    The Future of TeamMP.net

    On July 8th, the web hosting for these forums will be expiring.

    Normally, the yearly renewal is handled more or less behind the scenes, occasionally we've passed the hat amongst members to help us scratch up the $ for the hosting costs.

    The last year has seen many changes to Team MP, our community and interactions, with a lot of the activity shifting over to our discord server.
    Because of this, and declining use of this forum, instead of going through our usual annual routine with renewing, I thought I would put the question to the members, and see what the community is thinking.

    The cost for another year of hosting is $95.88, so, not exactly a pile of money. I imagine we could scrape it up with small contributions from our members pretty quickly. So the question is really, whether our members feel it is worth it to contribute to keep this particular site up and running.

    Obviously, our Discord isn't going anywhere, so we aren't debating the future of the team itself, just the TeamMP.net domain name and website hosting.

    On one hand, it's pretty quiet and not used as much as Discord.
    On the other hand, it's a portal that's easy to point folks to, the discussions here have a longer 'life' than on Discord, etc.
    I'm sure there're other pros/cons I'm not thinking of, feel free to throw in your 2 cents.

    I say give it one more year and then ask the question again. While the number of posts are way down, it is still used by some and is still an important venue for recruiting.

    We still haven't gotten everyone over to Discord yet.

    Presto Bitch!!

    Like Spike says, this seems to be our public face, unless we want to invest more time in Fk - keep it for a while.

    Well, so far the response has 100% been for renewing another year. Unfortunately, there haven't been many folks weighing in.

    We've got just shy of a week, so, might as well just start the 'pledge drive'. If we fall short and end up not renewing, I'll just paypal all donations back to their senders.

    teammpgaming3@gmail.com is the address used for paypal. I'll update the op with a running tally periodically.

    Thanks guys!

    Done. And If you do fall short let me know before you decide to not renew.

    Presto Bitch!!

    Thanks Tonka! Sheesh, the paypal fees must be some special deal for you overseas folks.
    Though I did notice that even choosing 'friends and family' if I'd used a credit card there is now a small fee associated ($0.88), but I was still able to transfer for free from a bank account.

    Thanks to whoever threw in yesterday. Sorry I don't know what handles match up with what real names for everyone. But thanks! We are only $15 away from what we need.
