Donations are only used for buying computer hardware for Elftown, or stored as a reserve in case something should unexpectedly break down and need replacement.
[Hedda] hosts Elftown for free and there are no administration costs (except the ones from Paypal, which are about 10%). Donations help securing that Elftown and all your content will still be available.
If you're a donor (a least 10 euro), you can use these extra tags in your description in your house:
<red> Makes the text between the start and end tag <green> this colour. As with other tags, you have to <blue> have them in pairs, otherwise all of them stop <white> working. <purple> <yellow> <LBLUE> <DBLUE> <LPURPLE> <DPURPLE> <LGREEN> <DGREEN> <PINK> <DGREY> <ORANGE> <BROWN>
If you have donated 20 euro or more, you will get the limitation on your descriptions removed. It doesn't mean that we'll allow totally hideous presentations, but "double-donors" are allowed to make a little bigger descriptions.
The normal limits are:
maxlines-description:400 (number of newlines)
maxsize-description:20000 (Number of characters in the description)
maximages-description:10 (Number of images, except the tiny images shown on nonimages)
