thanksA sock asking me who I work for? Hilarious. As for the parts that actually matter, I work with both internal and external distribution, the latter involving practically every major player you can name, such as Akamai and Amazon CDNs.
When it comes to how they've demonstrated that you're not exactly the brightest bulb in the box, there's Tidane's beautiful sarcasm—truthfully, painting Aikar as an unquestionable do-gooder was a stroke of genius—but then there's dlsmd outright telling you the sorts of things that FFEvo hosts and serves, and what kind of plans would accommodate for that. Your responding by saying "it's just forums" demonstrates that you don't know dick.
and i dont know every thing he is hosting eather
here hereMy question, to all of the people whining: How much of the $2k/year are you personally responsible for? It's a donation, not a fee. I've probably donated over $500 to ffevo since I joined the community. I don't believe that hosting costs the entirety of the money raised for it, nor would I be terribly surprised if it cost less than 25%. It doesn't change my motivation to donate: RZN has put a significant amount of time into establishing both FFACE and the community/website. If you want to calculate the hours he's spent on it, less what hosting actually cost him, I would be shocked if he even came out with minimum wage for his efforts. Fortunately, none of this really matters, because if you disagree you have an easy option: Don't donate. You can still get your FFACE fix every month if you ignore the little donation panel. You don't even have to come back to the site until next time a structure shifts.
None of this makes w1z's new bot any less terrible, his DDoSing more ethical, or Ashita a less capable program. Just a whole lot of jealous whining.
