    This may look familiar. We are a community that runs off of donations, and have always been funded by donations. Strictly by the community, for the community. This will be the last month in our community that we will have a three-digit donation amount. For the longest time we required $150, and we brought that down to $100, and now we're bringing it down to around $50.

    In the future, we are going to be optimizing our server size to make donations cost the absolute least they can. We also are considering moving to an entire, cheaper new server with a potential location change to lower costs. We've always and always will be anti Pay2Win, but as time has gone on we have explored and given donors small incentives and recognition and will continue to do so in the future to ensure that our selfless donors get something else in return, other than helping us continue providing our services.

    We're asking you all, the community, to pitch forward this last 80 USD so that we can afford the last month of these servers and can then make a smooth transition to a new host. This will also allow us admins to put our available funds not towards the servers, but towards forum features and advertisement that will enhance your experience. In the future, hopefully a lower cost will open up room to fund more of these features and more advertisements which will allow our community to grow.

    Don't donate if you can't, but if you have some spare change laying around and would like to support us, every penny helps. Thank you so much!

    Well I noticed, that donation meter was moving lazily in like several months now.
    Good that we are lowering target, we don't want to end up like Caznowl, right? ;^)

    No problem friend!

    You know, it was Coney Island, they called Coney Island the playground of the world. There was no place like it, in the whole world, like Coney Island when I was a youngster. No place in the world like it, and it was so fabulous. Now it's shrunk down to almost nothing...you see. And, uh, I still remember in my mind how things used to be, and...uh, you know, I feel very bad. But people from all over the world came here...from all over the world...it was the playground they called it the playground of the world...over here. Anyways, you see, I...uh...you know...I even got, when I was very small, I even got lost at Coney Island, but they found me...on the...on the beach. And we used to sleep on the beach here, sleep overnight..they don't do that anymore. Things changed...you see. They don't sleep anymore on the beach
