Can I ask server owners how much money they spend on their server each month to keep it running? My budget is stretched (£8 per month) and although I only have four players on at any one time, and something like 30 plugins with Dynmap being the biggest hogg of RAM apparently, my server host suggested I upgrade to get more RAM. If I was to run a server with 25-30 players which seems to be average for servers in my experience, the cost of running that would be quite big, something like £20 per month of more without donations. The host provider is really good though, the service is top. When I first decided on setting up a server I didn't think about stuff like chunk loading and even plugins and how much memory they use. The package I have at present should be okay for 16 players, but apparently it doesn't go on players alone, but on other factors as well so that you might not even be able to get 16 players on at all. If I had a job it would not be much of a problem but I don't work atm because I am autistic. Just cant put any more money into the server, and now I'm thinking I should be honest and quit and put it down to lack of finances to keep it going. Sad really I put so much effort into it.
