Gang, it's been almost 3 years since we last asked, but we are coming to you again with an appeal for donations to keep the site running. As you all know, Jeff Hinson (aka TulaneJeff) and the admins have donated a ton of time, and money, to provide this wonderful online community and resource that we all use and enjoy. They've worked hard to keep this site as ad-free as possible (at least for members), not to mention keeping membership free as well. They run the site from their own pockets, with limited revenue sources available.

Unfortunately, they are finding it financially difficult to keep the site running. Our fast growth and all the merger-driven traffic is great for all of us, but for the admins, it's become very expensive with hosting fees, site development, etc... They have even added a second server to handle the peak traffic and server too busy messages we have all seen. I guess you could say SBS has gotten bigger than we could have imagined a few months ago. You've also noticed that some of the features (like It's_ON, and chat) are not available to ensure the forums, the core resource of the site, could be maintained.

Since Backstage is completely independent (aka no financial support from Sirius), and since we have limited revenue sources, support can really only come from our valued members. That is why I am asking for YOUR HELP!

SIRIUS Backstage can continue to grow through your donations. You can donate through two online sources: Google and PayPal. TO DONATE, PLEASE CLICK THE LINKS BELOW

- Preferred*



* Google has waived their transaction fee on all payments through the end of January 2008. PayPal takes 3% per transaction.

In recognition of those who have donated, we can place under your name the title of Backstage Supporter if you would like.

Anything you can do to keep this site the great community it is, and to continue to improve SBS, is greatly appreciated. Again, thank you for making SIRIUS Backstage the #1 Fan Site for all things SIRIUS!

My family just started a data center here in Columbus and maybe I can try to get SBS switched over to our servers for very cheap or free! That could save a good amount of money Il see what I can do...

I'm just a poor BK worker, but maybe within the next few paychecks I can toss a few coins in.

I hate to cross-link another thread, but it might be appropriate in this case. I'm putting up a Starmate 4 and universal home kit for sale, and I will donate all actual profits from the sale (selling price - shipping - PayPal charges) to SBS for this money raising effort:

http://www.siriusbackstage.com/forum...d.php?t=101048

So get youself a receiver in excellent condition, and help support this site at the same time
