SIP has always been and will continue to be driven by the activity and contributions of individual members. However, it’s not enough to keep the lights on in our corner of the Internet; we depend on financial support to fund website operations. Thanks to the generosity of a few members, we have been able to cover hosting fees since July 7, 2011.
Our first priority for donated funds is to cover the yearly hosting and domain fees we incur to keep the website online. Any and all excess funds are funneled back to the group in the form of prizes for competitions and rewards for our most dedicated champions of the community for their thankless work.
As a small token of appreciation for our benefactors, we offer a premium subscription of varying terms to our community forum, where subscribed members can exclusively use the following features:
- Custom avatar
Access to a shoutbox
Suppression of all advertisements on the forum
These features are offered to all of our benefactors regardless of term length. For members that donate more than $20 USD, they are awarded a special ribbon to display on their profile.
We offer the following term lengths:
Thank you for considering donating to SIP to support the site you love, and guarantee our future!
