Come people, we're over 60 days straight uptime. I expected by now, from all the enthusiasm when the server needed to be rebuilt, that we'd have a better average and online count by now. FOUR people online? It's really not worth keeping it up and paying that part of the hosting fee. Either we need more recurring donations to fully cover the monthly fee ($49) and online players or it probably should shutdown.

It's not the easiest getting new players on or even getting old ones back.

I would be happy to up my donation, but would like to coordinate with others that already do to formally agree on sustaining this $49/month cost.

Orn, Sos, Tech.... can we divide and conquer so we don't have to worry about this? This would help us stabilize and bring newer players and dev's to the table

I am willing to up my donation to $15/month.

Me and Orn can cover $20 out of $49.

Can anyone else pick up the remaining $29???

I've been on the $4/month for a long time now, so you can add that to the mix. Sadly that when a server has some extended downtime, it's really hard to get the old players back or add new ones for quite some time. Takes patience and some demonstrated and consistent uptime. On Rebirth, once we had our extended down time, we never got our users back.

We have a small committed group now. 2-3 of us it seems.

The server being down for so long definitely killed some potential for us that only being on consistently will mend. Having months worth of uptime is as good as any advertising. People know of this server. Playing UO can be cyclical. Lets stay on long enough to show players this is a place they can call home without fear of downtime.

I am seeing other servers struggle to have consistent uptime. New AoS servers and even old time ones like Rebirth that Miffy described. It's not easy getting to this point... And UO is not gaining any popularity.

Therefore: 1. let's find out how much of this $49/month is currently covered. 2. Lets cover the rest. 3. I will personally pay a Developer [hopefully Dex] to update and add new content to the server. 4. have time to gradually campaign for new players on multiple fronts.

Thoughts? I can't do this without you guys.. and this server has too much going on with it to walk away from forever. Let's have a huddle everyone!
