    Default Server/Donation Status [November 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.

    November 2008
    Total Server Expenses: $690
    2x Servers + Site Hosting + Server Management
    Total Ads Revenue: ~$100
    ----------------------------------
    Need to Collect: $590

    Total Donations This Month: $638

    FUNDS NEEDED: $0 MORE FOR November
    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!

    Default Donated 20 dollars US

    I like your concept, and truth be told, I've been using onemanga.com at work a lot, then again, some of the series that they don't have you do...
    I'm also a student, but I'd like to donate 20 dollars to you. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the donation!. We are working on a major update with over 205 manga series which should be up later this week, giving us an even larger edge We will have 1135+ manga series at that point.

    I know it's not alot but I can donate $10. I truly appreciate your site and all you guys do in providing these direct downloads for us for free with no subscriptions. I will have to donate tommorow for reasons like it's late right now and I'm sleepy lol. But I will donate to hel you guys. Thanks for the manga and I hope you get those missing History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi chapters up soon ^^. I know they exist as I saw them availible on onemanga. That reminds me, if ever someone finds manga chapters you don't have uploaded can we send them to you via email in .zip files?

    Normally I like not seeing ads but in this case I would definitely click ads that appeal to me to help this site out. Problem: I can't see any ads? I opened this site and see one ad at the bottom? Riva mail?
