Just a quick update on how we are doing for payments. So far Grophland users have paid us $685 for accounts. This is over halfway towards the cost of our new dedicated server! However we still have $505 to go ... and Victoria and I can only really afford to put forward $300 of our own to help out, so we really need some more to come in. We only need another 20 or so people to pay and we will do it ....
So if you can, help out Grophland today!

PAID ACCOUNTS NOW AVAILABLE (posted 12:38)
You can now upgrade to a paid account from the payments page (under the explore menu). If you plan to pay for your account then please do so as soon as you can. We need to raise enough money to pay for a dedicated server in the next two weeks or grophland will go offline. Thanks in advance to everyone!
PAYING FOR GROPHLAND!!! (posted 5:19)
Please can all players go to the General forum and read the PAYING FOR GROPHLAND thread. We are having to introduce a yearly fee for all but the most basic accounts, and we need to know who is willing to pay for it. If enough people don't pay Grophland will have to shut down. Please, if you are willing to pay $15 a year for your accounts then go to that thread and let us know. If we get enough people who tell us they are willingto pay then will go ahead with a dedicated server, otherwise we will probably be offline permenantly in a couple of weeks.

Nicknames (posted 5:53)
All nicknames must now start with a letter (not a number or other symbol). All nicknames with other things at the start have been changed, and you should not be able to add non-letters to the start any more.
Rich list change (posted 4:49)
The top ten richest owners now only counts Grophgold in the bank, the way we were doing things before was quite slow.
