CO's Server Donation Challenge

Post by Captain_Obvious » Sat Jan 13, 2007 2:12 am

CO's Server Donation Challenge

I want to thank everyone who has donated so far, making the {qoou} server possible. As you know, it only takes a dollar a day (collectively) to keep the server online. That means that if you donate $7, you're keeping the server online for an entire week, and providing hours of fun for yourself and others who play the server. That costs less than a movie ticket, and provides assloads more fun for yourself and others. :thumbup2:



CO's January Server Promo:

If you donate $10 or more to the server in the month of January, I'll chip in an extra $5. So your $10 donation would essentially mean 15 days of uptime for everyone. (limit one $5 bonus per person)

Here's how it works:
1) Let's say De_Fault is feeling generous, so he donates $10 to the server. CO chips in $5, effectively turning De_Fault's donation into $15. Suddenly, everyone thinks De_Fault is swell. ;)

2) Sonya is feeling extra generous, so she donates $20. CO chips in $5, effectively turning Sonya's donation into $25. The $5 bonus was a little smaller percentage wise, but now everyone loves Sonya more because she donated more. ;)

3) RedSlayer enjoys playing on the server, so he chips in $9. ----- OMG REDSLAYER! You should have chipped in one dollar more so that CO could have added an extra $5 to that!!! Thanks for the donation though. :D

Obviously not everyone has the cash to donate. We understand that, and still appreciate you helping to fill up the server. If you do have a few bucks though, it helps us all out a lot. For your convenience, I've posted a link below. You'll notice that your payment goes directly to our server management company, so you know that we're not going to run off with your money and spend it on beer. ;)

--> Donate Here <--

Looks like I owe $10. :shock:

Thanks guys. :thumbup2:

Also, I'll be posting the results of the challenge at the end of the month, so if you'd like to keep your donation anonymous, please drop me a quick PM.

Just passed $25 ClanServer's way... $25 + $5 = one month of UT goodness.

Quit changing my settings!
We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like “I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive…” And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas. And a voice was screaming: “Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?”

Thanks all. Last month we raised $100.61 from 5 donators, and kept the server online for a few more months. :thumbup2:

I'm going see if I can come up with some other things to help reward donators for their contributions in the coming months. And if we're feeling really crazy, I'd love to try and take on a 2k7 (sorry, UT3) server. :D

Had fun on the server last night, so just donated another month's worth of uptime... gg all.

CO, let me know when you get to the 2k7 planning... I'm psyched for the game and would love to see a qoou server.

Thanks Phantom :D

I figure once they finally get around to releasing a demo for 2k7, we can all test it out and decide if it's worth it.

After that we can decide what gametype(s) to support. Right now Unreal Warfare (conquest) sounds sweet, and should be the closest thing to assault... but we'll see. :P

I'll donate more later. For some reason I have trouble getting myself to donate more than $10 at a time. (probably because I'm cheap ;))
