The goal of this topic is to supply information about PEZ's "Project Kickstart".
Project Kickstart is a project started by me and Gump. Its goal is to raise enough money so that we are able to purchase new servers. To accomplish this goal, we need donators, which is what Project Kickstart is all about.
2. Achieving the goal
In order to achieve the goal and make Project Kickstart a success, we need donators. To help with this, I've created a page on which you can track how close we are to reaching our goal, and donate money. All payments are handled via PayPal (alternative methods may be available on request). All donations are handled automatically.
3. The actual goal
Our goal is to raise a total amount of £150. This will provide for approximately 3 months of server costs. In those 3 months, our hopes are to again become well-established. Plans are being made to ensure a steady income after our launch.
4. What happens to the money
The money will be used for 3 things:
1. Dedicated server costs
2. TCAdmin costs
3. Web hosting costs (this one)
Our goal is absolute transparency; you'll be able to see exactly how much our income is, how much money we spend, and what we spend it on.
5. What do I get for donating?
First and foremost, you get your beloved PEZ servers back. You'll once again be able to play on proper TTT servers with your old (and new) friends, without all the abusing admins, overpowered weapons and RDMers 99% of the other servers have.
If that's not a good enough reason to donate, depending on how much you donate, you'll also get special perks.
The special perks and what you get has yet to be decided. It'll include VIP, custom in-game tags and more. A seperate system for spending your donated money will be made later.
6. I'm convinced! How can I donate?
I've set up a page specifically for donations. Here, you can see our current progress, see which people have donated, and, of course, donate yourself. You can get there by following the following link:
In order to donate, enter the desired amount that you would like to donate. You'll be redirected by PayPal, where you can finish your transaction. After the transaction has been completed, you'll be redirected to a page where you can enter your forum name and SteamID. You'll then be added to our "Hall of Fame".
7. What happens if we don't reach our goal?
If we don't reach our goal, we'll try to find other ways to reach it. If we still don't succeed, everyone will be issued a full refund. All of the money will remain in the PayPal account until the goal has been reached.
8. What more can I do to help?
Spread the word! Try to convince other people to support the project. Hit up your old friends on Steam.
Also, if you have a certain set of skills you think we might find useful, hit me up.
To kick off the project, I've donated £30 to the project.
I hope we'll all be able to bring PEZ back to its former glory, or even better.
Thanks for your support!
