Quote from: Naru on December 04, 2017, 07:21:13 PMJust want to update everyone that for this year we are going to try something new. We are going to keep the donation up all year long instead of just opening near the end of the year. Let me know how you guys feel about this change or do you think it would be better to just keep it close and only open it near the bill date.

Quote from: Naru on January 26, 2018, 07:23:00 PMThis year the bill was $254.28, This pays for the server access and malware/virus protection. In May the domain name is up for renewal and that cost $28.98 for the year.Compare to other sites, this is somewhat cheap. There are sites that cost few hundred dollars a month but this is for dedicated servers. We are on a share server with other sites so our resources is split up between them. Right now this is fine so we do not need to upgrade at all.We only ask for donation because we keep the site clean from ads. I am not the type of person who is going to put ads on this site to save money. There were many years I pay most of the site and only got $100 or less. Like I said before, I do not mind paying for the site but we do not make any profit from doing this and any donation shows me that people are interested on keeping this community alive.I have always said this, if you can not donate, then don't. I am not upset from it. Either way, the site will be paid and I will continue to keep it up.I want to thank everyone who have donated and to anyone who are active members in the community because without you guys, I will not be doing this.
