Shenmue Dojo Hosting (Please Support Us!)

As most of you are aware, regular members and lurkers alike, Shenmue Dojo is hosted in an ad free environment. To do this however is not cheap and leaves the owner to pay any and all fees out of pocket. Last year we had great support and it ended up in paying for the entire year and then some, however that cycle has already passed (time flies when we're having fun).

The next cycle has snuck up on us and the site is in dire need of some support. In return we promise what we always have, the best Shenmue site on the web in an ad free environment. We will continue to improve as we already have shown by implementing an entirely new shell to the website in addition to new forums and features. With Shenmue HD potentially on the horizon, there is no better place to rejoice or lament as a Shenmue fan.

Thank you for any and all of your support. Donations can be made by clicking the oval orange button on the front page.

The sooner the better as we would like to renew without any hiccups, I've already paid a large chunk of it out of pocket. That part is on me.

How much do you currently pay in hosting costs? I have available web space I can offer to you.

Fuck I wish I could. I no longer have a bank account and use my moms credit card and have to use permission and I only get 200$ a month and have to pay her back. Strapped. Why I have not done it in a while.

I'll donate soon. Right now everything is on a phone and I prefer making transactions on a computer.

Still not working for me. I tried a different browser, emptied the cache, and restarted the browser.

Here's what it looks like when I click the links:

Figured it out. Paypal when you copy and past the link takes it as a timed pay session for the person on that PC. So We cannot link it however go to the main page and click the smallorange oval. That will take you to paypal

Thanks for fixing the confusion Blue.

Please click on the front page, much appreciated. Any and all funds will go towards this hosting fee and if we actually manage to pay it off (which we should, collectively) the rest will go to next years.

I've received two donations thus far, thanks a bunch to those who chipped in. Anything helps.
