Recently, we shut down FFFddl for five days due to the server running out of bandwidth and us not wanting to pay the expensive overage charges that it would cost. Now, Gratipay has shut its doors to individuals who’ve been receiving payment through it in favour of teams, so we no longer have a stable source of donation income required to keep the DDL server going. Which leaves us with Flattr, a platform that charges more fees than Gratipay did. We urge all of our Gratipay donors to cancel their Gratipay subscriptions to us because we haven’t been receiving anything ever since two weeks ago when they suspended payments. You should be able to redraw your remaining balance if you no longer wish to remain on the Gratipay platform.
That aside, the fate of the DDL, after the 30th of June will be decided by this poll. Donator votes will count for more, but please do not abuse that. We know how many people donate per month. If you’re a donator and would like to express your thoughts regarding this issue, please feel free to leave a comment or drop me an email. We are also accepting donations through alternative options right now, please email me for more information. Help on this month’s bills would be greatly appreciated. We have not yet to receive anything via Gratipay the entire month.
Also, recruitment is still open. We’re taking Translators and Typesetters. Typesetters are expected to have experience, so please do not apply if you do not already know how to typeset.
