Pegasus Research Consortium Fund Raiser

Pegasus, for the first time, really needs your help. Pegasus has been funded mostly out of my own pocket all these years with only the occasional ads and donations as compensation to help us along. We have never before asked anything from our followers and visitors. However, recently our server sold to a new owner and they have raised the rates to almost double and while we do have unlimited storage for the website itself (currently several thousand pages) and unlimited bandwidth, we can no longer store the massive amounts of large-sized files, videos and pictures on the server for free. The website was originally hosted on a dedicated server but we are now forced to use a shared server with the new owners.

PEGASUS WEBSITE


PEGASUS FORUM


My current financial situation has me retired at a fixed income and with the increased server costs along with the need to upgrade my work computer and internet service, it has become difficult to maintain the site without seeking some outside funding. While now being retired does afford me the time to put more effort into the website, forum and content, that time also needs to be spent keeping my bills paid.

Over the years we have grown to a site that is trusted and viewed by many... in fact we are averaging 35,000 unique monthly hits every month (A unique hit means 35,000 new, first-time viewers, not returning visits). If all our visitors would, just ONCE, send us the value of a cup of Starbucks coffee ($5.00ish) or even just a single dollar $1.00... That would have all our needs met in no time and would secure the website hosting for the long-term, upgrade computer hardware and software, and even hire some part time help to provide content and website management. Our administrators and moderators are currently all working on a purely volunteer basis... we would love to be able to help them out in return with a small paycheck but right now, we just don't have anywhere near the funding for that.

So if our site and what we do has any value to you at all, please consider sending us that one cup of coffee, or that single dollar. It's only a small amount but with the number of visitors we have it can quickly add up and make a huge difference.

There are also other ways you can support us besides outright donating...

1) We have an Amazon affiliate account. If you buy ANYTHING on Amazon simply using the link provided on our site, it costs you nothing but we get a small percentage from Amazon as a "finders fee" (We are currently looking at other affiliate programs out there).

2) Buy a Pegasus logo coffee mug or T-shirt (coming soon); a John Lear tinfoil hat ; a Copernicus Crater Poster 18" x 24" This is a copy of the Lunar Orbiter infamous "Copernicus Crater Moon Mining Operation "; or "My times with Bob Lazar " DVD (Available at our Ebay shop).

3) Subscription. We are considering a subscription and currently working on a newsletter for this purpose (some of you may have already received a test letter). This will allow complete access to over 6,000 official documents, PDF files and videos for download. Since the new server won't allow us to keep them in the server directory, this will be a way to share the files and without an issue of robots creating DNS problems which has happened numerous times. We are looking at a $3.00 per month subscription rate (with a discount of $25.00 annually). More details will be available soon on the website.

As things are, I will have difficulty keeping the website running and I would hate to see it come down, but my personal bills must comes first. So again, if you truly value what Pegasus provides, please help us out with a one time donation of $5.00 and please share this fundraiser with everyone you know.

Thank you,
Pegasus Research Consortium Manager,

I want to tank everyone who has chipped in to help so far. It is very much appreciated. Last year our traffic as I mentioned in the campaign description was averaging at around 35,000 unique hits per month.

Well I just got the statistics for January and we hit 86,569 unique visitors and with 4,131,615 hits for that month alone using 637 gigabytes of bandwidth. So we are getting a huge increase in traffic...

Please share our campaign with all you friends.

This is for the respect with which you have shown all of us over the years. The respect to hear alternative views without predujice, even if they were crackpot ones. Here is to the continuance of Pegasus.
