Knowledge and well being that you have supported the gaming community
We use services such as uptime robot to monitor and report any service outages and work that is being done to resolve any issue's. These services often times are not free and as such add to the total cost of operation.
Future Server Upgrades
We are continuously looking to improve on the underlying hardware that supports our services. The underlying hardware makes up the largest portion of operation cost and though we are willing to offer a level of hardware out of pocket we are not made of money. All donations given we evaluate the current running cost of the hardware given the current fiscal year and estimate the cost it requires to maintain throughout the remainder of that year. If the total amount of donations for that given fiscal year increases to the point where we can obtain better hardware, we will schedule an upgrade to our underlying hardware bringing the potential for a more stable and/or larger player base. At the beginning of each fiscal year the average user load is evaluated for the current physical server capabilities. If the conditions exist that the current server's capabilities greatly outweigh the average user load and decreasing server physical size would not affect the player's experience, but prolong the longevity of service, a physical server size decrease will be scheduled.
Server Player Limit Avoidance
Our cockatrice server has a limited capacity and with such only a certain number of total players have the ability to log in at any one given time. Players that have been recognized as a donor will be allowed to log in regardless of if the server limit has been reached.
Idle Timeout Avoidance
Our cockatrice server continuously monitors a player's connection and will identify those players that have not performed any actions in client for a period of time. When the set time frame limit is reached the player is forcibly logged out. Players that have been recognized as donor will be allowed to remain online without this restriction.
