    • Sketchley's Macross Gateway - check today!
The MRG's renewal deadline has come (and alas, already gone!) and we're short £59.98.

If we don't find the money in the immediate future (the due date was May 11, 2011!), the MRG and it's affiliated sites (the UN Spacy Database and so on) will disappear.

Payment can be made by credit card or PayPal Payment.

If you can help, in whole or in part, please contact myself, Cerebellum von Doom or Jester, as soon as possible.

Thank you.


PS if worse comes to worse, and the MRG goes down - you can contact me at aaronsketch@HOTdelete_thisMAIL.com (delete the delete_this), and I'll be able to get you in touch with the people the money needs to get to.  Of course, if you don't copy the mail address down, you'll have a good chance of finding it if you search google for "VF-25 stats" and look at the cache...

Jester would be the man to talk to about where the money goes.  Firing a PM with his contact address.

From the amounts offered, I figure we're about 1/4 to 1/3 of the way to the goal.

Any one else?

EDIT: edited e-mail addy so that any spam bots that pick up on it won't be able to abuse it.

Yep, and all done and paid now. Thanks to those that contributed. This years bill couldn't have come at a worse time for everyone running the site.

We went off line before I could got the most current addy.   Sketchley told me to use the old one.   You should have some funds from me in your old hotmail.

Sorry I missed the call on this one. I don't check the Announcement board very often and I would have thrown in if I'd seen it. If something like this comes up again please feel free to shoot me a message and I'll be happy to help.

** URGENT **

From our generous host:

Quote
(...), and am not sure how much longer I can pay for the website to stay up.  Its my deepest wish that this all stay up for as long as the internet exists, but unless we can get more players and some donations, I'm going to be forced to lose the domain and the website all at once.

Currently domain costs nothing until 2018 as I bulk purchased that far in advance.  The host, however, is costing me $5 usd a month.  I know that doesn't seem like much, but with no income at all, that's a burden I am afraid I may fail to meet.

People can direct pay for the host with this link, or they can send money to my paypal account.  I don't care which, just want to see these boards preserved

To preserve confidentiality, please post here or PM me, and I'll get back to you with the link for payments.
