The current situation of v3 site: Updated poll

Hello everyone,

I’m writing this to inform you guys about the current financial situation of the site. I’ve been trying to keep the membership cost of the site $20/month for as long as I could, while offering up to $52-60 worth of request every month for each member.

However as I’m calculating the total cost and return now, it’s just not possible for me to keep doing this the same way as before. I’ll try to break it down with as much details as I can, with the total posts per week of 28 (4 a day)

Total cost of running the site includes:

  • Server + domain: $47/month
  • Purchasing cost: $1,320/month on average
    • Regular requests: Currently around 15/week @$13 = $195/week -> $780/month
    • New releases: Average 5/week @$15= $75/week -> $300/month
    • Other purchases including movies on sales, premium requests etc.: 8/week @$7.5= $60 -> $240/month

For a total cost of $1,367/month on average

Total payments I receive from 55 members @$20/month (this is not accurate as many members using longer membership period at lower fee) = $1,100/month 

As you can see, with the current cost & revenue, it’s not possible for me to keep running the site this way in the long run. I will run out of funds from prepayments very soon unless there are some changes. I really don’t think I should make any decision on my own, so if you guys have any suggestion, please let me know. You can do so in the comment section, chat box or on Discord.

Thank you for your continued support!

Looking for contribution

Hi everyone, there is currently a request for The Simpsons show on iTunes from one of our member. He’s willing to cover a portion of the seasons and looking for more contributors to purchase the whole show with 28 seasons in Full HD. The current price is $15/season on store, and as usual I can cover half the price so it’s only $7.5 for each season.

We’re planning to get 1-2 seasons up a week and we’d love to get some more help to get all the seasons in 4-5 months. So if you’re interested, please send me an email. You can contribute any time you want to, but the sooner you do this the easier for us to plan the purchases.

Thank you for your help!

Important information about Circle

A few days ago, Circle announced to stop the Bitcoin related service, as stated in their blog:

Circle customers who currently hold bitcoin instead of US dollars, pound sterling, or euros may convert instantly to any of those currencies (depending upon availability in the customer’s area). Customers who previously bought and sold bitcoin in the Circle apps may still sell, if they choose, by converting their bitcoin to dollars, euros, or sterling and then withdrawing the balance to their linked card or bank account. Once converted, the account will remain in dollars, euros, or sterling.

Consumers who seek to buy and sell bitcoin in the future may now leverage our new preferred partnership with Coinbase. Customers may still send their bitcoin to any wallet or exchange of their choosing, but Coinbase is our recommended consumer bitcoin exchange.

So from now on, we can’t use Circle for Bitcoin payments anymore. For Circle users, switching to Coinbase is now a recommended option. The site supports Bitcoin purchase through credit & debit card, bank deposit etc… and of course Bitcoin transfer.

If you need support, please contact me directly to my Discord server or through contact form
