The setup cost varies.
This is what you get with the setup and how much it costs:

Plan 1
Web or Disk Space - 200mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 5gb
Price Per Year - $60.00 USD
----------------
Plan 2
Web or Disk Space - 500mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 10gb
Price Per Year - $120.00 USD
----------------
Plan 3
Web or Disk Space - 1000mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 15gb
Price Per Year - $180.00 USD
-----------------
Plan 4
Web or Disk Space - 1500mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 20gb
Price Per Year - $240.00 USD
-----------------
Plan 5
Web or Disk Space - 2000mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 25gb
Price Per Year - $300.00 USD
-----------------
Plan 6
Web or Disk Space - 2500mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 30gb
Price Per Year - $360.00 USD

NOTE: All the themes cost $60.00 USD.


The first payment WILL cost more than the next few years payments. You only need to pay for the theme ONCE! For example. If you but the Plan 1. It costs $60.00. The theme costs $60.00, which makes $120.00 for the first payment. All the rest of the payments will cost $60.00 as you will only need to buy the setup fee, and not the theme.

pls vote for the 1 u think we should attempt to save up for... please rmember we do ahve to get a pay pal acount and raise the funds still...thX HH for doing research

Ey guys.. I'm not positive on all the stats.. but I had placed a back-up forum on the G-tool server, because I had a lot of space.. and didn't really know what to do with it.

I could reconfigure it to be our new forums, or set up through the same site.. I actually think the free servers have quite a decent amount of bandwidth.

oh yeah, the back-up one I'd put here: http://echozaurora.netfast.org/forums/

Yeah, this is a much better option...

Free
350MB of disk space
15GB monthly transfer
No time limit.

I'd say problem solved.

This is a good enough idea for the time being.

But if we still manage to collect enough money. We can buy our forum. The forums that you buy have a lot more things that you can do with them and they have better administration.

I voted for Plan 2

all forums that u dont pay for will go up the same road as this... if we can get a paid for forum all the better becuase it will save this problem having repeated itself...

+ im betting it has a member limit of 120 max...

No theoretical member limit of a SMF forum.

My buddy helped me set it up, and he has been administrating and setting up forums for over a year.






*[KS] Bane-o (Echoz' buddy) types below:
The forum is a SMF powered forum that is php based type of forum software. The forum is completely customizeable with the knowledge of the php coding that is used to write the software, which I have acquired over the last year and a half for people. As far as member limits, there is no theoretical limit because the member list is stored within a SQL database; the free host that Echoz is using supports compression output of SQL data, which therefore means it uses very little bandwidth for logins and the SQL database ends up being very small, even with a large member list.

As far as posts go, the posts are parsed from BBC and basic html into a compressed .sql type of format and also will not take up a large amount of space within the database. The main forum I administrate and maintain has over 20000 posts with over a thousand topics and has only been up since Dec. 2007; the MySQL database size for the forum is only 197MB, which with regular cleaning of expired posts, the size of the database is easily manageable. Even with all that since December, we only use about 6gigs of data a month.

Any outside source of media, ex. imageshack, photobucket, youtube, ect..., does not count within the post bandwidth because of the way SMF parses the posts and displays it within the page.

Reference forums (forums by me)
[KS] Killer Swarm forum
No External Links forum






(Back to Echoz:)

So yeah, it would be more than enough for our size... and allow PLENTY of room for expansion.

Sounds good, at least the parts I understand fully. It still sounds only like a temporary solution, but fortunately, temporary solutions can last up to a few years - plenty of time to gather cash for another forum. Wink

WOW! Sounds like we have a winner!!!! I can't see any reason to go to a pay forum until we give this a go for at least another year or so! Question though can we change the address to something else? IE: www.AoF-alliance.com or something like that?

I could change the web address, someone would just have to buy the domain name.

Otherwise, I could set up an account specifically for Aof, that way it would be like aof.netfast.org/forums.

The netfast account is scalable, so even if we did need to expand into a premium account, it'd be easy.

Even for the basic premium account, you get:

5000MB of diskspace
250GB of bandwidth

Now.. this may be overselling, by a bit... maybe quite a bit.. but even still, should be plenty enough for us.

Price tag on that?
$35.88/year
$2.99/month

Which country currency though? Any country it happens to be, it still sounds cheap - nearly insanely so - and good for us and our expanding system of games.

HH has already applied for access to the forum, and I activated him earlier, before changing the settings to auto-register.

It is U.S. Dollars also. Which, considering how fast it's value is dropping, is cheap indeed.

Anyway though, all the members should indeed weigh in on it, and I am here to help when we are ready to transfer things over if need be.

If we are planning to move AoF to the forum that Aurora has provided. We need to get some work done to it first. We'll need to try and get the ads and pop-ups removed as some of them are unsuitable for young kids. I, myself saw a pop-up which i thought was unsuitable, even for my age.

Maybe sometime in the future we can get a domain. And then the forum site will be easier to remember and then it will look better.

If Aurora can give me administrator rights, i can try to transfer all the stuff from this forum to that, if the module is activated.

I'll let you know once i start getting most of the work done Wink

Regards,

HH.

Plan 2 i have voted for.

I dont have a paypal account and so we need to look at other options by which members can contribute.
We have to collect money as money was collected for the new Void server with various options.

There is nothing to worry we have more than 7 months to achieve this,this site is only 5 months old.

We need to discuss other means to contribute and we need to keep a tab on how much has been contributed so far.
