• Welcome to MCME!

    Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community that recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. Everyone can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more.

Viewing Donation Drive: Contribute towards our Community Costs

Running Minecraft Middle Earth has a few fixed costs:
  • Server hosting costs
  • Software licenses
  • Addons (website, Minecraft, ...)
  • Domain services
  • Exceptional expenses


Server hosting costs
We are renting capacity at a datacenter at Hetzner to run the Minecraft servers and hosting the websites, which require a high-speed and reliable internet connection and hardware. These are generally fixed at a certain price, no matter how much we use the server. Exceptionally, there may be extra costs when there are hardware failures or we need to request a remote session to debug the problems.

Software licenses
The forum software license that needs periodic renewal is Xenforo. We self-host our Xenforo installation on a server/VPN at Hetzner, keeping costs lower.

Addons
Some addons that we use are paid-for. Addons are usually a one time (larger) purchase, followed by paid extensions for updates and support (which are usually cheaper).
Examples of addons are:
  • Xenforo Forum styles
  • Xenforo Addons (example: Donation system on our website)
  • Premium Minecraft plugins
  • Renewal plans for addons/plugins

Exceptional expenses
Are expenses that are rather exceptional in nature. Though rare, it happens that I sometimes have to ask a technician or another expert to intervene, and this falls outside the scope of the renting agreement.



As Minecraft Middle Earth does not generate revenue or make profit, the entire cost of running this community is split between the monthly contributors, our Patreons and q220.
