Hello all,

a couple days late on this, but as promised. Anyone who didn't re-establish donations by 1MAR has had their perks removed. Shortly, I will be ensuring all the sponsorships/messages are 100% as well. Below are two charts on how we sit.



So, as you can see we only reached 94% of what we need to maintain our current set of servers. But, below is a breakout of how the servers are funded... Kind of. Goal is currently 100%, but ideally we would be at 110-125% of what we need so that we can give prizes for tournaments, random drawings, etc. But, we still have some reserves from years of doing this. 


I came up with this complex formula about how much, on average, it costs for each of the servers to be ran. Then, I weighted that by the number of donations to that server/level 4 and above/sponsors. I feel this is a fairly accurate representation.Server 3 and 4 in BF4 haven't received any specific donations. Server 3 is not on our dedicated box, so it's going to get chopped at the end of the billing cycle. BFHL received more donations that no. 4 however, it too is not on our dedicated box and thus, costs more. So, if we don't hit the amount we need to maintain the servers again next month. Then it too will be chopped.

Have a good day.

Well, I actually have it setup so all you have to do is a quick update every 1-2 months. The graphs and numbers will automatically updated with a C&P from the donor DB. Then you just have to hand jam the top two tiers.
