In about 3 months it's time to celebrate the Realm667's 12th birthday. Except Doomworld itself, this makes us the Doom page that is running for the longest time - a page dedicated to the best game of all time, without any single doubt. Six years ago when the site finally merged into a general resource site for ZDoom/GZDoom related stuff, the costs already increased drastically as the whole traffic and space that was necessary for the stuff online had to be paid. Since then the monthly fee is about 28,00 Euro / 37 US-Dollars (which is actually a total of 1567,00 Euro /2667 US-Dollars only in the past 6 years btw) and I can't reduce the costs considering the amount of data and traffic involved. Two years ago, I added the option to transfer a donation as a support for the Realm667 but unfortunately the Realm667 didn't get a single cent as support.
The Realm667 was never meant to earn the big money, and was always a place free of andy GoogleAds or similar stuff that was just annoying and I actually plan to keep it exactly the way it is. Though, paying the whole thing from my private pocket just doesn't seem right considering the service here that is actually given for free to all of you - both as a host for your work and a host for resources for your projects. To keep the site just the way it is now and support myself with the monthly costs, just donate something via Paypal. It's easy, it's fast, it's safe and it goes directly into the financing of this page, nowhere else! It doesn't really matter if you are going to donate 1 Dollar, 10 Dollars or just a few cents, any kind of donation helps to keep the Realm667 alive and just the way it is now.
Thanks for reading this,
and thanks for your contribution,
best regards - the Realm667 team
