As many of you know the Contract for Our Dedicated box runs out first week in March ; the server account balance is sadly not infinite and quite frankly it is becoming as empty as the server it pays for!
Over the past six months Myself and many of the regulars have Attempted to keep those numbers up and get the server started ,It helped Until It became both a bore and a chore. - theres only so many times I can balance dynamite on a flagpole before it loses its charm.
Looking over the Server Utilization for the last month shows an average player count high of EIGHT on a THIRTY TWO slot server. My Server logs and Splatterladder confirm this (http://et.splatterladder.com/?mod=serve ... tilisation)
As is the Current State of things I see no future in continuing enemy territory servers .
These are my thoughts put into words .
I see no point in making a request for donations when the server box is being hardly used .
In the true spirit of a multi gaming community however if there is support for continuation then let it be shown .
There is until the first week in March to decide if we run another donation request , If we appoint some new refs and admins or if we let the dedicated server box go . Are there enough players out there that want a clan server opening with the midnight spikage name ?
Or is there a current et community that would bring our et friends together ?
Discuss .... Post ... Let your views be known ....
Thank you Gobbo .

I do agree with gobbo...we all know that ET is dying the question here is are we gona stay together and have some more fun with this old friend or we can't be bored in playing Et anymore?
Many of us aint playing ET for their own reasons. Iam not playing cause wasn't having that much fun lately and after almost 6 years of playing felt like having some holidays =)
Would like to see our ET server up and running...it wont be like the old times anymore but think we could still have some fun together.
We could think about give ref/admins rights to a few regs of our trust to help, cause not many clan members are playing atm.
The cheaters, rules breakers, bigmouthy players can ruin our fun also and if the server continues to be empty most of time we could try to make it private only to clanmembers and friends. But this would only work if most of us would still be interested in playing and donate to the server.
now iam gona shut up lol and time to listen to you all
