Too bad you had to wind down some of the long-time Wihtgusto services albert, but I can totally understand why. On CW we tried to keep costs to a minimum because money doesn't grow in trees. To keep the site running we pay $12 a month (this includes a $2 backup feature that we could probably do away with if we had a second backup source besides @Streetwalrus (so if he's away for example we have an alternative or vice-versa), but in CW case it's made even harder by the fact that two of the staff are paid in Canadian dollars, but the site hosting is paid in US dollars. But basically the Minecraft server had to be hosted on a separate connection (currently running off Juju's internet at home).
I'm glad that Withgusto is staying alive in one form or another, though, but more importantly, I'm glad to see you around again in the community
(Also yeah, @mentions only works if you have 20 posts, same for voting in forum polls and rating posts. Using the embedded shoutbox or sending PMs requires 5, though)
@Streetwalrus: use the main server form and state that you don't want to use the services anymore!
In my case, it's not that $12/mo (which is more like $17/mo in Canadian dollars) is unsustainable for me, since I have a full time job, but in USA university and college tuition fees are 20-100 times higher than in Canada sometimes, which ruins many people, and I often hear that even in rural areas an appartment is very expensive compared to over here. >.<In our cases, we used the basic services with a $10/mo plan (1 GB RAM, single-core, 30 GB SSD and 2 TB transfer, plus the weekly backup service that is $2 a month that once made things much easier to restore the site from a major incident. Back then, none of the staff could perform backups off-site to their computer at home or something, so we had to rely on DigitalOcean's. But now Streetwalrus performs daily backups on his server at home so if, for example, aeTIos decided to do the same, then we could probably do away with that paid service. Besides that we are not using any other special services I think. I also forgot if this is a managed or unmanaged VPS, since I don't run it myself.
