I’ve not made an appeal for donations for a while now. A lot of our technical adjustments to Slugger, including moving our server to the US in the last six months, have helped reduce our costs considerably.The TypeKey commenting system is gradually running in, and we’re beginning to see the return to the kind of vigourous debate (over 1000 comments per week) we saw before June, when we were completely overrun by spam.
We now have another upgrade to install to make this system even easier to use. If you’d like to donate a small amount to help cover this, and the ongoing server costs, then just hit the Donate button on the left hand side and send us what you can.
