If I added a donate button to this website (PayPal, for instance), would you give money to support the hosting of this website? Donations would be used to pay the yearly hosting bill, including for improvements such as more server resources.
Shining Force Central does a similar thing, asking users to help support the site:
Currently, I don't have a huge issue footing the bill myself. However, I would like to increase server memory, add automated backups, etc, and this all costs money. So please take a moment to answer to poll (comments would be great too). Then I can look at what options there are based on community feedback.
