[SITE] Bills Bills Bills

Post by Miles » October 29th, 2019, 7:44 pm

Hey all!

This one kind of snuck up on me.
Back in 2017 we managed to raise enough to cover the cost of hosting for the site and the forum for 3 years.
That three years is nearly up (Around March), and the renewal for a year is around 100GBP (factoring in fees and exchange rates).

So again I ask you all to help out, and help keep this site going for a long time to come!

Thank you <3

So, why not using a patreon page? It won't cost you anything, and you can post your game updates on Dropbox or something else than this dead forums.

I have a patreon page, it's linked in my signature.
I had to rework it to be for my own project because you can't host non-creative works on Patreon.
The project itself also is pornographic and has some elements that breach Patreon rules, so we can't directly run a patreon.

Dropbox and other filesharing sites also often have rules against this content, as well as bandwidth limits and a hell of a lot less control over said files.

We push nearly 40GB of traffic a day we're lucky that our host is fine with us only paying £100/yr for the service.

That's why we can't use patreon, and why we don't scrap a dedicated host.

Also, the forums are going to be reworked with the next release, that's just taking a little longer than anticipated.

I'm afraid i can't support the game other than being patient, since i don't have any money, sadly.

But since the last dev update i'm still checking every week, even if we were neglected (we never know)

I'm conscient that a lot of fans can't wait anymore and turn that passion for the game into hatred thougts and that's quite sad, i understand them to the fact that we were litteraly neglected, but, the way it turned is surely too extreme and i can't defend that.

I know i didn't posted a ton here, but i was following the development since...Since i wasn't even registered actually.
Don't have any money to give, but i will stay patient, that's the only thing i can give, my patience.
Can't wait to see all the news, since i don't have the Project X Discord.

(I will probably be judged or insulted in any forum not related to the team, but hey, i'm just a neutral fan who gives it's point of view about the situation, i'm not the kind of guy that wants conflict, nor saying wich side is right, both have reasons, and both are guilty in a certain way, but i forgive people that can't hold the wait anymore, and the team, hoping we'll not be neglected as much as it happened this year, everyone deserves one last chance. Take care.) :P

Ok this thread had gone massively off topic, so I've trimmed it back to on-topic posts.
