The company who's banners we have been running for two months, Meloads, stiffed us on the over $500 they owe us. They have not answered any emails for the last 4 weeks, and the bill we submitted remains unpaid almost two weeks beyond their promised date.
This has caused a bit of a pinch, to say the least, although we were able to pay the server bill at the end of last month by sacrificing other things. Last month brought in $35 in donations, which we are thankful for, but it was one of the lightest months on record.
We have replaced the Meloads banners with offers from Amazon, which are fun and seem to be doing well, but they will not be paying for 60 days. We are also working on obtaining other legitimate advertisers, but even when found they too will have net 30 or 60 payment delays.
If we can't raise enough in donations to safely keep things running we will have to allow some distasteful ads and more aggressive popups - which pay well, and quickly, but are not user friendly at all and disrupt the site experience. They are also very hard to monitor and keep clean as their providers really don't care about users.
PayPal has been returned as a donation option, and Google Pay added, as well as crypto if desired. Any amount helps! You can goHEREto help out. PMub_kmawith any questions, or use the CONTACT form.
