Cain's Lair needs your help. Cain himself pays for the servers, bandwidth and forums necessary to keep this community going. Donations don't come close to covering his costs, but definitely help.


In an effort to raise awareness and get all of you CLR's to donate, I am going to offer up prizes for a Cain's Lair Raffle.


To enter you must make a donation of $10.00 or more during the month of October. For each donation of $10 you will be given a chance to win (for example give $10 = 1 chance, give $100 = 10 chances).

If you give $50 or more, you will become eligible for the Grand Prize Drawing!!

NO. Cain posted this:


I'll pay the rest and keep 2142 going until November 10th, after that we will see how it goes...

Deadly, as i said in the post "you must make a donation of $10.00 or more during the month of October"

That was your competition last month, this is mine for October :2thumbs:

I believe I sent it in last friday, the 29th of september though. But the donation, according to Cain's thread, is going to the october month.

Sorry if I'm sounding like an idiot, I've been up all morning because of a stupid barking dog and just got off an exhausting day of work.

If you put this on the server load-in screen we would get a LOT of donations.

We'd also get alot of people who aren't really into the community and just want the prizes. While part of this raffle is to raise some funds, a good portion is to give something back to the community.

Wow, sorry man, but if you took it that way... well, I don't want to offend you but I find that VERY STRANGE.



People were saying "I don't care we need money". I was putting in that I'd rather NOT have a 2142 ranked server instead of having one with a bunch of people coming here acting like greedy asshats, like (I believe blackarrow said it) people that pay to get inline for the prizes, caring nothing about us and the community

Different people have different opinions on what they want.

Honestly, the 2142 server is up until Nov 10. How much longer do you think it will be here for? A month more, if even then? While this is a money drive, it will probably bring in enough money for a month or two. However, these prizes can be around for a while. Hence why I see this as a community thing, not just a money grabbing thing.

It will fix money issues on a very short term basis, but do nothing long term.
It will give something to some community members on the short term, and be with them for a longer period of time. :)

I am sure that everyone has their own reason's for being here and that is just part of the diversity of this community.

I am offering prizes out of my own pocket because whatever game we are running I love the community, the friends, and appreciate what Cain does to keep it going.

So please, more donations and less posts :2thumbs:

IMO I don't think we should be bribed or rewarded for donating, because we already are. It's not like we are donating to nothing, we all should pitch in, we are already rewarded with the best 2142 server out there.

Zolutar

True, but I do think the idea of reserved slots for a particular sized donation wouldnt be a bad idea at all.

The way the BF2 server I used to play on did it is this you can make a donation and get on the reserved list for one of the 6 slots or you could choose to make a straight donation or you could set up a subscription for a reserved slot.

Just my 2 cents

Found this server yesterday (maybe the day before). Was kind of choked to see that it was being closed on 10/10 due to lack of donations. I've run servers for other games myself, and lack of assistance is always hard.

Anyways, glad to see that its here till at least November. I'll be throwing in a donation myself shortly.

Keep up the good work :)
