Donate to support Urban Dead

Urban Dead is accepting donations from its players as a means to support the maintenance and upgrading of the game server, and to keep it responsive and alive. These small gestures of generosity allow everyone to play the game for free.

Note: From the 1st of January 2015 players in European Union member states (excluding the UK) will no longer be eligible for donation rewards, as these count as "digital services" and fall under new "VATMOSS" EU tax laws which have no lower limit on business size and are impractical for a website making only a handful of sales in the EU each year. EU players are welcome to donate as a gesture of support by attaching a note to that effect on a donation, but I'm afraid we can't give back anything other than thanks in return.

For players in the UK and outside the EU, a payment of $5 (US dollars) will allow a player to have a character of their choice made immune from the 160-hits-per-day IP limit (although they'll still only have 50 Action Points, and each individual character has a personal 300-hit limit). Payments greater than $5 will allow multiple characters to become unlocked, at a rate of $5 per character.

To send a donation (by PayPal or credit/debit card), just click one of the buttons above - your local currency will be converted to US dollars. Part of the payment form will ask for the characters you want unlocked - give a list of those that you wish to be made immune from the IP limit. (Even if you're unaffected by the IP limit, it'd be good to have the donations linked to characters - we may well introduce future in-game gestures of appreciation for donating, and if we did we'd want to hand them out retroactively to our earlier supporters.)

Please make sure you specify the correct characters with your payment; this cannot be altered if you change your mind. Also only specify the characters you are paying to unlock - if you specify more characters than are covered by your payment, they'll just be processed in the order you listed them and excess characters will be ignored. Payments of less than five dollars will just be taken as general goodwill donations.

And to state the obvious: paying to unlock a character doesn't mean that it'll get any extra lenience if that character is banned or otherwise punished for abusing the game.

Payments are processed manually - you'll be sent an email when they've been applied. This could take anywhere between a few hours and three or four days.

If you haven't got a bank card or Paypal, then I'm afraid we can't really accept payments from you, as postal cheques aren't really worth the hassle. You could buy Kevan something from his Amazon wishlist and mention your character names in the note, for it to count as a payment equal to the value of the item, if you don't mind it taking a while to get through.

If you unlock a character in the permadeath cities of Monroeville or Borehamwood, the unlock flag can be shifted to a character in Malton at any time.
