Donation Drive - Heavy Site Expenses Imminent

    So as some of you know, we have been working to get a new server setup to move the site to that will greatly reduce our monthly expenses without sacrificing any resources or current quality. Unfortunately we were unable to complete the new setup in time before our current server charges another month of service. This means we now have another whole month to finish working on the new one, but unfortunately means we're going to need to tank the cost of the current server, and all the new server expenses simultaneously. This is going to be a bit rough on Dashmiel and myself.

    I know many of you expressed interest in donating to help with this, and asked that I post an update if we didn't get the new server ready in time. The willingness for the community here to assist with the site expenses is something I forever appreciate.

    The current server gets charged later this week, so anything we can pull in this week to help with that will be of great assistance.

    Dashmiel also asked that I make note of a particularly large yearly expense that is coming up soon. When November rolls around, we need to renew our xenforo license as well as all of the licenses for our various features and addons so that we can continue to maintain active support for the website. Renewing all of that at once can be quite heavy so we have begun saving up now and any donations we can pull in between now and November that exceed the above need will be applied to getting all of our licenses renewed.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this :)
