YO Clan server costs

As I'm sure some of you are aware, running a public gaming community isn't cheap.

Luckily we have our own server box (owned by Dink, kindly given to us to use and maintain for YO servers). Our bandwidth costs are paid for by each YO admin and any donations we receive from you lovely people. The amount we are billed is around £1500 per year.

With these amounts added together we are just about able to meet the bill for our colocation with Multiplay.

But this wouldn't be possible without the donations we get from the community. I'm sure you would all like to see YO continue into the next year and save up for hardware updates to make our servers bigger and better.

So give us a thought if you have any cash to spare and know that you're helping your community to stay alive! :P In addition, you'll receive a cool in-game icon! Image


If you'd like to help us out and give a little something back to your favourite NS server, you can donate to us using Image. If you'd like to donate in another way send a forum PM to sprouts42.

Thanks for reading!

Hey, I just gave up a month of WoW... Please don't make me unsub from my favourite porn site too. My life would loose all it's meaning :cry:

Does anyone want to donate to get a new lightbulb for goku? :(

Might even provide pics of the working lightbulb in my room..

edit: You wont actually be paying me for the lightbulb, but a donation might be a step towards a brighter future! - see what I did there? :)

edit2: Shameless attempt at generating self revenue, please donate though guys we are grateful.

If you play around with the letters of my nick you might end up with the "Mrs Shad", which is the name of my English teacher that abused me once during the lunch break in 8th grade. *Sigh* Mrs Shad :oops:

Or, by some unbelievable miracle, you might get Dr SmaSh... but we do not say that name around here anymore :shifty:
