Agent West: that's really nice - kinda reminds me of these Banksy paintings.

Just a thought, do you have the bricks with a transparent hole? Then we can put some other images behind the broken bricks, add a bit of variety. - I'm thinking on our special days and holiday maps (halloween, etc.)

Those Bansky paintings are awesome! Nice how some artists can take something as plain and boring as a barricade and turn it into something nice.

Sorry, we do not wish to promote your group on Planet MoFo, as it is unaffiliated with Planet MoFo.

That sort of stuff usually goes on billboards - we give billboard space to those that donate something to the rent of the server.

Oh, okay. If you've spoken to optic, it's probably cool - but you should speak with him.

I did say he could do that.
I also said that the grafiti should be good.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

How about allowing everyone to put up nickname advertisements on the four billobards in Planet Mofo?

We have no problem with this - in fact, that's kinda the whole the point - so long as the people we're advertising give us a little donation to keeping the server running.

"Making money" is stretching it. Getting help to cover the costs is more like it. Planet Mofo costs over $70/month to keep up and running and all that money has to come from donations or the admins pockets.

For those of you who are math challenged the cost for Planet Mofo/year is about $900.

$70 a month? What the heck are you doing? Rented space on a server doesn't cost $70 a month.
And that's $840 a year. :mrgreen:

It does when you run a big server like Planet MoFo passion, plus about 50 other servers. We know how much it is a year, thanks.

Well at least it covers your costs.

Keyword over! I put "over 70" because I did not want to put "under 80", which is a range between your too low $840 calculation and the $960 to high calculation. Calculate that and it amazingly averages out to $900. And we are not "renting space on a server", that would not work for us. We rent the whole server and buy a lot of bandwidth.

Ditto. Spazzy would be correct. Our server and we know what it costs.

You are making an awful big assumption that it covers our costs. Please read below (from above)...

Yes, paypal is one of the ways.

Alright, here we go, me and spaz finally got around to actually adding all of these. Between the center cake and the 8 outer boxes, we STILL HAVE TWELVE SPOTS AVAILABLE, so there is no reason to stop submitting new artwork.
Keep at it people. If you want to use your callsign, we will allow it, but it had better be some pretty decent artwork. Witty and humorous (but clean) is what we're looking for.

Here's the list:

Temporal Distraction had an idea for some WWII posters. They look pretty nice.

Spazzy made a couple in the Banksy-Rat theme.

Plastic Tank, We kinda changed our minds about allowing callsigns, and yours should have been up there all this time, but i goofed it up. The filename said plastictank, but the image was a duplicate of r3lax's image. Fixed.

TonyWolfe, yours is lame, sorry.

Zaphod, we tweaked yours a little, to make the shading match better.

Private Ryan, copyright issues, sorry.

Me1, it was my idea to go with the transparent tank... some other mofos really hated that... it's out for now, might return someday.

Bucky, it's surprising how good that looks, in-game.

Ratfink.. Yours was lame, but we made it better for you.

Zippidy-do where did your image go?

TonyWolfe, something is weird with your file's format. We're having a tough time woring with it.

Agent West, two of yours made the cut.

You can see these on mofo port 4299, that's where i test maps before they go on 4200.
It will probably be another day or two until i get them onto the main server.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

Although we've been allowing callsigns - i'd still like to see some more creative artwork! Pictures tell a thousand words. Let's see some fun stencils and images.

If you haven't yet, have a look at some of Banksy's, and other satirical graffiti artist's work, there's a lot you can do. Here's a couple I cooked up for you to get an idea of the sorts of things we would like to see:
