Help Us Run Hollowworld: Community Donations Edition

As you may know, it can be expensive to pay for and host this community we all call home. HollowWorld has been around for many years, and we would like it to be around for many more. Staff is happy to volunteer their time to keep everything within the community moving, however, the server costs money to operate. We recently underwent a migration to new hardware to reduce costs, however, the server will still cost $95 per month, before any incidental costs such as yearly licensing renewals.

In order to keep HollowWorld sustainable and operating, we are reaching out to the community in an open and transparent way. Whenever the server is short funds for a month, the server owner must pay these funds, which becomes expensive over time. We as a community must become more sustainable financially.

We understand some people cannot donate and contribute in other still meaningful ways, and we appreciate that. But if you can afford to help keep HollowWorld running, it would be incredibly helpful to us as a community.

Before Migration up to July 2019: Monthly Server Cost is $140 per month.
Migration after August 2019: Monthly Server Cost is $100 per month (required). ($85 for Hardware. $15 for email host costs)

If we reach $85, we'll have paid for the cost of our server migration that happened this end of July. This migration has helped us run the forums and server at a lower yearly cost. And has helped us prepare for 1.14. August's payment will continue to be accumulated via Buycraft and does not count toward this counter.

If we reach $245, we'll be able to pay for a year's xenforo license which costs an addition $160.

Hey lot- Thank you for supporting us so far with our major donations these past 10 days. We'll be updating our forum license with this boosted help for the year and have paid for the cost of our recent hardware update. We'll still be working towards the Extra Benefits, but if we do miss our mark, we'll be using the rest of what's earned towards August's Monthly total cost of $100.
