A Cozy & Cheerful Ballbusting & Cbusting Social Network
SEPT. 20, 2014 DONATION FEE $893
On August 20, 2013 I made the last payment for the site. We currently have till Sept. 20, 2014 to make a payment of $893 to fulfill our membership service dues to our Parent company NING and our domain.
Since January 1, 2014, 10 people have donated up to $346, so we need to raise about $547. If people band together we can achieve our goal. All we ask is for a minimum of $3. If we make over the $547 amount then Mallory and I will keep the profit... Which is ONLY Fair! Whats usually left over is pennies so please do not give us a hard time about it. If you care for this site and feel it brings value to you then please donate to keep it running. Thanks!
Relax my Mal Mal its not as crazy as you think! :)
LOOKS LIKE GOODBYE
As most of you know, KITG survives by donation only. This website is owned by Ning, who charges us a huge yearly fee to keep us online. Every year in July, we ask that members donate to keep the site going. The fee is due around late August and is about a thousand dollars, depending on the specifics. With 7,000 members here, we should be able to cover that easily. But, the reality is not everyone wants to donate and every year we just barely make it. Sad, but true.
This year, we have a new problem. As you may have noticed, there was no Donation Period. KITG was created five years ago by Dvhour, my site partner/friend. I helped him first behind the scenes, from the beginning, until I took on the role of Site Admin a few months in. We both have contributed and collaborated on ideas for the site and it has evolved nicely over the years. As the years have passed, DV has had less and less time to give to the site, due to work projects and family obligations. I will always have love for my friend, but the reality is that I have been carrying the site for the past two to three years. He checks in behind the scenes once in a while, but I believe in showing a presence and have done so nearly every single day. Lately though, I have been been wrapped up in several job and family situations, including being the caregiver to a very sick family member. This is taking up all of my time and some days I have no internet access (which is why videos were piling up to be approved). DV is aware of my situation, but as I've said, he is rarely here. He is not the bad guy; sometimes life gets in the way.
Here's the deal: DV is the one who handles the Donation Period every year; all notices from Ning go to him because he is the Site Creator. I have been reminding him many, many times since June that we need to get this going. We haven't spoken much lately, so I leave him messages and sometimes catch him on g-chat, where he has assured me several times that he would take care of this. As I told him, I've been doing 90% of the work, so all I ask is that he do the Donations. Again, he assured me he would. But, here we are quickly approaching the end of August and I have heard nothing from him since August 3rd. So dear members, I felt it was time that I be straightforward with all of you and tell you the truth: I do not know what is going to happen to KITG. I do not know how much time we have left online. I don't have specifics on deadlines, I only know that our fee is usually due by the end of August. If Ning does not receive its payment, I have no idea how long it will be before they take us offline.
I wanted you to know that I tried...and tried...and tried, but it is out of my hands now. If this is indeed the end, and with every day that passes, it's looking more and more like it is, I want to go out with truth. Dvhour laid out the foundation, and I think I fleshed out the basics and gave this place a personality. Yeah, admittedly at times that personality was borderline bitchy, but gottdamn it's hard to keep this shit going day to day, dealing with 7,000 different member personalities, enforcing the rules, keeping the troublemakers out, going through loads of new material and member applications every.single.day. But I thank DV for trusting me enough to run the site.
The fun part was decorating the homepage and chatting with my beloved Chatmonsters :) I've met some really cool peeps here and even had an adventure or two (meow ;) I've learned a lot from you and I thank you sincerely for your candor. I shared a lot with you too, and THAT is what I am most proud of, that DV and I created a place where we all could feel comfortable and BE FREE to talk and share and express ourselves in a fun and friendly community who share a love of this wonderful fetish. All the time and energy, all the blood, sweat and tears...it was all worth it to have shared this with you.
Someone here once told me that I was the heart and soul of this place. From the heart and soul, I thank him...and you. May you all find your bb Nirvana.
