I wonder how much it actually costs to run this site, bet it's not much, servers are pretty cheap. Forum software could defo do with an upgrade though, or some vbulletin addons. I'd love if this site had a black theme I can switch to rather than me using a blackout addon lol.

^ I've been thinking for weeks how nice it would be to have a native dark mode I make do with dark reader for chrome though, isn't ideal, but my eyes appreciate it

10 a year for the domain.

Its not a very busy site with only 25k ever signing up, ive run similar including a chat server on a 15 a month unmanaged VPS. However they use siteground.com as a host, a decent host with many different plans.

There is a one off licene fee for vBulletin too, however there are free alternatives.

^ There are a ton of themes for vbulletin yeah. I used to run a few boards with the same software, I like all the addons you could get. You could practically make vbulletin into DIY Xenforo(the ridiculously expensive forum software) boards with the amount of addons available.

I like how you just pulled up all that info haha, very nice.

^^ Yeah agreed. I don't like the colour blue, it's a very depressing colour. I think green would be better on a mental health site, reminds me of nature, blue is said to invoke feelings of sadness and tbh I agree.

sauk is free to run, but exploitative to the hamsters and chinchillas that have to continually spin the wheel to keep it going.
