Comrades, now it’s possible for ProleWiki to receive donations to maintain its hosting costs.
You can donate to us through Patreon or Liberapay. We are open to suggestion in both hosting and payment platforms.
I finally made a patreon account and started pledging to Prolewiki as I said I would contribute ~30€ to the new server costs.
Since it starts billing me in March it should come out to 10 months of support so a total of 40€ in December. Cheers. With the cut Patreon takes I guess you’ll make a bit less than that though.
Edit: I’d like to be reminded how much the hosting costs especially as you said that hostgator would charge more starting next year, and if we finally found a cheaper host. I kinda lost track on that issue lol, but I’m sure potential supporters would also like to. Also we should create a post on Patreon (publicly accessible if possible and not just for backers) with a link to the site and maybe some selected articles, the ones we’re most proud of. To give people an idea what we do.
If you are averse to Patreon taking a cut you can use Liberapay. They take 0% cut and the only cost on top of your donation is the processing fee from Stripe.
According to that last e-mail I received and addressed in the Telegram group, it will now cost us R$1.319,88, provided we still choose to host ProleWiki in HostGator.
I’ll donate some. Good luck, comrade!
