I swear, this weird little niche game is going to outlive us all. In an admittedly questionable move, I have taken over Toadwater effective immediately, bought us a new server and transferred the game (sorry for the downtimes). Barring intervention from Travis, this situation should last at the least until 2022, and we are looking into ways to extend that.

As for now, the game is back up, on a new, blazingly fast server, that is even routed to mobile phones! As with all these things, server moves sometimes introduce or reintroduce issues, and please do feel free to report them. Now that I am the de facto leader, I feel a renewed duty to actually fix bugs instead of ignoring them and passive aggressively suggesting that it's your own fault for doing something dumb (which it of course totally is).

As I am paying for the new server, I appreciate any donations and subscriptions. If you have existing subscriptions, you need to change them to me, joerg.stoever@gmail.com. A special shout out goes to Trojal, our resident troll, who single handedly paid for the new server and the first month of keeping it up.

That being said, while I do appreciate any of your help, please do not worry that I will shut down Toadwater if it doesn't make enough money. The server doesn't cost that much, and I do have a job now.

I have not yet set up any sort of automated donation handling, and I'm honestly unsure how Travis' way worked. Please do feel free to contact me about any unfilled donations (remember to send them to my address, not donations@toadwater.com, for now). The fastest ways to contact me are through the above email or through the chat, by simply saying "twisti" on the chat, it will notify me if I am anywhere near my PC.

Keep emailing him and we do the best to keep this alive and much needed for it does be able to keep this game going.

I don't think the game needs any new content, but a yearly event would be nice.  I still remember the Star Wars South Winter Island event, that involved lightsabers  Smiley

With crashes occurring on what is basically a daily basis now, the sooner the better.

...come to think of it, seems like the game's been 2 1/2 years dry of any new content...unless Twisti has actually added anything aside from bugfixes since then.

I will email him as well. Hopefully we can put [twisti] in the driver's seat. Maybe he can turn TW into the next Minecraft Smiley

It is my sincere hope that this game continues.  I have played since 2007 and have some notable memories of events that have happened.  I would love to continue to play.

twisti,

If you have been doing code for so long and have not been paid, does Travis own the code?  It would seem to me that he cant own code he didnt pay for.  You agreeing to help him does not mean he owns your work.  If someone commissions an artist to do a painting but doesn't pay for it like agreed, then the artist still owns the art even if is in another person's home. 

I enjoy TW.  I have been playing as ispep on TW1 since August 2002.  I have been thru Qill and Dragoon and can tell several stories about each of them.  They were never absentee owners.  Maybe for a short time but not like this.

I will agree to whatever you deem necessary.  I would hate to see TW die.  If nothing new happens it will die from attrition.  TW needs new players and if it looks sketchy as to the game's continued existence, new players will not stick around long.

You have more insight into this than anyone else.  I follow where you lead.

I'm for option c).  I just can't stomach the thought of Toadwater going offline for good.
