... is the game this Wiki refers to.
It is hosted at http://shinobilegends.com
Ann wrote a basic template, changed basic texts but left the whole lotgd structure fully in place, with this setup, the server ran until end of the year.
She took a long absence, which I will not discuss due to respect of her privacy, so Neji took over and worked as backup.
On February 2006, the webspace used was not sufficient anymore and the provider shut the site down for a few days due to high load. This was the first breaking point.
At this time, about 1400 registered users were there... though the setup did not require to put an email address in, which was a *major* security issue, and of course multiple fake accounts were created.
Sycic was the one leading "a group of a few enthusiastics" and offered EUR 20 (amount may differ) to start the whole thing. Neji agreed. The first month there was a second enthusiastic player name Kurisu who donated a larger amount via snail mail and helped over the next month.
After that, the game paid for its costs and was updated to new hardware along the way.
The leftover donations were transferred to her at this point, around $30.
At this point, the discussion for the new domain name was open, which leaded to "shinobilegends.com".
Ann quietly redirected her domain to naruto.elefantenmatrix.de in July 2006 and basically ended the split at that point.
A real root server was rented in August 2006, as the donations from players jumped to $290 in July and we could afford a new and considerably faster server. With now about 3.000 registered users, this was awfully necessary.
A second server was rented shortly after in November to serve as sole database server.
Currently, with different machines the game runs at this configuration.
