As we all know it can be frustrating sometimes to get a server sorted out for game nights unless this is possible via the game, So here is my proposal, and feel free to shoot it down with a all engulfing fireball of death.
Donation supported Community Game server, that we can put whatever game we want on and run it.
Basically very similar to how clans / guilds etc work, This way the server would pretty much always be available when required and would be pretty much on our terms.
Obviously this would have a price each month, and I am aware that some people are unable to donate towards something like this, but for some of us throwing a few $/£/€ isn't a major issue, and gives a lot more control and flexibility.
There are many options out there for hosting, and again this is just an idea.
