It looks like Olognion is shutting down due to the intersection of !money and !ads. I kind of feel like we could keep this site alive with a combination of a static site generation and/or some crowdfunding.

    Is how they generate the site really the cost here?

    I don't know much about it, but I guess your suggestions could work. Might want to include donations too, some people preferring a one time payment over a subscription.

    @SortOfTested Oh i see, traded convenience for some potential scale issues and got hit by a big bill maybe?

    Granted, I absolutely do that on my crap that isn't likely to be used by anyone. Never been a problem.

    Be interesting if this can hang on with the "I don't like ads" model. That's kinda the model... don't have to like it, but that's pretty much it on the web.

    Seems like he's just calling it a day without a valid alternative.

    Maybe the main issue is writing the content? Server costs can be very minimal on a site that may not have millions of hits a day.

    But whatever the solution count me in, I'll Patreon, or help setup an alternative model, github with jekyll free forever
