    So you probably noticed the extreme slowness of the website and multiple other problems during the last couple of days...

    Our websites are consuming too much server ressources, and our webhost doesn't want to host us anymore. We are taking more than 60% of the server ressources and we are killing their servers.

    So we will probably need a new server, a very powerful server, probably a dedicated one... A dedicated server cost a shitload of money and i don't want to put shitty ads on the websites so i don't really know how we will manage to pay it...

    I had to desactivate some of the websites hosted by our network to lower the server charge, it should help while we try to find a solution for the other websites...

    All of our websites together are getting between nearly 40,000 to 50,000 unique visitors every day... i guess we are being victim of our success

    IF YOU WANT TO HELP US, PLEASE DONATE MONEY OR BUY A T-SHIRT !!!

    Well, if you have to result in one or two adds, ask other "anarchist" sites for banners, not bands, but other informative pages like submedia.tv. Worth a shot.

    Ill be sending some money. :rock:

    Anarchists websites usually doesn't want to pay for ads, plus it would be hard to make an arrangement and wouldn't give us a lot of money.

    Best way would be to use google ads but i hate this shit, last time we almost had to put ads on Pirate-punk.net and instead i prefered to pay the hosting fees with my own pocket

    a dedicated server is definatly too much for us, instead i'll try to get a different shared hosting for each of the websites of our network (right now anarcho-punk.net is sharing the same server than pirate-punk.net)

    i'm pretty sure anarcho-punk.net will survive for now if it have its own server because the forum have only a couple of thousands of posts. But when we will reach 50,000+ posts we will start to have trouble, maybe we will have to buy a vbulletin license because phpBB really sucks. Right now Pirate-punk.net and Resistance.tk are staying alive only because we have a vbulletin forum which is way better than phpbb. If those forums were on phpbb we would be ruined because of hosting fees

    i also thought about sending a mass e-mail to all of the members of the forum to tell them that we have t-shirts for sale, maybe it could help to raise the sales because right now we sell only a few... but i'd need to finish the english version of the shop first

    anyway, thanks to everyone who want to help us, it is much appreciated and will help us to get new servers :)

    Isn't it possible to clean up the forums for old and inactive post's if we risk those 50.000 posts?

    None the less, i'll have a look at you T-shirts of course

    you can link a paypal account to your bank account and then buy a tshirt with it

    or maybe we can arrange something by post

    however, i would have to verify that the company ship to your country

    Yes i'm in sweden but damn that's a lot for shipping! More then the shirts cost... However, if i can't just make a donation without a creditcard, this will be the best i can do at this time i guess, and i want to help as much as i can.
    Any chance there will be any translation to english at the shop? Otherwise i can get some help to translate what i need help understanding but it might take a couple days. Hope we have a little while to save the page...

    yes the shop will have an english version in the future, but for now you can just use google translator

    shipping cost is pretty high, but you can buy up to 3 tshirts without any additional costs
