So! Server costs are mounting, and for the foreseeable future, I can not continue to cover them alone. Couple that with supplemental costs, and DW is actually quite costly to maintain. We have around $1200/year in technology costs that mostly come out of my pocket, and as much as I would love to continue doing that, the fact that I've done it for so long means I am not in a position to replace my computer right now. 

We won't be doing premium/paid time - as I don't think that's a direction any of us want to see DW go in. However, we do have the capacity to run game servers on our box. I would be happy to put the time into updating and maintaining an Ark, Minecraft, Terraria, Starbound, Dedicated Battlefield/COD server or other platform. If people are contributing to the server, I think that's only fair. Contributors will be able to vote once a month for which server they would like to see provided, and will be able to suggest servers (we will need to see if running the server is viable).

My intention for this is three fold. First, is to use it to offset our server cost. Once that goal is met, surplus funds will be put towards a new computer. Once that goal is met, I plan to use the funds to offset some of our development costs - for example, Brendan works nearly full time at times developing software out of the goodness of his heart for the game, often behind the scenes and with little or no benefit to himself, and I would like to be able to offer him some amount to credit him for his time.

Tiers
1/20th
$5 or more per month 1 patron
This will cover approximately 1/20th of our monthly server costs. If the entire room pitched in this amount monthly, we would be able to put funds away for the future.
1/10th
$10 or more per month 2 patrons
This would cover 1/10th of our monthly server cost! This would be enough to cover server expenses for you and another player.
1/4th
$25 or more per month 1 patron
This would cover 1/4th of our monthly expenses. If even 5 people did this, we would have a monthly surplus.
1/2
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
This would cover 1/2 of our server costs. If two people did this monthly, we would be covered.
1/1
$100 or more per month 0 patrons
I don't expect anyone would ever actually commit to $100.00 a month apart from me, but if you're feeling amazingly generous...
Goals
$46 of $100 per month
At this point, Dimensional War is self sustaining. We'll be taking in enough money to cover all of our expenses month to month.
