Guys, let's start a cult to help out Ian.
I tried. The ursine didn't take kindly to it.
Now THAT would really get the taxman motivated. Unless Ian can prove that he's making >$10,000,000 a year, is a registered Republican, and runs a GOP Superpac.
Just mentioning that the locked thread advertising the now complete donation drive has lived on past it's siblings by hiding in the maps and graphic forum. Seems to be gone from the other though.
Only the True Admin denies his divinity!
I just want to say that I fully intend to donate in a few months when I get a credit card.
Does this mean the end of the "how is AH.com funded" threads", which are some of the funniest things on the site? If so,
Nah, just that we now have to tack on "...and Ian also accepts member donations too" at the end.
How is it that you get all these cool smilies and I don't?
Courtesy of @Zagan, there's a zip thingy of them here
Is it still possible to sign up for monthly donations?
Go To Hell
Go Directly To Hell
Do Not Pass Go
Do not Collect $200
So, now, how much has been donated?
Can we get an update on how its going?
The site should be funded until mid-2019, thanks to the continued generosity of monthly donors!
It's been a while since I did an exact count of the total number of dollars collected, but right now we have 16 monthly donors, which brings in about $75 per month (a bit lower than 80 because of paypal fees and such). This covers about half of the site's expenses, which are still around $160 per month.
Basically, when I originally did the donation drive I hoped it would hold us to the end of 2018, but my guesstimate is that it'll last another six months after that.
We do need to move the site to a new server, but I'm hoping I can do that without raising costs. So in this case, no news is good news!
Space, speed, or some other reason?
The current one is having issues with crashing.
Ah, that. Good luck finding a more stable server!
Why not using Patreon for the expenses? This site is well worth it.
