I think Nasher is alluding to the fact that the software becomes more bloated each time it updates. They include a lot of features that are either unnecessary or rarely used.

Programmers justify their existence!!!

I really don't want anyone who can't afford it to have to contribute. This is not mandatory. If you can spare it then it is much appreciated. I don't want anyone inconveniencing themselves or their families.

I've just taken out the Lifetime Subscription and should have done it ages ago. I don't contribute much but read the site daily and really happy to support the massive work you do for us diehards (deehards?)

Thanks for giving us all the forum to voice, to vent and to celebrate.

Not an inconvenience at all. Demonland has provided a lot over this last decade!

Fifty dollars from me.

Maybe those people who like those little tete-a-tete, personal, in-crowd, charmed-circle posts and jokes about irrelevant personal lives, dogs, food, weddings etc. could desist in the recognition that every post fills up space that Demonland has to pay for.

Or not.

I love my cat, she is the best, bet she missed me while I was at my mates wedding last weekend, was worth it though, the food was great :)

Damn, should pay my way before commenting like this.

Ditto to all the nice things said about Demonland above.  I Couldn't survive without it!  I'm another one ashamed to admit I've only today finally taken out a Lifetime subscription!  (And, was super impressed to see all the ads disappear almost instantaneously!  Thanks!)

Well done Andy, Nasher & others who help keep the site functioning.

Cheers, and Go dees!!

Thanks for all the generous donations and to those taking out subscriptions and to those purchasing the merchandise. It is very much appreciated.

They were supposed to start the migration at 10pm so we could be down at any moment. See you on the other side.

Grouse, mouse. 

I'm soaking it up in Bali for a couple of weeks, gonna get onto the lifetime one when I get home (don't wanna spend our holiday monies ATM, my better half mightn't be amused!). 

Cheers for the advice and thank you for all the work providing this site. Although it does nothing for my tragic footy/Dees addiction !

Hope you got my 50 Strange PayPal reference on my transfer notice.

i think I joined lifetime previously so an extra payment which barely recognises the enjoyment provided by posters and the skills that moderators and operators obviously have.

i have steam driven computer knowledge and can only admire your technical capacity.

If the team functioned as reliably as you guys we would have had more previous joy.

I see the donation target is $2K and we are presently at $1785

C'mon Demonlanders even if it's only the cost of a cup of coffee donated we can make that target easily !!

I worked out that it cost about $2,847.00 per year barring any tech support with our hosting company that usually requires a $30 day pass. I also like to send Nasher a few Demonland bucks every so often as a token of appreciation for him being available on call 24/7 and for the pain and suffering he endures by spending time in the match day threads especially when we are losing.

I've increased the target to $3000 so hopefully that covers the costs of running the site for the entire year ahead.

There are a lot of ways you can help us out.

You can take out a Demonland Annual or Lifetime Subscription to remove the ads that you see on Demonland: http://demonland.com/forums/store/category/2-subscriptions/

If you are already a Subscriber and would like to assist further you can always donate to Demonland: http://demonland.com/forums/clients/donations/

If you want to help out Demonland and also look cool doing it you can purchase some Demonland branded merchandise: http://demonland.com/forums/store/category/3-merchandise/

Thank you for any help that you can give. I truly do appreciate it.

Old dee, seems like someone has already deleted most of your second sentence. 

Can someone mount an argument that donating to Demonland should be tax deductible? I'm no tax accountant or lawyer, so my best argument for it at the moment is the vibe of the thing. Surely we can find a better argument than that.

I see my contributions as a payment that improves my mental health LDC.

Without Demonland the MFC would have driven me to the asylum  over the last decade.

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition

    AINT THAT A CRYING SHAME by The Oracle

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar
