Hello everybody and welcome to 2021, the proof that 2020 hasn't quite ended yet. What are we here for? Your money!
Pictured: our situation and what we hope you do.
TR does not usually accept donations, except when necessary.
As noted in our FAQ:
Q: What is the policy on donations?
Being an effort of volunteers, our project has little use for donations. Consequently, Tamriel Rebuilt does not accept unsolicited donations and does not use crowdfunding platforms. We may host rare donation drives to pay for website hosting. This has been necessary only once in our history so far. Any such donation drives will be announced on and organized through our website, not third-party platforms. [...]
We are now hosting this very kind of donation drive, our first one in over 10 years and hopefully the only one necessary for the next 10 years.
What do we need the money for?
Basically, covering hosting costs of our website. Despite the site being somewhat plain in these web 4.0 days, we are using several AWS (Amazon Web Service) services for Tamriel Rebuilt. These are, while quite responsive and forward-looking, also costing quite a bit of money, about 40 to 50 U.S. dollars per month. While these costs had been covered privately, and therefore invisibly to the public, the ongoing crisis events all over the world have seen our reserves emptied and we are in the unenviable situation of having to ask for additional funding.
What can you do to help?
For a limited time, we are accepting your donations to help fund our website hosting. Donate your money to email@example.com via PayPal. Please consider this your unique opportunity to help Tamriel Rebuilt thrive for the foreseeable future, and to ensure that our efforts of rebuilding Morrowind's mainland continue to have a home, right here, on the internet. The donation link will remain available until we have achieved the relatively modest donation goals required to replenish our web hosting war chest, and we will post an update once we do.
On behalf of all of us, thank you for your support.
