Default Heresy Support Drive 2012 - Bailout Needed

Once again we’re at the time of the year where I like to place up an announcement and draw everyones attention to our subscriber options. I genuinely dislike this necessary process but there comes a time when I have to humbly ask that anyone in a position or inclination to would kindly consider subscribing to the site or donating any amount within their means.

Unlike the previous server drive, things around here have taken a turn for the worse – in a big way. We’re actually in the red on a monthly basis following our recent server upgrade.

To make matters worse one of our longest serving sponsors pulled the plug and we were unceremoniously dumped from our leading ad provider.

In the briefest sense we’re fucked. I’ve been happy to foot the bill since the turn of the year but impending fatherhood has left me doubting my ability to continue.

We also had an amazing offer from a legitimate source which you’ll probably be surprised to hear.

Hi Lee

Thanks for all the info. We would be interested in offering you $40,000 plus 5% of the future revenue of the site for as long as you remain at the helm of the community. Pls let me know if you are interested and I could outline the next steps.

Thanks and Regards,

So this right here is the situation. Heresy as an entity (in my opinion - or at least by my ability) is not self sustaining. I cannot match the running costs with its own revenue streams. There is however an investor out there that believes he can and wishes to take the site off of my hands for the grand sum of $40,000. He wants to flood the site with more adverts than our current total and turn a profit off of our community.

Do I want to sell the site? No. Am I going to sell the site? Not a chance. Would I trade my testicles for the longevity of this community? Yes.

Thankfully selling Heresy isn't going to happen, creating this community, watching it prosper and the friendships within develop is one of (if not) the greatest achievements of my life. It's an extension of myself and I humbly ask now that anyone with a spare dollar consider subscribing or donating to ensure the community lives on.

Please, if you're willing and able - lend your support today!

Whoa, scary times. I don't want to see Heresy go, so I'll contribute as soon as I get some extra cash. Pretty strapped right now, but in a week or two the situation should improve.

I find it ironic that this comes right at the release time of new necron stuff. Almost as if GW is making me choose between the forums I've come to love and new shiny things.

I side with the forums.
