While I'm at it, I'm going to make one more thread of posts, and that's about how you can support •ART.
As many of you know, to accommodate our recent influx of new users I had to purchase a server upgrade to handle the extra weight.
Our instance is fully hosted and managed by @mastohost, who does such a fantastic job keeping us updated and running smoothly!
But it also costs money every month, and we rely on the support of our users to keep going.
@mastohost We're not a giant corporation making money on your info and serving you ads. This is all just me and our mods, working from our homes, maintaining this community you've all helped us to build.
Up until now, hosting •ART cost us €55/month. The recent server upgrade was an extra €10/m, bringing us up to €65/month. (~$100 CAD in my money.)
This doesn't include the cost of the domain renewals, or all the manpower from your mods and I to manage and support this community.
@sandycyborg Oh my gosh, thank you *so* much! For the donation and for the kind words. It means a lot!
