    Default Server/Donation Status [September 2007]

    As many of you already know we have been having server issues, and the end result was us asking for donations to help cover the cost of additional hardware expenses. FDC does not have any more SATA drives in stock, so we will have to wait until next week for our hardware to come in.

    We currently do an easy 100mbps all day long. This is over 32,000gb’s of bandwidth every month.

    Right now our server expenses run close to $999/m. The ads that we have on our site only pay for about ~$500 on a good month. We have tried almost every sponsor out there, and we are left with little options. Most of the time I am the one paying the remaining server bills, which are normally between $500 and $600.

    No longer can I afford to do this. I know many of you don’t want to see us turn into a site that offers a premium service, and I have one last option, and that’s to try one last time to get donations to start coming in. We tried this before and never made much from donations.

    What I am going to do is this. I am going to start posting exactly what we need each month, and if I have to pay out of my own pocket more than $50 for the server for two months in a row, I am going to start offering a premium service for this site to help cover the server costs, and the costs of upgrades. I have worked on this site for over a year now, releasing updates every two days, I should not have to spend so much money to keep it going.

    I am going to post what we need for this month below.

    September 2007
    Total Server Expenses: $999
    Total Ads Revenue: ~$500
    ----------------------------------
    Need to Collect: $500

    Total Donations This Month: $292

    FUNDS NEEDED: $208 MORE FOR September

    I will update the total amount of funds we need as they come in. If you don’t want to see us launch a premium service, make sure to encourage others to donate.

    HOW DO YOU DONATE? CLICK ON THE PAYPAL BUTTON AT THE TOP OF THIS SITE!

    premium service, usually comes with an added boost. Could be a special download section just for them, or maybe giving them special privileges such as being able to download more manga at once.

    Only found this place a little while ago but really appreciate it. Just put in $10, will try to put in at least that much each month.

    Cheers.
