Guild Services

In order to support Trivial, and all the things we do as a guild, some people have been kind enough to donate funds for some of the out-of-game services we use.

This page is here to both recognize and support those individuals who are looking after funding these services for us. If you would also like to help out the guild by throwing a few dollars to the people paying for these services, check out the details below:

Ventrilo Server

Dorkina has a better way than the donate button:
Typefrag Ventrilo Donation Page & Tracker

This will show you how much has been donated. All the below still applies...and thanks to all who keep us talking.

Over the years, some folks have asked how they can contribute to paying for the vent server that Trivial uses. Our esteemed webmaster has worked out what should be an easy way: click on the button at the top of the message and send whatever you feel like sending. Just so that everyone is clear: we're not a non-profit (nor are we for-profit), so don't try writing this off on your taxes. ) It's just a way to chip in on the cost of the server.

This is completely voluntary. You are not required to contribute anything. I don't think we even have a way to track any details of who contributes what. The donation button sends the money to Dorkina, who pays the bill to Typefrag, as he has been doing for years. The vent server runs a bit more than $100/year, just to give you an idea.

Website Hosting

We have moved the website hosting from its previous location (where we had > 20 second page loads) to a new one, which serves up the guild pages lickity-split! This comes at a cost, of course. Our current hosting package runs about US$160 / yr. If you would like to help Inomi pay for this, drop a few bucks his way via PayPal below, or help out with a WoW Token. Those go a long way as well.

Raid Parse Logs

Few people know that we are actually paying a little for our use of Warcraft Logs and World of Logs. This is mostly to maintain the historical backlog of parses that we've accumulated over the years.

Currently, our Illustrious Raid Leader, Honesty is looking after funding this. He has our most sincere thanks for doing so.
