The cost of the web hosting is significant. The first year has been funded by the founder of Bluraydefectueux.com. We try to avoid as long as possible advertising, considered unanimously as annoying, invasive, and very disturbing to read and use, especially on a forum.
You are considering Bluraydefectueux.com useful ? It could help you? That's why we are counting on your generosity. We thank you in advance for your interest.
What's the cost of your web hosting?
The web hosting in its present form costs €160 (incl tax) /($179 USD) a year (in a single payment)
It will always be €160 (incl tax), really?
Bluraydefectueux.com just started, but if its level of attendance could increase (from the technical view: a significant use of the data base, requests, server load) we would have to opt for a better web hosting solution that allows to you a comfortable and fluid use without annoying messages like "too many users!" etc. That's why your donations are very important!
I want to donate, can I give you the amount I want?
Of course, you can make a donation of €1 or €10, knowing that the median donation is 5€. There's no limits!
If your 'harvest' is much bigger than intended, what will you do with the extra money?
With the extra money, we could improve the web hosting or we could buy blu-rays or gift cards, vouchers (to spend in a cultural store) to win in a special contest reserved to our generous donors.
You have to know that if the requested amount is exceeded very fastly, we will stop the donation campaign. Usually the donation campaign will start 6 months before the hosting renewal.
If your 'harvest' has not reached the amount intended, is Bluraydefectueux.com going to cease?
Of course not! But, to keep Bluraydefectueux.com alive we will have to pay the difference or the entire cost if there is no donation.
How to be sure the figures are correct and honest?
We will simply publish figures on demand. By the way, we invite our generous donors to make themselves known on the dedicated thread (see bellow), and write in a post their nickname+the amount of the donation and the maths will be easily done!
