So, a lot of you guys asked, some suggested, and so I'm putting this up. 

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS BEFORE DOING ANYTHING. 

We can move to a VPS server. That would be a server for ourselves, which should handle the usual spikes in traffic we get here every once in a while, and with more than enough bandwidth for the site to run without much trouble. 

We use HostGator as our host. So I'm going based on their plans and pricing. They are as follows: 

1 year plan: $599.70
2 year plan: $1,103.46
3 year plan: $1,511.28

If you want to check the pricing out directly: https://checkout.hostgator.com/signup/v ... PYV/cPanel

I'm including all the pricing because I'm not going to set a limit on the GoFundMe. I'm aiming for the 1 year hosting plan, but either way, I'm just leaving all the options there. All this is money accounted for and you will receive any and all receipts I get my way. I'm not Briterz. If we close enough to any of the above plans, but not quite, I'll pay the difference. Again, I'm aiming for the 1 year plan, so we can work towards that one instead of the others. We'll worry about it again next year, but I hope to have ad solutions implemented by then. 

If you guys decide to participate in this, please be aware of the following: 

Your donation does not mean you are exempt from the rules, and it does not mean that you are exempt from being banned. You are doing this of your own free will, with no 'reward' or quid-pro-quo based on your donation. You do it solely to have the site moved to a different server that can handle the traffic spikes we've been having. All the available features currently at my disposal are fully deployed on the site, including the larger avatars, increased PM storage, and all the other little features that have been added since the site went live. I'm always open to suggestions and anything else you guys might want to ask for, and so long as it is within my possibilities (or the capabilities of phpBB) we can work on it. Once more, if you donate, do so because you want to, and not because you're going to come back at me and say "how the fuck did you ban me when I gave you money".

With all this in mind, if you're interested in contributing towards getting us to a better and improved server, then by all means, click the link below and do so.

As a way to provide recognition to those who contribute, I will be placing all those who donate under a new rank of Contributor and will also change the color of your username, so it's not the same as everyone else. If you are contributing and don't want this done to your profile, let me know.

Thanks again :)

Not really. It said it was pretty much open until I closed it. 
I'll keep it open and see what happens. By Tuesday of next week is when they're getting back to me about the upgrade.

It doesn't accept PayPal, sis. They were the cheapest (deductions wise) and quickest for me to get the money. I'm sorry :(

You create an account, give them your CC or bank info, and donate however much you wish to donate :)

If anything, you can pm me your data so I can send some money over to you per PayPal.
