If nobody at all donated any money, I am sure this site would have to shut down the same way as OSBA did!

Yes BA does rake in alot of money, I could donate but I honestly never use the FTP...
Actually if nobody donated it means more money has to come out of my pocket, money which isn't guaranteed to be there. Sure I've managed so far but times have been hard before and I've struggled to find the money to pay. Hell I even had someone ask around for me one month because I had zero money to spare (this was when I wasn't working). Thankfully generous people donated more than enough to pay for the server that month.
The donations aren't necessary but they help me to keep the server online. Because I only work part time now, and its shift work, some months I get paid more than others. If I do the minimum number of shifts, I'm Â£20 short of what I need per month for my bills, and that leaves me nothing spare for myself, plus I'm already short... Thats when times get hard. Fortunately I generally get more shifts than the minimum.
