IMPORTANT: Please donate & help keep Music Playground alive.

Postby Aquila » Mon Aug 20, 2012 12:06 pm

Hi folks,

As you may or may not be aware, for the past 5 or so years I've been happily hosting the Music Playground site and domain at my own cost and have loved the emotional rewards of doing so. I have seen this place go from just a humble forum to the splendid site that Lothario has lovingly crafted over time.

Sadly, due to my recent job loss I am at risk of being unable to pay for the next 12 months of hosting out of my own pocket and so it's very humbling (and somewhat embarrassing) for me to ask the Music Playground community for financial help. In order to keep this site up and running each year, approximately AU$100-150 (or roughly US$110-160) is needed to cover hosting costs and domain registrations. To some this may seem a lot and to others this may (hopefully) be just pocket money.

So I'm asking YOU to donate anything you can. My hosting renewal is up on the 27th of September so we have a month to achieve our goal.

I've set up a Paypal donation station where you can donate whatever amount you feel you can spare. Click the 'Donate' icon below if you want to participate.

Donation goal: $150 out of $150 collected!

GOOOOAAAAAL!!!

There's no reason to feel embarrassed, the fact that you've injected so much money into the site over the years is amazing, and I really respect you for that. I wish you the best in finding a job you're happy with!

Payday, this friday.

I think we should donate every year, if we have the coins to do so.
