If we wanted to start our own cloud we would need money. We can't use our ISP's for something like this since it pushes too much traffic and might get some of us booted off our ISP's.

    I'm still so sad about all of this. I keep thinking in my mind that I have to just spend the money myself and perhaps not worry about ever accepting donations, I've invested so much time into this site but it's really time to let it go I think.

    It is with terrible sadness and yet understanding that I came here today to read that Stoptazmo is closing its manga portal. While I understand the financial need to do so, it is still sad to see such a time go by. I started coming to this site 7 years ago, and this place will always hold a special place in my heart and memories. For better or worse, I have seen the drama and the friendships that have emerged from this site. I have been fortunate enough to meet some users from this site as well as stay in touch with others. I am also grateful for being promoted through the ranks as firstly a simple moderator of the help section to eventually a super global moderator.

    Thank you for your years of hard work. I 100% approve of your decision to remove the manga section as it is no longer financially worthwhile. I also understand your desire to withdraw from the manga world in order to advance your career; as I have done the same.

    As a side note, if you need help, I would be more then willing to help. We may be able to mutually help benefit each other with our skills; I am now employed as a professional graphic designer with knowledge of other areas such as html/css/python. PM if interested and I'll show you my work.

    Regardless, I wish you the best of luck on your future projects.

    I'm glad to see your response, especially from an old member. Perhaps some of the other mods might see this thread too and respond. I really can't believe this site has gone on so long, crazy now that I think about it. I'm happy to hear you've made met some good people too.

    It still seems so harsh to just close a site that has been open almost 10 years, a decade. One of the first sites I opened too, which is why even now I want to keep it going but the time really has come for me to perhaps grow up as you say, start saving for a home, doing some real reading instead of collecting Manga.

    Cool to hear you know Python as well. If I know hear of someone who needs a designer I'll let them know about you, but I do not know anyone in any need at the moment, but perhaps in a year or two I will. I wish you all the best as well, thanks for coming and sharing your thoughts.

    We got banned from Adsense Long ago, and a lot of the other advertisements that we did have up paid nothing since our traffic did not lead to conversions. Things are a lot different than years ago, it's no longer about getting clicks, but rather having a sites traffic generate conversions of some kind, and that causes us some serious problems.

    This is a sad announcement indeed.

    I enjoy mingling in the community here beginning way back when the Claymore forums was active with RPs, that was the time I started "unlurking". All things come to an end and I respect your decision to move on with other goals in mind. Goodluck and godspeed with your endeavors.

    I'll link the site up with my dA and MAL accounts and hope it can be of some help to keep the community up.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment. If you could link the site up to dA/MAL that would mean a lot, thank you!

    I have been on this site for a long time though I have never posted in the forums. You can say I grew together with this site - it will always be in my heart. It is sad to see it close but I understand your reasons. I can only say - that you made people like me happy))) So I owe you a great thanks and lots of virtual hugs. So thank you for making such a wonderful site)))

    I find the way to donate to your website is a little complicated, can you make it more simple?

    All you have to do is send money to our Bitcoin address or buy a gift card and use the contact form or PM me with the gift code so I can use it.
