  5. It's time for another voting drive! As with previous voting drives we will be sending out voting reminders once a day for the first week of a new voting cycle. This helps to get a good position in the top rankings early on. For people wanting to help out around the site but who can't necessarily contribute in other ways, this is a great way to help out. I can't understate how important voting is. Almost all of our traffic comes from TopRPSites, and when we aren't in the top rankings, we don't draw in new users. So get on in there and vote for Storyteller's Circle!

  6. So as some of you may already know, we're looking to get the website's platform updated to the newest version of Xenforo. The newer platform (Xenforo 2) comes with a lot of solid features and bug fixes from the original Xenforo. To reach this end we have setup a donation campaign for people interested in helping out.

    I have always intended - and continue to intend - to keep Storyteller's Circle ad free. The donations we receive from the general users, and Dash and I's willingness to pick up the difference is generally more than sufficient. We just have a lot of extra expenses rolling in that go beyond the normal monthly expenses, so we are making a more active effort to draw in more donations for a short while.

    I understand you want to keep this site independent, but I'm not talking about annoying ads like pop-ups. Just talking about casual ads that pay a little for every visitor seeing the ad.

    In the Hive Workshop, they have a corner for non-intrusive ads but the site still functions normally. Also ads may help when you meet situations like this, and also it might allow STC to have more addons and server space?

    As said, I have always been and remain adamant about keeping the site ad free. Donations help a lot - and are ALWAYS appreciated - but Dashmiel and myself have always been up front that any expenses not covered by donations, we cover personally.

    Revan, Nilum and The Essence like this.

    It's okay. I was just suggesting ideas anyways.

    Yeah, I don't mind suggestions :) It's just something Dash and I agreed upon from day one, that we would maintain the place ad free. I didn't want a 'if you don't donate, we're putting up ads' mentality. We encourage donations (especially during high expense periods like now), but in no way require people to provide them.
