A reminder for everyone, In order to keep the community sustainable and to afford the payments for the ts3 and server hosting our site, as well as new things to come such as:

1) New forum themes, as Xenforo keeps updating itself, so must we.

2) Tourney games -- More into it from @Hawk.

3) add-ons, such as ratings, Steam integration and more on this to come.

4) I leave this option for suggestions, if people would like to suggest, feel free.

Recently, we've had a problem regarding payments and we found out that we're not getting enough funds to even sustain ourselves, from Patreon we're getting 12$ month, as example, The community needed a sum of 26$ to sustain it self on a monthly basis, now that's an issue.

After some checks and adaptations we did some changes that lowered the amount needed to pay monthly, however, we still are in dire need of Patrons.

I don't want to ask people to do it, but I think we can easily achieve 1$ patrons from many people, we have more than enough people to afford such a thing, that aside, my reasoning for this thread was simply to put awareness in the community's situation as well as alerting some problems we face.

Rest assured, the community aside is doing terrific, With @Hawk on the Tournaments planning and forum games back again, and with the arrival of WoW Classic, WC:Reforged, We'll have many games to invest in for all of us, I hope to see you all there :)

The current bills are about half of what we used to pay, just as a heads up. But that doesn't mean that overflow will be wasted, as draggie said tourneys and other upgrades also cost money.

I really do urge everyone to drop a penny or two, as I always feel like a dick when I ask the staff members with actual jobs chip in to pay the bills. As draggie said that 2 bucks a month really don't seem a lot, but they ARE.

Anyway if you got any questions about how your money would be spent or anything else ask away :)

Because 20+ people use it every day over Disocrd. And teamspeak is actually free we're just paying for the forums.

Apparently we are at 14$ now. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to increase my monthly donation anymore until October. So I'll revisit it then. However, I recommend Draggy or Hawk get in touch with everyone who donates to make sure Patreon is tallying up the donations properly. Because I have a feeling it's not.

Patreon does take a cut of the donation. So that might be the case.
