I hope everyone has made an easy transition over to the new site! We've updated the board overall and now have a SSL secured site (https) along with many exciting features we hope to bring to the board over the next several months . With that said, supporting the site by the staff alone is something that is not sustainable over the longterm. Simply put, we are asking for your help and support to help keep this great community going. Currently, I have included the current breakdown of costs based on our most recent estimates.
- Domain Registration: $20 a year
- Server costs: $50-60 a month (estimated)
- SSL Certificates: $60 a year
That breaks down to about $67 a month to effectively maintain what we currently have, but doesn't include the possibility of server upgrades if the site expands or if we have a very busy weather season. A PayPal account for "Weather Infinity" has been created where anyone that is able to donate can. I know I speak for the community as a whole when I say thank you to anyone who does help support us. This environment helps so many people remain informed and we hope to keep going for a long time.
If you feel like you can donate, I have included a link at the bottom of this thread, but you can also click the donate button in the footer on the bottom of any page. If you do donate, please include your username in the memo option so we can keep up with who is donating.
