Having been around since July of 2012, the Billy Mays Remembrance Foundation (bmrf.me) is the oldest DayZ private hive still standing. We pride ourselves on being a leader in the DayZ server community, setting examples of reliability with good management on a great backend.

Why should I play on BMRF?
While we are by no means the only high quality private hive nowadays, there are a few reasons you may want to choose us over another community, such as:
- A stable home, we've been here since the beginning. We've seen servers rise and fall, leaving players often having to find new homes. We're backed by a passionate administration team and solid funding meaning we're not going anywhere if the mod dies or standalone/Arma 3 are released full tilt. We will only strengthen by supporting these titles.
- An active and dedicated administration team. We are here to cater to your needs, questions, and concerns 24/7. This is usually by means of IRC support. You'll be able to find an administrator throughout all periods of the day on any day of the week, with rare exceptions.
- Extensive logs. We save your character to a separate database table every 30 seconds, and use these entries as a form of character history. This provides us with more information than an admin map can provide, without being prone to the abuse it can create. We use this log to restore your character to any point in time when needed, or to find cheating. In addition, all sensitive data is stored on a separate drive and automatically backed up to a remote server every 15 minutes for redundancy.
- Combat loggers actually get banned. While we do have a few measures within the game to discourage it, we tackle to problem with good old man muscle, responding to literally every report ever made on the forums regarding combat logging. We're serious about it, and combat loggers really do get banned at a higher rate than what any other server seems to be offering at this time. See for yourself: http://bmrf.me/vbfor...Logging-Reports
To go with all our admin nerd muscle, we have a server box located in New York which reflects how serious we are about our servers. It is one of the highest spec machines money can buy:
Two Intel Xeon E5-2690 processors (sixteen physical 2.9ghz cores on QPI + hyperthreading + turbo->3.8ghz)
96 GB registered DDR3 ECC memory
Dual 180GB Intel SSD's
2TB Storage/Backup Drive
40000 GB of InterNAP bandwidth (20 gigabit backend)
Our primary focus is DayZ Chernarus on veteran settings with crosshairs and waypoints disabled. We also have very popular Origins servers due to our exclusive whitelist and the second most popular Wasteland server in the world at the time of this writing. The most popular custom maps are supported, and we've got a custom Minecraft mod pack too. Overall, there are too many servers to list here in detail, but you can find information about them here:

To get whitelisted and play on our servers right away, check out the quickstart guide on the front page of http://bmrf.me
If you don't want to give us any ad revenue, all you have to do is make a forum account at http://bmrf.me/vbforums/register.php and after confirming the email sent to your inbox, you'll be able to join our servers.
No GUID input is required, though sometimes the whitelist will require an administrator to approve your account based on numerous factors. This is the case is you get the "you will be whitelisted shortly" message when attempting to join a server, and all you have to do is wait for approval. You'll get an email notifying you of this.
If you're having trouble with the process, this thread will probably help: http://bmrf.me/vbfor...whitelist-works
