Consider Supporting InuYasha-FanfictionOf course, you wonder why such a page exists. This site is funded by Nile (Taiyoukai_Nile) and hosted on a server she leases. InuYasha-Fanfiction has been open since August 2007 and already has around 3100 members and over 1500 stories, and over 750 episode screenshots (as of January 2013.)
However with circumstance beyond control (job issues), InuYasha-Fanfiction.com is in dire need of help funding-wise. InuYasha-Fanfiction currently is VPS account. It costs $500 per year to host. Please note that Nile is already dedicated $175 out of her own pocket... this is outside of the amount needed (so the amount is around $675 per year.) There are plans to develop more of the website and upgrade it, but that costs time and money as well. We already have 5 moderators graciously volunteering a few hours a month to make sure all the stories categorized properly and to provide feedback to Nile in order to solve any problems or cultivate any project suggests. Since then, we have opened the InuYasha Fanfiction Yahoo! Group, iy_fanfiction on LiveJournal, and The InuYasha Fan Club on DeviantART, which are side additions to the site community.
We want to keep this site free from banner ads and text links. Unfortunately, the last company used for text link ads was filled with malware and it had to go. Also, selling the site to someone else who can monetize it with excessive advertising is not feasible. Our long time members have expressed that this site should remain advertisement-free.
One of the solutions is to ask regular members for some support and this seems to be a good request. If you like the site and the site's connected that we run, your donation would help keep this site alive.
As for July 9, 2013, for the 2013 year, we have only raised $310 out of the $500. This may be the last year that this site remains up. Offering to host this site only moves the site on someone else. That is not feasible. If necessary, we may put Google Adsense up, if the money is not raised.
What kind of support is welcomed?
SOLUTION #1 $5, $10, $20 or $50 donations are accepted. We will not accept any more than that for any individual OR even per monthly basis. Despite being a fan, it is important that you do not spend more than necessary. This has been a huge issue in the past and for that reason, we will always lists our contributors and how much was given in the month. We will post them HERE at the IYFF Supporters page. All donators will receive a special banner for their profile and can post it in their stories and LJ accounts if so desired. (Note: If you wish to remain anonymous, please indicate that. If you do not post a name then the donator name will remain blank. The biz name is Host Solutions for the paypal, so please if you see that, you are not in the wrong place.)
If paypal form does not work, you can send to email@example.com via paypal.
Consider webhosting on the same server as InuYasha Fanfiction with Host Solutions. The cheapest packages are $40 and $55 PER YEAR. We only have active 42 domains on the server (as of July 2013.) Again, with only that many, it does not pay for the server.
What will donating do for InuYasha-Fanfiction.com?
Well, if anyone is wondering, donating or doing any of the above will help by keeping the site open and able to expand into new areas.
