Thanks, everyone! Since I made my announcement, two people were kind enough to donate–the gesture was very appreciated. Various others reached out with kind words or advice. Yesterday, someone showed me a thread that had been made on reddit in hopes to save the site.
I appreciate it all. Subsequently, I worked on switching Yordl over from Mandrill to Mailgun yesterday. The deadline was April 27th, tomorrow, which is when the website would have stopped working and when I was planning on shutting it down. I put the change in right on time and the site can now continue to function. I’m still losing money on it, but that’s OK for now. If people are still actively using the site, then I don’t mind keeping it up. If anything, maybe tell your friends about it. That would be cool.
Also, a lot of people had a lot of suggestions and ideas they wanted to share. While I haven’t worked on adding features or changing Yordl in a long time, feel free to leave your suggestions (if any) as a comment in this thread. It’s something I’ll definitely consider if there’s enough interest.
So, I guess for now Yordl will stay up. Thanks again. 🙂
