Good day everyone,
in the past 2 Months we haven't reached our donation-goal #2, and this month it also seems that we will not hit the sweet spot.
We're not doing this for profit, which means that we have to pay the remaining amount to keep our Servers online.
The Server(s) for GTNH where paid by our Staff for almost 2 years before we had to consider donations, and we cannot rely on this again.
As a result, we will monitor the donations until 01.01.2018 (That's about 1,5 donation-cycles), and if we don't reach our goals, we'll consider taking one Server offline.
Unfortunately, since Delta and Epsilon are not compatible, the progress of all players on the Server that is removed will be lost.
We can't promise Character-Transfers, as this is a manual process, each file has to be edited by hand.
We hope you'll understand why we have to do this.
To be more specific about Hardware cost, here is a Detailed Summary of what we use and what we pay:

|Processor||Intel Xeon E3-1270V3|
|Memory||32 GB DDR3|
|HDD||2x 2TB; Hardware-Raid 1|
|Cost||40 Euro / Month|
Various required things (Price per Month)
|100GB Remote Backup-Location for Player-Profiles/SQL Dumps||3,45 EUR|
This results in a total monthly price of: 103,43 Euro
One generous Staff-Member keeps donating 20 Euro each Month, resulting in an open bill of 83,43 Euro.
