Re: I Am Stepping Down

Being a 'submod' it's always been an uphill battle with certain people in the administration. I remember having to fight tooth and nail to get something done, only to have it put on hold indefinitely. Not having access to the mod forum also meant I had to go through other people to get shit done. I'...

This speaks to me on many levels. Somehow ended up cooking a 3 course dinner after watching this. Put that shit in my belly Matt!

Re: Spring Cleaning: Doing the Org's Work

Well, you are asking for minutia details on what is going to happen and doing so in a quite accusational tone. Neither of these invite a warm or timely response. You're asking for a hefty sum without any clear plan that outlines the usage of the funds. While also being notoriously absent from anyth...

Re: Spring Cleaning: Doing the Org's Work

If I could get some sort of coherent response to my last post, that'd be appreciated. Or do I need to post captioned images or meme in order to get any kind of response? Seeing as that seems to be the way these things work around here lately. https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/Grrrreat.jpg?_subject_uid=...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

Okay, so we're currently running 4 main servers and 1 backup. Phade has offered to pay for a replacement backup out of his own pocket. He referred to the replacement main servers being "server s ," plural. How many are we talking about purchasing here? A full 4 (which is my impression fro...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

If we only get half our goal, we get a new but not quite as nice server (not as redundant, cheaper parts, might last only 3 years instead of 6 like our current ones). No matter what, the servers are getting replaced. All donations go to this effort. No exceptions. Cheaper parts don't inherently mea...

Re: Spring Cleaning: Doing the Org's Work

⋅  New Pro Features – One major group of users the Org has not helped over the years is convention coordinators. If an anime convention wants to do anything with AMVs (contests, exhibitions, etc.), the convention coordinator must do it themselves and this can often be a pain for them. The...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

I've stated this before, it's not hard to spec and price out a server. You can literally go to a website right now, add components to your cart and see how much it would cost including warranty. Additionally you can see how much rack space would cost, they have prices listed for this purpose. Telli...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

I found it annoying before, but now it is flat out frustrating because we are now being asked to give donations, and I see you are trying to avoid questions about it here as well. Excuse me, but I can only see Phade trying to reply to the questions raised. H is going to spend lots of his money as w...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

So lets throw in a redundant PSU, raid card and 2 extra 6TB drives. Chassis was included and so were rack rails. From the look of the cart I get some warranty options and the total comes to about 9.5/10K if you want to be fancy. Still has a lot of cash unaccounted for. Specs don't shift that fast s...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

I threw everything at the wall exceeding your specs and I'm not coming above $8-9K. All in all $8,298.88 with vast room for expansion. What did I miss? RAID card, dual redundant power supplies, more storage drives (greater redundancy, cold spares), chassis, rack rails, manufacturer warranty, and so...

Can you give us a cost analysis and breakdown for the amount you hope to raise?
