DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115\$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

# How are Earnings Determined?

## Word Counts

Every words of original content counts as one word, and every word of content based on something else, or collated content, counts as 0.3 words. Therefore, ten words of original content would be worth 10 words, and ten words of content based on something else would be worth 3 words. To calculate your total word count, your collated word count is multiplied by 0.3 and added to your original word count. For example, if you wrote 10,000 words of original content and 10,000 words of collated content, your word count total would be (10000 * 0.3) + 10000 = 13000 words.

## Word Count Limit

Your word count is limited to 50000 words per round. If you have more than that, the rest of your words will roll over into the next round.

## Payout Time

Shares are paid out 2700 blocks after a round ends. You can view round endings and share payout schedules here: http://dvccountdown.blisteringdevelopers.com/
