QuoteSome gm abuse but not a whole lot... it was dealable.
QuoteNow anyone who played cake for a long time knows, that if you talk to marsh and you're not giving him any money, you get muted for hours on end. it's impossible to let him know ANYTHING.
QuoteMarsh is a greedy *insert whatever insulting name you wish to insert here*. All in all, he decided that he didn't want people paying for donors and giving them away. Because when that happens, only one person donates as opposed to two if they can't give their stuff away. I don't recommend donating to cake if you play on that server. As if you forget, and delete your inbox, all of your stuff will be gone forever. Whether you paid for it or it was a gift. A friend of mine lost a pair of 20$ wings he had paid for because he loaned them to a priest for ten minutes in pvp and then went out to get food.
QuoteMy original thought was benefit of the doubt. "Oh, some gm is being a tard and giving out donors to their friends."

In fact their free market is protected by the law of usage. (Might be called something else officially. I'm too lazy to look it up.) Basically, this states that if there is a free source code on the internet - including full video games available for download - you have a right to use that source code for free, provided you AREN'T reselling it/making money off of it. (Patent and licensing laws.)
Quote from: Duncan on Nov 29, 2006, 01:20 AMThen where did eAthena get theirs?
QuoteSomething people don't understand is that servers cost money to run.MesaRO costs, on average, $700 a month to run. Thats not including electric bills, website hosts and Ventrilo hosting.Its true, though, alot of the servers that whore donation items are just being greedy. But some of them actually need that money to run.
