    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    MAP wants you to donate money. No seriously gives us money

    I open the homepage and I get this weird message.

    Sorry, MAP's server is under too much load to process this request. To help remove this message, consider donating to MAP by using the Paid Subscription link in your User CP.

    They did something weird with some other websites too. A percentage of the stuff you buy goes to MAP.

    Nope it is a common practice. If you click hosted links the website gets a percentage.
    Nothing new.

    It's just because their server gets overloaded with hits sometimes. If they get some money they can get a better server. It used to happen a lot more, but I think they were able to upgrade a bit, but they still see to have the odd problem from time to time.
