Hey there, just a quick update. Multiple persons have been asking me for a way to donate money for the work on NE. I've finally managed to finish the donation page.



The donations go to my personal paypal account and because I've no idea how many and how often these will happen, I currently do not expect to use the money for a paid service (we use none). It's for all the people who want to show their gratitude, thank me for the time and efforts I've invested in this project or keep up my motivation to continue improving NE. Mr. Green

If you do not like paypal and would prefer to send money to either me or someone else from the team directly, just send me a message/mail to let me know. Cool

Great! Wink
But is it really meant to be "I do not get anything from donations >1€"?

It is more to support the mod than anything. Think about it, they've been working for nothing for ten years! Modders do this for free, they should get something in return.

Perhaps donators could be added into credits, but nobody actually reads credits and even if they do, they will see your name for ten seconds and forget about it.

I loved the "Be great and donate" lol
Could be an awesome political campaign slogan for donations haha

Look, he hates the mere idea of a Korean civ so much, that he felt the urge to edit his post just to blackmail me. lol

That depends on the amount of the bribe money then. Devil

@roy: Indeed I consider the donations purely symbolical. They're neither primarily for the mod itself (because it never needed it) nor are they supposed to be a salary of some kind (impossible for ~10 years). In fact they're for me more like motivation boosts or symbolic compensations for all of my past, current and future work, thoughts and time I dedicated to NE and also AoE in general. I think it's obvious for most people who've been following the mod for a while that the future of NE largely relies on my motivation and efforts.

Neither I nor NE are reliant on the money. I mean, I have been doing this for almost 10 years without ever having asked for or received a single penney for it. And I'm still not asking for it or making any demands as it's purely optional and up to everyone's liking. That's also why donations remain symbolical and no design decision regarding NE shall nor can be influenced through donations. It's just there for people who have been asking for ways to support NE/thank and motivate me - and if you think through it these two things are eventually more or less the same. Wink

I plan to, but preparing and making an obligatory video simply takes more time than setting up a html page with a paypal button. Wink
