Thanks everyone for your generous contributions! It’s awesome seeing the community come together to help keep this site afloat! The FUNdraiser is now over, so may your year be filled with many 48-hour game jams!
The donation system is still available if you really want to contribute more. At this point our hosting should be covered for over a year, so contributions above and beyond will be used at the organizers discretion. (I’ve been thinking about buying a pair of giraffes …) But really, we’ll probably keep a hefty buffer in case our hosting costs go up again After the optimization we did to the site, though, I’m hoping our costs will stay under control.
I just want to say a thanks again, this has been an awesome year for Ludum Dare and I can’t wait to see what happens in 2012!
P.S. a special thanks to PoV (Mike Kasprzak) for setting up the donation system! It worked great!
