From the donations page.....

Thank you for taking an interest in contributing to CCS. The creators of this site are dedicated to supporting the Close Combat community. Specifically, our primary goal is to promote and facilitate more players to play Close Combat on and offline. We do this by creating guides, participating in forums and providing a place to download Close Combat mods. Since the sites inception, we have had over 15,000 players and modders join up from over 90 countries. Please be assured that this site is in no way donation dependant, nor will it ever be. It is privately sponsered by members in the community. Your donation is simply a way to say thank you for our services, and to the community for thier contributions. The donations are applied fully and directly to the bill that we pay every August.




 

Hey guys...

   I want to thank everyone who has donated money to the site since 2005. For seven years I have accepted your donations and put them squarely onto the bill, year after year. For those seven years the bill was about 80$ per month, with a little bit extra for registering a few domain names. Now that CCS has moved to a new server, costing me a mere 11$ per month, I have decided to stop accepting cash donations.

  The original message at the top still rings true, CCS was never donation dependant. However, what those of you who donated did was alleviate the stress of coming to terms with a yearly bill and made it known to me you appreciated all the work behind the scenes.

Thank you everyone!

Mooxe ,

you have earned the respect of  CC community all these years.

It is obvious once more that this has not been done by accident.

(Excuse my lame English)

Mooxe,

So often initiatives such as these are taken with the best intentions by a small number of people or a single individual but then peter out and die a death nobody will notice. Luckily CCS has so far survived and we have got YOU to thank for it. I know what it is like to be one of the pillars of a small community of enthousiasts and I know how much time and commitment goes into it. Which is why I have always been impressed by your explicit statement to cover all costs if necessary. So, I thank you for your continued commitment!

It has occurred to me, and some others, that if this site is to persist at least another 6 years (to the end of Win 7), new site software will be required.

The current software has aged to a point, were it is vulnerable to exploits, spammers, and roque scripts, that have resulted in many of the sites features being in "lock down" mode, because the features themselves cannot be secured from the ever-growing and more sophisticated threats. Surely, the time involved in managing the site to protect its data, has risin over time.

To make this software (and its subsequent installation) a possibilty, might require that the option to donate to the site be re-instated.

If new site software cannot be obtained or implemented, IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME, before the time required to maintain or defend the site, cannot be obtained.

In addition to new site software, the presentation of the site needs to change as well, in anticipation of the closure (or end) of 2D CC game development. Focus needs to shift from major mods, to current re-releases of those mods, and how these are adverstised and presented to forumites when they visit the site.

Apart from donating money, perhaps all of us should find ways to donate our time to the development of an all-together brand new site, since it would seem that the 2D games are viable into the far future.

Hopefully, because of what the content is and few hits the site gets this is a site that misses most of that stuff (except some spammers) STWA that seem to get everywhere with incessant adds.

Thank you from myself also Mooxe for everything.

I am kind of hoping that this software gets so old people wont remember or figure out how to hack it.

The donations were reinstated a few months ago. My attempt at going with a cheap web server failed. You get what you pay for, and that was a ton of downtime.

If this sites focus is going to change to the new versions, we need someone with a passion to make the changes or make a new site entirely.

I have lost a lot of interest in CC over the years, including maintaining the site. I am keeping the site online though because you guys are all still using it. There is still a massive amount of bandwidth leaving this site to mod downloaders, I am sure there's many forum lurkers as well. I am basically just keeping the site on life support and trying to patch the boo-boos when they show up. If new major files are released, like the last three mods in beta version, I will add them and that's where I draw the line.

If someone wants to create a new site, with a new focus I am all for it. Maybe it will help reinvigorate me to play some CC. I would love to see a new Close Combat site.

Right, but as long as this site remains, starting another, would just be a beeg time waster.

After all, THERE IS another site for CC and that is the one that is sponsored by Matrix and Schrecken. You can get most of the old mods there as well.

So, what sets this site apart from the others, is the culture within the site that was established over the years.

Maybe you still enjoy the maintenance, without realizing that. Had it been moi, I would have reduced it to a FTP server by now.  Laughing   ...  just kidding ya

Surely you can admit, that the lurker community (the largest segment), must derive some entertainment from logging in to watch the lifers stick it to each other on a daily basis.  Laughing

Its like the low end of reality TV.  Wink  

So ya, it would be cool to have a new focus. You don't have to ditch the CC5 related content to do that.  Exclamation

I wouldn't mind starting a CCMT site, but I just don't have the connections to the proper Matrix types. And any site dedciated to CCMT would have a VERY SMALL fan base.  Laughing  Wink  AND ... I believe CC 3D is going to be modern, oui.  Question

In August of 2004, Zappi, Homba, Bambam887, RedScorpion and MOOXE all pitched
in to create this Close Combat site. I would to thank all the people who have visited and
found this site to thier liking. I hope you had time to check out some of the great Close Combat
mods and our forums. I'd also like to thank all the members of our volunteer staff that have
helped over the years, and all our users that contributed to this site!
