This is about the worst take you could have...
A method of making money? On Arma 3? You're clearly not very smart if you think anyone should run an ARMA 3 server for MONEY... I work a full time job with something called a salary, not sure if you've heard of it before, but that's how I make my money, PhoenixRP is self-sustaining comfortably, but our expenses have been more then our donation goal for over a year yet I don't complain, I'm not upset if we don't reach our goal because we're smart enough to retain money from previous donation goals which we exceed and I'd even be happy to spend my own money on investing in stuff for the community.
If you think this is a profitable business model you are downright stupid and there's no nice way of saying it.
If I spent the time I spend developing the web platforms for PhoenixRP on freelance projects I'd make a decent amount of money, on Phoenix I make 0 for this, I just can't comprehend the level of stupidity, it's actually shocking to read this.
This was a constructive thread until you started spewing absolute shit.
Just to make something public, below is something you may not grasp, it's not a simple 'throw it on a server and its fine' situation, every box below is money and time, each an individual expense, each requires levels of attention, the majority of the below isn't necessary, but we spend money on it because it works and improves the server - bare in mind, the below is about 2 months out of date and there are other servers which have been deployed since but the overall concept is the same. You see it as 'oh he pays for a dedi and web hosting and thats it', yet it's not the case at all... Not to mention every license we pay for, every activation of Windows, development environments, investments when migrating servers etc.
Please do me a favor and never get into business, you'd be bankrupt in a week if you used your money-making concept.
