After more than 7 years of running our services, we have to say that it has not been so bad yet.
Due to Google’s policy rules, we had to remove our adds from some pages.
In addition, we received a notification from YouTube that we can no longer earn money on videos uploaded on our channel, because we have not reached the threshold of 4000 hours of total watch time in the last 12 months and 1000 subscriptions.
Our income is melting down every month, like snow in the spring. We are not in a position to finance everything from our tiny wallet. More than half goes to bills, ie: rent, utilities (gas, electricity, water), taxes, fuel, and food. A problem is when we need to buy medicine or we have additional bills to pay which pops out sometimes. There is also problem with our server which is overloaded and still stood almost every day, as we mentioned last time – we did not collect much after that, not really.
For this reasons, we have to ask you for monthly support – a minimum to pay basic bills at least.
The minimum is 500 PLN/~135 USDolars/~125 Euros every month, which could help us pay bills for services and media used to keep our job on and buy small equipment such as mice, batteries, USB sticks and other things.
Starting from January 2020, the minimum is 1000 PLN/~270 USDolars/~250 Euros every month, please.
Starting from June 2020, the minimum is 2600 PLN/~700 USDolars/~650 Euros every month, please : sparkylinux.org/sparky-coronavirus/
Starting from January 2021, the minimum is 2800 PLN/~800 USDolars/~670 Euros every month, please : sparkylinux.org/2020-annual-payment-of-our-server/
All we do for you is free, but living is NOT.
So, we will place a progress bar in the right side panel to let you know how is going with donations. It will be kept to the end of every month to illustrate how much money we collected.
From this month, we will also publish monthly summaries of the donations.
So, consider monthly small or bigger donation, which will let us working for all of you long time.
To thank you for you wonderful gesture we will send (for those who will want to, and send us 20 Euros min.) a sticker-reflector with SparkyLinux.
Thanks a lot!
