    Default Server/Donation Status [June 2009]

    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.

    June 2009
    Total Server Expenses: $690
    2x Servers + Site Hosting + Server Management
    Total Ads Revenue: ~$100
    ----------------------------------
    Need to Collect: $590

    Total Donations This Month: $634

    FUNDS NEEDED: $0 MORE FOR June
    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!

    Thank you . The last few months I've lost about $200 and I cannot keep losing money so every bit does help.

    Bandwidth costs a lot of money I hate to say.

    I'll try and help cause I'd really hate to see this site go. You've done a really good job with it.

    pitched in a few. now that i know there are donations (I'm on here very irregularly) I'll remember to keep helping out.


    EDIT:

    actually, i just realized there is such a thing as premium membership.

    can you just apply my payment to that, and set it up to renew every 3 months like it's supposed to? that way, i won't forget. or do you need me to redo it?
