For the most part, we bring in enough money to run urnotalone on a daily basis, but not every month. In the past, we have tried fundraising to help pay for updating the site with mixed success. I personally dislike being bombarded with fundraising requests. So for now, this will be our only fundraising effort.
Recently, I stopped work on the site update for several reasons with a main reason money. Once we have built up a reserve, we will restart work again.
URNA means a lot to many of you. If you can find a way to help,

Hi there, from your “Team URNA” Staff!
Please, take 5 minutes of your time, read all of the following:
As most know, URNotAlone was purchased from the original owners earlier this year. There were several reasons that Jon wanted to sell the site after 20 years. One reason is that the underlying code is becoming outdated, and the revenues from the site were not supporting the cost to keep it running.
Once the sale took place it became obvious that the site and chat client needed to be updated. As many of you will recall Dan, tried to do this about a year ago, ... [more]
URNotAlone has strict but reasonable photo requirements compared to other sites on the Internet. For a Silver Level Profile you must meet these requirements. Bronze Level Profiles have a much more limited set of features that they can use on URNA. We don't expect that everyone will feel comfortable posting a photo that meets our requirements, but it is the only way to get a "Fully Approved, Silver Level Profile" here. You will be listed as a Bronze Level Member if you don't meet them, but a Fully Approved Silver Level profile unlocks additional features on the site.
Due to changes that the Justice Department is making to USC Title 18, Section 2257, we are changing a number of our processes here at URNotAlone.
First and foremost is that we will now need to implement an approval process for Secondary Photos. We will no longer allow you to post Adult photos. We also need to ensure that the photos do not violate copyright laws before we can allow them to be visible.
In the next 48 hours, we will be deleting ALL secondary thumbnails and photos. Our new system is already in place, so any secondary photos that you submit will wait f... [more]
Remote Friends Lists (Dec 17, 2004)

That's a lot of ... [more]
