ORIGINAL POST Dec. 31st, 2019
Some of you have emailed or messaged us about the notice that was put on the Donation and Feature page's back on June 15th, 2019 stating "All donations will expire on June 15th, 2020".
We built the site because between 2013-2015 over a dozen sites closed including some of the biggest and most popular like BlogTV, Stickam, JustinTV (JTV), Uvlog, Justcast, and several other's. At the time there was a need for a site like this as there wasn't many options for us to do our shows being we had all worked at a few of the remaining sites and quit. The site's that were left lacked many the basic features we wanted in a site including 24/7 moderation, support, co-hosting, emotes, audio only with slideshow, private & password shows etc.
The original co-op of broadcasters and coders that built the site only planned on operating it for five (5) years, as these sites are becoming absolute with so many other means of social networking and streaming. Instead of having over 20 live shows daily with and 36+ on weekends, we seen a sharp drop off after losing most of the vaping shows due to the new regulations they had to follow and a general decrease in people using these sites except for mostly gaming now. June of 2020 will be our Five (5) year anniversary and end of operation date, however some of the staff want to keep it operating past that date.
The current staff would most likely stay on and continue operating the site with a few minor changes in some duties and responsibilities. We needed all donator status's to expire on the same date in case the site did not see a increase in the amount of live shows compared to 2019 (we have seen a recent increase), and we stopped operations in June.
Beginning Jan.1st-Jan.15th, 2020 we will accept donations again, but only for a Six (6) month period expiring on June 15th, 2020. I hope this clears up any questions you may have concerning this matter. .
