tww hasn't had a reliable source of revenue for the last year, since the advertising platform we were using disabled our account, and the few alternatives I've looked at haven't panned out. I've been able to pay tww server costs from some reserves from years past, but i've basically been paying out of pocket the last year. recently the autopay for the server stopped working, and the hosting company I guess turned off service. I was able to reboot the server (lol), but I don't know how long it'll last.

so, since we've now had a taste of tww's end, we can either decide to embrace it, or I can take another shot at finding a way to keep paying for this stuff.

How much would you save if it stripped out all the image hosting?

Also, what's the approximate cost to keep tww up?

current hosting is $250/mo

$10/mo with 25 benefactors would cover it.
or a more sustainable model would be to cover a year at a time. $100 with 30 benefactors.

You'd get a better return on your investment by lighting your money on fire.


Do the right thing, don't let TWW turn into the website equivalent of Terry Schiavo.

TWW is where I get most of my news (political, sports, tech, whatever) and at least semi informed opinions

I don't really know where I'd go if it were gone.

ITT: People pay the equivalent of a Netflix subscription to keep the nostalgia going.

But damn. It's hard to let go. If we're really scraping together a monthly funding scheme, I'll chip in as well.

i'd be totally fine with that. but

if it's 250/month that works out to 600 users paying $5 premium/year. uh...are there 600 users?

Regardless of how many it would cut a chunk out of the need for "sustaining" money.

I'll chip in. Set up a tww-specific patreon or? Maybe there's a better way of regular payments I dunno.
