    Default Server/Donation Status [December 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.

    December 2008
    Total Server Expenses: $690
    2x Servers + Site Hosting + Server Management
    Total Ads Revenue: ~$20 (Working on this issue before we adjust donation limit)
    ----------------------------------
    Need to Collect: $590

    Total Donations This Month: $629

    FUNDS NEEDED: $0 MORE FOR December
    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!

    How often is the total updated? I donated $70 a few days ago and it's still showing $0 for the total donations.
