The future of beastlords.org
« on: December 14, 2014, 08:18:01 PM »
Hi everyone, it's me the usually awol admin :p

This post is basically to see what interest still revolves around this site. As it seems to be a tradition, around the end of a year, my own life becomes a bit of a mess. As a result of that and the activity level here, I'm wondering if it's worthwhile to renew the domain name for the site.

So if anyone really wants to keep the site going and wants to help with the renewal and hosting of the site, you can do so by donating via my Streamtip page (my name for many years that I use online has been Daevien as a note on the difference there).

Even if I don't get donations, I may still renew but it depends on my finances which aren't that good and the domain comes up for renewal at the beginning of January so not a lot of time.

So, reply with any thoughts you might have about the situation and/or the future of the site.

Well, I would certainly like to see the site continue.  I come hear nearly every day to check on new posts, even though right now I am focusing my leveling and equipping my Bard first.   

I know, "put your money where your mouth is".  Unfortunately, this time of year is not the best for extra funds.

Is it possible to throw up some ads on the site to fund it?  I have gotten good with ignoring them :)

No problem at all, I definitely understand. If I can get the money, I will renew and keep the site going. If not, I do have a bit of a grace period before I lose the domain name completely, but it won't be usable until it's paid.

There already is one ad at the bottom of the page but it doesn't get a lot of attention really. Which is fine because it's more about the site content, even though I really haven't done much with it for years now.

It's about $12 US per year for the domain itself, not a huge sum but I just don't have the extra to throw at it currently

Awesome!  Thanks, Jaeren.  I'll post that on the Sony forums.

If somebody is interested in either taking over hosting, or in copying the content for archive purposes, would you be amenable to this?

At this point, the hosting is taken care of for another 8 months or so, domain for a year. I really hope i'm not in the situation right now when anything else needs to be done :p

Visited this site for years but never registered.
Now i did - hoping some more will do to keep it somewhat busy.
