AVEN Server Fundraiser

Recommended Posts

michaeld

As part of Asexual Awareness Week, David Jay put together this fundraiser for the AVEN server. It's been on the front page of AVEN and our Facebook for a while. It's no longer AAW but I figure it deserves a thread here too.

https://www.gofundme.com/aaw2017

 

Many of you will remember how flaky our previous server was, and will appreciate how immeasurably more stable our new cloud based server is. It even held up during AAW itself - including when we had a large spike because of the media coverage.

 

We greatly appreciate anything people can donate towards ensuring the continued stability of our servers.

 

Thanks and :cake:,

Michael

 

PS. Thanks to those in chat who pointed out this deserves its own thread.

At the end of a few documentary—or fictional—films (that were based on a real celebrity's life who had a medical condition), some briefly listed charity websites (which had to do with either the topic raised in the documentary or film people had just watched or helping cure the medical condition mentioned in it, that the documentary or that the fictional film was based on)—before listing the cast and crew credits—in case viewers were interested in learning more or donating to that charity/charities.

 

I wonder whether the new, upcoming documentary, "Asexuals," would be able to list this fundraiser, too, at the end, if AVEN needed to raise more funds.

Clearly it's what the fans want, given the name of the latest donor :lol:

I could volunteer not to make a video, perhaps?

 

More seriously, I wonder how many users really know about this? I'm here a lot and only stumbled on it. Could a common post in every forum be created?

A few of us have it in our signatures, but those don't show on mobile (phone). It has gotten buried under other things. :mellow:
