    Now, this is a topic I feel very strongly about, and I would hope all of you understand why. Cloudy has been a respected member of the modding community for some time. He joined dan200 doing ComputerCraft development when he made monitor addons, which may be the reason they were added at the time they were, I'm not sure on that. I'll quote dan200: "he's been invaluable to bounce ideas off of and a source of unexpected features ever since." (http://redd.it/1f70zt). I understand that you have no particular reason to believe him on his word, but I personally think he is telling the truth and needs these funds to rescue his daughter.

    The short version is that he needs funds to he can fly to America and participate in court proceedings, ideally leading to his gaining custody over his daughter, who is 3 years old. There have been allegations of "neglect" against his daughter's mother, and some of these allegations involve possible sexual assaults on the daughter, who I reiterate, is THREE years old. I won't say any more here, but if you think this is despicable and would like to donate, Cloudy's blog post is below with a donate link. If you'd like to find out more, that post explains everything in as much detail as it possibly can.


    Edit: In hindsight, this may be better in Chat>General Discussion. If a mod sees fit to move it there, please feel free to do so.

    Dire would anyway, assuming he sees it. Which he probably will. He doesn't follow Cloudy, but I'm almost certain he'll see the retweets :p

    Update, in case anyone hadn't heard. Cloudy is currently in America, participating in court proceedings. It appears he got enough donations/found some money so he could get there.

    That's great, I hope that cloudy can get his daughter back and I think it's horrid that she has been sexually abused and that apparently her mother hasn't done anything about it.
