    ======================

    Forgive me for asking... but what does a one-time cost of buying an SSD (or two) have anything to do with "already high monthly expenses". That makes it sound like you're trying to say that buying one or two SSD's will increase monthly costs/fees.

    This is not a flame post, I am genuinely curious as to the wording and meaning of that statement. To me, increasing monthly expenses would be more bandwidth charges, or fees to a server hosting location, etc., etc... not a static cost of a disk drive (or two).

    Edit: if you're talking about factoring in the cost of two 256 GB SSD drives (for example), over a yearly budget... that comes out to about an extra $0.90 per day.

    Putting up a separate "Donate" link would probably help, if you stated that the purpose was for server hardware upgrade(s). This could be simply removed once the hardware had been acquired. There might even be people that would donate the actual hardware required (instead of sending cash funds).

    I get it that maintenance has to happen at some time. But I am sure there are just as many EU chaps as US. Does the maintenance always have to be at EST preferable times?

    Fanboi replies aside, I expect to get flamed. Surely my opinion counts as much as anyone else's? I got flamed in a previous post a while ago for suggesting that all the devs/mods were American, and told that was not the case. So why not alternate between EU and US convenient times for the maintenance?

    And Dymonite, some of us actually do pay for this and make contributions every month. We can't all be sponging fanbois.

    I always hated that with the swg team on live, they always took down the server at midday GMT so that us euro players lost time in game and the Americans didn't lose any because they should be asleep by that time of the morning.

    I mean why do Americans get to play till 4am and we lose time in the day surely they should have done server downtime at like midnight USA time back in the day of swg live. Damn them old swg devs lol

    I'm sure though that the swgemu devs are much nicer people than the swg devs and accommodate the euro players much better. Let's hope anyway as its not ALL about the USA time zone you know people.
