Donate Today!

Today I am launching a campaign to get people to financially endorse a renovation of this website. We all want this website to run at peak efficiency, so we need to respond to this latest outage with an investment from you, the investors! If you analyze the server we just need everyone to pitch in a few dollars.

If you don't want a paywall, pop-ups, or commercials so that @alsciende (he's not trying to make a profit) can keep this website afloat then we need to demonstrate that we can help him restructure before there is another overload!

This needs to be decklist of the week.

Commenting so it becomes decklist of the week.

Thanks for making this as it made me realize I'd never donated. I felt appalled at that given how much I use this site.

I've donated to Alsciende before, but I did it again anyway. This is too valuable a resource to the Netrunner community to lose, and we owe a lot to him for making and maintaining it.

For those wondering, you can donate by sending money via Paypal to paypal.me/alsciende, or just click the link at the bottom of this page.

It's also worth noting the effect this has had on other LCG communities. Other communities have used this website as a model for their deck-building sites.

Give here, and give to JNET.

A shameless karma grab, but it's for a great cause! Liked, subscribed, and donated.

I'm all for donating, but I'm not really sure what this person is taking about. I don't think there's anything about nrdb or something the creator can do that could have prevented what happened from what I understand. His web host suffered some catastrophic event. status.digitalocean.com/incidents/8sk3mbgp6jgl

Donate money if you want to, but no money or "restructuring" will have an effect on future site availability per the stated reason from April 1 from what it looks like.

So just donate simply because it's cool and extremely helpful and you want to support it.

We know that there wasn't a monetary reason for NRDB being down and that it was out of Alsciende's hands, and more donations wouldn't prevent that particular issue in the future.

That isn't the point, though. The point is that NRDB's outage was a good opportunity to remember just how valuable a resource it is to the community, and Alsciende deserves our support and thanks for keeping it running. Personally, I was trying to find some teaching decks to help a friend learn the game during NRDB's outage, and it was a lot more difficult. I don't want to take this site for granted, so I want to support it however I can. In this case, it means happily making another donation to support its continued operation.

I understand. I don't mean to be a downer or dissuade anybody from donating at all. All, please do!

"We all want this website to run at peak efficiency, so we need to respond to this latest outage with an investment from you, the investors!"

This just sounded to me like "if you donate, you'll be helping keep this from happening again." which didn't seem to be entirely factual to me.

Is there a way to do automatic monthly payments like with patreon?

Also tossed in some credits. It's good to remind the community every now and then that it's okay to pay (what you can) for the things that you use.

As much as I use Jnet and Netrunnerdb, they've earned and deserve my money.
