What do the site donations go towards?

This is a discussion on What do the site donations go towards? within the General PS3 Discussion forum, part of the Everything PlayStation; Is it to save up for a massive PSN code giveaway or something? I've always wondered why you could donate....

    It goes towards the admins dream to build their own theme park, with blackjack, and hookers! Seriously though, it goes towards paying to host/run the site. Bandwidth is not free and I'm pretty sure that they dont own the servers, so they have to pay monthly bills for that.

    noob question

    noob answers

    The money goes to the running of this site. From both keeping those ads away to the costs needed to keep the servers up. I dont know what specifically, but who cares. We all need to help keep this site up.

    i agree that we all need to help keep our site alive that we love so much. it's awesome being able to surf ad free. but i have a problem with the donations. they were not only suppose to pay for the site but be put back into the site via giveaways and stuff. well i've been here for 3 1/2 years and only seen one giveaway sponsored by the site and i don't even remember a winner being announced. so until the site giveaways start happening like promised i'm not donating any more of my hard earned money. i somehow feel ripped off. and i'm not knocking the admins. i appreciate all they do cause i know the site is expensive to run. i just don't want to feel like i'm funding someone's drinking habbitt

    Exactly. If you want to keep this place alive, then donate! Problem?

    Its taken you this long to figure this out.

    Donations will NEVER be used for giveaways, back when this site was good (pre-reset), donations were coming in well over the goal amount yet we never saw shit.

    Submerge also said pre-reset that they needed more money than what the goal amount is to run the site and if they didnt make it the site would be shutdown. Seems since the reset they manage to run in on the donations they get (which hardly ever hit target), seems like we go a bullshit statement once again.

    Websites aren't free so I would assume that's where the money goes.

    Haha. If only. I understand that this site isn't the same as it used to be, but that's no reason to not donate. Plus, members have been running site giveaways, so that takes care of that.

    Call me naive, call me a "poor soul" or whatever, but I will continue to enjoy this site post reset. Granted it's not the same as it used to be, and most likely won't ever be, but something still keeps me coming back

    no that's not right either. just because a member throws a site giveaways doesn't give the site the right to not have site giveaways themselves. if a member throws a giveaway then that's money out of their pocket. the whole purpose of donations is to keep the site running and to have giveaways. well the cup has runeth over many times and no giveaways. i understand you want to help keep the site running and so do i but like i said i'm not donating anymore of my hard earned money till i get what i was promised in the beginning. and i was there when it was promised. been here over 3 years.
