The new Supporter system is now running and live and people have already begun to help out! It is greatly appreciated and I respect the kindness and willingness of this community to support me in helping to provide the resources that I do.
For those of you who don't know there are now two types of accounts for members. The first is the normal "free" account that does everything it currently does. Nothing has been changed and you can still download (albeit slowly!) from the servers as per usual. The second is a new "Supporter" membership that provides you with an upgraded account complete with a faster download server, no ads/caching and some other cool features like the file tracker (which, as the name suggests, tracks file updates for you!). This upgrade is provided in return for a small donation to the site so we can afford new hardware and bandwidth to keep the site going to a good standard.
The Supporter system was introduced so that I could say thank you back to those people who are generous enough to help me so please don't shun it thinking it's a step in the wrong direction; because it's a step in the necessary direction if I want to keep running this site, and more, to a stable and top-notch standard.
If you're not interested in being a Supporter (I don't see why you wouldn't be!) but would still like to donate some money to help out there is also a donation form.
