OK There is a new found clan called the Tacticts Opps. If anyone can give us a server for bf1942 and a server for bf2. One of those would be fine you dont have to give us both of them. We would make you an admin of the server and a clan leader. Thanks and bye.

yhatsman If anyone can give us a server
GIVE you a server? C'mon, my clan paid thousands for a server and also a fee per month for server hosting and TS etc.
As suggested, get each member to put some money aside each week till you have enough, it's an old concept I know, but in case you missed it during your formative years, it's called saving up.

ASKING FOR A SERVER... Most server providers recieve countless requests for sponsorship. Here are some pointers that may help you out.
Provide your name, email, phone, organization's name, organization's website.
Make an offer, not a request. Requests always start out with "We want" or "We need", but to be blatently honest for a second.
Whoever is reading your request has never met you, and is probably more concerned with their current issues & customers than your needs.
Start off with what you have to offer them should they be able to assist you in some way. Move to what you're hoping for later. You stand a much better chance of getting any response this way, than simply saying "Give Me Give Me", and are going to be standing apart from the majority of submittals to start with.
Be Personable How do you think Joe @ SuperServers is going to feel when he receives your email, which is also sent to 20 other Game Server Provider's (aka GSP)? Can we say "Delete!"?
Take the time, and learn about the company that you're contacting. Get to know them a little.
Who should you be contacting? What is their name? Are you spelling it properly? Have you talked to them before?
Remember. GSP's can have dozens, hundreds, or maybe even thousands of clients. It's not possible for them to know who everyone is right away, or to remember who they've talked to all the time.
Another point of interest is spelling. Treat this as a business proposal, because that's exactly what it is.
Business Proposal!!?! You may not realize it, but your request for sponsorship truly is. Game servers cost very real money to run and they charge very real money to rent them. If they don't make money at the end of the day, there's no food on the table. So if you want one free, what you offer must be worth at least what the server costs.
What should I offer? GSP's receive a lot of sponsorship requests. If you don't stand out, you don't stand a chance. Take some time to create a unique offer.
Everyone offers site banners, IRC, server name, etc. These are very ordinary offers, and probably won't get you anywhere by themselves. Here's a bit of a breakdown.
For most games right now, a 12 player server runs +$30 monthly. Site banners will at best average (and that's pretty low). For banners to cover the cost of a server, you would need 200,000 views per month, or around 6,500 per day. An average clan site gets 200 - 600 per day, so site baners are worth about $4 -> $6 per month.
PAYING FOR A SERVER... I would strongly recommend that if you are going to pay for a server, you go with an established company.
A few things to look for are: Does the company offering the service own their domain name? A server host that is merely a sub-domain ( like subdomain.providerdomain.com) is probably just reselling a bigger service provider for a markup and probably isnt going to have absolute control, 24hr tech support, etc. They also may be subject to loss of bandwidth at times of high traffic.
Are they reputable company? Even if your not going to pay for a ranked server, is the company an 'EA trust' provider, in that, they can offer ranked servers as well as unranked. This is a good benchmark for choosing a solid server provider.
Is the website proffessional, established and active? Lots of fly-by-night companies will front themselves as server providers, get your cash and close the doors.
Hope that helps a bit
