Nice to see the downloads backed up on a forum. This is what I meant when I said doing the free hosting for the downloads. Looks like every thing's the same as here, so the problem seems to be solved.

There's nothing at that announcement site tho, is it supposed to be like that?

There should be no worry about that since the downloads are gone...... right??

AЯynis Wrote:Shadowfang would prefer to go in the direction of donations, I'm not sure about ads, but donations will be a given. And since we're going that route, and transparency should be maintained for this matter, our current hosting cost is about 60 euros per month. We're going to look into if this cost can be reduced one way or another, but sadly I can't make promises. What matters is that we will need donations regardless of the finalized cost.
Donations sound best.

There aren't many features that could be used as "benefits", unless you make significant changes in things like Avatar size, Sig size, Inbox capacity, leaving only the "enhanced" features to those who donate in a constant basis. <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/NAC_Smiley_Pack_Default/confused1.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->
Traffic and bandwidth are issues too, but maybe you can give some "space" to those premium users for blogs or things like that, using the domain of NAC.
Maybe there's not much that can be done as benefits, but those are better than nothing, right? And some people might be very happy with having a donator badge or special title or something like that, which is done on other forums. Not sure about giving space to premium users tho. If NAC is already so big then giving even more space for other people sounds like a bad idea, unless NAC can make a profit selling space. But that would mean charging more then other hosts, and why would people go for that? Unless they simply wanted to host with NAC out of the goodness of their hearts, which is cool. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/NAC_Smiley_Pack_Default/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Happy" /><!-- sSmile -->
