Title: Donate for our servers!
Post by: SCGavin on July 10, 2010, 12:43:03 AM
In order to keep the website, forum, domain, TeamSpeak3-server and Warband game-servers running, we need donations.

The cost for all these services together is roughly 50 a month (last updated: 17/02/16). It would be greatly appreciated if you would donate any amount from 1 to 10 to 100 (to 1 Mio. :P) to the PayPal account (the link to this PayPal account can be found on our homepage (http://www.guardofistiniar.org/)).

Current balance, regular payments and discontinued servers as of February 17, 2016 (for the most up-to-date balance, please check the most recent post of this thread):

Current balance
Warband, TeamSpeak, Website

Total of expenses: ~ 3313,50
Total of donations received: ~ 3290,00

The server will have to be paid again soon, so more donations are appreciated!

Post by: SCGavin on November 26, 2010, 09:03:42 AM
The website and server both need payment at the end of this month, so some additional donations of a total worth of around 20 would be helpful!

And thanks for the donations, received both of them!
Title: Re: Donate for our servers!
Post by: SCGavin on November 27, 2010, 11:16:21 PM
I calculated the donations I received and the expenses I spend for servers and website since we started using them:
(I used todays value of the dollar in euros to calculate the donations I received in $, so the numbers are vague)

Donations received: ~343
Expenses spend: ~404

Of those 404 around 200 have been paid be three individuals, while another eight persons donated around 20,00 each (=~160). Another 9 individuals donated between 4 and 15.

If this is continued, we will be able to maintain the servers and website, however it would be good if more members could donate even minor sums. If 40 members donate 15 per three or four months, then we would have around 480 without anyone having to donate sums as large as 50-90.

And a big thanks to all those who donated, especially the odd donation from people who are not even in the clan!

I didn't quite figure out how the donation works, since it doesn't look like the usual PayPal purchasing screen. I will try to figure it out, when I have the time!

Oh, and what confused me also that the currency was US dollars, not euros? What's up with that.

I was succesful now. Although it's weird how the currency is in US dollars for me. I just have to do a bit of thinking to get the right amount in euros.

Thanks for all the donations in the last couple of days! I think the donations for this month broke the record of donated money per month (with $95 donated).

The donations really carry the bulk of the payment for the servers, so a great thanks to all those who donated:

Expenses: 500,00
Donations received: 467,00

The next payment ($40,75) will be due on the 27th of February.

It is however noticeable, that a few donors donate often and much, while others never donated. We had 19 donations from clan-members and two from non-members. Considering how many members we have, 19 donors is certainly not a bad number, but neither is it the number of donors we should have.

Of the 21 donors, 17 donated more then $10 each, sometimes even $50, $60 or $70 each. That means, the expenses are paid through donations of a few, who donated regularly, while others never donate.
I understand, if some of you cannot donate due to problems with bank accounts or Paypal, but if you are able to donate, even donating small amounts would mean that others do not have to donate as much.

Today i was actually thinking about sponsors and it slipped my mind, but now i remembered again. I know that warband isnt really a big gaming market, but seeing as we are now in the top ranks of EU clans, we should consider looking for some opportunities of sponsors. I dont know if the server provider will do anything, but i was thinking more of other companies that may eighter pay the server or offer us something else in exchange for advertising etc.

Just a thought to ponder on. Its always better to have that extra something. Not to mention the IG server gets lots of traffic

Ah sponsors, when I still regularly played soccer, teams of my club would have sponsors (local bakeries etc). These sponsors would usually pay for shirts, balls, soccerbags, etc etc and in the end didn't really have anything to do with what players would play in games or anything like that, which was good.

Thing is, like the local bakery would want their name on our shirts, a sponsor for warband would like want their name and/or logo on our banners... which would likely kinda suck. However if they'd only want their name in our server name (for example IG_Starbucks_Battlegrounds) or some advertisements on our website, I wouldn't mind it so much. Def not if they'd pick up the tab for our servers.

Post by: SCGavin on April 01, 2011, 01:22:38 PM
I was thinking about publishing the nicks of the donors and the amount they donated, so that everyone can know and thank them. However I am not sure if all those who did donate are comfortable with that and I wont publish the donations with their donors unless I have their permission.

Please either write "[Nick] - Publ. ok" or "[Nick] - Publ. not okay" in the field Intention/Purpose of the donation or send me an E-Mail with the address you used to donate with (so I can verify it is you), if you already donated.

Edit: If you are opposed to the idea of publishing donors in general, also feel free to write down your opinion.

The donations really carry the bulk of the payment for the servers, so a great thanks to all those who donated:

Donations received: 710,40

Donations received: 692,00 (the earlier figure from May 30, 2011 was incorrect)

As you see the expenses surpassed the donations. The next payment will be in one month; around 40$. Hence some more donations until the end of August would be appreciated!

What happened? Thought we would come out at around plus/minus 0.

In August I received $55 (38,60) in donations and had to pay $40 (28) for the server, hence 10 were left to fill the previous gap between expenses and donations (28), which is why we now have a gap of 18.

Next month we will have to pay $128 (90 - for both servers; one is paid quarterly, hence the larger sum every three months).
Title: Re: Donate for our servers!
Post by: SCGavin on September 20, 2011, 06:17:26 PM
Donations received: 770
Expected total of expenses by end of this month: 838,60

As you can see we did receive more donations since I last posted, but nonetheless the expected expenses will be quite high at the end of this month, due to one server being paid quarterly. Both payments (for the quarterly paid server and the monthly paid one) will be due at the end of September. Hence some more donations would be appreciated. In the past it often were individuals donating large amounts of money who made sure we had enough money for the server upkeep, so I hope that now more people will donate. We have more then hundred members and if even half of those would donate 1 (around $2), we would have 50. That seems much better than individuals donating 50 all by themselves, although there are of course no problems if individuals donate such amounts. ;)

Chaingun, no there are no taxes on the paypal transfer as far as I can tell. The amount donated correlates to the amount received by Gavin.

What Gavin THEN does with the money is a different matter. . . .  :hmm:

I know Paypal does not add much of an overhead on transactions.

I'm mostly concerned with what Skatteverket may think (or not think).

Within the EU money and people can flow freely, no? Gavin lives in Germany.

Skatteverket have never bothered me so far and I've donated to various servers in different clans/games for years.

Did you donate through a company? (Enskild firma in my case.)

It's quite clear they won't bother a private person who was already taxed to hell. :p

Alright.

Anyway will have to look it up, not too optimistic. Still, if I didn't have to pay ~60% earnings tax+"social/employer" fee for the amount to donate it IG, it would be worth it.   :rolleyes:

The amount donated correlates to the amount received by Gavin.

Unfortunately, no.

Example: One donation I received was $40,00 USD. If you subtract the PayPal fee of -$1,06 USD, the amount I receive is $38,94 USD.

Hm, that fee doesnt show for the donor, only to the recipient? That's both stealthy and a bit nasty by Paypal. I was convinced every penny reached Gavin  O_o

Oh well, the fee is only small potatoes anyway. I guess Paypal needs to make a living too. Important thing is we're covered for now :)

Title: Re: Donate for our servers!
Post by: SCGavin on May 27, 2012, 07:26:28 PM
Thanks for all the donations. Unfortunately we need more. Current figures:

Donations received: 1128,50
Total of expenses: 1157,26

As you see, the total of expenses exceeds the donations received. There will be a new invoice for the servers in the next couple of days of $40,75. For the donations to cover the expenses we would need 61 in donations. More than that for the future invoices would also be appreciated.

So far we had a couple of members donating larger amounts. The above figure of 61 could be donated by one person, put if say twelve members decided to donate 5 each, we'd have the same amount.

Note: Keep in mind that the donations are in $, so if you donate $5 it would be less then 5.

Title: Re: Donate for our servers!

Donation sent. How much are we in need of now?

Donations received: 1216,50
Total of expenses: 1157,26

We received 98 in donations since yesterday (you guys are awesome!). The coming invoice and probably the next one are covered.

There is however a problem I see with the donations:
1 person donated 200 and more in total.
4 people donated 100 and more in total.
4 people donated around 50 in total.
8 people donated between 20 and 30 in total.
9 people donated between 10 and 20 in total.
6 people donated less then 10.

In total, 32 people donated. Of those a couple were never members of IG, but - presumably - players from our server who donated.  As far as I can see, 30 members (including former members) donated.

As we currently have more then 30 members and over the time had more then 100, this means a considerable number of members have not donated at all. Of course there is no requirement to donate, but as you can see the bulk of the donations is made by a few, who - understandably - might not always be inclined to donate. Assuming these members who regularly donate large amounts decide to stop donating, we would have a problem covering the expenses.

So I ask everyone again to think about donating small amounts that would not be financially hurtful to the individual (like 5), but would help pay the servers if many members made them. Just imagine - if 30 people donated 5, we would already have 150, which would cover our expenses for around three months.

Im not sure about the legal process but at least everyone within germany, maybe europe, could have a money transfer order if the bank account would be know to were the money needs to go. paypale is safest for gavin at the moment i assume but if no risks are involved we could post a bank account on our homepage for that propose.

We are looking into aquiring a server for War of the Roses. The donations for that server will be recorded seperately. TeamSpeak and Website are included in the Warband record. If you donate via PayPal, please note in the comment section there what the donation is for.

Also, please donate!

Thank you for the donations! I suggest that you do not donate for the War of the Roses server until next month, in case we are not satisfied with the service and decide to cancel the server. Donations for the Warband server and website/TS are not affected by this and we do need another 20 or so to cover the expenses at the end of next month.

Donated to the WotR server just now.  Didn't see your post below not to donate toward it until after I'd already done so.  If we decide not to go forward with it, just put the money toward something of value to the clan.

 I have to say that the WotR server does not feel like it's actually in GB.  I usually don't have any problems playing on British servers, but I seem to have FPS and lag problems with our server.  Maybe they stuck it in some out-of-the-way place a few jumps from the backbone?  Isle of Man?  I dunno.  Also, if we could alternate between modes of play every so often, that would be awesome, as I enjoy conquest, and it's always on tdm.

Hopefully as long as the WotR server is covered people wont mind their donations being transferred over.  I can only donate through a WotR donation (long story) but I would love to have some it offset against people paying through paypal so some of my donation is used for native (makes sense?)

I believe I did get it (or will, according to PayPal it will take them four to six days to transfer the money...). Thank you!

I would favor one pool for all donations, just the Guard of Istiniar and you Gavin can use it for what ever purpose. Or would that cause trouble?

If donations are handled via PayPal, they will be in one pool. I record them differently, though. This is to keep track of the donations a server received. The more Branches and servers we have, the more confusing it would be without such records. By using the records, I am able to see which servers cost more than we get via donations and thereby see if it might be sensible to discontinue them.

As long as you enter the purpose of your donation in the purpose/comment section on PayPal, I know what you are donating for. If you donate for "Native Servers", I will add the contribution to those records. If you donate for "WotR servers", I will record it seperately and if you write nothing, write "Guard of Istiniar", "does not matter" etc. I will add it to whatever service needs it more at that moment.

Hopefully as long as the WotR server is covered people wont mind their donations being transferred over.  I can only donate through a WotR donation (long story) but I would love to have some it offset against people paying through paypal so some of my donation is used for native (makes sense?)

That is no problem. I received some PayPal donations without expressive prupose for WotR that I will count toward that record and in turn count the equal amount of your contribution towards the Native Server.

1 We planned to pay the next installment quarterly, in which case the price now would have been higher, but in total would have been cheaper. However there was no option to change this in Multiplay and they withdrew the money for the next month before answering my support ticket requesting them to change the renewal period. Also, the money that is given in the 'Balance' section was donated via ClanPay, i.e. I cannot pay the abovementioned Website-invoice with it, as that needs to be paid via PayPal. Hence PayPal donations for this woul still be appreciated.

Post by: SCGavin on November 30, 2012, 03:23:16 PM
Can you split up the costs of TS + Website, Warband and War of the Roses servers separately next time, please.

Not quite. The costs for TS, Website and Warband have so far been recorded as one, as I paid them all via PayPal and as we only had the Warband servers. Also we have TS via JestServers, so pay it together with the Warband servers. I could split TS/Warband servers and Website, but I do not know which past donations were intended solely for the Website for example, so I cannot give an accurate account of the donations contributed to that service.

Why do you think this seperation is important?
Title: Re: Donate for our servers!
Post by: Carl on November 30, 2012, 03:35:15 PM
Well, its not important. Just when i would only donate for the WotR server i couldn't pay for TS and website, right? For that matter it should/could encourage WotR donators to sent money for our TS and website as well, if listed separately. How you pay the bills in the end is totally irrelevant for me. For example i donate for Guard of Istiniar and don't care were the money goes to as long as its for the mentioned services.
Title: Re: Donate for our servers!
Post by: SCGavin on November 30, 2012, 03:50:46 PM
Well, you could donate 10 and write in the purpose/comment field "5 for WotR and 5 for Website/TS", then I would record it accordingly. I might use the entire 10 to pay for WotR, though, if that is the next invoice that needs to be paid. I record the two services/purposes differently, but I use one account for the donations and payments, so if a payment is required, I pay it with what is there.

Also, thanks for the donations. We're all clear now.

Neither. They are the total expenses/donations accumulated since the respective services were started, e.g. in the case of Warband/TS since March 2010.

The monthly expenses for all services are roughly 100 a month at the moment, although the services are not all paid every month, but sometimes quarterly and bi-anually.

They are all hosted by the same people.  That does not stop WotR members donating to TS and website.  All anyone needs to do is donate via paypal to the usual link.  I would like to point out that every person donating a small amount is much preferred.
Title: Re: Donate for our servers!

Never understood why website and ts is only calculated into the warband expenses: O ?

Warband and TS are provided by the same hoster, the website/forum by a different one (vidahost.co.uk).

I had however recorded the donations and expenses in the same file until we formed the WotR Branch. After that I recorded the donations and expenses for Warband and WotR seperately. This is to keep track of the donations a server received. The more Branches and servers we have, the more confusing it would be without such records. By using the records, I am able to see which servers cost more than we get via donations and thereby see if it might be sensible to discontinue them.

However the record for the Warband and TS donation also includes the website donations and it would be to complicated to retrospectively record the website differently. Hence, Warband, TS and the Website are recorded as one.

Also: As long as you enter the purpose of your donation in the purpose/comment section on PayPal, I know what you are donating for. If you donate for "Native Servers", I will add the contribution to those records. If you donate for "WotR servers", I will record it seperately and if you write nothing, write "Guard of Istiniar", "does not matter" etc. I will add it to whatever service needs it more at that moment. If you donate 20 and write "10 to TS and 10 to WotR", I will record a 10 donation for the Warband, TS, Website block and a 10 donation for the WotR server.

We are set for the next payment (by the end of June). The payment after that will be at the end of September, so we do not need donations for the WotR server for a while. Donations for TeamSpeak, website and forum (recorded in the first section) are always appreciated however. If you donate for that purpose, please make sure to do it via PayPal, though. Donations via ClanPay can only be used for Multiplay servers and we currently only have the WotR one and do not plan on getting any others.

Considering that the Wotr branch is now quite larger than warband native, it would make sense to either divide teamspeak and website costs into it's own category or split between the two. Because let's face it, Warband players donate for warband and wotr players donate for wotr and neither donates for general maintainance!

By " for War of the roses branch" I mean ts and general maintenance too... You use the donations the way you want of course ;) I just wanted only to precise that's from a player of wotr   :thumbup:

WotR members already donate for TS and the like. If they write something like "for WotR use of TS / website" I'll record it in the Warband/TS/Website section. Donations from Warband members are also assumed to be at least partially for TS/website. I'll consider making a new category for Warband/TS, depending on the comments the donors write in donations: if you donate for TS, write that down; if you donate 5 for Native and 5 for TS, write that down. At the moment most donations say "Guard of Istiniar", so I can't clearly see what service it is for. I can usually deduce if it is from a Warband or WotR member, but I can't find out what purpose it is meant for unless that is stated.

Thank you!

If it doesn't say which Branch it is for, I use it for the one that needs it most / soonest. So if the Native servers, website and TS need to be paid and the balance is negative, it will go towards Native, whereas it would go towards WotR if that needed to be paid and had a negative balance. We are currently covered in Native for at least two months, same goes for WotR. I can record it for a Branch of your choice now or I can wait and record it later for the Branch that needs it most. By the the end of December, we could use it for both Branches.

We will be adding the game War of the Vikings to our Roses server (Multiplay has this option for an additional fee of 15 GBP; much cheaper then renting a second server). This will likely happen once the game is released on 15 April - hopefully then the servers will become available. The expenses and donations of this service will be recorded in the section that previously had the record just for Roses.

We will need donations for Warband/TS/Website (34,00) within the next week. I already recorded 10 that where contributed without preferences as to where it should go by a member affiliated to Vikings towards the website/TS cost and while there is surplus from the Roses/Vikings server, I am reluctant to use that for Warband/TS/Website. After this months payment the surplus of Roses/Vikings will only be 60, so roughly half of what the payment for that server at the end of June will cost.

We had a great number of donations, especially from the new branch. This means the Roses/Vikings server is set for now.

Thanks for all the donations so far!

We lowered the slots of our Roses/Vikings server to 26, as it wasn't full most of the times and the price per slot was quiet expensive. It has been paid for the next three months. The donor who last contributed was fine with using the difference for TS/website.

Even so, we still need 44,50 for Warband, TeamSpeak, Website within the next couple of days.

Due to the falling Euro, the server got effectively somewhat more expensive (We pay $46,75 USD each month, which this month was 3 more than last month - this months payment being 42,55). Assuming the price will be around 42,50 next month as well, we will need another 28 until the end of February to pay the server.

Due to the falling Euro, the server got effectively somewhat more expensive (We pay $46,75 USD each month, which this month was 44,60). Assuming the price will be around 45,00 next month, we will need another 15 until the end of April to pay the server.

Also we decided to discontinue our War of the Roses/Vikings server. Thanks to everyone who donated during its existence! Since we first got it we raised 915,50 in donations to pay for it. That's a respectable amount!

Quick as always :)

My main concern was the the War of Roses but now it's clear that the funding stopped there just as the description of the Branches mentions.

I don't own a paypal, I would like to donate to a bank account.

I suggest maybe passing it through a PM or through steam or adding it in OP :)

We negotiated a sponsorship deal with JestServers, so our monthly fee is now reduced (from $46.75 USD to $34.35 USD). That means the amount of required donations is also reduced, but we still need 57,50 until the end of February.

Even more good news! ReneKB offered to host our TeamSpeak server for free and we decided to accept that offer. That means our monthly fee for JestServers is now $17,60 (or around 16,10).

With all these changes we could now reduce the donations we need to 42,50 (within the next few days; the sooner the better).

Just made a quick check in server hosting and I found out that SimRai is doing 50 slots for 5 euro.
While JestServer's cheapest option is 6 months(semi-anual) for 4.68USD a slot. So 50(slots)*4.68USD/6(months) = 39USD or 34.22euro.
That's with being on a 6 month deal instead of monthly and you still pay 4.22 euro more...

Questions:

On a sidenote, I want to mention that SimRai has better locations for hosting too.

That's with being on a 6 month deal instead of monthly and you still pay 4.22 euro more...

Questions:
  • Why pay more money?
  • Why not take SimRay(or many other cheaper options but requiring more manual configuration)?
  • How does the 17.6USD/month add up in this? I count 39/6(months) = 6.5USD a month.

On a sidenote, I want to mention that SimRai has better locations for hosting too.

Hi volcom and thanks for caring about the server and making a search for other options!

We considered SimRay, as they are indeed cheaper. We host our training server with them and while our experience there is decent, the servers at JestServers are better quality (in our experience). According to the maxim "Never mess with a working system" we decided to stick with Jest, because we want to maintain the quality and reliability of IG_Battlegrounds. Thanks to our recent agreement with Jest we now pay less than we did before, so while it still is more expensive than SimRay would be, it's cheaper then it was before. JestServers 50 slots paid semi-anually would be $39 per month, not $6.5. It seems you divided it by six twice. We pay $17.6 per month as part of a special deal with JestServers, so more than 50% less than the monthly price would be if paid semi-anually.

In short the answer to why we are prepared to pay more money and stay with Jest is the excellent quality and service we've had there in the last six years, coupled with the importance that a smoothly and reliably operating IG_Battlegrounds has for our clan.

The donations and payments for the Warband server "IG_Battlegrounds" are no longer handled via the IG system, anyone wanting to donate should contact Aeronwen for details. Please also do not donate to our PayPal account if you want to contribute to the server costs.

The remaining costs we will have to pay in the future are for our website/forum and our domain. The next time we will get billed will be at the end of the year, it should be around 25.

Our current balance is - 35,73 and by the date of our next payment on 15 June 2017 it will be around - 78,73. I hope that some people will continue donating, as otherwise in the long run it will not be feasible to keep the domain, website and forum.
