I want to continue developing software full-time and release a new 0.3 version as open source. I want to hire on additional developers. I want to get a hold of more designers. I want to do a lot. But alas, it costs money to make this a reality. Not too much initially, but enough to hit the wallet fairly hard (~$25 USD per hour). Hundreds and hundreds of hours have already been paid for, and as much as I try, I do not make enough in  revenue from ads to continue paying as much as I should.

I'd love to have this project be a full-time job for our one and only programmer and expand the project to include more developers, but, as I said earlier, money is an issue for this to be a thing. If you'd like to help out our cause, or you just enjoy what we offer, that being an image board software, become a patron.

All money will first be used to pay our coder Geltas. This is our #1 priority.

To give you an idea of how long development will take with all the tickets on the tracker waiting to be worked on, it would be between 6-18 months before we have an alpha ready for public testing.

You won't get anything other than the self satisfaction of helping out a project build and improve. That alone is noble of you. Thank you for lending a helping hand!

Goals
$964 of $2,000 per month
I've managed to convince our coder to take a pay cut to work full time on the project, putting us at minimum 2,000 per month. Work will begin full time for our programmer. After taxes this is just enough to keep our him fed and housed per month, but it's pushing it really close.

As a side benefit, you will see the project progress and notice tickets for feature requests closed and marked as completed at a fairly steady rate.
