Hey everyone, I hope you’re all doing well!

 

As stated earlier in the month, our host consolidated most of our bills to the first of each month. This means that we’ll now need to open the donation window on the last Saturday of each month rather than the first. Today is the first day of the new schedule and things are actually pretty simple for our finances in August so this post will be quite a bit shorter than in previous months.

 

Our donation window on Saturday, July 6th went over by quite a bit due to pending donations at the time it was closed. Our contingency fund ($1,250) is still full, so we actually have an additional $1,699.47 to put towards the bills for August.

 

July Breakdown

Our last donation window was on July 6th, so this one will be from that point onward. If you would like to see a breakdown of our expenses and invoices for the month of July then feel free to check out this post.

 

We were billed pro-rata for our SQL server licenses from the 11th ($88.92) and 15th ($71.98) of July to the 31st of July, consolidating these bills to the first of August:

On the 20th and 22nd we paid IPSFocus (https://www.ipsfocus.com/) a total of $47 to license the base theme for the forums which we had been working on modifying for our forums. We were in the process of getting a quote from them for a custom theme, but after tinkering with an existing base they had, we decided to just license it and continue working on that instead. Other colour schemes for Villains and Praetorians are on the way!

 

Lastly, on the 22nd of July we were billed $10.00 for Atlassian Jira Cloud, which we use for task management.

August Breakdown

Our monthly upkeep has settled in at $4,823.40:

  • $4,716.60 to OVH for our servers
  • $10 for Atlassian Jira (Cloud, 10-user plan)
  • $96.00 for Google G-Suite (Business, 8 users)

 

We do not have any additional expenses in August and the contingency fund is still full, so after deducting July 6th’s overrun, the donation target for the month of August comes in at $3,123.93.

 

As of the time of this post, our donations will be open at https://forums.homecomingservers.com/donate and will automatically close when the donation goal has been met.

 

Edit: The donation goal has been met and donations are now closed. Thank you for all of the support!

 

Thank you again for your continued support; we look forward to the future!

FINALLY at the right place at the right time. 

Me too! I didn’t donate much, and I know they’ll get plenty of donations but I still wanted to do my part! Glad I finally got the chance!

I'm still not happy you've been listening to the nerf-herders who want everyone to play their way, but I do want to show my appreciation for what you've done to sustain this game.  Glad I was online when the announcement hit.

12 minutes!  Still pretty fast!  I was a little concerned that it might take longer, as I have seen the daily player population slipping a bit lately.  But, playing or not, it seems the will to donate is as strong as ever!
