How much did your latest upgrade cost?

Ian (Mr AO )

You've just upgraded your server and you've spent money and a lot of your time doing it. Can I ask how much it cost? I've been a Premio member in the past and I'm wondering whether I should donate a bit more cash to help you maintain this site. I have no idea how much revenue is required to keep a site like this going. A bit of insight would help

Wave Re: How much did your latest upgrade cost?

Hey Alfa GJ,

We have spent more money, we really needed to but we have a very nice server now. it seems to me that we need to upgrade every 1-2 years so I guess itís a nice problem in a way!

This site has been here for many years now and hopefully for many more, we spend money every month on several areas of the site but the server is more noticeable to you, I'd say only sign up to the club if you want to help support AO and what it is doing or if you want to join the club and receive better features/services, would never refuse assistance but you have the choice, we have never forced people to sign to the club, we have also never thrown it at you with popups and banners (Our site is very clean) we simply rely on re-subscribing members and new club members.

Anyway, thank you for thinking about the background stuff, all 26 members of staff are working very hard behind the scenes to help grow AO in as many stable directions as possible, if you can and want to help us do this, please visit the club pages.

Regards,

Ian
