I dont know too much about hosting a server, but my buddy hosed a counter strike server in his house. I thought about building one, and hosting it through my isp at my new house. I will have my internetz turned on in a few weeks, then i could save a little money and build something and see how it goes.

I would need some of you guys to help me with the software and set up, but I am sure I could get the hardware stuff taken care of.

Not likely, Krazy. I would imagine that there would be considerable lag and packet loss on a >+ 24 player server.

I did a little checking and it seems that US$40ish /month seems to be about the going rate for getting a server through a hosting service. I kinda like the idea, but w/ a membership count of 23 i think that would likely be quite taxing on the individual. Not to mention, some might be a little gun-shy after the debacle of their last donation experiance.

I *have* a TF server that sits empty that you guys can use whenever you want. Its a 28 person server. Please use it instead of buying another one. I have never in my life felt like I wasted so much money before as that fucking server and it doesn't expire til like February 4th so until then, use it, please.

If it gets usage, I will consider renewing it in February.

Also, its located in VA, so you guys ping well on it.

Kristy, whats the IP for it, we should all hop on it and see how it runs. How much a month is it to host it? if we split it up between us all, it cant be much.

check out the box below the ShoutMix, it lists Kristy's server, and has a play like that will take you right to her serv if you click it.

kristy's server is great.. its in virginia and pings great for most of us east coasters.. the problem as with any server is population maintenance.. you need a dedicated group of people willing to start it up each night.. the community isnt big enough for that yet.. also we are more mature so we dont have people always ready to play earlier in the night.. our more shackled married folk only have x amount of time to play (yard time) so they really need to get into a server running full steam already.. once we build up the community with our friends we should explore a server down the road.. just keep passing the word that we're here to our old friends...

has anybody asked ryuhi to stop by?

I keep questioning if I should or not, but the walls of word on the CoN site he keeps posting (about the same thing over and over) frightens me off.

Whoa!! Kristy has a server in VA! I'm all for it. Kristy, if we can get it going good like you say in February, contact me and I will donate $50 American dollars to you.

I will be able to be counted on, but i've been busy the past few nights, as has been explained in the shoutbox.

I'm just putting the idea out there, seeing what people thing, but what are people's thoughts on using standby bots to fill server slots until X amount of people join? I know in the past from other servers and talking with people who've run servers that sometimes having bots hold 4 slots while the server is vacant, and then disappear once players join, can get pub players into an otherwise empty server.

It's trickery I know, and I'm not sure how I feel about it personally, only to say that it's worked for some server admins to generate initial traffic. That, and keeping the server idle on a certain popular map until it starts to fill, and THEN starting the rotation.

A CS:S server I play on does this and it works well. I say do it. It won't hurt anything and its good target practice while people are waiting for the server to build up; gives them something to do instead of sitting in an empty server.

Agreed!

Someone should look in to that for Kristy... NOT ME!
