    Default Tweleve.org forum downtime / Spontanious Fundraiser

    PLease bear with us, we are currently updating a few things around here and are going to be making some changes too. The forum may be inaccessible periodically we will try to keep these as infrequent as possible but don't worry we are not going anywhere and everything will be ok.

    EDIT: Scroll down for "Spontanious Fundraiser" details

    Anything you are willing to share with us? Will we have to wait and find out ourselves?

    Main objectives are organization and code base stability for anyone who is wondering. We operate a very heavilly modded forum system and we need to do some maintenance and get to a base we can continue to mod efficiently. As far as organization, we will soon be operating off of one database, soeven the att archive will be accesable thru this forum and not call for a second username.

    Things like that

    Plus of course some surprises.

    We have gotten too big for our space, hence the insane lag lately--send us a donation we are gonna NEED it to change hosts.

    Thanks.

    What is Tweleves Bandwidth? How many Megs does it currently take up? How much space do you have? What kind of system are you running? How many people can be connected to Tweleve at one time?How much does it cost to keep something like Tweleve up and running each month?

    Good questions:

    What is Tweleves Bandwidth?

    ~a little over 20 gigs a month on average, not really that big of an issue now.

    What IS insane is our hitcounts. On an average month we do well over 2 million hits. Last month we did 2,383,082 hits. Thats 80,000 per day. Lots of people hitting f5 to look for new posts Too many connection requests for our present situation.

    How many Megs does it currently take up?

    ~As far as physical space, over 500 megs not including mail-again, not really an issue with how cheap storage is.

    How much space do you have?

    ~Currently 15,000 megabytes. (15 gigs)

    What kind of system are you running?


    ~Linux, 2 x Dual Core AMD Opteron Processors (265), 3 gigs of RAM...but all heavilly shared.

    How many people can be connected to Tweleve at one time?

    ~Thats a tough one. It varies, but at the peak of traffic in the situation we are in now, ive seen it lag out with 20 or less people logged on. The value you have requested is based on the amount of database connections available to us. This number varies based on the number of other queries from other sites hosted on the same server we are on. That's the main issue-we are on a shared server and need to have a VPS or dedicated...more on this later...

    How much does it cost to keep something like Tweleve up and running each month?

    ~Well with just hosting/domain costs, we (imo) need a dedicated mySQL server all to ourselves. It is best to have a managed/firewalled dedicated server, but that can run over $200 a month. So the next option is a VPS or virtual private server, we will share still but have our own mySQL server and guaranteed % of system process (basically this means that the server is less crowded than the other--its an upgrade but the best part is the private sql-) which would be around $70 a month. Add say $5 a month for domain costs so an even $75 a month would put us in a much better place--the thing is , we have to come up with all 12 months at once.

    All this and keeping some money for the silly taxes we have to pay on the donations, ship and buy prizes which we love to do, database consultation, food for the TwollarMonger etc...

    Cthree, how much are you looking to raise total?

    ~It would be wonderful to drive $1000. That would put us in a spot to Upgrade the forums and not worry about being broke. Buy a nice prize for the next 12 hunt. If we get more, we'll go dedicated which is the final goal.

    We have recieved some extra nice donations recently that have helped a ton. Yes, you can use a credit card. Every little bit helps! Click here to help us ;D

    You are our only Hope!

    I'll let you all know about the progress here. Thank you so much for your support.

    ~cthree
