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
$400 of $800 per month
By reaching this point, we will be able to get our coder to work part time on the project, between 30-80 hours a month as free time permits. Some days we may get ten hours of work, and others, two. But progress will be made.
