we got 4550 members and if each person can send in $10 that would be $45500
speaking of the site I was looking at who owns it and it shows Registrant: Per Inge Mathisen
Per, how much does it cost to run a server for warzone? you guys don't accept donations it seems
It's perfectly fine - the hard part is dividing it. Most OSS projects just give it to whoever runs the server (in our case, Kamaze - I'm sure he's less likely to find legal problems with a donation if he's the one getting the money ).
i think it is a good way of gaining some money to sustain the project and the site...etc dont you think? And also please put a donate button to help you guys perhaps you shold even be able to work only in the game if you receive enough donations and even contract new developers
There is also the portable version of warzone that they ask for donations and none of the profits are sent to the developers here.

I think that in this case the only real cost is to get domain up, or wz doesn't use server from projects like sourceforge etc. for main page (github account for VCS hosting is free if repositories are public)?
Well then why dont we use the democracy and elect a president for the ressurrection project? Or make in the donations several options like donate to the artwork or donate here to the coders... I think that there are several people that loves or at least liked this game enough to donate... Just in the site that i found you guys there has been 150000 downloads!!! And in the comments the game rating is 9.7!!!
then I found this remarkdak180 wrote: Everything that requires an outlay of money that the Project currently does is donated by members of the dev team; we do not accept outside donations at this time.
so it isn't possible to get new features if you donate? I would donate $10 to get a easy way to add new units in!Coming from the blender community, I've seen it done, but it's not without its problems.
-The dev will have to set up his own donation system, to make sure no one else gets the money
-Many people don't realize that they cannot expect much from a donation of, say, 20€. That is a single hour of work.
-In fact, one cannot legally require any result from a donation
how about the rest of you?
how much would you be able to donate for warzone?
