Fund Raising Time again

Postby Brian CC » Tue May 09, 2017 3:38 pm

Hey folks,

As you know last year we were forced to upgrade to a virtual private server for the site by Bluehost. Well, it's billing time and the damage is $575.00 for the year. I've paid for another year but as you can imagine it's a big hit to the credit card.

If you can spare a few bucks to help ease the pain, I would much appreciate the support. If not that's okay too.

If you would like to help you can send an e-transfer to brian@canuckscorner.com
or via PayPal to brian@canuckscorner.com

Thanks again, and go Canucks go!

Brian

Thanks Rats.

Yes I don't mind footing the majority of the bill. But it would be nice to recoup a little. I used to pay like 80.00 a year for the site, 600.00 a year is a little steep. After this year I am going to reassess things, either look for a new host, or shut the site down. Most of you know I rarely interact on here, I've kept it going for all you long timers, so if it's all coming out of my pocket, I need to reassess.

I still think I got screwed over by Bluehost, basically holding the site hostage unless I upgraded the package. Moving the site is a lot of work that I'm not sure I have the will to do. So we'll see what happens after this year.

If all of the regulars could donate a penny per post, we'll keep the site going.

Do the math, make a donation.

Just in full disclosure, here is what I was billed for the site. I want to be transparent here.

Done. This site is better than an old-school subscription to The Hockey News and you don't (usually) have to wade through stuff about the 29 teams you don't care about.

Thanks Brian!
