Donations for 2019
#1
Hello, everyone.

Big announcement to make regarding donations:

A couple of domain names pointing to these forums will need to be renewed this April. As you know, they can be a bit costly apiece, and I don't always have the financial flexibility to pay for them myself. Therefore, it's just a reminder that you're more than welcome to chip in via this year's donation drive. I can determine whether or not the donations would be substantial to increase the longevity of the domain names by an extra two years each, but that will cost more.

On top of that, I'll have to pay for our hosting in April 2020. It's still a bit of a long way to go, but I'd like to have funds set aside for that as soon as possible. This place means a lot to me, as well as to the rest of you who read this announcement. Whichever amount you choose to contribute, it's very much appreciated.

You can send a donation by checking the top header for its section or by clicking here.

I plan on editing this post later with the amount that is needed.

Thanks!

P.S. The forums will be taken offline on March 7, 2019 (10:30 PM PT) for maintenance work, so don't panic. It can take up to two hours or so, depending on any issues that I find beforehand. If you MUST grab my attention, you can check this thread for more information.

Thanks to two donors from earlier today. Smile

Remember, chipping in is just one way to show appreciation for this forum. Just lurking here daily is enough to keep me going. I just have to take care of hosting and fees, which aren't cheap. I'd never place ads on here, ever. All publicly posted information is freely accessible without limit.

Just reminding everyone that I'm going to be renewing in about two weeks. If anyone else still wants to donate, then feel free to do so.

Once again, thanks for the continued support. Smile

There, went ahead and renewed the domain names. Should be good until 2021.

Thanks to those who donated this time!

Sure, you can do that anytime you wish!

Next year is when I have to really worry about staying on top of our dedicated hosting expenses. Almost three hundred dollars by estimate, but it's biannual.

We reached the hosting cost very quickly last time thanks to everyone's collective contributions, shouldn't be a problem again when the time comes, especially with the site continuing to grow. Big Grin
