Hello everyone.

Some members approached me recently and asked if and how they can donate to the forum. First of all, they're highly appreciated. Donations help to keep this place running smoothly and take some of the financial burden to run this community.

If you want to donate, you can use this BTC address: 3BEGzbd98MH3wPcvoXb7APvkkJFEK861KN

You can also DM me privately if you wish to donate in other ways! And once again, thanks a lot to everyone who contributes to the forum.

Sincerely,
RainAndSadness

Maybe you can share some data, about costs and how much it is to run this site. People might be more inclined to donate that way. Kinda like Wikipedia that has that bar thing that lets you know how much they need.

Having been a moderator on another forum I can say the costs are not low. Hosting is pretty pricey. Especially when there's a lot of media uploaded. Data heavy Pic's and vid's. It's in the thousands per year. Some forums run raffles to pay for hosting. Unfortunately I'm not sure how that could work here so donations are essential in avoiding the expense falling on Mods and Admin.

A countdown/up would be a useful feature I agree. The only concern I'd have is that any encouraging factors to donate would be interpreted as conveniently negative to the likes of fixers. Still, needs must right?! Transparency could have a positive spin too. Bit of a minefield is all.
