Zero donations in 95 days now.

I’m starting to feel like it’s the beginning of the end. Ad revenue is around 10p per day, but only gets paid out at 60£ threshold.

 :( :'(

Fair enough Mike, be sad to see it go but if it's not getting close to covering costs then you can't be expected to keep subbing it forever! :(

How much do we need to raise?
 

It varies as it’s cloud based so varies with load, or what services I’ve used, etc. I did some server updates this month so used some snapshots for backups and have kept them in case anything was wrong, all those things and varying load levels varies the costs but we normally cost between £20-£30 a month.

Some months earlier in the year we’d hit that with donations but then when there’s a drought of donations it’s just me funding it.

So it’s a tough question, do we need to raise a backlog of funds? Or just find funds for ongoing running? I’ve always kept this place running and I’m not expecting to raise enough to cover past payments, but I can’t keep paying every month to float the forum especially now I’m a sole trader. In the past in my salaried job it was just a small outgoing, now I’ve had to do some real work to earn that money so it’s become more noticeable to me recently.  :heyyy:

C'mon people,let's all dig deep, I was on a certain motorcycle forum recently and that went the same way, everyone was mad when it folded, but they were all waiting for someone else to put their hands in their pockets.
If that doesn't work, maybe calculate a yearly cost and only the ones signing up get to log on.
Any ideas what a yearly cost to members might be?
