As you may have noticed, Shayara.com hasn't been up in a while. Reason being, it was being hosted for free, and the institution that discovered that it was hosting it cut us off.
Yarr! I am a pirate.
It's important to us that we get Shayara.com back up and running. The site has been totally redesigned with lots of cool stuff, including that clickable map of the city. We'll have a forum and a store, too.
All of this requires, well, monies. Filthy lucre. And m0usegrrl and I are starving artists of the unemployed and/or barely employed variety.
The hosting we want is Crazy Domain Insane on DreamHost. Two-year prepaid is $190.80; one-year prepaid is $119.40; and month-to-month would be $59.90 to set up and $9.95/mo thereafter. Obviously, two-year prepaid would be ideal.
We do not have $200 lying around here. I checked under the bed and everything!
So, dear reader, we are asking for your help. Please, please, throw a few bucks in the hat to get us up and running. I've got the story, she's got the art - all we need is that wad of cash to get started.
In exchange, you'll get -
* Well, everyone will get a kickass webcomic.
* All sponsors will be listed in Shayara's post office, with the link of your choice (within reason - no hardcore porn!)
* Special content will be provided for Silver ($25), Gold, ($50), and Platinum ($100) Level sponsors. Mouse and I haven't figured out what that'll be yet.
Please help us get our story out there. Any amount helps.
EDIT: We are there. It's covered. Wow, you guys... thank you so much. :) *is teary*
