The Eagle-nation donation station 2013
Hello teamfriends! April's end brings the time round again for Eagle Time's hosting renewal, and Pinary and I would greatly appreciate your help if you've got the five bucks (or more!) to spare.

Pinary's already figured out what we need in terms of funds, so prospective donators will know exactly where their cashbucks are going. The response last year was great; we got most of the necessary funds in within days and Pinary covered the last bit to make sure nobody's money was wasted. We'll likely have a similar arrangement this time round.

Hosting will be $120 (up from $90 last year, so we can keep having fun without waiting five minutes for pages to load); hosting is $15.50 for $135.50 US total.

The ever-nefarious Pinary has also implemented a STRETCH GOAL for if we end up with an overshoot of offerings - eagle-time.com will get a shiny new SSL certificate. The honest truth is that it's just a neat thing to have if the funds happen, but it's far more fun to catastrophise it, so the going story is it's in preparation for when we introduce micro-transactions to Enhance Your Forum Experience™. Gotta stay ahead of the Leading Brand Forums!

If you're willing to donate, thanks! Our Donate button can be found at the bottom of every page, in incongruous theme-wrecking Paypal gold.

Thanks for reading - moreover, thanks to each and every one of you on the forum for being here, doing stuff, and generally being awesome.

Question: You mention hosting twice here. Is that a typo?

Will a high donation amount make my OC canon?

Oop, yep. That's $120 for hosting and $15.50 for the domain name.

If you donate $5000, I'll record a video of me drawing your character on the 100% Official Canon Eagle Time Whiteboard and then erasing it while sobbing about how cruel the world can be.

That may be a bit difficult to do with any regularity, as as of me waking up, we have sufficient funds! Stay tuned for more information.

Just a heads-up to any interested members of the forumnular populus: The cash from last year's donatery was sufficient to pay for not only the last year's costs but this coming year's as well. Thanks again to everyone who pitched in back in 2013!
