Domain name and donations
 
Domain name and donations [ Community -> Update ]

In a few months it will be a year since the new staff at DaC started running the site. That also means the registration for the domain www.duckandcover.cx will be expiring soon, unless we renew it. It costs $50 to renew for a year, $123 to renew for three years. So basically, I'm asking for donations to help pay for the domain name for as long as possible. A year at the least, but if we get enough, for three years.

Looking at the number of people who vote on the front page polls, we have at least 70 registered, regular users on the site. If everyone sent in $2, we'd have enough for the domain for three years. If everyone sent in $2.50, we'd have enough for three years with duckandcover.cx and be able to put in a claim for duckandcover.net when it expires in a few months' time, having it redirect to duckandcover.cx.

You can donate using the PayPal button on the forums, or by clicking here. If you want to donate but can't use PayPal, PM me and I'll try and sort something out, though PayPal is much more convenient. The money goes into a PayPal account I set up for donations, and emails announcing new donations are forwarded by PayPal to myself, King of Creation and Insane-Lark, to reassure people that one of us isn't going to run off with the money. All funds in this account will go back into DaC.

It comes down to whether you like DaC. We need money to keep the site around - without the domain name, the site will die. We can't continue our crusade of being nearly the best site ever without it. If you can afford to send a few dollars, please do so. To the people who have already donated (you know who you are) - thanks.
