Honestly i don't think that number will be hard to hit. That's $4 from 100 ppl. I think we can come up with that many. Not to mention I'll put in $20.

Once the details are nailed down you might want to start a new thread, "Accepting Donations for Cyan Pizza Party" or something like that. If you place the announcement in this thread I might miss it.

Plus once the money starts rolling in you might need to look into Cakes and what their favorite beer is :lol:

Excellent Jubie, thank you so much! That shouldn't be a hard goal to hit at all!

And they're hiring more staff eh? Hmmmm I can't imagine why they'd hire more staff if they weren't gearing up for Season 2! :D Excellent news!

Tofer, great thank you! Now that we have a paypal account available, lets post that "donations available" thread Sudre suggested. Could you either send me your paypal link info or you can start the thread yourself if you want. :)

Not entirely on topic, but:

There should be somewhere around 58 people to feed (they are increasing the staff again...)

What fantastic news! That's a pretty considerable number. How many did they have on staff for Riven? Whatever the case, this bodes very well for Season 2.

As for the pizza, I may just mail a check directly to Cyan's business address, with a note enclosed mentioning that it's to be used toward pizza. I haven't fiddled with PayPal for a long time, and the nuances have escaped me.

Thanks, this is a great idea!

Same deal for me with Paypal. I don't think my account is even valid anymore. Mowog, can you let me know what you find out about Cyan's address? I hear volunteers for sending checks to, but I'd feel more comfy just sending my check to Cyan directly, if that works for them.

Just so everyone is on the same page. We are currently expanding our QA lab for 3rd party work.

TG, the unstated inference, I believe, is to keep your expectations reasonable and not jump to conclusions because the increased staff is not for Uru Live development or support.

So THAT'S how we do it! Posting questions and speculation about handling user made ages does nothing..
But promise pizza, and GD confirms that indeed they're getting QA staff for said ages! :D


But I think if we run over, like happened the last pizza party, they can put the extra to good use, like caffination. Pizza and coffee.. who can argue?

But is there a good address to send a bit of cash to? With exchange rate still near par it's a good time for money orders, and I don't have paypal (as the credit card is cancelled I can never use Paypal again unless they changed it)

expanding their QA department for 3rd party work means 1 of 2 things.

1: They are expanding to gain more revenue for building ages

2: They are expanding to QA our user created ages.

Or it means they are doing 3rd party work to gain more revenue for Cyan, and it has nothing to do with Uru at all. :) Just saying we shouldn't draw conclusions, though I'm always happy to see Cyan busy.
