Donations.... maybe?

Post by anonymous_object » Tue Apr 01, 2008 2:52 pm

Update:

Shuushuu has grown substantially over the past year and has been moved to a new server with high bandwidth capacity to accommodate the increased usage. Unfortunately, this new server is also quite expensive. >_<

Server costs for shuushuu have risen from $130 to about $200/mo. While in the past I haven't made much of a deal of donating, it has become quite expensive to operate shuushuu.

Donations haven't quite kept up with the increased costs >_< For example, in November '08, there were no donations :( All server costs fall directly to me in that case.

I would like to remind users that, if they are able, even a small donation helps as they can quickly add up from our strong fan base :) Just click the donate link on the main page to send a Paypal donation. If users have ideas on how to raise donations, please let me know. :wink:

P.S. I have considered doing a donation drive to try to raise server/bandwidth money for the entire year and be done with it. Kinda like Wikipedia's Fund Drive. Any thoughts on this?

A long time ago (2005), I had adsense ads. My account then got banned. Some one click bombed the site or something. They won't let me rejoin. Yahoo Publisher Network doesn't want to let me in their beta either.
