State of the Site
When I started this site, it was never my intention to make money off of it. I wanted very much to keep the site free from ads, and for a few months I was
able to sustain this hope with generous donations from many people. I am incredibly grateful for everyone who took the time to kindly throw a few bucks
my way to keep the site going. It really warmed my heart every time I got a new donation. Your donations helped me be able to register the new domains,
upgrade my flickr account to create the Screenshots Gallery, which hundreds of people have used to find screenshots they needed, and most importantly to
upgrade my package with my provider so that the site hasn't gone down again.
However, as traffic to the site has evened out (and we still have a surprising number of visitors a day), donations have waned. The last few months
I've only gotten a few dollars a month in donations, and looking at what is left, I don't have nearly enough money yet to keep my hosting package
upgraded, plus renew all the domains (I don't include annakie.com in that, that'll come out of my own pocket since it's my personal domain) and keep
an upgraded Flickr account for the screenshots.
After a lot of thought, I had to switch from donations to ad-supported. I've removed the paypal links on the page, so no more donations will
be accepted. This is something I didn't want to do, but it's a financial necessity right now. The money that has been donated has been used in one way
or another to support the site. I need quite a bit more to keep things going as they are, and I'm not going to make that up at the rate donations were going.
If anyone who has donated would like their donation back, I completely understand. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address you donated from and I'll refund your
donation within a week. (If too many people ask, you may need to wait until I get some revenue in.)
In better news, we now have over 230 ME1 saves to choose from and close to 100 ME2 saves! Thanks again to everyone who's submitted! :)
Thanks again everyone for your support with the site. If you have any questions, let me know.
