As you may have noticed, the webby has recently gained a "Donate" button near the bottom of the page. Instead of just putting it there and hoping for the best we wanted to let you know why it's there.
The cost of maintaining the website on the lowest package for a year is $95.90. As firstly WoW Officers and then Community Officers, we have split the cost amongst us to make sure we can always keep in touch, bring you news, arrange events and also just for general banter. Now with fewer Officers and some being short on funds, it's become harder for those that can contribute to foot the cost.
We have discussed using the Donate option a few times and always decided against it as it can become complicated, but we felt that it was an appropriate option at this time. This is by no means a mandatory thing, and no one should feel like they have to contribute in order to be a part of the Community. It's really only if you can afford it and want to help out.
We would prefer not to have to use the default website as it has a giant advert banner in the middle of the page and also we cannot customise it at all. We are currently working on giving the webby a new look in the months to come.
There will be a cap of £10 per donation as we do not want people to be giving more than is fair or necessary; any amount is helpful. The donations will no longer be accepted once the target is reached. Any remaining cost will be split evenly amongst Community Officers who are able to contribute
