Running Costs

It is that time of the year again, where we ask for you help in covering the ongoing costs of keeping this site running and ad-free. The last time we ran a donation drive was in 2014 and raised enough to get us through until now. The more we can buy up front, the more we insulate ourselves from price hikes.

Hosting costs have increased significantly over the last 2 years and it costs $167.88 per year for hosting now, or $287.64 for 3 years if we can raise the extra $120 to cover a much cheaper 3 year period. The other costs include $19.99 per year for the domain and $29.30 per year for the chat box.

Total required for a year: $217.17
Total required for 3 years: $435.51 (which equates essentially to 1 year for free)

There is a donate link on the home page underneath the stats, to donate via paypal. Or you can use this link:

Donate

Any support you can offer is greatly appreciated and even the smallest amounts accumulate and help enormously. The Chamber makes no profit from these donation drives and every cent raised is spent on running costs. Everything else on the site is a labor of love.

Without asking for donations, the only other options are to sell advertising space or let it go under. So we humbly ask for your...

Missing Reviews

Have had a lot of emails recently about missing reviews. If you get a notification that a new review has come in and then it isn't there when you check, don't panic. It was a spam review and has been deleted.

In an effort to keep spam off the site, I try to delete the spam registrations and reviews as they come in. It is an ongoing battle and there is no real practical way to stop it except to disallow reviews completely.

You can set your stories to members only, but that will only slow it down, not actually stop it.

Every day i delete anywhere between 50 to 5000 or more reviews that are just rubbish trying to sell things.
