    Seeing the title of this post on the main page of the Hive makes me cringe every time.

    neilarey Thanks for explaining that I can’t donate right now and I was very scared, especially since a lot of shit is happening to me personally right now. I don’t want this place to ever close. It helps me so much at my job and my personal life. On top of helping me out with my wrestling. So thank you for explaining that to me.

    If I were to use a YouTube channel to bring donations and memberships in would that help

    I just want to make this clear: DAREBEE is not closing. At least, not yet and, hopefully, not ever. I was told we might be heading for critical a few days ago. I knew we were hovering over the red line for months but all the same, I was hoping we won't cross over. It made my skin crawl when I saw the notice even though I knew it was likely to happen.

    When we hit critical it is obviously not good news but when you see the status, this means that we are fundraising so we can avoid going down. In the past, every time we raised the alarm DAREBEES responded and we managed to refill our emergency fund. Hopefully, this will be the case now, too. Although a lot more people are using DAREBEE these days, fewer people are able to donate. We all understand that. Many lost their jobs because of the COVID19 and many people are uncertain about the future so naturally thinking of a fitness resource's funding situation is the last thing on anyone's mind. 2020 affected all of us. So we are asking people who can to contribute so this place can continue to exist. If (knock on wood) the day comes when we can no longer support this website because not enough donations are coming in, we will make sure there is an advanced warning and a grace period, it won't just vanish one day without one. We are not quite there yet and I don't want anyone to panic but it is a deeply concerning situation.

    I hope this makes sense and helps to understand what's happening.

    Darebee Might Be Closing

    I just saw we are on critical and I wish I could help, but my wrestling school needed money and had to help there I can't help everyone. I am so going to miss this place even though I don't talk much on the hive these days. I was hoping to start Hero's Journey with a friend this October. Now I'm not sure it will be up. I'm totally stressed out. Anyway I just wanted to say to everyone how much I have loved getting to read your comments over that years and how much this site helped me out with my job and personal life. Anyway thank you for the great memories if this does shut down.
Working...
