What is $5/month you ask? Its a pack of smokes for those of you who do. Its less than a month subscription to your porn site! It's cutting out a cup of coffee once a day per week a month! Its less than a large popcorn at the movies! Hell, its less than a movie ticket.

Don't smoke, don't pay for watch porn, don't go to the movies already and I drink coffee for a damn reason.

Luckily the state finances me in euros for education, to study good I need some relaxation, so FA has just $10 more to spend.



@*Sypher*: Since you're Dutch, if you are prepared to send the money to me, I will send it you FA. Don't know if it is possible to get it under your name then (anyone?).

I've sent money to one of the members and I think you can put in the name of the person donating it or what not is what he did.

In that case,


Dutch people (Alexandra & *sypher* so far), if you trust me enough and you really want to donate (and not use it as some lame excuse :P), PM me for my bank details. When I've received the money, I'll transfer it asap to FA

Some curiosity, in the donation tab on the forum it said "Currently raised ~10%". From which day did you start counting? Bad example, if you started counting from yesterday, it would be different than if you started counting 350 days ago...

Thanks to those who have pitched in, but we still need some help guys. I understand a lot of you are students, or strapped financially. How about putting it this way...how much did you spend on games and new parts for your rig last month? Why not take a portion of that and help pay for the servers you love! Remember, F|A is NOT a membership required clan; we don't require you to pay us!

But keep in mind, we also pay a good chunk of change for all our servers. And we have the servers we do because of generous donors! F|A WANTS to have servers for different games. We don't all play JUST ET, or JUST COD4. But its hard for us to also host a CS:S server if no one is will to pitch in. And its hard to keep running our current list if people don't help out!

Donation tab was added last year in nov or dec 2010.. It's based on yearly budget of our current servers.

450 just doesn't even cover our 3 months. Donation and no support was one of many reasons we had shut down BF2 and BC2 servers. I can show you many and many communities running membership based on donation and they are even there after 5-10 years. We have never ever thought about making membership donation based and would never like to do so but sometimes we ask to ourself, players will buy new rigs to play new games i.e. BC2, Black ops, etc. but then when time for donation comes they either say I am student, I don't have money etc. Around more then 50 players told me they will donate next month but well my friend that next month never comes.

Players will have money to buy new game worth of 50$ every year but they will have no money to donate 15$.

Some players think oh clan is now asking for donations. Then I ask to myself, they don't see admins provided servers to them for free for enjoyment for 2 years and helped them in there issues.

After Milli posted only 4-7 players donated and that comes to total of 90$. Hundreds of players visit our forums on regular basis. If at least each one would donate 15$, we could get 1000$ but again question is why to donate when every 2-3 years new admins start providing servers for free?

They will renew there WoW subscriptions, xbox live subscriptions, buy new games, build new rigs, etc but when time to donate comes they will be lost in space.

Since topic is posted, few people will come forward and donate and next month it would be as it is. 98% clan decides to close there servers/forums because of no funds after 2-3 years.

http://www.gameserve...00_tickrate.php

32 CSS server - 50$ price ...that's just 100 tick rate.. check the prices for other ones.

Check the price of forums..that's just one time + renewal fees are different..

There goes forum hosting.

Thank you very much for donations.

That is main the problem with donations, people don't feel obligated to donate, since it is "free". Too many people unfortunately don't understand that almost nothing is free. However, for WoW/Xbox subscriptions, people understand that it is not free, since there is a price tag on it. I agree that FA shouldn't ask membership money (read: I wouldn't have applied then), but for many it isn't clear that servers aren't given for free to FA either.


Second, for enough people $15 is significant. When I was 16, I couldn't spend that money either easily. I don't think that has changed over the years.


Third, I usually don't donate since I never know when, these topics always kicks me to do something again. Yes, these topics works (although, monthly would be getting annoying :P). Last time I saw a donation request I've said "next month maybe", but I literally forgot. Anyway, donated some more to have an awesome +. However, that doesn't seems to be added to the donation tab?
