    So, if anyone has watched 2 of my threads and replies in the Lounge, I am considering purchasing a Dedicated Server to do some file hosting for BHW as a private area, to avoid attention from the government and so we can have a place to post which isn't deleted or limited and where the hosting managers do not cut off downloads at sight of a DCMA notice, because frankly, most of those who make those threats never follow through with it.

    Anyway, without offering "premium accounts" because I believe the BHW community should have unlimited use without needing to pay, is there any method which could help pay for the server as obviously this isn't a cheap VPS job that needs doing. I am willing to be a little out of pocket, but not the £200 or so it will cost me per month.

    I was thinking maybe put some offers from StrongerAds below and hoping some would be kind enough to help, but that is relying on generosity I guess. All the major Ad networks are obviously a no-go.

    Thoughts?

    Maybe you could set up a donation box. I don't think CPA offers will do well.
