We are currently working on a plan to make TDH a self-sustaining entity but until that time comes, we still strongly depend on your donations to pay the bills. Last month was a record low for donations and didn't even cover 10% of our monthly costs.
We believe that part of the problem is that the donation bar in the forum header has been there for so long that members tend to simply overlook it.
We are preparing to remove this bar, only leaving the link in the navigation bar for donation and once a month, during the first week of the month, have a mini-donation drive banner (much like the patch banner) at the top of the forum until we reach our monthly goal. We hope this will 1) attract more attention 2) remove the current donation banner thus uncluttering the board and 3) help us meet our monthly donation goals.
Thank you to all those who have donated in the past and all those who will give in the future. As I mentioned, we are working towards making TDH self-sustaining and look forward to the day when we no longer need your financial support.
