Donating to 7 Degrees of Freedom -------------------------------- Players are not asked to pay for access to 7 Degrees of Freedom, the service is provided for free. However, eventually someone has to pay the company which hosts the game. This payment includes upkeep of the domain name and the shell account which the mud resides on. The cost of this is 174.97 GBP (about 270 US dollars) per year. Donations in order to pay for the hosting will be received gratefully from any of the 7 Degrees of Freedom players. It should be recognised that this is a donation in the true sense and no extra in-game advantage will be given. However, in recognition of your donation a statue of you will be placed in the 7DOF museum with a written plaque of your choosing (within reason) and you will be given access to the prophet communication line. In addition, the donation is only to pay for the upkeep of the account which the MUD resides on and gives the donator no intellectual property rights to the concepts or code contained within 7 Degrees of Freedom which are the copyright of various people (see "credits"). Making a donation also does not give you the right to abuse policy. If you would like to make a donation then contact Jaakan.
