Default Support Drive 2009

Those of you who've been around for a while may remember it was about this time last year when we came to you on bended knee, begging for your loose change, trying desperately to get some of you to become supporters and pay for our shiny new server...on account of us being evicted from our old one for sucking up too much bandwidth.

You guys came through then and in a big way. Within weeks we'd raised enough money to pay for our new server and a couple months of fees as well. Without your support then I'm sure we'd never have been able to come to you today...and beg you for more money.

Turns out we got big, and fast!
In the last year site traffic has quadrupled, from 20,000 unique browsers a month to more than 80,000! Our membership has exploded, from a few thousand last year to more than 14,000 now. Literally, we've gained about 10,000 members in a year. Hundreds of registrations each and every week!

We've got some exciting new features coming up too, like Adoptable daemons (incidentally, supporters are beta testing it as we speak!) and a proper wargaming clubs registry, a new awards system, maybe even finally updating the boards software sometime soon, if possible. Unfortunately, new features (especially something as advanced and unique as adoptable daemons) aren't always free.

Between paying off the artists and coders, covering the ever-increasing monthly bandwidth bills, and problems with our advertising system, Jez has been stretched to the max. Not many people know this, but he's been selling off his miniatures lately to cover bills while he makes arrangements for a new job.

So we come to you again to ask for your help to keep Heresy not just running, but keep it booming. In just over two years we've eclipsed all but the very biggest and most-established 40k boards. By this time next year (when we come to beg for support again, I'm sure...it's not groveling if it's tradition ), who knows...it could just be us left on the top of the heap!

Get in on the action now and Become a Supporter! For less than a cup of coffee a month you can do your part to help keep Heresy alive and kicking arse. As before, anyone who beocmes a supporter also gets a huge dose of rep from Galahad as a special thank-you.

If you're already a supporter, but you want to help out even more, we'll gladly accept any donation you're willing to give. Any supporter who makes a generous donation above and beyond their normal dues will recieve a special award: The Tithe of The Faithful


That's right, we're literally handing out medals, guys!
So come on, let's all pitch a day's coffee allowance in the pot and see how much damage Heresy can do in the next year or so

I ain't got no credit card, PayPal account, or money for that matter. Sorry guys. I'd donate if I could though.

For anyone stateside without a creditcard you can send me Money Orders and I will send your donation in by Paypal for the drive. I will ensure, as long as you provide me the proper information, that you get credit for the donation.

Not this week, but the next pay for sure. My classes are starting up soon and tuition is due! Be assured you'll get some extra dough!

I've only been a member for 6 weeks or so, but this is by far the best GW based community site I've found - I've bunged a tenner in.

(and just realised that I used the seperate donate button, rather than subscribe - ach well ;) )

I'll forward this to Jez. He should be able to check the records and give you a subscription
