I know it wasn't. I was just saying how nice it is that people can donate that much. And saying that no-one knows how much needs to be donated.

You can think of the Donation Meter aspect of CAVCON as starting at 2.0 at the beginning of the month and aiming to reach 3.0 or better by the end of the month. So if $X is donated over the course of one week and the Meter rises by 0.1 then you need 10 x $X over the month to reach CAVCON 3.0 - I believe Flep 1968 was assuming that it needed 30 x $X.

As DLordofTime says, we don't know how much is needed to get to CAVCON 3.0 (we have some estimates in this thread) so we don't a figure for $X - I think Cyan wanted it that way: The idea was that people should donate only what they feel they can comfortably afford, and if someone can't donate some months then they shouldn't feel bad about it. On the other hand if someone has a small lottery win, for example, then they might feel inclined to be a bit more generous that month :)

1) Yes I was assuming it
2) +1 ;-)

Thank you for your nice and kind answers (Mac_Fife and DLordofTime)

I've always dreamed about winning the lottery. I think an awful lot of the money would go to Cyan for support of Moula.

Not to dismiss CAVCON as insignificant, but if I had a million dollars, I can think of a number of charities I would rather donate to... :? Not to mention that CAVCON 0 wouldn't spell the end for Uru anymore, thanks to the efforts of the community and Cyan to make MO:UL open-source.

I'm glad that there are people who don't forget that there's more to life and that there might
be more responsibilities and commitments in life than Uru ... and as you've expressed it so
niceley, we even don't have to worry about Uru anymore ... Thank you Lyrositor and everyone
contributing to this for all needing it ... /cheer ... :D

i'm a misanthrope.... the fact i'm donating money at all would be a miracle.

Something that seems to gone without remark here is that last week's Donation Meter rose to 2.6 from 2.5 the previous week. All things being equal, we should have been hoping for that to be nearer 2.8, on the basis that to get from 2.0 to 3.0 in a month you'd like to see an average weekly increase of ~0.25. So 2.6 is below the ideal line, though nowhere near a disaster.

But of course, it could be that more donations happen around the end of the month, maybe either as salaries come in or perhaps as people see what they've got "spare" at the end of the month. I wonder if coming months will reveal an interesting pattern to this?

And, it looks like we ended up at 2.8 for the month of October.

Not terrible, but could certainly be better.

We also have a typo in the number of player accounts. An extra digit. :roll:
(If only we actually had 900,000+ player accounts! That would be impressive if it were actually true.)

Yeah, I think I'd go with 97818 for now and just assume that a fat, stubby finger caught the 7 by accident :P .

2.8 isn't a disaster but it's not really a sustainable position either, as it means small dip into the reserve is likely to be needed.

I agree that it's a typo, but I do remember yesterday's number before the update that last weeks account number was 98187. I don't want to go all Dr Sheldon Cooper here but I make it a habit of recording all the numbers immediately. :P :D
