Firstly, I'd like to make it clear that this site does not run at a profit. Quite the opposite in fact! Just don't want H&R getting the wrong idea!
Due to its size, this site costs a fair bit to host. If you use this site regularly, please consider donating just a couple of dollars (or whatever you feel comfortable with) to help keep it alive.
The Artwork Archive is constantly increasing in size, which although in relative terms, doesn't sound like much of a problem, in hosting terms it's nightmare. The main problem that I am now encountering is the amount of bandwidth that is used in downloading the artwork.
Over the past 12 months or so, the site has started to see dramatically increased traffic, which grows daily. So using any hosting option that doesn't give me a lot of bandwidth is a non-starter.
I certainly have no plans to move to a site with adverts (they annoy the hell out of me aswell!), but keeping the site ad-free does cost and consequently all contributions are more than welcome!
Each donation helps keep this site alive
A special thanks to all who have donated so far, and especially to Mike at Meek's Genesis Trade List for helping out with webspace when it was most needed.
Many thanks to those who have contributed so far including (but not only!) (if you'd like me to remove your initials or if I've missed you out, please email me).
