Changes to Livetodai.com
As of up until now hosting for livetodai.com has been a free service provided to the community, this hosting service is ceasing late December and has left the admin team in the situation to fund the costs of the site.
We have been discussing options and are working behind the scenes to make this as affordable as possible, the site is now running on a lower end server that may suffer “slow downs” during peak usage. This will be monitored and if it becomes unreasonable we will re-evaluate.
What does this mean for our community?
In the short term we have enough funding to continue the site on for 6+ months, we are hoping coming into the new year we will be able to commit some more personal funding towards the site and also come up with ideas about funding the site from the community in ways the community is happy to contribute.
Some ideas are:
- Funding from donations, with possible rewards such as L2D Badges, Members lounge etc
- Funding from meets, where a race meet is had there will be a small portion of costs contributed to the running of the site
- Merchandise - Stickers, Shirts etc
During the transition period there will be some outages, all outages will be communicated as best as possible.
We need your feedback.
