With the help of your donation, Iwaku gets to stay on a privately owned server that is not victim to a company's strict Terms of Service or suspensions. It may also help buy top-notch software or hardware to keep everything running smoothly and provide members with super cool features that aren't included in the default forum software. We make no money off the site because we do not host third-party ads. The site owner has to pay out of pocket and still afford groceries and other living expenses!
Members who purchase Account Upgrades get a cool Name Color to show they are a Donator, along with extra thread tools in their roleplays to edit, manage, close, delete, and bump their topics.
