Thank-You's for Donating
Donating is a good way for you to ensure that Miriani continues happily and healthily for many years to come! It's also a way to ensure that we have the processing power to comfortably run both Miriani and TSPM (oh yes, TSPM too!) and possibly other games in the future. What do you get out of this, you may ask? Why, here are the fabulous benefits!
NOTE: Please be aware that ALL UPGRADES are available to EVERYBODY, regardless of their donator status. Donating merely gains you access to a more convenient way to obtain the upgrades. They are all in one place rather than flying to 50 different planets. Miriani is a free game and donating merely provides you with conveniences and little things that make no real difference to the game. You will never be expected to pay to receive advanced technology.
- A big happy super special thank you combined with a warm fuzzy feeling!
- Access to special donator tradesman events (and possibly even the ability to request a tradesman). Tradesman are people who will make custom items for you, which may or may not include custom verbs. For instructions on requesting a tradesman, please click here.
- Access to an all-in-one starship upgrade center. Tell them what you want and they'll get it for you. Note: This service will not work fully during war time, depending on alliance relations between your alliance and the alliance supplying the upgrades.
- Access to a convenient shopping nexus that provides access to all of your favorite gadgets and items in one place.
- Feel special by gaining entrance into a special area reserved for donators, including private apartments, fine dining and special items not found anywhere else in the galaxy.
- Private apartments that include a private garage and, as a donator, we will customize the descriptions in your apartment if you wish. (After having us customize them, if you wish to change it, don't use the automated description tool on the room unless you wish to completely get rid of the description we made. Instead, call for us again.)
Please note that access to the above features is on a monthly basis. $5 will gain you one month of donator benefits. Once your time expires, any starships you have in your private garage will be moved to the public landing pad and you will have one week before your private apartment becomes inaccessible. Your apartment will not be deleted, though, so should you wish to donate again it will be there just as you left it.
Also, if you wish to make one large donation, we will credit you with the appropriate membership. So $25 would get you 5 months of donator benefits. And a hug.
If you mistakenly donate, please contact us immediately at email@example.com. We're able, and willing, to reverse the transaction with PayPal without anybody incurring any fees. It's important that you don't initiate a chargeback on your credit card, as this will cause unnecessary fees and complications for both sides. Simply e-mail us and we can have PayPal cancel the payment and return your money fee free.
We will only refund donations one week after receiving them, provided you have not taken advantage of the donator benefits outlined above.
Please be aware that we will NOT reimburse you for accumulated donator time. This means that if you have two months of donator time remaining, you CANNOT request that we send you $10 in exchange for removing your donator time. Donations are not to be considered savings accounts, prepaid credit cards, bank accounts, ATMs, or any other service that allows you access to funds on a whim.
Thanks in advance! Hopefully we can upgrade the server soon. You can verify your donator status by checking the INFO command in the game. You should see a line similar to "You have donated $200.00. Your donation benefits will expire on Sat Jun 12 15:44:15 2010 CDT." If you believe that enough time has passed and you still do not have donator status, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or ASSIST in the game and we will check into it. Thanks again for helping support Toastsoft!
This donation program is liable to change or discontinuation at any time. If the service were to discontinue, refunds will not be issued. By participating in the donator program or Miriani (or TSPM), you must follow all rules and policies outlined on the appropriate websites. Failure to comply with the policies can result in the termination of your donator status without a refund. Please note that the administrators reserve the right to cancel your donator membership at any time they see fit and any decisions made by them are final. Additionally, the benefits outlined above may change or abruptly stop at any time and are not 100% guaranteed. By donating, you indicate that you have read and agree to any of the terms and conditions outlined here.
Note: Making a donation will not get you unbanned, nor will it get any penalties removed. But we would be more than happy to accept the donation if you still wish to make it.
