First this DOES deserve it's own topic !!
Next, I'm not even going to look up the definition of the word Pledge because I understand what V Realms is doing.
I hold no allegiance to anyone, I'm just another fan of Pantheon.
This company is trying to give us a true mmo. Their not a mainstream company with shareholders and they have limited cash resources. We shouldn't care about past personal histories, we should only care about the here and now or THIS GAME IS NOT FOR YOU !
This company is up front on what it's doing. They are asking for help in delivering a product for us. They understand the need and demand and they are trying to give us something many of us want.
It takes guts to make an mmo !!!!.......We should all know this by now. The cost is high. For most NO RETURN ON INVESTMENT until the product is delivered. This could take years of no pay unless their is something I don't know. Their is the possibility they are getting some funding from sources that do ask for profit, but you know what ? That's none of our business. But one thing for sure, they need to pay this back, and that's stress.
Does V Realms want to make a living ?....... Sure they do !
Does V Realms want to excel and be rich if that 1% chance of making it happen and things go their way ?..... Sure they do !
Could you imagine the cost ?..... I'm not a programmer or a business man, but one thing I do know. $100 doesn't even give one days pay with health care to any worker at least in the United States.
I'll close with this:
Give freely, and take their LITTLE GIFT because they APPRECIATE what your doing. If not don't do anything !
I don't care if anyone responds to this, I don't care if you agree or not..... I may even bump this to the top a few times, until everyone understands what the pledge is for.
