    Default Server/Donation Status [September 2010]

    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 32,000gbís 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 itís 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.

    September 2010
    Total Server Expenses: $690
    2x Servers + Site Hosting + Server Management
    Total Ads Revenue: ~$100
    ----------------------------------
    Need to Collect: $590

    Total Donations This Month: $95

    FUNDS NEEDED: $495 MORE FOR September
    I will update the total amount of funds we need as they come in. If you donít 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!

    No, it means Kane has forgotten to post updates again.

    I don't know if it was covered. Usually we fall short of the target and Kane makes up the difference out of his own pocket.
