Twitch Bolt On Fundraiser - Target Met !! Thank You All !!

Eve Radio News

Like I mentioned in my last posting, the last 9 months have been pretty hard on us at Eve Radio. As such it's become increasingly difficult to finance any but the most urgent upgrades which means money for bolt on extras is simply not available.

Unfortunately, one of these bolt on extras is a rather important bit of kit that would allows us to properly enter the Twitch TV streaming arena with a 24/7 relayed broadcast complete with Eve Online video backdrop and useful in game companion content. With it will will be able to provide automated content for the casual Eve Online Twitch viewer as well as introduce a whole new audience to Eve Radio and it's live Eve themed content.

As we are blessed with clever chaps at GRN Media we foresee being able to turn a simple video broadcast of Eve Online into something both entertaining and informative while paired with our decade long running audio content.

Only problem is, we can't afford to finance it ourselves at this stage and the fear is if we don't get external funding we may miss what could be our last, best opportunity to turn things around.

The widget here displays our current target donation goal as well as it's current progress. As you can see, it's a fairly modest amount we're looking for in the grand scheme of things since we're not big fans of fleecing our already generous user base. We regret needing to do this and don't feel good about it but our backs are pretty much against the wall here.

While we could go on without ever breaking into Twitch, to not do so would be a missed opportunity and one we would probably regret.

So, once more, we ask for those among you who have the means and desire to drop a buck or two our way to please do so and help us help ourselves out of this mire.

Thank's again for your continued support, it's much appreciated.

Good news everyone, we're at the 50% stage after 36 hours which is fantastic. Thank you all for your contributions so far. Let's see if we can clear it for the weekend so we can hit the ground running on Monday.

Worry not, Evehost is us. It's all built on the same backbone that supports Eve Radio so you know it'll be fast and efficient. Supports great too (astoundingly as it's mainly Diaego) so you can't really go wrong.

hey guys. Been listening on and off since 2006 when I first got big into EVE. I got your email rally cry, and was curious about your exact relationship with Eve-host. Been debating moving my current web host when it expires, and thought I should see if I might bring my business your way, if they be part of your network...

Nobody is negligent, least of all those who have supported us one way or another at any time during our ten years. Everybody is important whether they subscribe or not, tune in on a regular basis or just casually, hell even those who are critical all play their part positively unless they are complete douches.

End of the day everyone is great whether they directly support us with donations, subscriptions or just plain old listening in.

As long as folks are having fun then it's worth keeping going.

Hi, and sorry for my negligence.

My premium subscribtions died out, due to low personal financing around marts and I was postponing the re-entris simply because i wanted to build my economy better.

When I now hear you're in real trouble, I'll find the money, heck it's 3 bucks a month, and what you provide and have provided me during the past 10 years is not to be taken ligthly.

I'm here for the music you can mine your roids to. And I'll stay here when the roids are gone.
