Donations are optional, and members who donated before I changed models (subscriptions are now required for new members) are welcome to keep their accounts as is. You'll note these members have the words Lifetime Elite by their names, including you. That being said, I wouldn't turn down donations, that's for sure. The annual hosting for a year is about $800, but that's because I want the site to be fast for people. I also look at the site nearly every day. Donation link immediately below.
