Hello everyone
I have heard that some of you are so kind to spread negative rumours about me spending the donations (which are dedicated to hive) on marshmellows, pornography and other junk.
I would like to tell you that most of the money are spent for the servers themselves since they at the moment cost 150$ per month. If there are not enough money to cover them, I will pay from my own pocket, but if there are money left, they will be saved for the next month.

All money will be spent on improving hive and it will continue to be like that.
I spend ~4 hours per day and have done it the last three years. What have I earned? Even if I did put those money in my own pocket it would be like 1 cent per hour in pay. I am not here to get your money, I am here to do the right thing. Your appreciation is my pay.

I can not believe people are making this rumors about 'Ralle spends his money on ....'.

In my eyes these people are retarded, sick, and are having a big lack of respect for others.


This is my opinion, and I will not lie about it.

Ralle is a good person who fixed up the whole site, the sections, etc .. JUST EVERYTHING!
I saw and heard what bills he had to make.

BULLSHIT that he uses the donations for other things.

I'd suggest people saying other things about it to get lost, and to never return.


The donations are really needed for The Hive Workshop.
Without these donation, the website already was brought down by a lack of money,
OR it would be hosted on a sucky server.

Really, I do support Rasmus and I trust him in all his moves.

You can follow me in my opinion,
or just leave it.

It is a choice you decide by yourself,
but that doesn't mean you need to start creating these fake things around Ralle.

Correct in every way, because the servers are up and running, how could he have wasted the money on other shit? Oh my god retards, if you dont like Ralle or the hive for some reason, go drown yourself.

QFT.

Ralle's Brought this site so far, It's sad that people are actually that...... foolish... as to think Ralle would squander donations. Although Marshmellows are awesome, I'm sure Ralle can resist the temptation.
 
Hell, Ralle is providing us an excellent base for our needs and place to stay and have a good time. And what some people to in return ? They tell that Ralle is using the money for his own, behaving like total fags in section (yes, you know what I mean) and just come here to just shit on people and grade down the whole page.
This IS madness which has to stop now. Either we can continue futher on that and just tighten the rules and restrictions or we can redesign the kind of how the thing go on here immensely.

Maybe you got this too serious? I know this site means a lot to you, it means a lot to me too, but it was just a joke, nobody really tought you're buying marshmellows, i mean, the hive still works. It was kinda funny, dough...

My thoughts exactly, except for the funny part.
Don't get yourself worked up over some kid whose been crackin' around.
Trust me, webmaster dude, it's not worth it.

I'm off to the pub.

Quoted for truth. Anyone who would honestly use a website then spread nasty rumors about the maker of it should get a penalty of worse that -25 rep. Kaitech[SanD] You got really lucky...

I think this is a big scam so he amass the largest amount of marshmellows in the world and melt them down into a giant sludge which he will accidently drown in and then turn into the MARSHMELLOW MAN!!!

Wait... what?

If there's anyone who a problem with Ralle, you contact me! Shut the f*ck up and show the man some GOD DAMN appreciation! Otheriwise I'll track you down and rib your f*cking guts out! Ralle have way more important things to do than to concern himself of what others might think of him. And because Ralle is such a great guy he takes things like this more seriously, cause he would never do that. So when some screwed up joke about him spending the surplus on he's own crack comes to he's attention, no wonder why he feels like he have to clarify a few things. I can assure you, that every donation goes strictly to benefit the HiveWorkshop, not it's webmaster.

And Ralle knows perfectly well, that if he ever did do that. I would track he's motherf*cking ass down, cause I know where he lives :razz:
And because I'm about to contribute with a rather large donation which is reserved for the Hive and the Hive only.

Archian, it was a joke that started when people have been discussing colours in chartroom, nothing serious at all, look at the chat log if you don't believe me. We were joking about how ralle leeches donors, while those get COLORZ in return xD
Do I sound like I actually give a shit whether if it was a joke or not?
So I see you were one of them, hehe :p

Now to find the rest...

Muahahahahahahaha
