    A Polite Reminder From The Admins

    Hello all,

    It’s your friendly neighbourhood Admin Team here with a message that is sure to raise your hearts and spirits. Nah, not really.

    Due to the volatility of both GBP and USD at the moment, it seems as if the monthly costs of running the site have increased significantly in 2019. Now I don’t want to say it’s all Dakstang’s fault, but we’ve seen our costs increase by 20% since we first took over the site 4 years ago. Some of that is FX rates, some of that is increased server costs (remember the great server blackout of 2016?!), and some of that is Fuji’s expenses from his trips to Cancun.

    This combined with a significant downturn in donations to the site has led to Ed and I sacrificing certain aspects of our luxurious Admin lifestyles. I mean, ordinary vintage Bordeaux’s over Chateau Neuf de Pape? Tsar Nicolai Gold Reserve Caviar over the superior Strottarga Bianco? Will the pain never end?

    On a serious note, here’s some numbers:

    2016 had 14 donors for a total of £236

    2017 had 12 donors for a total of £245

    2018 then saw 3 donors for a total of £90

    2019 has just 2 donors for a total of £120

    … and he probably wouldn’t like me to mention it, but Smooth Jazz Wolf is responsible for the VAST majority of that money this year. Special thanks to you my friend, I am forever grateful for not only the hard work you do every do on the site but also the financial support you have provided despite never taking credit or ever being asked to help out. Cheers to you!

    VIP incomes have held steady over the years, so we would prefer not to change any of that. We think the current system and price scheme work well, but if you would like to make some comments about this please feel free to post in the thread.

    Now, this is not a plea for money or an ultimatum by any means. Ed and I are as happy as ever running the sites and the costs (while definitely considerable) are not to the point where they are unmanageable. We have never made a profit out of the site, nor do we have any aspirations at making the place a money spinner. We don’t want some lame homepage with clickbait titles and ads cluttering every page, we want to keep WC a website paid for by the community and designed for the community. However, it shouldn’t be taken for granted that these things cost money, and as 2 twentysomethings, Ed and I sometimes need a bit of help.

    What we are asking is that you don’t forget that juicy Orange button up there on the links bar. It’s there for a reason and is a real subsidy towards our monthly costs. Make a bet with someone on the site? Why not make the prize be a donation! Hell, for every donation over 20 quid I’ll probably fire you a or two.

    As you were friends,

    The Admin Team.

    Just to clarify, it was two trips to Cancun and two to Cuba.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Nash and Ed for subsidizing my vacation and, by doing so, enhancing my sex life.

    I feel like a re-naming of The Nash Box should be considered...
