Hey kbsm, wanna play against the locals in a clan match?
should be an easy win for you 1337 folk and it'd be like target practice
We aint got a real server but boris could host as he has a fastish connection n cs guard/hl guard
Or we could steal a server :D

Thats untrue according to the site regardless of size all the servers are placed on a 155MB pipe therefore a 14 man will have the same bandwith as an 18 man, the only difference would probably be processing power.
well for safety reasons and so everyone knows where there money is going id recommend paying by cheque to one person then that person payong the cash via there card. i have one and would be willing to do it. it also means u have an address to go from incase u think im gonna run off with ya money. also if ya on my msn list youll notice my mobile number should be listed in the properties so there is another point of contact. i would however be happy for someone els to do it if you prefer. bear in mind the person who u nominate will have to be 18 years of ag or over with a debit or credit card to pay.
the following is from the company that barry suggested
Server Prices HalfLife and Mods
These prices are for HL Mod Servers, including CStrike, DOD and TFC, Not including Natural Selection.
12 Player £35pm
14 Player £40pm
16 Player £45pm
18 Player £55pm
20 Player £65pm
All Servers are debranded, Password free (public) and include FTP access.
Admin mod or Clan Mod is Free
VAC (Valves Anti Cheat) Free
HLG (Half Life Guard) £5pm
Daily Web Stats £5pm
Both the above £10
for 16 player we need a few more peeps and thqts without any of the extra options.
£45 x 12 = 540
so far we have only 9 members saying ok ill pay (at £50 max)
9 x £50 = £450 so as you can see we are £90 short. if that cost was to be split amongst us all tha would be £7.50 extra a month. it dont sound much but it adds up.
if we were to go for a 14 man server instead might be a tight squeeze but its somewhere to call home and i wouldnt mind a new one at the minute (sorry private joke) the prices are as follows
£40 x 12 = £480 (without optional extras such as statsme) that means we are only £30 short which is an extra £3.34 a month. so unless someone else is willing to chip in or we get a worldwarx server we have alot to think about.
the following is worldwar x's pricing
14 Player Private Clan Servers
3 months - £100 (£33.33/month)
12 months - £331 (£27.58/month)
16 Player Private Clan Servers
3 months - £115 (£38.33/month)
12 months - £379 (£31.58/month)
18 Player Private Clan Servers
3 months - £130 (£43.33/month)
12 months - £427 (£35.58/month)
at these prices we currently have enuff for an 18 man PRIVATE server going on the fact wed all have to chip in £47.44 each. rganted we know we have lag probs on there server before but a larger server by rights will probobly have more bandwidth available and when are we ever going to have a 9 v 9 clan match. i suggest we take termys suggestion and have a run around there server for maybe 30 mins or so and leave 2 slots free and see wot happs ping wise to 56k's and barry if hes still in the clan and is gonna pay. balls in your guys courts now.
As I mentioned in shafts post, I had no problems in 2 wwx servers last nite.
Maybe we should consider 1 after all? I suggest you try another 1 first Barry :)
Secondly, (Not discussed in Boris's post) Muuhuuhahahaha
How many player slots do we have? 12, 14, 16, 18, 32 lol
rite, so at the moment what options do we have?
according to shafts thread we have £300.39
the ideas over admin controls are to:
get admin mod or
get clan mod
Admins will be the ppl who pay 4 the server, and the clan leaders will get a few extra powers.
WE dont know how many players we goin to have, 4 the mo im suggesting 16 players :)
ah, the entire thread summed up in 1 little post. (i hope)
tell me if i missed anyfin
waoh G calm it!!! we're only throwing suggestions, nothing is definite, as alot of this is still very much in the air!! we wanna make sure all possible problems are ironed out b4 anthing definite goes ahead.
Fine... this aint workin out! Whateva gets suggested, some1 has to come up with something better. If you wanna go ahead n use clan mod... i dont really care but you can sort it all out regarding access levels n shit as if you are now deciding to use something else, I will have wasted my time.
Sort it out yaselves and i'll just throw me money at ya wen its sorted.
Clan mod is so much better as i have experiance with begin a admin on the *LSN* if u wish to c how kool our server is pop along our ip is
and alos look at our weeby for info and downloads of clan matches etc
(KBSM shud download a few and take a look)
there ya go
chocky has voiced some concerns over the ideas of a joint server so id like to see his views in print and views on his views before we get to excited about anything. G thats exactly wwot i was saying except ive heard clan mod is better than admin mod, ive only used admin mod tho so i cant comment on that. but basically i agree with the commands thing G just pointed out except i think all ppl should admin all the time. just the different levels distinguishing between the 2. i have used admin mod in the past in these cicumstances and it worked fine. granted ppl will find it annoying but sum level of order has to be maintained.
luckily i had a spare half hour, so i read that post, and admin_kick is there. but i still not sure, aint neva used admin b4, so if we get this server it'll be my first time:D. speak to phantom he has experience in these matters!
i thought wif admin mod u could only take off each lvl,
so takin off the ban lvl, will mean takin off the kick 1 too...
...or are we talking about something else and i cudnt be arsed to read about it cuz the post was too long?
all i am saying is rcon is known only by clan leaders (who paid) and only clan leaders can ban. i think lessers :D should only be able to kick to stop abuse that could happen. as abusers will have to have admin removed and no refunds will be given!
thats sounds ok but the calander thing is shit m8 u cant tell an admin he can only use his powers on a monday at 1pm till 5:36pm if ur in the server use wot powers u r given simple as, not 2 hard is it :P
Rite.... sorry to disagree with ya steve but i think yearly is better as getting payments off people is going to be hard work as it is...
Secondly, I kinda agree with shafts idea about admin...
My idea is as follows:
Give all clan members (None Payers) access to level 1 admin mod commands. These are as follows:
not as good an idea as u think but i dont have time to explain. ill go into it laters. if we get the server wwell definately have a match. who knows could make it a regular practice thing.
bleh im always on msn but i aint always there :P
about my bank account status... i think i have about £5 maybe....
i think it would be better to pay for 3 months or sommit than a year cus then the cash is easier to get
