Should have thought of this when they made a free website. Just stick ads on it, it's better than looking like a twat asking for money every time the season changes.
Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!
For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 192 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!
Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

He could make billions like Zuckerburg but instead he's not providing further ways for advertisers to spy on people and their browsing habits.
He has made billions. He also founded the FOR profit Wikia.

Don't give Encyclopedia Dramatica money either; they don't actually need it for the site nor are they using it for the site; they're just using ED as a big money cow for personal shit; they're running ED from their PC's, they don't have to pay for bandwidth.

Ads are not evil. But do you see gigantic ads advertising unrelated stuff in a library?
Thankfully they invented a little thing called an Ad Blocker. So I say, BRING ON THE AD'S!

What I like about is that the first time I saw it, it was "If everyone donated five dollars we could end the fundraiser today" and now it's gone up to 10 dollars, somehow I'm incredibly doubtful that the money they've needed to accumulate has more than doubled, and considering it didn't end on the first day when it was 5 dollars per person, I'm guessing even less people will be willing to donate after they start asking for more.
Seriously, who even reads these things anymore?
