Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser


I am now ordering the SECOND hard drive for the full video dump! Yup, another $1000 donation has been made and received!! They did not say if I could release their name yet, so they will remain anonymous until I get an answer.

Keep going! You guys are awesome!! ^_^

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

Phade, one thing that I've never really understood - there are monthly targets to keep the server running, but it seems to always fall short of that goal - how has this place continued to run? Or who's been paying the rest? Those goals are actually stupidly old and irrelevant to the normal monthly ...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

Okay, so as I read this, funds raised will determine whether we can afford to purchased additional servers dedicated to specific tasks, but those would possibly be cheaper models because they don't need as much in some areas. The amount of funds raised will determine the possible server or servers ...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

Finally, for everyone who does donate $1000 or more, I will send you a very special gift. I will go out and buy a brand new hard drive, copy every single video from AnimeMusicVideos.org over to the drive, and mail it to you along with some very nice bonuses Hi Phade, I have some questions about thi...

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 from the firs...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

So what happens if even the halfway mark isn't met? Would people be given their money back, or would you move forward with purchasing the server anyway? Like Koop said, I'm not trying to be pessimistic, but if I'm going to contribute I'd like to know what will happen to my money. :P The servers mus...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

While I'm currently poor as all hell, I'll do my best to donate at least $1 for every video listed on my profile.... 69 :ying: That's the spirit! If everyone donated $1 for every video they hosted here, we wouldn't need another fund raiser for the next 10 years!! :-D EDIT: Any chance of us getting ...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

I know I've donated in the past, but I didn't have responsibilities like I have now... As much as I'd love to donate now I simply can't. :( I can absolutely relate to this! When I started the Org, I was single with a day job and nothing to do all night. Now I have a wife and 2 kids and a cat and a ...

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 have only been on the site for a few years, and I would have no problem contributing... IF, as Koop said, there were also plans to update and "fix" the org. I do not feel comfortable in putting my money into something that will likely just keep dying anyways. Earlier this week I read GloryQuestor...
