Finally, in September, thanks to a dozen of comunity members' generosity, the server is fully paid for 2019. For 2020 I'm thinking in setup a patreon allowing subscribers access to especial features, especially bot comands.
Again, thank you very much!
I started this site in February 2016 as a hobby, to easily check my statistics and those of my clan. At first only in Portuguese, and very few clans. I didn't even used a database, only a bunch of text files, as there was so few data.
Then, more people in Brazil started to use the site, and ask to include their clans. And soon some people around the world asked to include their clans, and I delivered an English version. Right now, 2019 April, I'm tracking about 5,000 active clans and 53,000 players. I'm using a 30GB database and serving more than 170,000 pages per month!
But the best of it all: I became part of a large community of players. I'm still far from Unicum, but sometimes people send me messages at the start of matches. It's rewarding.
In 2018 I created pages with detailed statistics for each tank, and the players' performance pages, recent and overall. Also in 2018 I created the Discord Bot, highly popular, e made the entire project Open Source. 2018 was a great year!
But there is real life, outside of World of Tanks, and I need to pay for the server that hosts this site. It's not much, I use SmarterASP.NET and they provide a stellar and affordable service, but it's not free. For the next year, keeping everything where it is, it just cost me US$279.84. A handfull of very generous donors just paid the bill!
I will take off the message asking for donations from the pages' top as soon as I can recover these hosting costs.
I'm asking you to help me. I don't want to ruin the layout putting ads. So, any amount would be appreciated.
Donate with PayPal
Thank you very much for using my site, reading this page, and contributing!
yours, JP Negri
