OK folks, to get this thing jumpstarted, I'm going to go ahead and rent/lease/whatever a Tekkit server for the forum some time in the next couple of days. I think the 1GB server will be adequate, what do the interested parties think? I'm assuming a price of $13/month and I'm happy to pay that but will accept donations to offset the cost. ;-) Please contact me BEFORE paypal-ing any money or anything because I don't want to collect more than what the server costs (or just below, leaving my share) each month.
WindUpBird expressed some interest in administering the server. I have NO IDEA what sort of admin burden there is on a Tekkit server (I'd personally like to see "cheat mode" globally disabled) but assuming there is any, I'm happy to hand him the keys if he's interested.
Can I get a show of hands of who's likely to use the server? I'm curious about the rough headcount.
