This week brings along a new way to support VHS-7. Recently, we have implemented a concrete savings plan for community funds with a VHS-7 treasury account acting as a reserve.
We've removed the old donation link to the Streamline public pay, and launched our new Prometheus donation gateway on our Deathrun Neue server as a pilot program.
You can now purchase VIP as well as various ingame items to support the community and keep the servers alive, and the entire thing is automated and requires no waiting period, no staff contact, and privileges are applied within 2 minutes of purchase confirmation.
##How are the funds used?
VHS-7 funds are spent as follows:
* $120.00/mth - Server hosting fees
* $30.00/yr - domain and webhosting fees
* $5.00/mth - misc. fees such as external SQL databases
* $undef/mth - Scriptfodder purchases and upgrades
We like to provide enough transparency for our players so that they know how their purchases are used to support our community.
