This site has been amazing! It's such a welcoming, loving community I had to chip in a little bit. It's not much, but it's what I can afford right now. <33 Keep it up, VH!

Love you mods, love the peoples, love this place.

I want to apologize for leaving the donation sidebar go without updates for a few months. I didn't mean to rob you of the satisfaction of seeing the percentage rise as you donated. I should be able to tend to it soon after donations come in again now.


The good news is we're nearly covered for 2016! We only need $14 more and we'll be set.  You guys have been so generous. Thank you so much for helping keep VH going for everyone to use.  


P.S.: I emailed a few of you who didn't give me your character's name. If you donated and don't see your character's name on the Donor list - and want it there - please check your email and write me back with their name. <3

Regarding our server funds:

I stupidly miscalculated what we'd need for 2016 and 2017. (Details below if you're interested).

Result, we were short $45.94 for 2016. 


That came out of our budget for 2017, so we're short that, plus more for 2017. But we've got plenty for now - enough to pay the fees through August at the current rate. 


I'm not asking for donations to cover the difference right now. I'm going to look into our options and see if I can bring down the rate first. After that, I'll know how much we really need.


Just wanted to let you know that the sidebar doesn't accurately represent our funds for this year. 


Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and helped us keep VH online. <3

Sorry about my poor accounting.




When we switched servers last, we had a discounted rate locked in for two years. I forgot to take into account that that discount ended in August. (Our monthly rate went up by $10 US at that time. That's +$40 for 2016.


Also? For some reason I had it in my head that the cost was $29 a month, when it's actually 29.99 a month. (I can't believe that trick worked on me.) So for the last I-don't-know-how-many years, I've been reimbursing myself $29 a month. I'm fine with adding those many unwitting $.99 donations to my intentional donations, but I started reimbursing myself with the full amount in July. (Also, our server company now takes Paypal, so no more reimbursing needed. The bill gets paid directly from our Paypal). That's +$5.94 for 2016.


If we stay on this server all this year, we'd need +$131.88 for 2017. I think I should be able to find a comparable or better server closer to our previous rate, so hopefully it won't be that much.

There was an upshot in my weekly meditation class being cancelled (I'll go insane mind you, as I can't manage to meditate on my own...I fall asleep...). It means I have slightly a bit more cash to play around with and I shared my first missed class with VH.

Thank you for the decade(s) of fun. Thank you for introducing me to great people. Keep up the great work. VH is totally brilliant.

Cheers 😍

Thank you so much to our recent donors. <3


We're now on our new server and the old one is cancelled (there were a couple weeks of overlap because I moved us a little sooner than I had planned). The new server cost is $34.98 a month. 


Taking the new price, the previously mentioned shortfall for 2016 & 2017, and recent donations into consideration, we still need a bit more to cover our fees for 2017. We're short $92.07.  I've reset our donation sidebar to reflect only that amount.  (i.e. It doesn't mean we've only got 1% of 2017 paid! We're covered until at least September/October.)
