note that the Donation Fund is currently inactive. We are
not accepting donations and the record below is intended solely
for archivation purposes and to give recognition to those
who have donated in the past.
In order to better maintain the mud, we have (after suggestions
from both players and wizards) decided to start a donation
fund for Midnight Sun.
The fund will be used to buy new equipment for the computer
that Midnight Sun is running on. The administration decides
what to purchase from the fund, and donators may restrict
the use of their donations.
ATTENTION: At this point we are
not accepting any donations. We received enough donations
to buy the hardware we desperately needed. Gratitude goes
out to all those who donated to ensure that this game is still
alive and will celebrate it's 10th year of public availibilty
- The fund can only be used for Midnight Sun
- All donations should be accounted
- All purchases should be accounted
- One person should be accountable
- Anonymity should be granted (name or donation)
- All information should be public (with an anonymity restriction)
- Donators may restrict the use of their contribution
- Donating is strictly voluntairy
- Donators characters is not treated specially and are not
given any favours
- Hardware not in use will be donated or lent to LUDD
Please note that all donations must be done of free will,
we do not want anyone to feel forced or obliged to donate.
The game is to be free to play for anyone!
Please state if your identity as a donator should be anonymous
or if the donation should be anonymous. We will uphold confidentiality
for those that should wish so. However, please add a return
address so that the donation can be returned (it will be kept
A donation can be hardware or doughware. Small gifts are
equally welcome as bigger ones. We reserve the right to return
donations if we feel we cannot accept them, so make sure to
mark the gift with a return address.
If we feel a donation is inappropriate or otherwise not
acceptable, it will be returned to the donator's return address.
If no such exists and the donator is unknown for a period
longer than a month, it will be forwarded to some charity
institution such as the Red Cross. So, if you want to be totally
anonymous and we cannot accept the donation, please tell us
what to do.
Please send US dollars or Swedish kronor (SKR), but if nothing
else is possible then your local currency is ok. Just remember
to put a return address on the letter so that if it is not
accepted by the bank, we could return it.
Just to give you something to compare currencies with, a
USD (dollar) is about 8 SKR (swedish krones). See SEB
for detailed info.
How to donate:
Send the donation by mail to the accountable administrator,
or agree on other terms for donation with the accountable
As Galadriel is accountable, send it to:
<address snipped, We currently don't solicit or accept donations>
Please mark the donation with "The Midnight Sun Fund"
and a return address. If you want to restrict the use of the
donation, state what restrictions should be applied.
It is now also possible to donate directly to the new account
for the Midnight Sun Fund. It is an account in S-E-Banken,
5320 00 673 14, but it might not be accessible from
abroad and posting will be cheaper (at least for the small
sums we talk about here).
The address to the bank is:
Skandinaviska-Enskilda Banken Luleå
971 28 Luleå
The bank office SWIFT code is: ESSESESS
If the donation is not accounted for after 2 weeks, kick
Galadriel hard! ;-)
Thanks to the many kind donations, we finally were able
to buy a new host for Midnight Sun. We bought it for roughly
12.000 SKR and we got a lot for the money. We now run on:
Pentium II 450 MHz
128 Mb RAM
4 GB disk
100 Mbps D-Link Ethernet
