    Man. Oh, well. What a bummer.
    I'm also from South Africa (and under age). I've been reading from stoptazmo for almost for years now; it's like the whole of my highschool.
    I guess it's time that i stop downloading the manga, and actually paying for it; supporting the mangakas. They are the ones that should truly get the credit. (even though you're awesome as well, Kevin Shiel)

    Charging 1$ per month is really cool. I'd pay if the payment is easy...If there's like 100 people in here, that'll fullfill 100 easily

    If I may add a suggestion, for the sake of this immense collection not going to waste, you could continue to not have a download page, but keep this forum running for a while, make a free account on a file sharing site, and then only make a certain amount available at a time, for say a week. Collect each series into a single .zip or.rar and add series to the account until you are at the max space available for free users. Post on Sunday, delete on Saturday, new comics Sunday. Either start posting alphabetically or get the heavy hitters out of the way first. And keep us informed on here as to which manga are going to be up. It doesn't get you out of the game or make you money, but I imagine it will take very little of your time and people can get the manga they wanted. I've seen file sharing posted several times, but I think doing it in this fashion is most in tune with your own goals, while keeping us satisfied until we find somewhere. Appreciate all you've done, and you have my gratitude for doing it so long, but I ask this last thing of you.

    I've thought of this idea but it would be unmanageable and after a few DMCA's our account would be closed. It might work for a month or two but after that I'd be banned from using all of the various file sharing sites. We have too many chapters, it would be much harder to upload to a file sharing site than FTP. It would also require changes to our DL scripts. Another factor is that there is still no way I can make money and this is the huge problem for me mostly as I now have a lot of debt I am still repaying and need to find some way to make $300-$600/m more than I am now. People just are not donating, they don't see this site as being valuable enough to contribute to. All day today I've invested time into projects I can make money on in the long run and honestly it feels great. It's just time for me to move on.

    If this site is to continue, it has to be in a way that would bring money in. That is the only way to save ST. I only received in the last few months 1 gift card and 3 bitcoin payments, just not enough to keep the site going.

    I'd like to thank everyone else I did not respond to as well but thank you very much for your feedback.

    Is there a way I could contact you about donating the use of a 10mbit upload line and server free? I'm sure you have way more traffic than a 10mbit uplink could handle, but it's a start? I've got some idea on how you could recoup your costs and keep the site running at a potential profit.

    Located in Australia so you'd probably have little issue re: DMCA, as they'd be privately hosted on a machine outside DMCA jurisdiction.

    EDIT: I've been a premium member almost since the first day it was made available, and have never really posted on here - but I'd like to thank you for all the hard work you did - and all the *vast* hours of entertainment your collection, and site helped provide for me over the last half dozen years haha

    Thank you for being in the past a premium member and helping keep the site running. The thing is even with a free server I would not get enough money to keep running this site, ST has always lost money, 10mbps is a little and would do a little good in the short term but I still need a ROI on my time and that is just not going to happen with a Manga site any longer. I have a lot of debt I need to pay and have to invest my time on something profitable. Thank you very much for your offer though.
