then I logged in and collected my 600k pub bux. Shit felt good man. Merry Christmas. I once spent new year's eve with people on here way back when my life was completely shitty. But that night wasn't shitty. This game is the shit. There's still some good times to be had. Now that we're all adults, how about you spend some of the christmas money you've saved up and donate.

                T W D T 2 0 1 9 SIGN THE FUCK UP WE GOTTA GET PODCASTS GOING. I'LL CAP THIS SHIT AGAIN IF I NEED TO I LOVE SUBSPACE!!!!!!!

                  I'm pretty sure everyone, and I mean everyone, knows from my post that I moved on and quit. Yet here you are, still going on about me covering expenses in a game I don't play anymore. Seriously Jessup, how dumb are you? Because every post you make nowadays your IQ gets lower and lower. For the fking last time, grow up, do something with your life and stop being such a whiny little bitch. Ok?

                  Now go play TWDD and run around in circles.

                        Judge people more idiot, morons who throw stones when they literally act the same fucking way. What you just said to me doesn't make you better than me. So since we're the same why are you fucking judgeing? Do you know me? What I've done? What work i've done for zones and squads? No. You just dislike me and rage and cry about it. Eat shit seriously.

                        Nothing in what I said was incorrect. PROVE INCORRECTNESS. DEBATE IDEAS. DON'T FUCKING BRING THINGS TO PERSONAL ARGUMENTS ABOUT HOW I SUCK SO THEREFORE WHAT I SAY MUST BE B.S DEBATE FUCKING IDEAS OR FUCK OFF.

                        IS THIS INCORRECT?
                        1. QANS scum post was a plea to emotion, nostalgia and ego.
                        2. No details were given on the "accounting costs"
                        3. He says various things were paid for but doesn't list the hosting providers with a link to their costs.
                        4. THERE IS NO TRANSPARENCY
                        5. He doesn't trust me to do shit but then his fucking double standard kicks in and he expects everyone to blindly trust him, because he's a piece of shit that runs on "reputation" who meanwhile acts totally different in PMS than he does in public. You see his tainted ass dissing me in public? He speaks respectfully in public, the sign of someone who cares about popularity.

                        P.S I might have told someone to uninstall once in 20 years, and i was joking.

                          How can you ask people for money, without giving details? I would never fucking do that, because despite all my trash talk i have more morality all of you fucking pretenders.
