    We had every intention of shutting things down..but then this donation stuff and everyone seemed really upset..it just, seemed like the right thing to do at the time.

    It depends on how things go, on whether we keep it up longer than a month

    So is the current donation enough for it to stay up for a month or even longer? What is happening

    My question is are things going to change and get done or is it just going to be same old and die again in a couple months

    I hope it isn't the latter, that would mean that the donation is basically delaying the ultimate demise.

    $200/mnth seems crazy for specs to run a GMod server, but maybe I'm missing something here. Could we talk about getting that number down to make things a little more sustainable (even if we only scrape a few more months out)?

    They pay for an entire server (physical server).

    Don't know much about GMod hosting except "NO THREADS ALLOWED", but is it possible we reduce that? You could pay off some serious hardware on that budget pretty quickly.

    Hard to know since I don't know the full situation or circumstances surrounding the hosting. Yanzy / Rainy would be able to give a much better answer. But personally I think that if we wanted to reduce the costs we could drop the teamspeak and just operate on discord alone and move the server and forum hosting to independent sources.

    Unfortunately it's not possible to reduce the dedicated server costs without switching hosts. The main reason we went with our current one is the excellent DDoS protection. We've tried several other hosts in the past and so far this has been the best fit.
