View Full Version : Current server contract expires in November!

Since the server we're currently running is going to expire in November I thought I'd see how many people would still be interested in paying for another year. I'm betting there are fewer of you out there. The people who bought our VPS were kind enough to honor the rate that we paid for this year but I don't imagine that will continue, so the server will probably end up being more expensive.

Current share price is $12.17 and falling.

I logged in to see the movie set but couldn't tell you the last time I seriously played before that. Winter might provide me more indoor time to play games, but I doubt it. :(

Gnorlin

Well, there's good/bad news. To get the same server setup we have now will be $199.50 for the year. But since there are likely less people interested we can probably go down to the next best one at $109.50 for the year.

I voted for $20, but I'll pay whatever to keep it going. Write me down for 2 people's worth as my nephew also plays on the server.

Also, to anyone who left and didn't come back after a previous server wipe (Bigtime, Murdoch, etc.), know that with the full game release in November, we're likely going to restart the server one more time, but then stick with this one for a great long time.

And if the starting area has snow, we're resetting it til we get one without that shit.

I may become more interested/make time at the full version launch. I guess I'll kick in a share.

i will kick in a share just let me know what it is.

Just for officialness I am also willing to pitch in.

I am willing as well.

I'll pitch in, because even though I never log in I support the idea of communism (and also I hope to someday make more use of the server myself).

Don't consider me part of the count against the number of concurrent logins supported or whatever, though, obviously. My interest in giving you money should not necessitate going up the pay scale.

I should donate to Reebosak too while I'm in such a paying-money-for-things mood.

Murdoch

I'll pay. The people we're going through won't fuck it up halfway through my grand plans, right?

That's what got me on this Eve kick after all...

Maybe our admin will make a local backup once in a while. :colbert:

+1 for using the word "poppycock", -1 for not using it in a sentence.

I will pictch in as well. I was having a good time until the movie hit so I can see me coming back quite a bit in the future.

Gnorlin
11-11-2011, 05:00 AM
So we've expired. It looks like they're going to offer us the same price ($150 a year) for the same server configuration. At that price and the 9 people including myself that agreed to pay for it, it would be 16.67 a person. I still think we'd be OK with the $110 a year server. What are your opinons? We have until the 18th to decide.

nynnja
11-11-2011, 07:08 AM
What do we give up to save $4?

quirinus
11-11-2011, 08:21 AM
since im back i will be more than glad to pitch in whatever amount is needed, sesko will too.

Gnorlin
11-11-2011, 08:54 AM
What do we give up to save $4?about 500MB of memory, which means we'll be able to have fewer people online at once. Maybe 7-10 players at once vs 12-16 with the current server. Also I might have to shut down the server when I generate maps, but I usually do that when no one is on. I'm doubtful that it will ever be an issue if we go for the cheaper server.

nynnja
11-11-2011, 09:33 AM
Ok, I'll trust your judgement.

Can you get it back up and running this weekend?

Gnorlin
11-11-2011, 10:33 AM
Well if I can get them to give me the downgraded service without deleting all my files I probably can. If not, well, I'll do my best.

I'll PM my paypal account to everyone.

So I need money ($10.95) from these people:

you've got your money bitch, now make my server work!


THANKS GNORLOINS!It should be working now. Unless they later decide to delete my shit because of the downgrade it looks like clear sailing.

minecraft.reebosak.net

I think I set it up with the old world we were using before Machinema hit, I decided not to make us a new world until the official version is released.

You only want $10.95? I would totally have pumped that up. In fact, everyone give me $15 right now.

quirinus

im waiting for my paypal account to be confirmed and you well soon have your money.

For some reason I couldn't bring myself to make it the number you requested. I'm a rebel. :clint:

Well it appears that nobody checks the forums anymore. If you guys can poke the people you know and tell them to pay up that would be great! I sent facebook messages to Drew, Sheil, Murdoch and Fen, but I don't have contact info for Deso.

Well they're fucking me. They said I couldn't downgrade until I paid the $150 for the next year saying that I could get credited for the difference after I downgraded. So I paid it and downgraded and now I have a 42.50 credit which I CANNOT HAVE, it can only apply to another year of service. I asked if I could go back to the $150 priced package but the thing is we were only paying $150 because that's what we signed up for with that shitty old company that they bought out, the actual price for that server is $200 a year. So I really doubt that they're going to go for that. So that's GREAT.

Drewbie
11-14-2011, 07:46 AM
Just sent you money to cover for me and my nephew who still plans to play.

Gnorlin
11-14-2011, 07:54 AM
They unfucked me. Hooray. We're back to the old plan at $152 a year. So it's actually $15.20 for everybody.

Murdoch
11-14-2011, 09:22 AM
Cash sent.

Is there a world online that I can reliably expect won't disappear again?

Might it be possible to access the 'first' or 'second' world?

Gnorlin
11-14-2011, 09:27 AM
The "third" world is available now. I did some work trying to get multiple worlds running at the same time while the Machinema world was going on but I didn't quite get there. It's definitely one of my goals to have the other worlds running, memory permitting of course. The "first" world (generated by brien) is stored on my computer. I'm pretty sure the "second" (with the giant squares and millions of train tracks) is stored on the server. So they do exist, it's just a matter of getting them to play nicely together.

Drewbie
11-14-2011, 10:21 AM
I thought the giant squares were gone forever.

Either way, with all the new stuff since the last server was started, I'm keen to start a new one on Friday either way.

new server! yay!

and now I have to send you another $4.18 ... do you have any idea how much work it was to sign into PayPal?

nynnja
11-14-2011, 03:14 PM
No really, I forgot my password, and now forgot it again. I think I can remember the metric this time.

And it's only worth $4.17.

And if other people see my post and don't really pay attention they'll all send you $4.18 and you'll be shorted $0.57.

Macheath
11-14-2011, 03:50 PM
I sent Gnorlin $9,999.99 to make sure I was covered in this sort of eventuality.

What happened last year was that he just set any additional money aside for the following year's contract.

Gnorlin
11-21-2011, 05:09 AM
Actually I only got a teensy bit extra last year and I used to to buy an MCMyAdmin license.

Next year we'll definitely use the extra to pay for the server.

Equoria
11-21-2011, 03:14 PM
so just send Gnorloin some bling?

is it still at minecraft.reebosak.net?
