Donations Needed
Hello all!

It's that time again, time for another donation drive. As was announced previously, the last drive in November raised enough for about three months of server payments. Since then, bro has again been covering the payments.

The payments for the site are about $100 a month, so any donation that can be provided would be greatly appreciated so that one person doesn't have to carry the cost.

Just so you know why we need the donations: we are a self-sufficient site and rely 100% on donations to keep us going!!

You can donate here:
paypal - [email protected]

ko-fi - ko-fi.com/ygallery

All our crypto addresses are at the bottom of every page on Y!gallery

EDIT: WE'VE REACHED GOAL!! Thank you all so much for your donations! :heart:

Now with a donation thermometer so you can see how we're doing!
[HERE]


Thanks all!

Does purchasing ads help these costs directly? :)

Are you doing an art giveaway thing again? I said I would contribute but I can only offer a single character half-body kind of thing.

So, AO3's donation drive is also this month, which got me thinking that y!Gallery might benefit from a similar strategy -- donation drives with known dates, a few times a year, with a goal amount that the site's trying to reach, and updates on how close we've gotten to the goal.

Like, if a donation drive were to be held every four months, you'd be trying to raise $400 in each one. (Maybe $450, if we're being sensible, because having a little extra in case something goes wrong is a good thing to budget in advance.) The updates to current donations vs goal (perhaps a little block in the sidebar? a daily update on Discord?) would help people see how close you've gotten and encourage them to donate, because they'll know whether you've gotten to the goal yet. I find people are overly optimistic, when they're not looking at the numbers.
