Hi everyone at diasporing.ch, I wanted first to thank every single one of you because the amount of users has increased and its making me very happy and slightly worried. Very happy because more people means better visibility for the pod and for the decentralized web, so don't hesitate to invite all the people you know because the more the merrier.
Then it's also making me slightly worried, because the server hard drive space is currently at half capacity, and even though it took nearly 2 years to get to that state, it's now accelerating. So the server is going to be out of space next year for sure.
So I will have to either close the new users from being able to register or increase the space, and who says increase space means increase cost. So to be perfectly transparent, I currently receive around 70 cents per week on liberapay, which only covers 4% of the cost of running this server.
So what I would like is to make a donation drive to be able to get 9.- per month from 10 persons per month. You would agree that it's not really asking much...
So tell me dear users what should I do to convince you? Should I dance the makarena or jump to the moon and back?
Don't hesitate to pm me or send me emails I always answer to those.
Enjoy your time on my pod and let's hope to keep it up against all odds!
