Help Support Us!
 
Dear All

It has been over two years since I last had to send a message like this out. It saddens me but in the new year, my fiancée and I will be moving house and base rent will be increasing by over £300 a month. Because of this I can no longer justify funding AnimeOTK.com and the sister sites out of my own pocket. Over the past 12 months donations have been minimal and over 95% of the running expenses have been coming from my own money. Unfortunately, from January 2018 the sites will need to be self-sufficient or face closure.

Technology has progressed and so have platforms to help sites and artists. Because of this, our new primary donation platform will be https://www.patreon.com/animeotk

I have broken down the base costs of the sites and added an initial goal of $125 monthly which will need to be met for the sites to continue. If this goal is not met for two consecutive months we will be closed or the sites sold at auction. If sold, I cannot guarantee what the new owners will do with the content, data, adverts on site or anything else – they may simply close the sites and use the well known and aged domain names for another project. You can however stop this by pledging a monthly donation at Patreon now!

There are another 3 goals added to the Patreon page:
$175 monthly: We will begin to commission resident artists to produce brand new pictures each month available only to VIP donators. The selected image will be based on monthly poll.
$250 monthly: Every network site will have a minimum of 1 new commissioned image every month from resident artists made available only to VIP donators.
$500 monthly: We will begin to transition sites to brand new and updated scripts adding new features and fixing longterm bugs and security vulnerabilities after 2 months of hitting this goal.
$1000 monthly: One site will be upgraded within 3 months of reaching this goal to new scripts adding new features and fixing longterm bugs and security vulnerabilities
$2000 monthly: Two sites will be upgraded within 3 months of reaching this goal to new scripts adding new features and fixing longterm bugs and security vulnerabilities


The Patreon account will be 100% non profit, even though I have paid a considerable amount out of my own pocket over the past 10 years I will not use funds generated for anything other than hosting fees, domain fees and if possible commissions for the VIP only sections of AnimeOTK and sister sites. Patreon has full transparency on received payments and pledges. You can make a pledge now at https://www.patreon.com/animeotk
