Hey guys, due to recent heartbreaking tragedies in my personal life I have had to sit and make a list of the most important priorities in my life. And although I love this site, I have come to realize that it is not at the top of that list.
Even after making arrangements with my host to shave a little off the cost and even though there is a handful of you loyal fans who have given donations to the site, I have still had to pay a chunk out of my pocket to keep the lights on here, which is something I will no longer do. In all seriousness, I could have paid off my student loans a few years ago had I used the money I pay here towards that bill.
So, this will be the last month that I will pay for the Dedicated server and other services to keep all of the data on this site. It's amazing that there are so many who still continue to grow the stories here. As much as I love the site and all of the wonderful stories here, I just can't afford to spare even a penny on keeping the site online anymore.
For those wondering The cost to pay the remaining months in this year and all of 2018, the cost would be $2800. If any of you want to help to pay the cost in full please check the donation campaign below (and in the left-side panel under the 'Support' section). I have put up a new 'all or nothing' donation campaign which will expire on 09/30/2017. If the funds have been raised the invoice through 2018 will be paid immediately if not all who made a donation will be refunded fully. If everyone who comes here just contributed $1, just $1, we can reach our goal in no time, as we typically have over 100 unique visitors daily!
In the event that we are not able to get the invoice paid in full by the end of 'this month', we will be closing the site by next month. Please save all the stories you think you may want. You can download every story here in epub ebook format.
We have been here for nearly 15 years which is just WOW! I never imagined when I opened the site it would have grown to be a virtual library of Spuffy Fics. I love this place and love you all for supporting it as you have for so long.
I hope you all will understand if we have to close, it has been a wonderful fun ride! Here's to hoping and praying that we can get the donations needed to keep us online through 2018. If so we will not have to worry or do another fundraiser until January of 2019 :)
