Darkwolf (what an interesting given name), maybe you missed what Jim posted here and on the opening page: Modern Tales SHOULD NOT have been shut down for excessive usage,

BTW, Paypal munches money out of all transactions. So, if you really hate anyone getting any of Jim's money, better send him a check.
Oh yeah, I read it. Just refering back to one of the first things I said when Jim first brought up the idea of doing this. I asked if they were getting dedicated servers, and lines, because that's what would be needed to avoid these things. Yes, I see that it's the hosts fault for not placing them on a dedicated server, but that's precisely what I was refering to.
As for the check / paypal thing, yah, I know they take a small percentage out. It's not that big of a deal though. It's certainly not spreading my $2.95 monthly fee among 20+ people... AFTER taking out the server / hosting fees. If I donate $2.95 through PayPal, Jim'll see about $2.00 of it. Maybe a little more. If I sign up for Modern Tales, Jim'll maybe see $0.05 - $0.10 of my $2.95.
I think I'll stick with my plan
Also, I did check out some of the other comics, and so far, the only one I'm interested in is Makeshift. Even Wedlock... I'm a PvP nut, but so far, I'm just not that intrigued by Wedlock. As it is, I haven't seen anything else that MT has to offer that catches my eye.
