Moria needs your help to keep going.
Up to this point, Moria has been running in terms of the small amount that comes in from its advertising. The considerably larger running costs of the site including such things as hosting fees, domain registration, movie tickets etc have been made up out of my own pocket.
I havent asked anything back for this in the thirteen years that Moria has been online. However, it has now come to a point where I can no longer afford to do this.
The harsh reality is that I either have to find a new source of income to cover Morias running costs or else the site will be forced to go offline sometime in the new year.
To this extent, I would appeal to Morias fans, readers or just those who think it is worth keeping Moria online to give something to help us sustain the site. What we ask is not much at all.
What You Can Do to Help
Moria currently has around 7000 visitors per day. If each visitor for simply one day would contribute a single dollar, this would not only cover the running costs for the site for the entire year in terms of hosting fees, ticket prices and so forth but would also allow for much needed computer upgrades.
To help us expand the site, we would ask of each person a single dollar. This is less than the price of a daily newspaper or your morning coffee. Ideally, we would like if you could offer more than that. If you think the site has any worth, then please help out.
The reality of such an appeal is that not everybody will do this. We wont punish if you dont contribute anything. The site will remain free as long as it is possible to do so. Its just that I cant continue to keep financing it and without your support and generosity then Moria is going to go offline. If you can offer more than one dollar, we would certainly appreciate it. Obviously, the more that you can offer the better. In return for your generosity, we have a variety of plans and unique rewards for contributors.

Dont Go Just Yet, There is More
On the other hand, why be concerned for merely sustaining the existing site when it would be possible to do far more than that. Help Moria expand.
