As you may remember, in the past we sometimes did donation drives to raise funds for keeping Mapcore online. Although this hasn't been done for some time because some costs have reduced due to reduced traffic, others such as the forum license have started to become quite expensive, and I have a child nowadays so putting my spare money into Mapcore isn't quite as trivial as it used to be!
I have created a Patreon page that allows you to donate a monthly contribution if you wish to do so. This will include a little recognition on the site (Soon!), and will genuinely make a difference to paying the monthly and annual bills. It will also ideally build up a bit of a war chest that will not just keep the site paid for well in advance, but perhaps even be used to power new content that could bring renewed interest to the site.
If you'd like to donate, check out the Patreon page.
It's not lost on me that the Mapcore forum isn't as bustling as it used to be, but there's a rich history here that I think is important to preserve while any of us are still around to enjoy it, and I'd love Mapcore to always be here so past and current members can pop in to catch up. We also of course have our Discord community where the spirit of our old IRC channel lives on, and if we can do anything else to bring level designers together we are up for trying. That has always been the point of Mapcore, really.
