    I'll happily join in also, however imho anyone who contributes should have full admin rights on the server:) (so long as everyone knows what they're doing with console commands etc).

    In my experience that might be chaos. Remember most people wont want (or know) how to setup and control the server. It should be a limited number of people who know what they are doing in my opinion but as with anything I will go with the consensus.

    If you want to be an admin though Smurfin you are more than welcome.

    Agreed, those who want rights should have them. I wouldn't have a clue so don't give any to me!

    As for payment, I will be collecting cash for this project. Could I ask that people email, rather than use PM, as its a lot easier to keep records. My email address is

    Could all those who are paying £17, please email me with the following information:

    . your full name
    . home address
    . daytime contact telephone number
    . forum member name (if applicable)
    . BF2 name (if sorted)

    I will take payment by cheque, bank transfer, cash into account (Nat West). If you state your preference in the email, I will send appropriate details.

    To confirm, should this project not proceed, all cash will be returned. Any questions regarding payment, please don't hesitate to email me :)

    What will be the size of the server? Will it be 16 or 32 players or other?

    I will pay tonight once my internet service gets back up again...I was wondering if I could have admin rights to server also - OK I've not had previous experience, but I'm a quick learner and won't make a change unless I'm 100% sure I know what I'm doing. Cheers!

    Its a 32 player server. I have added your name to the admin list. We are still 1 short. I have send a PMs to the two outstandings people who previously expressed an interest. No replies from them as yet. For those that have already signed up it might be worth asking your friends so we can make sure we fill the last slot.

    We can always take more than 12 but the costings have been worked out on at least 12 signing up.

    Assuming the server will be ff on Ill be up for it,and Ill sort the money out tonight.

    I know you said you may be passwording the server but I believe as soon as you password it,the stat/ranking is turned off so you may want to check that.

    Another point which may sound stupid is you have to be careful that you dont have too many active admins changing settings/maps ,etc ,from previous experience this can almost be as bad as having no admin at all(but with that in mind,I would like admin rights as well :p )

    I think we should limit admin rights to a couple of people until at least we are up and running smoothly.

    Friendly Fire on ? Well thats down to what the other people want but I certainly dont have a problem with that, I cant see anyone else having a problem with it either.

    Well that was my point earlier in the thread. I feel strongly there should be a limited number of admins so there is accountatbilty. Otherwise like you said anything can happen. Too many cooks spoil the broth so to say :rolleyes: To have 12 admins would just be ridiculous especially if people dont know the commands etc, it could just end up being a disaster.

    So people dont think I`m being heavy handed on this I am more than willing to forgo my admin spot. I think 4 admins in 12 registered users is more than enough to be honest that should mean that there is one on most of the time when people are playing. But as always I will go with the concensus on this. Everyone thats paying should have a say; but it needs to be clear to have your say dosnt mean you need to be an admin especially if you are not familiar with the server setup.

    Someone suggested this. Actually I dont believe its the best way forward. It should be possible to gurantee slots to specified Battlfiled 2 user IDs. People paying will have this setup as such. Its important that the server is open so as much as possible its full. However if a paying user trys to join and its full, a non paying user will be booted so they can join the server.

    This is what I personally envisaged; this is a normal setup in most private server setups. Passwords will be a messy way of doing it; personally I can’t see it working (People giving passwords to friends, it getting on on the forums etc)

    We want their to me limited public access to the server - this is critical as a full server is usually much more fun. However whatever we decide it will be setup in a way that those paying will always be able to get on when they want to play.

    Yeah, good for me. Means we all have to think a bit more before blowing crap up.

    Fair enough - take me off the list. All I was thinking is that if I happened to be the only registered user at a given time, then I might want the settings changed. I wasn't planning to do it willy-nilly. But by the same rule, I'm not that fussed either, so I'll step aside.

    Excellent - I didn't actually realise this was how it worked. I'd be mighty p'd off if I couldn't get into the server 'cos it was full! Sounds good... (I want to play now!)

    Would it be possible to make the battleiefield 2 server info a sticky on this forum,

    so other users can see it and join in (i know anyone can join the server) but would be best to have AVforum members ahead of just anyone so we know whos who etc :)

    @ Kopite4Ever we already have 12 people if we could get upto 16 (which we can easy) we can even have a AVforums team taking on the rest :)
