    I'm not sure how viable a donation drive is considering last time that was attempted we got slammed with thousands of stolen credit cards and chances are that would happen again.

    YT partnership might generate a little coin but I'm not sure how that works since we're re-upping other people's videos. ED doesn't exactly produce a lot of OC videos.

    We got the Moneypak thing going again with the Vanilla Reloads but that's limited to the US which only covers maybe 30-40% of our userbase.

    Self-Serve ads could bring a little money, but technically we've been doing that all along anyway.

    Anyway I've always thought merchandise would be a hitter but the only way to make money with that is with a DIY approach otherwise most of your profits are going to a middle man. Not only would that be a part-time job for someone to iron t-shirts, but you'd have to expose a physical address which opens up a whole other can of worms.

    Point blank people just need to be more generous. A site like this isn't commercially viable because of the type of content we host so we have to rely on the userbase to keep things going. Just throw a bone every once in awhile, and if you don't have a bone to throw, click the ads.

    So we're tossing ideas out, eh? Alright. Here's my niggerdly input:

    1) Employed users tithe
    2) Unemployed users make XSS profitable
    3) Be just a bit less openly hostile to noobs and instruct them to show their loyalty with their wallets
    4) Find a way to implement an optional monthly subscription that makes some extra feature or privilege available, but doesn't massively disrupt the forum ecosystem
    5) Overhaul the concept of the forum bling page, or at least fix it

    We will never have a legit credit card processor due to fraud. Our last donation drive (2 years ago) we got 14k in fraudulent donations, which racked us up about 5k in chargebacks.

    The best ways to donate are listed on https://encyclopediadramatica.se/Donate

    If you are serious about donating, PM me.
    If you aren't, don't waste my time by PMing me and telling me you will be donating "soon" when you fully know it will never happen.
