    I never see any banner ads, is it just paid for through donations?

    Yes, only by donation. Also, Ian is not out to make profit.

    It's all self-funded by Ian out of his pocket, with donations from some members helping out. :)

    Until up to the last few years, all funded by Ian, now donations from members are covering all bills so far.

    It should be noted Ian has only asked for donations once, last year, and closed them as soon as he'd hit the goal.

    Ian controls a highly advanced AI that locks on the bank accounts of every single registered member and drains minute untraceable amounts of them. That cashflow is going towards an unspeakable project known only as The Device...

    All he would need is $2 per account. That would be more than $1 Million per year! :hushedface:
