Nice one guys

Welcome :)

No donations thingy yet as far as I know

And I think Slyvampy is paying the hosting out of his own pocket.

i think that a donate button like paypal would be a good idea somewhere on the first page of the site.

It's a good idea and i'm sure even if people could only donate a $5 or so, possibly have an option to remove the adverts for say 6 months or so. Other sites do this and i think its a good way to keep them self supporting or even just have a page of links to online retailers so if you buy something you know the site gets a cut of it to fund the hosting /domain.

Thanks guys, your support means alot.

At the moment, yes i am indeed paying for the bandwith/hosting; however it is noted and appricated that people are prepared to help out with the fees etc.

Once we have launched the site properly, (target date is still June 1st). I will incorporate some sort of paypal donations for the site, just to help cover some costs of operation. However I wont be doing this until then at least - as we arent really even in a beta stage yet, still lots of hardwork to be done :)

Once again, thanks for your contiuned support.

I hope I'm not being to personal, what does it cost to run a site like this on a monthly basis?

Think the most expensive part would be hiring PHP developers :P

But as far as I know (Without knowing what it really costs), it all depends on how popular the site is. The more popular it is, the more bandwidth we use, and the more we probably have to pay the hosting provider. I think we do have a certain amount of free bandwidth though before paying extra

Greetings all.

I have taken on the task of updating all the flora and creature resources on swgcraft.com for Bria. I just recently found out about this site last night and I must say it is looking pretty good. I haven't gotten a chance to check all the different areas out but I'll start taking a gander this weekend at the features. If I can be of any help, I'd be glad to assist.
