Would you give up a cup of coffee for Sharksworld?

Friends, I have a dream and I need YOU to help me make it happen.

I’ll cut to the chase. Sharksworld, over the course of the eight years that it’s been alive, has grown a fair bit and outgrew the capacity of shared hosting platforms some time ago. Keeping a site this big running requires a dedicated server and while not prohibitively expensive, covering the cost of hosting and other running expenses of the site is becoming increasingly difficult.

I have tried hard over the last few years to secure enough advertising revenue to cover my costs but this is proving more and more difficult and time consuming each year. I do not ever want to subject you guys to annoying, misleading and just downright “bad” advertising on this site and my dream, in fact, is to provide the best possible experience to all of my readers; one that does not, in fact, include any advertising whatsoever. I would love Sharksworld to be self-funding and self-sufficient without needing to rely on advertisers and this is the dream which I need help in order to realise.

Friends What I’m looking for is readers and posters to sign up to become a “Friend of Sharksworld”. The commitment from your side is to pay me £1 a month (that’s roughly R25, or the cup of a price of fancy coffee). If I can get just 50 readers to sign up and commit to this very small regular monthly amount, I can cover all hosting costs for the site and also have enough spare for any incidental site-related expenses. Of course, I’d love it more than 50 of you felt able to support me in this way. I like to feel that this site fills an important gap and that giving up a very small monthly in order to help keep it running is not too much to ask.

I hope you all agree.

Friends of Sharksworld will get a unique image above their profile picture. In addition, if any Friend in good standing needs me to use Sharksworld’s reach (via the website, FaceBook or Twitter) to publicise a (good) cause on their behalf, I will gladly do so.

Please click the button below to set up your monthly payment via PayPal, or (of course) do email me if you have any questions whatsoever.

Be a friend – buy me a coffee!





Note: Any UK-based Friends might prefer to use the GoCardless solultion, which sets up a Direct Debit direct from your bank to mine and thus avoids a lot of PayPal’s charges. You’ll need a UK bank account to use this service, but if you do, you can sign up as a Sharksworld Friend by clicking here.

  • Rob, why is your hosting so expensive? Have you tried any local sites in SA?
    I use TEXO.co.za and they cheap and excellent personal help when you have issues.

  • @Uli Boelie (Comment 1) : it’s expensive because I have a dedicated server. As I said in the article, Sharksworld is too big and too DB intensive to run on a shared hosting platform.

  • @robdylan (Comment 2) : Rob, just a question, which I think might make it easier to contribute to the site, can there be a way in which we can use “airtime” from our service providers to donate to the site, like they use with our Rhino project like sms the word Sharks world to a number and you donate like R15 or R20 or which ever way?

  • @robdylan (Comment 2) : I still don’t see why your DB is overloaded. Does the amount of comments have something to do with it?

  • @Henkb (Comment 3) : Henk, I’m looking at asking people to commit to a regular monthly amount. That’s the best way for me to actually ensure I can continue to provide the site. There would be a million ways to accept a one-off donation, but that doesn’t really help me much long term.

    I haven’t lived in SA for a long time, I’ll admit, but my impression is that R25 really isn’t a lot of money anymore and I’m hoping that at least some of you would be able to sacrifice that amount on a monthly basis? I certainly wouldn’t miss £1 going out of my account every month to support a site that I enjoyed reading every day.

  • @Uli Boelie (Comment 4) : It’s the amount of traffic. Every time a page is viewed it involves several queries against a very large database and all of that is intensive.

    Trust me, mate. I’ve been running this site for 8 years and I know that any shared hosting platform would suspend me within the first month. It has happened before.

    The point of this article was not to get into an argument defending my cost model, though. It was to reach out, in sincerity and good faith, to my readers to ask them to contribute.

  • @robdylan (Comment 5) : That’s true and I understand completely, and I’m sure that everyone one here would agree with me in saying the site is exceptional in the reading material and news we receive daily, just thinking of a way to also assist in getting you regular $, as I know from personal experience that if I could pay for an app by means of my airtime it makes it easier and convenient, maybe if, we have to give like R25 every 30 days you log into the site via mobile?

  • Hi Rob, I’m totally prepared to pay you R25 a month. I tried to enter all my details. The system won’t accept my Discovery Visa card. I tried 5 times. I’m going to try with my American Express and if that does not work I don’t know what I’ll do since I do not have a Pay Pal account.

  • Now I’m sort of in trouble. At the beginning of 2015 or thereabouts my brother invited me to join him in a computer business called ASN.
    It turned out too complicated for me. However I was keen to get three classical dvd sets from AMAZON. So my brother suggested that I buy them through ASN. In other words I would access AMAZON from my ASN account. I earned a couple of dollars in ASN as a result. Now ASN operates with a paypal account and I remember now that they asked me to open a Paypal account so that when I earned money through ASN they’d put it straight my Paypal account. I looked in the little black book with all my usernames and passwords and found my Paypal username. My email address and Amex card are both linked with the Paypal account. But I did not earn enough through ASN for them to put the earnings into the Paypal account. So there are zero dollars in the Paypal account.
    So now when I tried to register on your site to pay the R 25 with my Amex account it told me to use my Paypal account because my email address and Amex card details are linked with Paypal.
    I’m totally at a loss now! I’m almost totally illiterate with all these problems I seriously am at a loss now as to how I can pay the R 25. Can somebody help me.

    I’ve given up with this ASN thing long ago because it is so complicated and time consuming (something of which I have very litte to spare), but it seems that seems that my Amex is so linked with my email address on some non existing Paypal account.

    I have a dormant Telkom email account because when I signed up for email and internet with telkom I told them that I wanted to keep my gmail address. Maybe I could use the Telkom email address with my Amex.
    I have to go now and I can’t even think about this until … I don’t even know when. It’s not easy running a home and working and looking after a 90 year old Mom. However I’m not giving up on this!

  • Done! Rob, I’ve run a website for years now with a fraction of your traffic and I know how much of a pain in the ass it can be. My hosting provider suffered a security breach just before Christmas resulting in two websites (the other I help maintain) being down for days. The support team were picking up the pieces of their administrative backend and couldn’t be bothered with their customers. Shared hosting sucks for many reasons outside of their arbitrary limitations and their SLA’s which mean zilch when its crunchtime.

    Point being, it’s really little to ask when one considers the effort you put into the site combined with its very impressive uptime which doesn’t just magically happen.

  • Rob, my PayPal account is connected to my bank account, not a credit card. It won’t allow me to continue the transaction without adding one, which I don’t want to do. Like Benji, I would gladly do a year sub if you give me your PP email.

    Oh and reading through the comments I’d like to compliment all in contributing to the new “friend of sharksworld” or FoS Logo. The sharksword logo makes it look like a steming hot cup of coffee. I think it works really nicely with the theme Rob picked in asking for the contrinutions.

  • How much would it be to get a blue cup with a jumping Bull?

    The airport thing actually happened to me once and I wasn’t even confused. This guy dragged my bag for me and all I worried about was that he might be hijacking it. At domestic check-in, we went straight to the front of the line. I handed him $5, the smallest bill I had and he did not appear very happy about it. Perhaps because the dollar was like only R6 at the time.Then he intimated that I should also pay the check-in clerk for letting me jump the line, but I said I was happy to go wait at the back. She checked me in for free, but since I felt a little embarrassed, I continued to pretend that I was an American.

  • @fyndraai (Comment 163) : @fyndraai (Comment 164) : very interesting but worrying reading. Must agree that kids should play in age groups with a set weight limit.

  • @JD (Comment 165) :

    My thinking is a little more radical. Adults should be discouraged and kids prohibited from playing.

    This is no different from other activities that were once widespread. Tobacco use; Drinking and driving; Lead pipes; Kids not in car seats; Burning fossil fuels; etc. The argument that we’ve done this for a long time or that it’s part of our culture, carries no weight once the risks are well known and widely accepted as real.

  • @fyndraai (Comment 166) : yes we all know it’s dangerous and kids must be protected as far as possible but I do think before outlawing it a bit more than one study should be made. Protective head gear (like in armature boxing) limited contact for juniors etc can also be looked into.

    I could go on about why your model is so much better but it would turn into a rant about how irresponsible ad serving corps are. Cup of coffee for malware/ad free site that I visit on a daily basis? It’s a no brainer!
