☆ Help Wanted! ☆

Hi everyone!

This is Nakita speaking and I’m here to ask you for a pledge like NPR, Wikipedia and everyone else this holiday season.

Just kidding- that stuff is awfully annoying isn’t it?

 

What I do need is your feedback as to what direction you would like the site to take?

2018 has been a great year for raising awareness and talking to people about content. I’ve had so much lovely support and I appreciate all the kind words people have had for my efforts. I humbly thank you! ❤

♥ ♡ ♥ ♡ ♥ ♡ ♥ ♡ ♥

My main mission in making this site is to provide as much information about Volks events and products as I possibly can. While I feel like I’ve got a good start on it, I’d be lying if I said that this is a bit overwhelming at times. I have had lovely support from so many of you. A few people have even written articles for me (you know your awesome selves <3) and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the assistance.

What I need now are more people who watch the Volks news and announcements to help me write up base stories and submit images/links. I can take care of the editing, tone and layout but I need help keeping up with all of the stories- and it can be anything Volks related- whatever captures your imagination and inspires you.

If you can translate and want to help then that would be fantastic. I’ve had people who want compensation in the past for these services and while I’d love to do that…. I’ve got to be honest with you: this site makes no money. It actually costs me money to run and maintain and supply the giveaway items as well. It’s not a complaint, I love doing it but I can’t offer to pay people for contributing right now.

That brings us to another important topic:

When I need funds to keep the site going, how should I go about it? 

I can put adverts in? I tried with the amazon linking but it really didn’t amount to much in the long run. I can try a more aggressive advertisement placement with WordPress but… that really sucks.

* I could place the bulk of the website content behind a paywall via Patreon … I really don’t want to do that because I want to keep this as a free resource for everyone to use and love.

* The third option is to ask for donations (which I said I wasn’t doing earlier but SURPRISE!) which is an option to try before going with adverts or placing content behind a paywall.

So website renewal time will be upon me in the new year and I am trying to decide which way I should take the content. Please feel free to sound off in the comments, take the survey or just donate directly to the site so I can keep going through 2019. Ultimately I make no money and do this for the joy of sharing information and helping people get their dolls. If you believe in that too then please consider helping TenshinoMon.com out.

We currently need USD $150.00 to continue hosting for another year. If you can give any amount to help pay for the site hosting, it’d be hugely appreciated. I believe in transparency and will update the total received if donations are made. Thank you in advance for anything you can provide – whether it’s feedback, contributions, or money both are equally valuable. This way we can keep bringing you Volks news, translations and updates in 2019. If, somehow, we go above the requested amount then I will use those funds towards future site fees and/or giveaway items.

If we don’t make the amount then it’ll be rough but I’ll have to back everything up and close our doors. I’m hoping that won’t be the case but it’s the truth. We have until the end of January 2019 to figure this out. Thank you! ❤

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO DONATE

It has been brought to my attention that the donation link only allows $6 payments! It has been FIXED! Donate however much or as little as you would like!

We have received $32.00/USD $150.00

Thank you for your time and I am wishing each and everyone one of you a Happy Holiday and a beautiful New Year!

All my best always,

Nakita

  1. 1. I can’t find the donate link and I feel like an idiot
    2. I’d love to see more posts on Volks history! Such as how the first Unoas were Volks sculpts, maybe features on discontinued sculpts, or a posts showing the evolution of the default face up styles?

    1. You are super not wrong. T-T I’ve fixed it multiple times to show a button but the button does not appear when I publish. *facepalm*

      Soooo I’ve added a link instead! Thank you so much for letting me know and here’s the link:

      I think your story ideas are absolutely brilliant. I’m going to start digging and see what I can find!

      Thanks again- your support means so much. ❤
