Server/Donation Status [October 2008]
As many of you already know we have been having server issues and we are currently out of space on our server. The end result was us asking for donations to help cover the cost of additional hardware expenses.
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 $700/m. The ads that we have on our site only pay for about ~$100 on a GOOD month. We have tried almost every sponsor out there, and we are left with little options. Paypal seems to be our best bet at accepting money and allowing us to continue to grow.
We really need to get people donating. We spend a large amount of time collecting updates and it would be really great for people to donate whatever they can, even if it’s only $1.
I run this site as a hobby and as a student I cannot afford even a $1 loss each month.
I am going to post what we need for this month below.
Total Server Expenses: $690
2x Servers + Site Hosting + Server Management
Total Ads Revenue: ~$100
Need to Collect: $590
Total Donations This Month: $578
FUNDS NEEDED: $12 MORE FOR October
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!
Note: I bought the 2nd server on October 2nd. It has not come online yet as we are waiting on our hard drives which are bigger than they normally stock (1TB) and once they come in we will have our 2nd machine online. We split it with someone else but for what we are paying we have a great deal.
