Donated again ! Didn't catch the thing until I saw the thread today. Subsilver2 theme has the "Active Topics" link, which I'm using all the time, while prosilver theme has the donate button. I need both ! 8-)

$2600 a year? Have you looked into Amazon EC2? Surely they would have some sort of a plan capable of hosting this site, there's not too many members... My dad pays around $100 a year in 3 year increments to host his site, though it may have less traffic than this one.

It's a possibility, but at a glance it looks like it's a lot of work to set up and configure as well.

Again coming from my dad, he describes setting it up as "trivial" and says that running a website the size of Nekochan (encompassing blog, forums, wiki, etc) would probably be around the $100 a year I estimated. The main complexity in Amazon setup comes from the sheer number of add-ons, options, and features you can add. If you want, you could make a free account which gives you quite a limited cloud server but it would be enough to get a feel for the service.

I just don't have the time right now to sink into a project like that. You're under no obligation to donate - it's just an option for people that want to assist.

Not a problem, I'm considering donating. Just making a suggestion for if you want to reduce operating costs, you don't have to follow it if you don't want to.

Link is still open guys, toss a little Christmas cheer into the bucket! Can't remember what Pete said was the yearly cost for the forum uplink but I know it was a lot more than the 500USD that's currently been raised... :roll:

Last time Pete left it up until it hit the target. You would prefer another target, a military target? Then name the system! :lol:

Uhm, I can't donate $20 on Friday. I have to go see how they mocked up Grand Moff Tarkin in that new movie...

Did they actually do that? I just looked at the full cast credits on imdb and he wasn't listed. But then if his character was all cgi I guess they wouldn't have to list him, but wouldn't they have to get permission from his estate to use his likeness? Either way I don't think they should have done it; caaaaaaah-reep-y! :shock:

From what I have read, that's exactly what they did. I have no strong feelings about them doing it, I'd just like to see the results...

Hey, somebody go donate! We're getting off-topic here... ;)
