2018 fundraising

RajioRajio Centurion

Hey guys. We're approaching the end of 2018 and we haven't hit our fundraising goal. Since I am now hands off with the site, managing it's funds and bills is really the only thing I handle here since I want to avoid conflicts with my day job, and my schedule is pretty crazy anyway. Delayofgame.ca has always run 100% on community support. Without it the site will cease to operate.

A couple of years ago we switched from doing a big annual fundraising drive for the yearly bill payment, to instead just having the donate link in the sidebar all the time to see how it would go that way. It seems this is a less effective approach. The previous method got the year funded fairly quickly and this new method didn't do much at all. maybe next year we'll just go back to the old way ;)

The site's domain and hosting expenses total about $100/year after tax. While 2018 hasn't been funded, we're nearly at the end, and we'll have to start 2019 fundraising in Jan/Feb.

There is a link in the sidebar just to the right here where you can contribute. As contributions are made, I'll make an effort to update this thread so you guys know the rolling tally and when the goal is hit for the year. Depending on how fast it's hit I may consider keeping it up to proactively fundraise for 2019's bills too since we're only a few months away.

Thanks. :)

    Hi people. I would love to help out but disaster strikes. Came home from vacation and waiting for me in the mail is a claim naming me in a lawsuit for a car accident my ex got into in 2016 in a car under my name.

    So i need to hire a lawyer and its a huge expense of top of what was already planned on my arrival home including moving to an apartment as well as getting hitched.

    From what a lawyer said ill most likely be fine and its on the driver, but i still have to pay for a defense.

    For right now since i only get my bonus and so on at the end of the year. I am basically broke.

    Jeez man, that's awful. I remember you telling me years ago you were concerned something like this might occur.

    Any chance you'd be able to counter sue for your fees back? Lawyers are not cheap.

    I dont think it will be too bad. They name me as possibly being responsible for not training her how to drive , not keeping the car in good repair , and letting her drive knowing she wasnt competent..

    WHich is all BS and I had a free consultation with a lawyer who said ill be fine and ill be out of the process soon after it starts , but i do need representation. Im going to be calling a legal aid company today.

    they also name a jane doe showing they dont even really know who was driving or that it was holly at all. Its a BS lawsuit by someone just trying to get money

  • Law212Law212 Centurion

    Oh they want 1 million dollars by the way

  • I want a million dollars to. Ain't happened yet.

    Hopefully it won't be too bad man, and good luck!

    OK so Law had some good news, and doesnt need a lawyer. So Law isnt broke.
    When the ex went to court for this before the judge found there was no evidence it was her that hit the pedestrian. (so many thoughts of carmageddon right now)

    So chances are the judge at this court will do the same. And the insurance company is fighting it so i dont need a lawyer as they have one.

    Law will be fine.

    What is owed for this year's funding? Money is tight for me, but I can see about picking up the rest of 2018 :)

    Hey @Ozzi . It's around $85.00 still, apparently.

  • OzziOzzi Centurion
    Sounds good!

    I'll take care of that over the next few weeks.

    Hey gang just back to let everyone know whats going on with funding. We're still short $85 for 2018 funding and nearing the end of 2018 rapidly.

    The current plan is that if we don't reach funding by the end of Nov, I will be cancelling the renewal of DoG's hosting. If by then we reach the goal, I'll use the funding to continue the hosting plan.

    You can contribute to funding with the link on the sidebar.

    A reminder that DoG is and always has been run purely on community funding to keep it by and for the community so that the site never sells out. Its had a great run so far.

    Jux and Law will are managing things around here. I will update if/when we reach our funding goals!
