Why doesnt MM have a donation section for people to help pay with internet fees or support the translaters?
Its wierd coz a lot of other sites have them.

This question has been asked and answered before. mirror moon does not and will never accept donations due to many reasons, the most simple one being legal issues. If you want to show your support to us, buy the games we translate. If you already have them, buy them again and give them to a friend. And so on and so forth.

lol, F/HA is not a mirror moon project you know? it's been done by beast's lair. but.. well, maybe, just maybe (since i'm not sure), the people working on it is also affiliated to mm, this 2 community deal with basically similar thing after all.

And you said you bought MBAC, and going to buy F/HA.. have you played F/SN yet? i guess you know already, but just in case F/HA is a sequel/spinoff from F/SN

@mod: if there's no further possible discussion from this thread, shouldn't this be locked?

I don't think it matters whether mm is translating F/HA or not. Buying the game means supporting TM, which means that TM is profiting. No point buying the old Tsukihime which isn't in production anymore for $9000+ (I mean as in 'buying it to contribute to mm'), because the money won't be supporting TM, it will be giving the money to the person that bought the game for $50-$90 in the first place, so TM doesn't make any profit from it. More people buying the TM games still in production means more budget in their next game which means more goodies for us to be released!

At least that's what I believe Message is trying to tell us to do to support them: Buy TM games to profit them. Tell me if I'm wrong though/if mm wants us to support them by buying the game THEY translate.

@lolipedofin: I think locking threads is only necessary if the thread goes out of topic. Otherwise, it'll die off by itself over time.

@Fate4life: If you ever have a F/HA you're going to give to a friend, I'm ALWAYS your friend ^ ^

If i gave fate stay night or hollow ataraxia to a friend they would probably react like

Well, that's to us, to the main bulk of the people who don't know too much about visual novels or even video games, the fact that it contains "porno stuff" is what stands out most.

Basically, this.

If I tell them I like to read, they go all like: 'LOL, DIE YOU HENTAI FREAK'

That's why you always introduce the anime for Fate so they'll be interested in the game. Also, tell them about a non-ero version of the installer for Tsukihime. That way they don't fell as bad to play it of course.

A friend has watched both Shingetsutan and Fate/Stay. When I told him about the games he was interested, but when I mentioned they had sex-scenes there was only a big "NO" as answer after I asked if he was still interested. That was pretty odd, since he has watched ecchi stuff from what I know...

... Anyway... isn't this getting off-topic?

^ Abcess is right. So lets get back on topic.

If there would be a donation section in this forum, what would the staff members do with the money?

I mean...even if we donate something they couldn't make a life out of it and to use the money to buy more games to translate is...a pretty stupid idea.

I know there is no Ds in this forum but I still want to know.

Well if there was a donations page. The only thing I can think of is to help with the maintainence of the site here. Or to add some more things to it or something around that order.

Well, I suppose the costs of maintaing a site with considerable traffic are high. If there was a donation site I'm sure most, if not all, of the donated cash would end up being used in it's maintenance.
