@Bubu I can't be of much help when it comes to Linux.

It looks like RADIOSMERSH and Bubu are capable and willing to set up and maintain a Linux server, which can save some money.

I also looked at all the other server providers that were mentioned in the old threads and didn't find any better deals than Hetzner's for similar hardware and OS.

So, the rent for a very similar server from the same provider, with no Windows, is currently 33.00 €, if paid by a German or some other European VAT paying citizen. However, if you are from other countries, such as the US, apparently they don't charge you a tax, so the price is 27.73 €:

As much I'd like I can't help much, as Russian government is currently planning to introduce VAT on purchaces in foreign online stores and seems like Hetzner decided to cover all the bases by increasing prices 18% since this January (so its 32.82 € now).

Quote RADIOSMERSHYou can count on me too.

Quote Endless_NamelessDone.I'll try to add a Paypal link, too when there's a dedicated mail.Thanks to both of you Radio and Eye!

I will let you know Eye when once there is a dedicated mail and I suppose we should set this up as soon as possible.

I could imagine it in this way, take this as rough on-the-go idea:
There would be one Gmail account shared across multiple people. This should be at least 2, and less than 4 people: 'whoever is responsible enough' and 'is up to do this'.
The Gmail account would be used to register on the PayPal site and create a shared budget for the community to pay the server.

But honestly, I have never used PayPal yet so I don't know whether there can be 2~4 people responsible for one PP account? Is anyone from US willing to do this?

Omg...

So is Wewi ok? Do you have any contact on him? Anything? He does not reply to any of our emails to neither of his 2 email addresses! More over no one knew you are paying him the money monthly. Are you sure you are not sending money to a 'dead account'?

The server has been 'dead' for what...week or more? I lost the track of time, sorry,  but there is certainly no Remote connection to it so I can't do anything and the only one who could restart it from Hetzner's web interface is Wewi, provided that he is alive, has login credentials and the Hetzner guys did not delete the server completely!

I ruled out the option that the server has not been deleted by first 48 hours since the moment it went offline.

Server IP looks up for sale actually, according to that hostname :?

Dunno anything about wewi, i send money to his bank. We never had problems. My only conctact with him was by our PM. I knew endless gave to wewi all access to the server, but i think wewi has changed all pw. If you change server i can continue to pay for it. I only need a new bank account.

Do I get this right?

Quote Lampo ()
BancoPostaOnline: Confirm Required SEPA Wire Transfer - 26 Aug 2017

BancopostaOnline: Confirms Taking Over SEPA Bonus - 26 Sep 2017

BancoPostaOnline: Confirmation Required.


The last time you transferred money to Wewak was 26 Aug 2017, and now you are being asked to confirm the next regular transfer (but you haven't done so already)? So, you've been sending him money regularly. So, the issue is not insufficient funding. So, it is Wewak and/or Hetzner's fault. Then I guess you should stop the transfers to Wewak from this month on and see if perhaps he notices and comes here to see what is going on.

I don't think this is possible directly with PayPal. Only with Bitcoin wink In dealing with PayPal/banks/etc. and with Hetzner itself we could register a legal entity, like a company or something, but it's probably not worth the time/effort/money.

So, it looks like now we are looking for someone, preferably from a non-EU/Russia country, to take Wewak's role and register a new account at Hetzner, order a server, and have other members set up regular donations towards paying the server, like Lampo has been doing. That person will obviously be responsible to pay the bills from the donations.

The good news is that perhaps we can reduce that 60Euro budget a lot by 1. going ahead with the idea of setting up a Linux server instead of a Windows one; 2. not paying VAT if from a non-EU/Russia country; 3. a couple more bucks savings thanks to current market (Hetzner auction) price for renting equivalent hardware.

Also, Hetzner interface allows to invite someone into the server management (as E-3 pointed out), so having 1-2 backup people who would have access to the Hetzner.

No news. A long time has passed. Apparently, a new server will have to be set up.

It looks like there are enough donation commitments for a Linux server, with VAT included (10 €/month each from E-3, Marduk, Lampo, and a little more from Robert and/or BornDarkness would get it to 33€/month). I don't know why no one has stepped forward to order a server yet. It seems simple to me.

This week I'll have to stop the server for a few hours. I'll try to keep it online in the evenings, when there could be players on. But you have to understand that I can't keep this current server arrangement for very long. Please try to find a long term solution this week.
