    Hey Guys,

    In an effort for transparency, I feel it would be useful to share how much money goes into keeping Bor3d Gaming alive. As you know I request donations monthly from everyone, but that's only a portion of what is paid out of pocket. I don't think many communities do this and I don't want anyone thinking I pocket a dime of your money. So here is what I spend those donations costs and what comes out of my pocket:
    • Dedicated Server: $99 per month
    • Control Panel Software: $15.95 per month
    • Web Hosting: $57 per month
    • Forum Software: $40 per year
    • gameMe Stats: $7 per month
    • TeamSpeak License: $30 per year
    So whenever you guys donate to cover the dedicated game server and TeamSpeak costs, I'm left with $82.99 per month (roughly).

    Trust me, no pity party here for me. I enjoy running Bor3d Gaming, but I also want to show why donations are so important. A little bit to alleviate the burden of all these bills is a great thing to have. So please, continue to donate when you can!

    This also does not include custom plugin development that can happen time to time. So far I've already spent $290 total on custom server and forum plugins.

    So if you're up for helping me keep Bor3d Gaming alive, please feel free to donate.

      I will try to support as much as I can with my own illegibility which I also enjoy playing on the server. So far to me, [BG] is a great community and I hope it will be for how long it will progress.
