Dear all,

Lately I havent been able to visit Vogon very often. Shame.

Yesterday, I saw the console message that servers might go offline on july 2nd.

has it come to that?

please send money for the children of Vogon

We have enjoyed the beauty of it for many years and we have seen it prosper
let us then think not only of ourselves but also of our children
and that there might be a future not only for them, but for the children
of Vogons children and their children as well into the nth generation

please be generous

Dyn ... need to know if it is true that the server will terminate Anarcho NY July 2? Want to make a donation to continue working. But I have a suggestion ... I want to make a donation of $ 100, but I would suggest that whoever made the donation of the highest values were also administrators. I'm the first in haking followed by Pikachu. I have been suggesting that besides you, me and Pikachu also were to administrators. I await your response so I can make a donation.

Well fact is we need some admining at COD4, because even with PB enabled there are some (private) hacks which can be used, until PB updates and bans them. However donating is not license to kick players as you wish, admin is there to help and to ensure cheaters are banned. PB allows power system, which can be used for admin purposes. In case admin power is abused, admin privileges can be removed.

Anyone interested should check this:

Just to be clear. You will not give to the greatest server ever unless you get more. Like DynS time is not enough for you. You need to buy your way into the server admin? Pay the money, then do what it takes to be ADMIN. Not buy your way in.

I'm waiting on payment from a customer right now...if this lady pays me today, I can provide a donation, but not if she doesn't...I'm closing on this house next Friday, and they're watching my account like a hawk.

I had to explain to the stupid lender why I spent $100 at Wal-Mart.

Thanks, it's np. Most probably main server will go offline and we will have Q3 @ UK only, unless people donate more.

Would it be possible to add some sort of "choose the server you wish to support" function on the donation page? That way if most/all of the donations are coming from quake peeps you can know to kill some of the call of duty servers first.

All 4 servers run on the same physical server, that is 2x Q3 and 2x COD4.

UK Q3 server is separate and it can still be online, even if US server shuts down.

Makes sense. So you got any advice on how to break the news to my wife that we have to move to the UK to sustain my lower ping?

Reminder! Dyn works day and night on this stuff. We have almost no donations from COD players. Quake players r doing ok. Remember the more donations we get, the more time and resources Dyn will have to make everything better.

Thanks to everyone who has helped us out!

With your support we can add even more variety and erect new servers.

Dyn said 'erect'. :lol:

no problem Dyn, glad to help. We use the servers enough.

if anyone else wants to give even like $10.00 USD would help if a bunch of people donated.

I know everyone cannot afford to make big donations, but even a couple of bucks would be nice. If you can afford $5, send $5. If you can send more, that is even better. Nothing in life is free, so help out a little. You pay for your internet monthly, so just pretend Vogon is part of that bill and send a little Dyn's way. He works on these servers round the clock, and sometimes he is the only one footing the bill, for YOUR enjoyment. Thank you Dyn.
