Downsizing Zombie Fortress to cut back on costs

Just a heads up to our regular ZF fan base out there, but I have recently talked with Stephen about cutting down on server costs (because we just aren't getting the donations that we need), and with only so much money in reserve, I have asked him about changing the max players allowed on the server at once. This means we would go from a 32-man ZF server down to a 24-man ZF server. Some may not like this idea, other may love it, but it should save us about 8$+ a month. (so now instead of meeting a goal of $45.00 a month, we'll probably need like $35.00 instead...). Now as far as I can tell, the change won't happen until the next billing period (which is like October 1st). So be on the lookout for it.


Have questions or concerns? Join the forums and post in the Team Fortress section, or just add one of the ZF admins on steam (SanVich, Murbuto, Conan, Kaitou).


And just one last bit here: Please, if you like/love our server, consider donating to it. 5$ is the minimum to get donor status, and if enough people donate 5$ each, we can easily cover the server's costs. Not to mention you get some pretty cool donor benefits (purely cosmetic!) to make you stand out in game. Thanks for reading!
