Matt "dxprog" Hackmann is creating open source anime websites

If you're here, you probably frequent either AnimeBracket or RedditBooru, both sites that I have created and run in my spare time. Both started out relatively small, but have been steadily and, in some cases, explosively growing over the years they've been running. During this time, many people have asked about how they can support the sites and, largely, I've said "it's cool, I enjoy doing this". That's mostly unchanged, but as there is more and more traffic, so do costs go up. This Patreon is a sort of hedge fund for the future.

TL;DR - I spent $2,336.79 on hosting fees in 2016 and want to mitigate some of that with this Patreon, the idea being that I can continue to run and improve AnimeBracket.com and RedditBooru.com. If you want all the details, grab some coffee and read the entire break down.

So, you got your name on the contributors page and can help name new machines. Now you get a custom, hand drawn picture of your request! I'm a mildly okay artist, so it'll me a mildly okay picture.

All month-to-month hosting costs are covered. I can begin exploring CDNs in earnest!
