I never thought I would be making a post about increasing prices. I feel that the prices we charge for packages are fair and they have kept the server running for a long time, so hey why change them?
Currently the US dollar is worth way more than the Canadian dollar. This has caused the actual amount many Americans have been paying to be much, much lower than before. Until recently the US dollar has been basically equal to the Canadian dollar, because of this it never occured to me to offset the prices by a little whenever it changes.
However, the recent fluctuations of the US dollar have made it harder to support the server. A large percent of donations come from America and I can't ignore losing 10$ every donation.
THIS IS NOT PERMANENT
I want to make sure everyone knows that this isn't me trying to grab a little extra from everyones pockets. When the US dollar and Canadian dollar equalize again I will change the prices back.
To put this into perspective, the gold donation package used to be paying for about have the servers monthly payment, now it barely pays for a third. I understand if many of you are upset... I am as well.
