SERVER SUPPORT -- VERY IMPORTANT!

Postby dyn » Tue Aug 07, 2012 09:11 UTC

Some donated, but due to extra expenses and other problems we need to pay extra. I NEVER ask for donations unless it's really critical. Server was due on Aug 4th, and they will "pull the plug" on Aug 8th, 2012, that's tomorrow, in just 24 hours from now! If you are going to donate now it's the time, i mean cash, we don't need donation of excuses.

If servers go offline tomorrow then this is it, no more vogonhq.com, no more VOGON Q3, no more ARES COD4, no more admins, no more TM -- everything gone! Yes forum is using different hosting, and it is covered for a few weeks more, but there is no point having forum up for non-existent servers.

You can donate using this link:
https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=190531

Paypal takes processing fee, so if you donate very small amounts we get basically nothing.

May I humbly suggest putting a similar message (I'm sure this is possible) up on join-game on COD? And Q3 for that matter? A lot of players don't come to this forum until there is some sort of problem so won't be aware of this issue.

I just donated $50.00 to the pot Paypal. I've been trying to encourage others in-game (COD4 Team DEATH MATCH) to do something similar. I hope we can pull it out of the fire. Thanks folks.

Thanks man! It is hard to get people to donate these days, hope more of them do it so server can stay online uninterrupted.

Confirmation number for my donation is 39C21267LX659934L. I'm chasing other players but it's pulling teeth.

I, too, have donated.

How much more is needed? It seems that you should have raised enough by now.

Thanks! :) It should be OK for now, and it would be great if some more donate so we have it covered for longer than one month at time.

Yea, makes sense. US Q3 should be up in 1-2 days. It's about time we fix this. :)

Thanks for putting this back up!!!

Check now, it should be fixed. :)

If you plan to donate, now it's the perfect time, because some people who promised to donate didn't do anything so far.

I have been playing Ares FFA chaos crk, but I was banned or something, cant connect anymore. I bought this game 2 months ago and Ive never cheated. I dont even know how to do it. In some maps I spawncamp like most players do in Freeforall, but in many other maps I dont.

This is the only server I like. I would be willing to support the server with few dollars to get back in and to stay there ;-)
My username there is CaptainTomas. I think this is my IP 192,168,2,101 - You see Im no computer expert ;-)

Should be sorted out now. :)

IPs starting with 192.168.* are not used outside local network, that is internal one assigned by DHCP/router. If you want to see your public IP check http://www.whatismyip.com/ or similar sites. Private ranges are 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255, 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 and 10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255, they are subset of reserved IP ranges. More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reserved_IP_addresses.

It's gone, unless we get ~$140 USD and then at least $100 USD each month in donations. Servers may be back without donations in a few months, but i am not promising anything.

It's not expensive if everyone chips in. If everyone who used the COD servers would donate ONE DOLLAR a month there would be no problem and we could add loads more stuff too.
