Title: The SMW FFH is in danger!
Post by: JJames19119 on September 29, 2008, 11:37:17 PM
For all those who don't know, I Co-own the domain and hosting at supersanctuary.net. Because of this, the SMW FFH is hosted on that same site. It's a pretty sweet deal; 50 GB space, 5 TB bandwidth, and all the works. All I have to do is pay $45 every six months.

Since I only co-own it, I only have to pay $45 every year. Someone else handles the expenses on the other six months. However, this year, this other person can't pay for it...so the hosting is in danger. Unfortunately, I'm in avery tight bind right now and so is the other person, neither of us will be able to pay for it for another 4 months!

So, 72, I give you this option. I'm going to leave a donation link here in hopes that you people are nice enough (or need the FFH enough) to want to donate to it. Normally I wouldn't do this but SMWStuff recently went down and there isn't any other option, I felt this might be a good idea, especially if people care enough about the FFH.

The goal is a meager $45 but since this community isn't large, this might take a bit. I also need it before October 10th otherwise the host will take the site down. I'm not expecting a lot from you guys, I'm just giving you this option so that you can save the FFH if you really need it.

And for the numbskulls that ask (e.g. eeliot), no I will NOT back up the site and hand it over to you so that you can host it on your site. I will not accept other hosting offers, I will not host this on another site, I will do no such thing with anyone else. Donations are the only way to save it, as I'm tired of entrusting things like this to other people I hardly know.

So yeah, this would be the donation link (http://https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donations&business=YNPT8GE78RSS6&lc=US&item_name=Super%20Sonic%20Sancuary%20Hosting&item_number=Servage&currency_code=USD&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF%3abtn_donate_LG%2egif%3aNonHosted). Click it to go ahead and donate however much you wish. You WILL need a paypal account, but I hope that's not too much of a problem for some people. Thanks very, VERY much for anyone who decides to even spend a dollar on this poor little site.

I would like to thank Ylle for his utterly generous donation of the full $45 to keep the site alive. He's truly a magnificent man who's clearly very dedicated to this project and site...either that, or he simply just fights for his friends. Thanks, Ylle!

That...totally didn't look like a set-up. :P
What luck I guess.
It sounded like you weren't able to get $45 in 4 months. :P
