    The database handling fee seems like a rip-off.
    Have you considered moving to another platform ?
    no DB hosting is pretty pricey especially when u need to scale to handle millions of requests

    Simple Email Service is the cost of emails sent --> 133,484 email so far
    you should save on this one in my opinion. The emails are useless as all notifications can appear as soon as you visit the forum.
    my humble opinion

    Hello Guys,

    This year will mark the Orange Room's 15 years anniversary.

    For most of those years, this forum has been self-funded with the help of its moderators, ORS & donors. My goal this year is to try and reach around USD 1,000 - This will help to pay part of the:
    • Server cost
    • Licenses cost
    • Plugins cost
    By donation to the Orange Room, your account will also be upgraded to ORS. You can use the link below:


    I appreciate all of your support! This forum wouldn't be online without you.

    With love/Sincerely,
    Jo

    Done. Although unclear what is the different between option 1 and option 2 except option 1 costs 2x more ;-)

    Edit: Is one pre- and the other post- the Randa 51% ?

    Most of you reading this spend more time on this forum than watching a movie or drinking a beer with your friends....
    Paying 10 or 15$ to watch a movie for 2 hours is worth the money
    Paying 30$ to have a beer with friends for 3 hours is worth the money

    Hundreds of hours spent here is not worth 10, 20 or 50$?

    (i understand some people cannot.... not looking at you)
    Fair point... But at the same time, you chose the movie you watch... Do you really, really, really chose to read @Resign posts?

    Shared web hosting is cheap - Cloud and Dedicated servers are actually expensive.

    For example, this was my Server's October invoice.

    And this is November's so far.

    Excluding Cloudflare, plugins & software license.
    Hello Jo I dunno if the problem is from my end but I cant see the attachments can u repost them?

    Oh and the revolutionary forces have doubt that these funds will reach khaznit el Oroom so I need to be a part of the Khanzit el Oroom commitee
