    I'd like to thank everyone who attended the LAN - both gaming and socialising - for making it such a success.

    With regards to finances, we made a small surplus of £54.47 for the LAN. This takes into accounts the costs of the dogtags for attendees and winners, Public Liability Insurance and the one off costs for the playing cards and shufflers etc.

    We'd particularly like to thank those who donated money to the server funds in addition to funds and fees. There were quite a few of you and it all helps. Whether it was donating syrup waffle money, giving us your Sterling before you fly off back home or just wanting to contribute, it's appreciated.

    As usual, all monies raised go to maintain the server funds and/or help pay for server rentals.

    Thanks

    Yes, I know it's been a while since I posted so here's a quick precis for you.

    Our bank account balance currently stands at £1,078.84. Unfortunately, my authenticator machine isn't working atm and a new one is one order so I don't have any more information than that.

    Our Paypal account balance is £199.21 (comprising £154.68 and USD $71.59).

    So overall, we have funds of £1,278.05

    Our income is primarily derived from supporting members (currently standing at 77 active and 81 lapsed) and potentially a small surplus from the LANs

    Once again, we'd like to thank all of you who continue to support dMw be it by supporting member, donation or LAN events. All money raised goes to support the community be it our own server, rented game servers, TS, hosting or bandwidth.

    In addition to the above, recent activity also includes upgrading BA4 to 32GB ram (courtesy of Albert) and we purchased a backup USB Drive which sits alongside the server.

    If anyone has any queries, comments or suggestions then please don't hesitate to ask.

    Thank you.

    Hi all,

    We had a surplus at the October LAN and ended up with £295.00 over and above costs.

    The vast majority of this income was from new supporting members (which was a pre-requisite for attending the LAN). Those people have now be badged up with our thanks. if anyone is missing their badge then please let me know.

    The income brings our bank account to just over £1,000 and a paypal balance of £276.65.

    Thanks

    This thread hasn't been updated in a long time although there have been other discussions in other threads before you shout at me.


    Thanks again to everyone who supported us at the LAN. That has added £305 to the funds.

    In addition, Sneaky has donated £25 in lieu of payment for a graphics card - thank you. (There may have been other donations at the LAN but I just get the total figure).

    So I've added both to the bank account totalling £330. TL and OB have paid for their mugs so I think we're totally squared.


    All in all, the server funds are looking in good shape considering we spunked the best part of £3K on a server last year.

    We currently have 85 supporting members (including the ones which renewed at the LAN and which I'll update tomorrow).

    The dMw bank account has £2,364 therein and there's £664 in the paypal account.

    With the purchase of BA6 last year our hardware is good (thanks again to Whitey for hosting it) and we don't think there's major outgoings expected over and above our normal.

    We will have to purchase some new switches for the LAN at some point and we'll let you know.

    Thanks again chaps and chappeses. 100% of what we take goes into the community pot so you're really donating to yourselves!

    More than happy to answer any questions or queries you have either here or on PM.

    Thanks for the update Pen.

    One item of major expenditure not mentioned, which has been on hold whilst funds recover from the BA6 purchase, is an upgrade to our forum software. That will reduce that balance by a chunk. It was planned for 2018, but BA6 put a hold on things, so hopefully that will come on stream again during 2020.
