    Hi all,

    our account is at -zero and given the current situation the world is coming to terms with I completely understand that funds will be much harder to find.

    I deposited another $100 into the account today and I remember a time not so long ago that I said I wouldent be doing that gain but it’s done, nevertheless, this is (most definitely) the last time. 100 Australian dollars is about 65 US so that is going to last less than 6 months.

    Enjoy it while you can!

    Thanks to all for donating?

    It’s hard to account for all the different exchange rates but I think the next payment is due in a month or two, It will be August in about two months so my estimation is pretty close : )

    What is confusing is that our account is in aussie dollars and when I pay in US dollars it’s only about 0.66 US, it’s a bit of a PITA

     

    I’m happy to email more details?

    “….I’m happy to email more details….” Please do.

    I not a great calculator, but I dont really follow your way of calculating.
    The total cost (goal) for 2020 is $ 220, untill now donated $140 + your invisible $65 = $205, which makes 93%.
    12 month x 93% = 11.16 month, so that makes it november for me, unless your calculation has august 2019 as a startingpoint. If so the donatepage is not giving the correct information stating that the total cost for 2020 is $220.

    Giddy-up, It’s time someone else takes the reins.

    This year (the past twelve months) I have deposited some $200 AUD (approximately $125 USD) that more than covers the teamspeak server, web hosting and domain services of about $84 USD p/y.

    • Website hosting account: $52.00 USD p/year + Domain Renewal $22.95 USD.
    • Database server:                 $7.50 USD p/quarter.
    • GRAW2 game servers:      $37.50 USD p/quarter + IP.
    • Teamspeak server:             $10.00 USD p/year.

    (52 + 22.95) + (7.50 x 4 ) + (37.50 x 4) + 10.00 = 264.95 USD = 264.95 USD = 403.81 AUD

    It has become a complicated game keeping track of how to accurately account for the costs, I do not have the time to devote to this task anymore and you all deserve better.

    It’s my guess that this will become more difficult in the coming months as the affects of the pandemic unfold, particularly with respect to the exchange rates.

    OK, no reaction, so here is mine.

    – Last couple of months there were appr. 3 paying members and 7 non-paying members on the Coop and Rahnmans Mod servers.
    – As people move to other interrests, we all get older (I cant play as well as I used to – wrist problems), less fun in playing the same maps all the time, maintainability of the database server, etc.

    Taking this into account, I agree that its time to say goodbye to the GRAW2 era, there is no basis anymore for continuing the servers.

    I don’t mind leaving the system up but as said dealing with people’s money in international dollars is difficult, particularly when scrutinized about the “” donatepage is not giving the correct information””. I’m not sure how that happened but my guess is it as a result of the changing rates, or perhaps I simply didn’t accurately estimate the time frame,  and or amounts.

    Thanks for your work monitoring the system.
