Hello! It seems you have made it to our donation post.
We created Reddthat for the purposes of creating a community, that can be run by the community. We did not want it to be something that is moderated, administered and funded by 1 or 2 people.
Current Recurring Donators:
Current Total Amazing People:
In one of very first posts titled “Welcome one and all” we talked about what our short term and long term goals are.
In 7 days since starting, we have already federated with over 700 difference instances, have 24 different communities and over 250 users that have contributed over 550 comments. So I think we’ve definitely achieved our short term goals, and I thought this was going to take closer to 3 months to get these types of numbers!
We would like to first off thank everyone for being here, subscribing to our communities and calling Reddthat home!
Open Collective is a service which allows us to take donations, be completely transparent when it comes to expenses and our budget, and allows us some form of idea of how we tracking month-to-month.
Servers are not free, databases are growing, images are uploading and the servers are running smoothly.
This post has been edited to only include relevant information about total funds and “future” plans. Because sometimes, we reach the future we were planning for!
The database service is another story. The database has grown to 1.8GB (on the file system) in the 7 days. Some quick math, makes that 94GB in 1 year’s time. Our current host allows us to addon 100GB of SSD storage for $100/year, which is very viable and will allow us to keep costs down, while planning for our future.
Our current costs are
- Domain: 15 Euro
- Server: $118.80 Aud
- Server Ram Upgrade: $54.50 Aud
- Server: $528.00 Aud
- Wasabi Object Storage: $72 Usd
- Total: ~$830 Aud per year (~$70/month)
That’s our goal. That is the number we need to achieve in funding to keep us going for another year.
PS. Thank you to our donators! Your names will forever be remembered by me: Last updated on 2023-10-03
