IMPORTANT-SERVERS & FUTURE-PLEASE READ!

Post by Pileyrei » Wed Apr 18, 2018 11:33 pm

Hi all

The Deck 16 server subscription expired 2 days ago and the Fragball/DM/Food Fight server will expire next month.

To be honest both servers are not used much and this forum isn't exactly busy.

It's not a major problem and I kind of expected it. I worked really hard to try and keep the community from TrufF and MPUK going :cry:

Simply put, I am not able to renew both servers for another year on my own account.
Each server costs $117 (US dollars) for the year.

So what to do?

I think I have a few options.

Option 1:

The server subscriptions expire and thats the end of that.

Option 2:

I renew them both for another 3 months on my own account.

Option 3:

Members help me fund the server(s) --> renew both or just one.
* we would have to work this out.

Option 4:

???

I'm happy to leave the forums up as the hosting is free although I have just renewed the domain name at a cost of £15 for the year.
Unless we have reason to keep the forums up next year I will probably not renew the domain name.

So there you have it. Not nice news but decisions need to be made.
Option 1 will be the answer if there is no feedback within the next few days :(

Thoughts?

Well, as far as this forum goes (next year if limited use here), you and those remaining can always "move in" with us at HUTP, if you wish of course.
(your own section?)
Any members (refugees) from Truff could go there too.

But, maybe things will pick up here by then?!?!? ;)

BTW, I check this forum out virtually every day. :D (just may not always log in)

Thanks Hook.

Let's see what happens.

For now, I suspect it's time to say good bye to the servers.

Happy to help towards funding a server...I still think it is just a matter of time...and nagging. :D

Also, I think that forums are dead ducks.. we need a Facebook Group /Page..

Cheers Heath

To keep both servers up for another year it would be approximately £95 each which is quite steep :?

I've been given an extension by game servers until this Friday the 27th April, after that the Deck 16 server goes bye bye.

Unless anyone else wants to keep them going I'm probably going to leave it for them to close.

Sent you a PM heath.

@all

I need to cancel the deck server this week and the dm/ctf one next month.
Please post if you can contribute towards another year.

Failing that the Deck server shuts down Friday and the other in a few weeks.

Thanks Heath for the offer to assist with renewing the server(s).

Not sure it makes sense now so will cancel the subscription.

The Deck server goes bye bye Friday 27th April and the DM/CTF server a month later.

If I had money I would help you instantly ...that's such a bummer that both server didn't gained traction.
I hope Ferali can bring back some life into this old game with his plans.

I couldn't play the last weeks because some heavy Reallife incidences.

It's fine papercoffee, this is just the way things are for the servers.
We tried to get them busy and start a little community. No harm, no foul.

I'll double check the expiry date of the other server, pretty sure its next month.
