well that was fast.
A Crowdfunding campaign has sprung up to bring Furnation back. They are asking for $5k. As of right now they've raised a couple hundred dollars, enough to bring the old server back online.
That 256GB RAM server is clearly the best option for their purposes. Did Furnation get taken over by Dragoneer??
What is it with Furry sites after getting DDOSed running crowd funding for way over the amount they really need?
Love that they try to hide the server host they are going with yet copy paste the specs directly from OVH's website..
And why do they need a server that large? Social Engine is a horrid thing but is easily ran off small servers even with large communities.
It is somewhat better ran over multiple smaller instances for reliability too over single server infrastructure.
Does anyone have any user stats of this site like total users, average users etc? Would be interesting to see. Alexa rank for past 2 years would be awesome to see.
