SteamFriends.com is fully supported by TechConnect and its partners. Nonetheless, it is currently not focusing on creating revenue as it is built on communities and maintained by the people behind these communities. Just like any other community the people behind it do most of their things in their spare time and appreciate it when they get something back from it. This is now possible in the form of donations.
SteamFriends.com tries to bring its community and the communities attached to it the latest innovations on the Steam Platform. One of these projects, for example, is SourceBans, but also, enhancements to the SteamFriends.com website or many other great plugins developed by developers who operate under the name of SteamFriends.com.
Even though SteamFriends.com runs advertisements this only covers running the website, game servers and if there is any money left it is spend helping out projects like SteamBans, SourceMod or HL2 mods.
What is the money spent on?
The SteamFriends.com team wants to keep bringing new and interesting innovations, plugins and anything else to its community. The money that comes in through donations is to make sure that the developers can keep working in an environment that doesn’t hold them back and give the developers something back in the form of games for example. The money is not only spent on developers, but also to continue giving to you, the community, the best game servers to play on. Game servers with the best statistics, anti-cheat possibilities, and serious and reliable administrators.
How much and how to donate?
