During this time of need which I know you also trying to keep this site running for us, if it is going to cost you extra, maybe we can think about that when this whole thing is over and everyone resume back to their normal lives and have normal jobs. I reduced from $30 to $5 dollars now wish I can give more. Because during this time it is really helping me, this site, keep my sanity, XD, so my little contribution could help you keep this site running. But for now, I am using my laptop so I don't need a hosting site for my pictures. But if it is going to be part of your monthly dues, then cool but if it is going to cost you extra. We'll just keep it on our wish list for safekeeping until most of us can contribute more.
set up a donation spot or have an easy to access link to it someplace you never know who might feel generous. Put a monthly goal up though so people aren't forced into a subscription if they don't want to be as that can discourage some people. Give both options and rewards for both. not sure what the rewards might be. I remember being part of other sites and rewards were digital cards that you couldn't do anything with but people liked to show them off. They were usually anime characters and music artists. Not sure if that makes sense. Just an idea or suggestion.
Anyway I wish you luck
Another idea to help the site gain some interest with this users is a blog or something introducing new people. I'm curious to hear about how other people are doing and their various talents. Just thoughts to spark interests in donating and donating in general. Have a good day.
AarinFantasy I don't know if that site still exists but I know those anime cards you are talking about, sometimes the perks just make your avatar cooler with all these collection cards on the bottom of your avatar
I still think putting up a site goal and donation link to paypal would be a good idea
Maybe have donors have an option to change the color of their name. I say option because some people like being anon with that. Maybe even a title along with it. I saw the donation page I'm happy to see it has a link and everything. I just noticed it recently XD. Though if we could have like a news feed or something and have that represented that be cool. Maybe. Well good luck my guys/gals/mods/
