Hey, King. You already know me a bit, but I’ll explain my situation. You may remember that in late 2012 I started up that little project called “TheD3vine Unoffical TTT” which was originally meant for D3 players. You gave it the veto which is fair enough, and I understand why you did. Well anyways, that project eventually evolved into a separate TTT server called ZND Gaming. We grew over time, and attracted a community of great players and regulars. We kept running for about 6 months until there was a payment issue with Xenon and I decided to move us over to NFO. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to properly warn players about the change and so many of those who didn’t participate actively on the website weren’t aware of the switch and playercount began to dip downhill until I made the decision to close down the server for a bit and decide on a next move.
About a month later we relaunched under a different name (LSU Gaming) with new staff and a fresh start on the server files. I’m currently the main developer for this server and we have a fairly active community and are still growing. Because the old server was getting fairly costly to run we’ve decided to cut costs this time by not hosting a Minecraft server, and using a free webhost at least for the time being. With this box, I think we would be able to expand our server offerings and put it to very good use in our community as it would allow us to bring back Minecraft and host a webserver so we can get a proper forums and site set up for the community again, and possible a TS3 server. We’ve also tossed around the idea of TF2, and CS:GO/Strike servers that we could host in the future and I think having access to a dedicated machine like this would be extremely beneficial to our community and allow us more flexibility as we pick up more and more players. It would also provide a very convenient way for me to continue developing for the server and not have to rely on FTP as the main method of adding and editing files currently on the server.
Here are a couple of links for you to check out about our community.

Thanks a bunch for taking the time to read this. If you have any questions I’m still on your Steam, I believe.
