Since you brought it up, here's the HSers financial overview. The budget is pretty tight. Hosting is our biggest cost and will cost $770.00 for the upcoming year. There are sometimes other miscellaneous expenses, but hosting is by far the largest.

In the past 12 months, we received very close to $800 after PayPal took it's cut. The year prior was about $980 (IIRC) after fees, so the trend is downward as expected.

So while we're not in jeopardy of closing down, there will probably be a shortfall this year. If anyone is thinking about becoming a site supporter, go right ahead!

Re: The HSers Budget

I'm definitely going to try to scrape together some extra money this year to become a site supporter.

I know some sites have an issue with getting advertising money because so many people use adblockers. Would getting everybody to disable theirs while on the site help out here? I know that even if it would, it wouldn't be a huge margin, but I can deal with getting a few Plaidhat Games ads if it means Heroscapers is just a tiny bit better off because of it.

Not really. The Plaid Hat Games ads aren't a direct revenue source. PHG is owned by Truth (Colby) who founded HSers. HSers and PHG, while independent, help each other out in several ways, and HSers providing that ad space is one element of the relationship. It doesn't hurt that they make great games!

If we sell ads on the left blog sidebar area (like the recently expired Minion Master ad), that would be a revenue source, but we haven't really gone out and tried selling that ad space.

Re: The HSers Budget

I agree with Ace Histoli. For those of us who are already lifetime supporters, are there ways to continue to contribute financially?

Sure. The system will let you donate again even though you are lifetime. It won't expire your lifetime status. But you can only do exactly $15 or $45 that way, not more or less.

If there's demand for it, I can set up a "you set the amount" Paypal donation button that's unrelated to being a site supporter or not.

Unfortunately, I have spent all my Paypal money (darn attractive steam sales). Otherwise, I would chip in some more. Once I get a job and finish saving for a car, I will definitely chip in more though.

So you plan on... trying to become a site supporter? You don't plan on actually doing it?

And in the putting your money where your mouth is department, I just re-upped, despite the lifetime membership.

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

Re: The HSers Budget

Lots of financial support yesterday.

Thank you Ace Histoli, akden, Jim, and Sir Dendrick!

I had someone ask me yesterday if it was possible to gift Site Supporter status to someone else. Yes, it is. Just donate as usual and then PM me, telling me who it should be applied to (and if you want the gift to remain anonymous).

The person who asked about the possibility promptly gifted flameslayer93 1-year site supporter status (anonymously)!
