Doctor Who TV is creating wibbly wobbly, timey wimey stuff

Doctor Who TV has been serving Whovians news, reviews and features daily since the revival of the show itself in 2005. Over the years it has grown to become one of the more popular Doctor Who fansites on the net.

But now we really could use your support…

Unfortunately the harsh reality is that popular websites today cost a lot of time and money. There is always the requirement for faster and more reliable equipment so the server can hopefully stay online during a big breaking announcement, trailer, or when the latest episode airs and everyone jumps onto the site at the exact same moment.

The readers have come to expect daily updates, 365 days a year, which has meant that a lot of time goes into it. Unfortunately we don’t have a real life TARDIS so keeping the site going is a full-time endeavour that is no longer sustaining itself.

The simple fact is, without any form of direct support now the site will only be able to exist in a severely limited form, or worse, be forced to close.

Aren’t there ads to help with costs?

Early on when the site was still relatively small it was able to support itself acceptably enough through ads. However things have changed dramatically in the past couple of years. The costs have gotten more and more expensive and the ads are simply no longer covering things as companies cripple sites by wanting more and more invasive ads for less. There’s also the major issue that many readers block ads these days.

We could push out more and more adverts in the hope it would boost things, but we really don’t want to go to those lengths. There is no guarantee the ads will generate enough, and more and more ugly ads will only harm the site and put people off from visiting permanently.  We're hoping we can eventually remove them entirely.

So what can you do to help?

The Cybermen (aka tech support) can get to work upgrading the site, hopefully ensuring faster, more reliable operation for the future, and eventually, world domination*.
