We're due to pay the hosting fees for the next quarter. We have to find $600US by the end of the month, which is in just 6 days! As you may know, we no longer make money from fees through the sales system (and we won't, even when it comes back online).
I'm asking for help semi-privately, rather than spamming the whole membership base for now. I think we can easily raise enough to keep IB going just among the close supporters and regular users.
Really $600 is very little to find every 3 months if a few people chip in!
If you can help with the payments for this next quarter please contact me via PM or email firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of the month. We accept a variety of payment methods including direct bank transfers/deposits in the US (so you can now donate to us via your US Bank's Internet banking site!).
If you have friends that you know believe in what we are doing and are site supporters, please make sure they have seen this message too!
Even though we've jumped in site traffic by about 800% in the last 4 months, it looks like our current server and codebase will handle the load for double that amount again. So we will hopefully be able to keep costs low for a long time yet.
Thanks very much
