Nov would never bring it up himself, and he will not be pulling the plug anytime soon i suspect, but if you value this place it is not showing on the donations thermometer at the bottom of the forum page....

When my younger bro gets back from Florida mid week, I'll get him to use that newfangled Paypal thing. Don't get your hopes up for getting shitfaced at the weekend, Nov. You won't get drunk with five English quideroons.

Thankyou for the plug rodin and thankyou to everyone who donated, much appreciated. And for those who havent, as the donations module says, being an active member is a positive contribution and much appreciated also.

Our hosting is modest compared to the big sites, but its done ok for us, and with some recent tweaks we've managed to improve the performance a little, even with large influxes of guests hitting the site through various searches as our search engine presence increases. Frog did a few of the mods some weeks back and ive done some as well. There are still a few more things that can be done to further improve the situ, and perhaps avoid annoying slow downs and resource limits as much as possible.

We have a good amount of room to spare disc space and bandwidth wise, so hopefully we can stay with what we've got for the forseeable future as its cost effective, and keep those so called resources in check.

I will be resetting the annual server target module soon so it covers the next period which is june 2016 to may 2017.

Site is not for profit btw and never intended as such.. thats why there are no google ads here and such. And i have enough on my plate without wishing things from websites or wanting to make profit off fellow truth seekers.. this place was created by the three co-founders as a platform for freedom of expression, as we ourselves for one were frustrated with the lack of it in a number of other places, not about making a buck, thats how we felt then and the two remaining founders still do. So the donations are just about covering costs.

To host an ever growing forum with an ever growing database (that we own the content of, unlike 'free' forums) does require, at the minimum, the hosting plan we have... thanks to innohosting for being very stable, excellent uptime, and going above and beyond with tech support when we have needed it.

So, how do these forum things work, nov? Do you rent storage space with an online company, and the more images and vids that are posted, the costlier it gets?

We have a hosting account with an online company yes, but it has a set total amount disc space available to us (how much stuff is uploaded to it by us).... and a set bandwidth limit per month, which is how much people use the site, how much juice is pulled if you will.

We are still within the limits of the plan we have, so it doesnt get costlier as the site is used and grows in the way you mentioned... at some point though we might have to go up a notch but were not close to that yet, still some room to move... cant see us outgrowing the plan we have in the next year and even beyond, massive membership growth spurt aside.

The images and vids are not part of the site, obv the vids are (usually) on youtube... images typically hosted elsewhere and just display here (hotlink) ... and we dont have file upload enabled for members because of our modest hosting, unlike some well to do sites. If we had file upload enabled (eg images) then theyd be on our server, increasing disc space used and bandwidth, and resources.

Which is why its turned off and i suggest peeps use imgur or similar if they have a pic (and it isnt already hosted somewhere online)

Though the vids for one, the way they were embedding before my latest tweaks, do drain what our webhost refers to as resources, as well as bandwidth.. theres a certain pull on the site of various tech stuff, and when the site hits those limits its slowed down, or an error page displays, so anything i can do on the admin side of it to reduce that is always good.

If I had an active paypal account then I would donate a tenner or something. I just don't want to give all my personal details paying by card.

I'm pretty sure I've got around 20-30 quid sat in an old paypal account somewhere from my ebay days a few years back. I stopped using it once I stopped using eBay and have lost the log in details of the account. If I manage to find the log in details then I'll gladly donate the money to here..

I'll go through some old notes today to see if I can find the log in details.

Paypal is just the same, from my pov.
That's also the reason why I can only send an envelope with a piece of printed paper wrapped in tin foil in it ...

It would be good if there was a more anonymous way to donate, id prefer if there were other ways and not just via paypal, ive discussed it with frog, there are some other things apparently, that he brought up, but we didnt get too far into it as we were both quite busy.. even bitcoin is a possibility.. i dont know much about it though but i think there is a way via bitcoin.

i very well understand the desire for privacy and have great respect for that as does frog.. paypal makes it easy but im open to other suggestions of course.
