For those who don’t know me
I am the only developer and owner of Tsumino. I am the one who has been listening to all of our user’s voices & putting the countless hours of work into the system behind this site.

Actual Discussion
Tsumino is a 100% COMPLETELY FREE hentai manga/doujinshi website. Anyone can walk in and look at all of the content we have without spending a dime.

But … it isn’t actually free. Server costs, bandwidth, and time spent developing / managing the system has gotten extremely expensive. Everything here is done without spamming advertisements at the users, sticking up a pay wall, selling subscriptions, etc.

So far, every dime that has went into hosting has come straight from my pocket. It’s slowly piling up and becoming painful. I don't think it's viable in the long term for me to be paying for things alone.

I am asking for users to donate funds & chip in towards the website’s server costs. If you use this website often, please consider it. Any amount would help, even if it’s as small as a dollar.

Currently, only bitcoin can be accepted due to anonymity & payment processing issues. For users who do not know how to get bitcoins, they can be purchased all over the net. Some places include (but are not limited to):
http://www.circle.com (US)
https://cex.io/buy-bitcoins (US)
http://www.coinbase.com (US)
http://www.localbitcoins.com (WORLD)
https://bittylicious.com/ (UK)
… and tons more: you can look up how to purchase bitcoins in your area if your country isn’t supported from these options

So, what does that make Tweety? Anyway, good job on the site!

It's good to see a donation system finally put into place. Hopefully you can be put into a better financial situation after this.

The money isn't for me, it gets funneled right back into paying the monthly bill for the servers. ><"

Well yeah, but that means less money out of your own pocket, right? Or did I get something wrong there?

If I had an income of my own, i'd donate at least SOME of it. sadly, I do not :( When I finally have some sort of income, I'll try and change that :)

While I wish I could donate some money, I can't on account of being in job limbo.
What I can donate is time and effort into uploading, which is why I volunteered for it in the first place. Doing so helps me feel less like a useless sack of potatoes. :lol:

Keep up the excellent work.

I'd like to recommend VirWoX for buying bitcoins, it's the one I use.
You can directly transfer money from paypal, skrill, paysafecard accounts, and even more, but they have one bad point: they take money on each transfer. A LOT. 20% for PaySafeCard, I don't remember for others.
There's a minimum on the amount of money you can transfer, too, but overall, it's a great way to exchange currencies online, world-wide.
LocalBitcoins is better but you need someone else to exchange money with: not with VirWoX
I'm sorry if this sounds like an ad, I only wanted to show that it exists

Have you already thought of "Patreon"?
With a bunch of people donating 1$ each month or something like that, I think it would help you quite good ^^
