G'day SCAdians near and far,
We are in need of monetary donations to keep our site going. Thus far we have put up all the money, time and labor to start this site because we believed it is something our community has needed for sometime now. However, like many of you, we are just regular people with our own financial difficulties and have struggled through a weak economy. We have been able to keep the website ad free so far and would like to keep it that way because we see enough of that elsewhere, and let's be honest - we're all sick of it. We wanted to keep a period feel to the website, just simple, warm and inviting.
Now that we have over 1200 members and many people posting videos and pictures (which is great!) to date, we have consumed 3.25 GB of disk space, and it is really eating up our bandwidth, and the more disk space and bandwidth we use, the more money it costs. We also have been having some technical problems (as many of you have experienced) because our main application and some third party plug-ins need to be upgraded and that is going to cost us as well. This is all in addition to hosting costs and domain name registration. A lot of this probably sounds like a bunch of computer mumbo jumbo but please be assured it is all essential for our website to run properly.
Lord Christoph, has, and will continue to do the labor and keep the website running free of charge. We know many of you out there are strapped for cash, but even a small donation can help keep us running. We urge you to not over extend yourself monetarily but every donation will help keep us going and improve the site. We started this site with a vision of bringing the SCA community together, helping people find everything SCA related in one spot, and on a site that is not going to disappear after a year. Please, help us continue to provide this service. (I hope I don't sound too much like a PBS commercial!) Thank you in advance for your generosity and we look forward to serving you for years to come.
In service to the dream,
Lady Nicolosa del Dolce & Lord Christoph the Great the III
