2015 DoomLeague.org Fundraiser

Do you like the WDL and all of the other things that we do here? So do we! Apart from the large amount of time and effort it takes to run these events, it also costs a little bit of money. Between all of our direct expenses, we're looking at near $300 per year. What I'd like to do is open up the ability for the community to optionally pitch in some cash if they think that DoomLeague.org and the services we run are worth it to them.

We currently run our servers out of Atlanta and they have been pretty well received from most geographical corners of our community. We'd like to keep these running for the foreseeable future.

Any excess money earned from donations will go towards strengthening infrastructure that relates to what we do, that list of ideas includes (but is not limited to):
  • Improvements to the website and statistics
  • Improvements to Odamex (specifically targeting bug fixes and features that directly concern our community)
  • Potential servers at other locations
  • The ability to host custom servers on WDL's machine (ala the Best Ever servers on Zandronum)
Also, feel free to list anything you'd like to see from the DoomLeague.org team as well. We won't make any promises, but we'd love to hear your thoughts.

If any of this seems valuable to you, please consider donating. Every little bit helps. Thank you!

Are we allowed to buy NY servers for when the league runs?

Maybe, but I'd rather fund our main server set first

What a splendid idea! I will begin making my famous banana bread.

As a fighter, I've always dreamed of becoming a baker.

Goal has been met thanks to a very generous contribution from Starrk. I finished up the rest of the remaining balance. We're good until next October!
