What do you mean "forced onto"?

Is it because of hackers and unscrupulous activities made against your site, that it costs more than 15$ ?

 

I am asking because I created a website based on the same reasons yours was started.  I need to know what I will be facing.

On a shared server, you are literally sharing resources with other sites, depending on your host it can be as many as 100 other sites. When you run a site like this with all the uploading and downloading and dynamic features like blogs and chatrooms the resource load gets intensive. The result was TESA would start hogging server resources and to prevent the other sites we shared space with from crashing, the host would shut us down to release pressure. The bigger the site got the more down time we were experiencing until it was like, daily down time. The site was simply too big and too active for a shared server, it needed it's own server where it could have all the resources all the time. Its not an issue we experienced overnight, it was about 3 years in that it started to be a real problem so if you're just starting out, depending on whether or not your site takes off, it wont be an issue for you for sometime I would wager :)

We're about $100 short this month folks, if you can make a donation or if you've been thinking about upgrading your account, TESA could use a boost!

We appreciate your support! :highfive:

Rider, it pains me to say that I`m in kind of a pickle for the next couple months. My renewal is coming up and I`m not even sure I can swing that. :doh: I`m hoping the membership steps up this round. So sorry but... my hands are tied and foot nailed to the floor.

No worries Don, I'm there too or I'd cover it out of pocket myself :ok:

TESA's membership always comes through for her I'm sure we'll get it squared away :)

 Thanks Rider.  What hurts is that... things I learned here helped me progress in my RL job. It`s only right, and fair that I give a portion back .. and I will .. once I get past this hurdle.

Hey folks, time for TESA to pay her dues again ($200), and on top of that we still need about $65 to finish upgrading the site plus $40 for license renewals so if you have some pennies to spare, please use the donation form on the index to send some love TESA's way. We really appreciate the continued support of our membership and will do our best to serve you for years and games to come. Thank you!

The TESA Team :tesa:

I'd help, but I'm tight on funds as is. :/

So am I. The only help I can provide is adding content and advertising for this place. ;)

I am confused :-) Are you responding to my post or IronBlockGames'?

Does this mean TESAll is rich, fat and lazy :-)

No, it means that I cannot help by giving money.
