As most of you would have known, iSUBS is currently running low in finances and may no longer be able to support our server if nothing is being done. We usually keep a three month safety period but it seems our safety period is running a bit short. We thank you for constantly supporting us since day one and we wouldn't have gotten this far without all your help. While we have openly pleaded for more donations, we would have to take further actions to help us.
Since all of you are a part of iSUBS, we would like to seek your opinion before we carry out any plans. What we have currently come down to is the following options:
1. Add advertisements* to our page (see note below)
2. Downgrade our server and change to a cheaper host provider
So please take the poll above and let us know what you think.
I would just like to remind all of you that iSUBS work for FREE. NONE of our subbing team is paid and all donations go entirely to maintaining our servers.
If you would like to have iSUBS continue provide subs for all of you, we really need your help and support.
Thank you very much.
