for a long time i have spent way more then i can afford on server fees, but for what i spend in 3 months, we can have our own server free and clear
i know how much this site means to everyone and how much you value honest info
i have been spending 3/4 of my income over the past year-2 (since couple months after site upgrade, the cost went up dramaticly over 1st few months as i realized what a site this large would require)
i need to be helping my family more with what im spending on the server right now, so i really need to reduce what im spending on the site and trying to live off 200 a month so i'm hoping some of you who appreciate the site can help contribute whatever you can
if every visitor who drops by donated 1$ or more we'd have it in no time
if anyone was able to donate a few hundred it could be paid back over a few months..
you know i don't mind spending 2/3 of my income on keeping the community going. when i can help you avoid costly mistakes, helping you is all the reward i hope for, but i need to spend less on the server now and help my family thats helped me so much instead.
if we can pull together enough to purchase a server my site costs can drop from 3/4 of my meager income to 1/6th
we have 5 people living off 1 income so really need to put some of what i spend on the site into helping pay the bills
please consider donating anything at all so this site stops being almost impossible to afford. (it is so huge it has fairly high requirements before people start just suggesting cheap hosting alternatives, i have spent 6 months trying to find any more affordable alternatives, buying our owns the only solution)
i can manage 1/3 of the costs myself i think
im hoping if the tens of thousands of you who use the site, a few hundred or so can spare a dollar or more
you know i'd sell my blood if i had to to continue helping you the way i do...
this way i wont have to
