Sycophant Hex Donations We are striving to make Sycophant Hex a viable fan fiction website for as long as possible. For the past couple of years, we have had a patroness who has shouldered the entire cost of web hosting when the bill came due. This, unfortuntely, is not financially possible any longer. As a result, we have made the hard decision to once again open up donantions to our site. We have created a paypal account which will soley be used to pay for Nexcess.net, our web host server. The bill runs us around $260 a year - which is normally due June 1st.
We understand that many users are unable to donate for various reasons, from not having a job, don't have a credit or a debit card, or simply can't afford to put money into a website.
Although any donations made are sincerely appreciated, there is no and will be no rewards to people who donate.
Since this is a donation (not a purchase or exchange), please be aware that your donations will not generate for you any special interests in Sycophant Hex - you will have no say over how we run the site, what stories are posted, or whether or not someone is granted validated author status.
The only thing close to a reward for donating is a very sincere thank you.
If you have any questions, please contact the help desk at sh.userhelp at gmail.com.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to keep this wonderful archive up and running. I have a couple of questions...what will happen in the unlikely event that the full amount is not reached? And, in the more likely event that more money is raised than is needed this year, will the overage be saved for future years or will something else be done? - FF_Obsessed (2012.09.03 - 05:06PM)
Any amount over the 260 we need for next year's bill (not due until June 2013) will be saved for the following year. The paypal account was created soley for SH use only to pay the nexcess bill. If we don't raise the entire thing, we'll probably do what we did last year - panic and then try to come up with as much as we can ourselves. We were lucky that our old webmistress was able to front the entire bill for this year - but we are fully aware that we cannot expect that every year, so for me, I am trying to set aside at least $10 a month in case we don't raise enough to keep the site going, so that I can pay for it. - celisnebula (2012.09.03 - 06:46PM)
Thank you for making it possible to keep such a wonderful site that has brought me so much joy over years and years alive! I only wish I could give more. - sevs_kitten (2012.09.04 - 02:32PM)
Thanks for doing so much to keep this site up and running. I am out of job right now, so could not contribute much, but I did contribute as much as I could. THANKS again. - sweetmagiconline (2012.09.04 - 05:28PM)
Done, because seriously, if I paid $1 for every hour I spent on this site, my butt would be broke. When you need more, pass the hat and I'll happily contribute. - Cybrokat (2012.09.05 - 07:51PM)
Its a great way to keep this great site up and running, plus it allows us who use it to pay back the generousity of those who write the stories by keeping it running for more stories. - jaemistoryteller (2012.09.05 - 10:34PM)
Words cannot describe the pleasure this site has given me throughout the years. I give my sincere thanks to all the talented writers who have chosen to share their imaginations with the masses. SS/HG forever! - trekchick (2012.09.07 - 11:53PM)
I would be happy to help, but when I clicked on the [Donate Here] it wouldn't work. Some hang up. - beaweasley2 (2012.09.27 - 11:47PM)
Thank you for this Site! It has provided me with hours of reading pleasure and entertainment for going on eight years now. Thank you, all you talented writers! Please keep the stories coming!
As for donating, I want to, but the Donate Here doesn't seem to be working - has it been deactivated? - Snype Snape 2012-09-29 - Snype Snape (2012.09.29 - 11:13PM)
