    Important Decisions

    Guys,

    We don't typically reach out on these matters much (because it's just not what we're about) but we need to push for more people to step up this month (within these next few days) with donations if we'd like to keep our BF3 servers running.

    Here's a snap shot of what we look like right now:

    Current monthly expenses: $503.93
    Current monthly subs after Paypal fees: $243.85
    Donations needed from non-subs: $260.08

    Here's a shot of how things have declined over the past four months:

    July '12: short $92.57, August '12 - short $44.72, Sept '12 - short $124.60, and Oct 12' short $168.67.

    I personally take a lot of the blame for this decline in donations because iO just simply hasn't done much to motivate our people to continue donating and to continue making the blood pump through the veins and heart of our unbelievable community.

    What we're asking is that, if you were impacted by our community in any way, or play on our servers or see any positive in our mission here; step up and subscribe to a 5$, monthly donation to keep our community thriving and allow us to keep our BF3 servers up and running.

    We recognize that this world's economy is going through some terribly difficult times, so any thing that can be done is very appreciated.

    Also, would like to say a huge thank you to those that have continued to support iO every single month since the beginning. Thank you to all those that have donated in the past. If your name is on this list: Donor Archive - iO Gaming - Thank you, thank you.

    To become a subscriber use the following link: Donate - iO Gaming
    Thank you to those who answer this call!

    ----

    On a positive note, we'll be starting to pick things up here again soon on the administrative side and put iO back on the map.More to come on this soon.

    Thanks for hanging in there with us guys. Hope all is well!

    Best,
    Nick

    Re: Important Decisions

    Wouldn't eliminating the L4D/2 servers cut down on operating costs?

    no, they are rolled into the tf2 servers, no cost to run them beyond the server costs.

    feel free to correct me if that is no longer the case as i no longer run anything serverside.

    I'd love to help out, but I simply can't afford to do so at this time. Is there anything you need help with that doesn't involve money?
