I'm continually impressed by Xixax's foresight to title the originally TV thread "the small screen" - since most of us watch the series on all kinds of non-TV small screens. this forum is truly ahead of 2003.

Greetings, fellow Xixaxers! The time has come once again to ask for donations. We've put a PayPal button at the bottom of the page.

Renewal time is approaching in March. I'll go through the details.




Here's a rundown of our recent cost history:

$78.75 GoDaddy 3-Year Hosting & Domain (used some major coupons) March 2013
We then received a donation of $40.00 April 2013
Stopped asking for donations
$105.00 Registered for DMCA compliance (so we won't get sued) March 2015
$107.04 GoDaddy 1-Year Hosting & Domain (no discounts for renewal) March 2016

Total goal:
$250.79




More details for transparency:


March 2013



March 2016

If you're taking suggestions, I would like to nominate this gif of Eli Manning watching his brother win the Super Bowl.

Let's get a few more contributions! We'll end the donation begging in less than two weeks. It would be lovely to wrap it up with a bang! (To mix metaphors. Unless you're mishandling fireworks.)

Fine, but only slightly more than I donated to Bernie, because I've known Xixax longer.

Yeah, forget Bernie Sanders! Throw a little cash to the refuge you come to talk about 'Bernie' or 'Burn After Reading,  Bernardo Bertolucci, even Gael Garcia Bernal...
You can go to places in the world with pudding. That. Is. Funny.

Congratulations, Xixax. You raised $184 to keep the site running!

We are genuinely humbled by the turnout. This is a pretty fantastic result, and in less than two months!

So we're good for now! I renewed our web hosting today. If you haven't, please consider donating sometime this year. Even small amounts are meaningful. (Technically a bit short of the goal, and renewal will come around again.) Donation begging stops today, though.

Thanks again, everyone.  :love:

And we definitely used the money to renew the web hosting, not to organize an admin-only poker tournament, that's crazy talk and you should put it out your minds immediately.

Now you're in the *spoiler* place.
