StopTazmo Latest News
At the end of this month we will be removing all Manga from our site as I no longer have the time to run this site and have chosen to move on to other things.
We have been open since October 2004 and have consistently uploaded updates every 2 days for many years. For the last few years we have not been breaking even and have reached a point where I have decided to move on. I've invested a great deal of time, fetching updates every morning and evening and it has been hard to lose both time and money over the past few years and am very sorry to send each and every one of you this announcement.
At the end of this month we will no longer have any Manga on http://stoptazmo.com/as I am simply going to move StopTazmo to a shared hosting account and delete all of the Manga. I will be keeping the forums online at least through June and perhaps longer if there is still activity as I would love to keep the community going and shared hosting is relatively cheap but I can no longer keep this site running.
I would like to explain my decision a little further. Every single day I spend time gathering Manga and every month we lose money. At one time I was spending an hour a day,although due to the server termination recently this has dropped to about 15-30 minutes, about 15 hours at most per month. As many of you are aware everything has a cost / benefit ratio, and 15 hours * $8/m comes to about $120/m for time alone. Even the last few months very few people have donated, even a small gift card. I am no longer a teenager and must work on projects and websites that will further my career, to help pay the bills, my own home, my own car and I've simply decided that moving on is the best thing for me.
I hope though that many of you will continue to remain active and post on the forums. If there are any suggestions on what forums/categories/subcategories we should create to help attract visitors I would be open to the suggestion. Any comments/feedback would be appreciated.
UPDATE [May 23, 2013 9PM PST]: I just removed 200 series or so. I did this so that the site can load a little quicker since right now we are maxing out 10mbps, which are host capped us to since we were using so much bandwidth. I wish I did not have to, but no donations coming in so this is how it must be.
