Donation icons have been updated. I was a few days behind so there was a minor backlog. 8 were added to the list.

As many of you know, I try to reply personally to everyone who donates, but this time I can't. If I spent the time to craft 8+ thank-you emails right now, I would not get much else done and I want to keep my upgrade momentum going.

Still I want to thank these and everyone else who has donated. January and February have been exciting months with over ten donations each. This is the most we've ever had. I was definitely into the break-even range each of those months. I can't tell you what a help it is and I sincerely appreciate it.

To all those who have sent me messages through the post office, I appreciate the extra effort it takes to write an actual letter and drop it in the mailbox. They're fun to read and I've kept every one I've received over the years.

I've got a lot of work planned for MT over the coming weeks. I should finally finish a long-overdue upgrade to the FAQ. I have the big upgrade to UBB 6.5 to do as well as continue to tweak some images around here. Once these are finished, expect a cleanup of the literary forums, especially the Library. In the back of my mind, I'm still working on a way to offer MT Gear to the masses as well as a couple other interesting additions.

Thank you to all who have helped make Minas Tirith what it is today and what it will be tomorrow.

Cheers!

Some of you may have noticed that the Roll of Honor has reverted a bit. Some of the donations from February and March are gone.

It was my fault. I downloaded the file, but edited and uploaded an older file by mistake. I will try to correct this error this evening. []

Top of the page. To the right. Click on "donate". Do what it says. Easy-peasy!

OK, the Roll of Honor is repaired.

If you have a donation icon, please check February and March and see if I left you out of the list. Unfortunately, I have no good way to search for only those with icons, so it's possible I may have missed some. I think the list should be accurate.

Lugbúrz probably hasn't noticed this as he hasn't posted much lately, but his donation icon isn't right.

I'm sure I saw it as a Mithril icon at least a week ago, but it has gone back to a Silver colour. And in the Roll of Honour, Lug is listed as having a Gold icon.

I just realized how appropriate my name is going to be when I make a donation next month. []

A son of Fëanor is going to be one of the first to have the nifty little "star of Eärendil" - a Silmaril. Such beautiful irony there. []

It has been a good month. The generosity of our citizens always amazes me. I was afraid that with MT Gear, people wouldn’t think I needed donations anymore. Actually, with the slow way orders have been dragging in, I’ll be lucky to break even. And after the initial orders, I don’t expect to get many orders in the future.

Donations are still helpful to keeping Minas Tirith alive and I am thankful for each one I get.

Donations are not mandatory and I don't pressure people to make them. Perhaps if there was a financial emergency, but otherwise it is completely voluntary.

Just for the record. []
