VB still costs a fortune. I run it on my site. Fingers crossed we resolve this. Anyone from multiplay here? Madrixis?

I'd like to know just how much bandwidth this site does use, I don't think it would be as much as all the bandwidth ut-files.com and all of it's sub domains consumes on a monthly basis.

Transferring the domain and site to someone else probably wouldn't ever happen, but allowing someone else to host it could still be a very possible solution, just highly unlikely.

Right, space had ran out all over the show. Should never really do that but it did. Also when they moved the server a while back they didn't re-enable all my access.

So, I've cleared up as much space as I can how I can and once I get all my access back I'll make sure everythings good.

Sorry I'm not around much, life just dictates that.
Best thing to do though to get hold of me is to make a new thread and then report your own post, that way I'll get an email about it, or, if the forums are a bit fubar'd, email me on [email protected] ..

With regards to site stats/figures ... all I can say is we've had the best deal you could ever imagine from Multiplay, they ask for very little in return, never bother us and give us the community a dedicated server with "unlimited" bandwidth (unlimited aka don't take the piss).

I'm extremely thankful for what you do, and glad you popped in to explain things.

Respectfully though, is there no active person you would trust to help do this for you? The rolling outages will end up hurting badly and it sounds like they aren't fixed, just delayed again. What's to keep Multiplay from deciding this is too bothersome, especially if hardware upgrades are called for? Skillz has run a solid service for years now, how about letting him have more access to back up things? Sony has offered to share some hosting load, perhaps it's time to consider dividing responsibility lest UA go the way of NaliCity, L4U, Team Vortex, UTPG, even Planet Unreal (of all places).

No one cared for things until they broke. That should show that the current paradigm isn't working.

Great to see you mate

Thanks for sorting DB issues etc

I had a 1/2 descent proposal which would allow for a very economical solution which would even provide Europe
with several high-speed server's for not only UT99 but 2k4/UT3 even if warranted.. See below;



^ Click image for more info ^

OVH
10Gb(connection)
16-48GB Ram
Unlimited BW
2x120GB-HDD's
^ upgradable to 1-2TB?
(Europe/France)




^ Click image for more info ^

VBulletin 4.0 one time licence Fee

That's a 10GB connection with unlimited Bandwidth and 24GB Ram BTW. for only $100 - $200 € per annum.
VBulletin is now Single Licence Fee for whatever version you wish to run on an indefinite basis..
as of opposed to per annum, so what's that? $200USD? (one off) for VB4 + security fixes/updates for whichever Version you choose.


Adding ^_^ linking back to
[email address]

would ensure that us active community members could help to foot the bill
and make it worth while for you to continue to provide this excellent service.

I was also thinking ... as one does heh..
That because there is alot of sensitive data in these forums ..
things that should not be privy to the general public per-se.
Like certain Code snippets and mod's / posts that should be imo moved to a 2nd/3rd tier (level) as such..

what Iam trying to say is ...
setup some groups like level 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 for Registered users...

level one (ground zero) resides the guests & rogues..& Banned users...
^ They have access to the basic stuff...

levels 2-3 get access to some m0re meaty stuff

levels 4-5 could be Mid level Admins/Moderators...

levels 6-7 could be where all you Elite folk could hang out and talk about us low-life's hehe.. jk's.

This would ensure a tight-knit community and allow for the Moderation load to be Dispersed across the board
eliminating the need to be worried about Hax0rz snooping in on sensitive projects as well as keeping the more
troublesome folk under-control.

also , added and appended to this extensive list I was wondering..

<_< See the Forums -> New posts link (over there)..
could we add like some other links , like posts last 24hours/7days/30days to that please?..

would make things a little bit easier to navigate and keep up with what's been happening ^_^ .

also a new Skin/Logo would be a nice refreshing addition for the next 10 years
I can help with alot of stuff graphics/forums/moderating etc.. as I have setup more forums across the board then
probably the guys who made them lmao..

Any-way's that's my .50 cents worth

Again thanks for coming over and sorting the problem(s) out..
I am sure that I can speak for all of us remaining members in saying

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THESE FORUMS

B4M.

That is an excellent deal then, something I wouldn't pass up either.

What can be done to get more space, aside from the obvious deleting stuff. Can hardware be donated? If so, who and where? I am sure we can get the community as a whole to donate enough money for a hard drive.

If their is anything else you need, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

To be honest there should be no need for new hardware. What has happened is that the server has not been touched or looked at it in ... well probably 2 years. What we will have are backups galore of anything and everything going back to god knows when so first stop will be to remove them, then clear out any dead wood eg. mulitple site testing from 3/4/5 years ago.

Once I've managed to sort all that out I can then work out if we actually do need anything.

After that it will probably be time to look at bringing another one or two people in to keep the side moving onwards and upwards :-)

Ten four.

Sounds like what I do to my server, I have to "spring clean" it every once in a while because the primary hard drive gets a little too full.

32GB Ram
Quad Core Xeon

Only doing this because I know my mate loves this site and would most proberly cry if it went (Meindratheal)

Anyway

Apologies for the outage again, SSH is getting restored now.

If the site does down again email [email address] as an alternate address as mail seemed to have gone with it this time.
