No more Free Server(s)

That's right, you heard it. All moderators are losing their servers.

This includes:

Any game servers currently hosted on the TurkeyFiles server. (ours)

TurkeyFiles is going down.
ET Web space is going down.
TeamSpeak is going down.

Many of those free features that have been offered to ET customers (not counting the moderators servers) run up a bill of $1000 a month in bandwidth costs.

This money can be better spent on upgrading the hardware so the servers can operate to provide better gaming.

So basically, we need to start getting in monthly donations. We will have to drop the server size to 24 (+ 4 private slots) *Seems like a decent size to me.

At $1 a slot, we would require $24 a month.

Presently I am unemployed so it falls to you the members to do your part or go without a server.

There are several ways to donate.

1) Paypal
2) Amazon honor system.

Both only require the use of a Card with a Visa or MasterCard symbol (Credit card or checking card).
Amazon does currency conversion for anyone donating from outside the U.S.A.

For those who are too young to have check cards and credit cards. You can go to your local CVS, Walgreens, etc... and purchase (Visa or Mastercard's) Cash card. Basically it is a credit card you buy. Similar to that of a gift card. Pay with cash and you get the card, from there you can go home and use the cash card with Paypal.

I don't really support giving out my home address. Several people have it, but I am not to keen on receiving tons of mail.

So anywho, that is the current news.

Oh, the machines get shut off on September 30th.


With any luck this will be a short lived inconvenience.

I understand that many in this clan are without the means to donate much money, so I'll start chipping in $5-10 a month. (at least 5, probably no more than 10 :) )

We will be dropping to the 24 slot server (with 4 private slots) so 28 slots all together for a total of $24 a month.
