Privacy Aware Providers

Well, yes but the details can be faked, if wanted.
Even FraudRecord could fall for it, so without a payment method like verified paypal its a lot easier.

Besides, yes you can get preactivated verified paypal accounts somewhere… but still.
SMS verification, same stuff, getting a free sim, done.

I was thinking about, adding a Proxy check to the submit form, that could help a bit.

Definitely true. Though, with the details being manually reviewed and verified, it’s pretty easy to tell when stuff is faked. And I automatically reject any apps submitted via proxy/vpn.

Expected as much. Sad to hear. Had much potential. Good luck with your projects to come though :slight_smile:

Not to speak of the one Story we had, you can run Ad’s on Gameservers.
My hope was, that these people at least Donate 10%.

No one did, we had like 5 People running Ad’s on the Gameservers.
One of them even made 30$ a month, from a free Gameserver.

The guy told me “I did not make 30$ in profit, since I spend it all”.
I was like broke after that.

TLDR: We disallowed Ad’s on all servers, suspended these ones, until it got removed.

Sad story, actually. Free has to fight with lots of abuse. Manual verification definitely is a must unfortunately (which ruins the fun as it is more work for you for again nothing in return). There are forums like sponsorboard though where you could decide to support a certain project.

Our budget was low and we chose flokinet.is. But for now the server is incredibly slow.


#27

Pure coincidence.


#28

Cheap. Fast. Reliable.

You can only have two.

Which loc?

Quick, someone register serverslowforbudgetlow.com or something along those lines.
