• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient. If you can't find what you're looking for here, check the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis.
  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

I'd donate if you accepted sats over lightning. Consider running an Umbrel node on your server, makes it very easy to add a BTCPay tip jar.
There is no reason your hosting should be costing you $150/mo. If you want to discuss better hosting options feel free to contact me I have lots of experience with hosting and have migrated xenforo installations before and would be happy to help in any way I can.
I don't receive the account conformation emails. I checked my Spam folder and there are not going into Spam.

Also I love the mercenary model of support, too, a la bounty, etc, to help allocate funds where it is needed most
Unfortunately I am not in a financial position to donate anything other than time right now :( but if I had a steady income I would!

Question: What sort of support does S76 currently provide for its community? I think some logistical assistance (such as server space or bandwidth?) might be reasonable and allow the community to focus on being a community vs trying to keep itself alive by meeting its most basic needs.
