$14,309.00


$14,309.00

If everybody gave one dollar a month. I am just saying.

Re: $14,309.00

Not even one comment?

Re: $14,309.00

It’s a nice thought. But to be fair, all those 14,000 are not on PC regularly or even logging in recently. Lots of dead accounts.

Believe me, if we had enough regulars such that a dollar a month would do it, I’d just beg everyone for a dollar a month and flip the bird to ads! :)

But even then some people won’t or can’t pay even that little. And that’s still probably the vast, vast majority.

Re: Re: $14,309.00

I love the site. I donate regularly. Others who love the site should do the same. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

$14,309.00

Do the ads disappear for donators?

Re: $14,309.00

No, ads do not disappear for donors.

Instead of "Donations" we should really call it "Paying My Share To Keep The Party Going."

Re: Re: $14,309.00

I don't understand why I am not listed as a current Donor? I gave $20.00 in February, and still have my sandbox...Thought it was $20.00 for a year

Re: $14,309.00

Sincity, $1 would get you 1 week's worth of donor status, meaning a year would cost $52 (approximately a year, I should say...)

Edit: also a sandbox functions like a regular custom league in that it too has an expiration date, which would be a year from it's creation. And also can be renewed in the same manner as a custom league as well. It also should show the expiration date in the league list entry at the bottom of that list too

Re: Re: $14,309.00

Maybe I am wrong but I thought it was $2.00 a Month or $20.00 for a year? has that changed?

Re: $14,309.00

Sin it's been this way for at least a few years... The 50 league limit for donors wasn't always there either... That was recently implemented as well... It was 40 before that I think (I brought this detail up because there have been changes being made over the years, and I just wanted to point out an example... This particular situation has remained the same as far back as I can remember)

Re: $14,309.00

I see what you mean, the $20 is for the league credit. You can donate as much as you want but the $20 is its own detail... It's a separate entity from the donation process alone. The $20 will get you the custom league credit and 20 weeks of donor status

Edit: I think it's basically just a quick option for would be commissioners, mainly for their convenience

Re: Re: $14,309.00

I am with you sincity, donated in June and says im not an active donor but still have my sandbox active until next June. Never noticed that before

Re: $14,309.00

It's always been that way - a league credit lasts one year. The donor status though is still $1/week. Two different things, although admittedly a little confusing...

Re: $14,309.00

Just a question Guy. How much approximetly it cost you to keep Pennant Chase up for a year? Are we talking of few hundreds...thousands?

What would be your $ goal?

Thanks

Re: Re: $14,309.00

Isn't that like asking a woman her weight?

Re: $14,309.00

Lol @raging. I do want to say, my intent about explaining why I tried new ads was not to inspire more donors, it was to explain why we need some annoying ads. But many people stepped up and donated when the new ads came out. I really appreciate that, but I truly wasn’t intending that.

There really is no set cost because if I make more I can always spend it, either on marketing or more horsepower for the database or servers. Marketing is one aspect that really gets overlooked. You can burn through money pretty fast trying to run ads.

Thus far this site has always been able to pay for itself. I promised myself I would never run the site at a loss, and so far so good (of course not including my free labor... this site runs at a massive loss if you factored that in)... but in reality things can always be better and that simply costs money. And in some cases I just don’t have time so I have outsourced work such as the mobile app.

At the end of day, I would not want anyone paying PC if they can’t afford it. That goes against the spirit of the site. If you’re inspired to donate, that’s great.

Re: $14,309.00

Ok thanks! I was thinking PC was in big trouble. This is why I've asked...

So yes, with this perspective, it's like asking a woman her weight lol

Maybe adding a "Donation meter" in website with a yearly goal could be an interesting idea?

Continue your great work Guy, PC is amazing!

Re: $14,309.00

Wait, which is worse, asking a women her weight, or asking her AGE? Lol

(I'd say neither. They're both extremely hazardous to your health!! 😂😂😂😂)

Re: $14,309.00

How much can we generate by clicking on an add? I try to click on add every time I play
