This is a bump! We run with a 50 player cap, and now have over 2100 whitelisted members with over 4000 registrations and the server has seen more than 9000 visitors! (Over 9000! Yes, I know) Come by, check us out and be amazed!
its been 3 seasons since my ban,and I have not found a server since as good as frantic-me,I wish I never got in that stupid argument,I wish i never even spoke up on it,I wish I could come back home.........tell whiz that i wish I could apologize,and if I could in a way that appeases him,I would........I want to come home.....
Hunter, I'm afraid it's been hacked again. This happened to us last time it was hacked. Everything was gone. Van, Cody, and Juski have probably finally regained control of the machine and most likely EVERYTHING was deleted just like last time. I give it about 3 days until an update and maybe 3 weeks until the server is back up. ~SuicidalShadow13
I'm not sure where you got your information, but this is certainly not the case. The server was barely breaking even, requiring almost $300 a month (see the E3-1270 full machine with 32GB at https://www.nfoservers.com/order-dedicated-server.php), but DemonCatLord thought it was exaggerated and decided to tell everyone I was lining my pockets. This caused an unsustainable number of disputes on PayPal and with no money, there's no server.
Believe me, don't believe me, but that's what happened.
To all frequent visitors of FranticMe- I've heard from someone who had a mod ranking on FranticMe and they have told me that FranticMe will most likely not be back. Don't despair though as he gave me the server website in which most of the regular people play on now. If you'd like the website, just PM me.
No one with any ranking at FM has any knowledge of the specific donation totals I was receiving, except maybe Juski. Some months, especially in the beginning, it had been as high as in the $500 range, and that's when we had contests where I gave away copies of games on Steam, not put it in my pocket. Lately, donations had dwindled, a lot in part to the update and waiting for Bukkit, into the barely breaking even range. On more than one occasion, I paid out of my pocket to keep the server running.
But, DemonCatLord is a scumbag who decided he wanted to ruin it and even decided to steal a copy of my website database because he can't manage to bring people to his server on his own merits. I'm done with the SMP community and just play Tekkit with a couple friends now, but I'll be laughing when something happens to his server like this.
