April 2021 Donations & Finances


Recommended Posts

  • Homecoming Team

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying testing Issue 27, Page 2 on the beta server. Your feedback and bug reports have been immensely helpful as we continue to prepare this update for the live servers.

 

As usual, a quick reminder that there are more ways to support Homecoming than just through donations. For a general overview of the different ways you can help Homecoming, check out this thread.

 

We’re always in need of more people to help test upcoming updates on our public beta server; the bug reports and feedback that we receive from testers helps us immensely. For more information on how to get started on the beta server, check out our Read This to Get Started thread and the rest of the Beta Forums.

 

Additionally, if you have Discord Nitro then please consider using a Nitro server boost on our public Discord server. Maintaining over 30 Nitro boosts gives all of our members new and enhanced features on the server including additional emojis, a higher upload limit, better voice chat quality, and our vanity URL. Click here to read more about Server Boosting. We’re currently at 38 boosts and will lose our Level 3 perks if we drop below 30 for more than a few days. We greatly appreciate everyone who has put their Nitro boosts towards our Discord server!

 


March 2021 Breakdown

Last month we accepted $5,397.99 in donations, $2.05 over our target for the month. As always, the remainder is put towards the next month’s expenses.

 

Here is the breakdown of what March’s funds went towards:

  • $4,645.44 for our hardware infrastructure from OVH
  • $622.00 to pay the latest invoice from our primary legal counsel
  • $121.46 for our Google G-Suite services
  • $25.00 for our Air instance from Paperspace
  • $10.00 for our Atlassian Jira (Cloud) service
  • $9.73 for security / administration software
  • $6.89 for the AWS EC2 instance serving our email

April 2021

We have received another invoice from our primary legal counsel for their work done up to February 28th which has mostly consisted of assisting us with preparing, reviewing, and updating legal documentation. The total for this invoice is $1,224.72 and will be paid in mid-April.

 

This work is an ongoing process though, so we are also expecting another similarly-sized invoice next month for their work after February 28th, though the total for this invoice is to be determined.

 

The donation target for April 2021 is $6,039.56. Here is a breakdown of how the funds are allocated:

  • $4,645.44 for our hardware infrastructure from OVH
  • $1,224.72 to pay the latest invoice from our primary legal counsel
  • $124.94 for our Google G-Suite services
  • $25.00 for our Air instance from Paperspace
  • $10.00 for our Atlassian Jira (Cloud) service
  • $9.73 for security / administration software
  • $8.56 for the AWS EC2 instance serving our email

 

Our donation system will be open as of the time of this post with a donation target of $6,039.56 and will automatically close once that target is met.

 

As always, thank you for all of the support!

Woohoo. I finally managed to make a donation before the window closed. 🙂

Hello! I've been playing for a little while now but just now getting around to the forums and finally finally figuring out how to support the game financially. When the next donation window rolls around (April 24 if I understand correctly), will it be possible to set up a recurring monthly donation? Or is it one-time only each time the window opens?

Thanks!

That second thing. 😉

Donation window is announced, everybody digs deep for a couple of hours, and just like that...it's over.  Typically.

The window hardly lasts an hour to be fair...

I've only managed to donate once.  I wish there was a way to subscribe to an email announcement when the window opens so I'd know to hit the donation button fast enough.

I subscribe to their Discord channel, and it sends an audible alert when the announcement is made that the donation window is opened.
