    Default *@#(*[email protected])$*( PAYPAL! Thank you Paypal!




    Oh, Crap! Paypal (*[email protected])#( gave me a present in a form of a problem!!! Our account!


    Hey guys,


    I know you guys don't see me posting/chatting here lately unless we have issues with the site/server. Unfortunately, few hours ago I received an email in our Paypal account that we have been "Permanently Limited" for violating "AUP (Acceptable Use Policy)". They will lock our funds for 180 days!! and will contact us how we will get it. I'm trying to contact them because we still have no idea what we violate exactly. Since, we only use our Paypal account for Sending Payments, servers and receiving donations.
    Spoiler :  

    So at the moment our Paypal account (j****ken(at)y.c) cant do any transactions. Unfortunately, We have 2 server due next week. We need at least $180. We have set up a new Paypal account for us to use, so we can receive donations which we really need.


    I really want to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who keep on supporting us. even thou we are very outdated (Dudette has to work faster). We will keep Otaku-Streamers Ad-FREE.


    Thank you


    - jbluey

    Update:

    - Still no reply from Paypal about our account. also sent an appeal to them. hopefully we get it back.
    - Donate button is redirecting to our new paypal account.

    Thanks for Supporting OS!

    All hail OS!

    I would like to reiterate, before someone will start rumors like Jim stole the funds, that NONE of the funds are going to any of the staff’s pocket. Also, be as blunt as it maybe, there have been several occasions that Jim had to pull out funds from his personal money to pay for our servers’ fees.

    And again to point out, this is his site (obviously as he is spending loads of money to keep it running whenever we don’t meet the donation goals) but WE ARE THE ONES USING THIS SITE TO WATCH ANIME AND TO MINGLE WITH OUT OS FRIENDS.

    I DON’T WANT ANYONE POINTING OUT OR STARTING TO SPREAD RUMORS. I WILL BAN ANYONE WHO WILL TRY.

    Quite a pickle we're in,it seems :/
    Make sure that the second account isn't traceable to the first one,would suck to get donations but get hit with the hammer ('cause they will if they can), or transfer if you have a decent chunk on it before they hit you,idk?

    I'm guessing we'll get an update when the problem gets resolved? *shakes fist angrily at Paypal*

    I'd donate again but I've got an expensive 2 months coming up

    Hang in thereee

    There is a reason, but its best not to discuss publicly. I've already shared intel with Dudette. Good luck on this situation - and as always, you have my support.

    Thanks guys,

    Atm. in order to buy us some time. we have updated the site to use a new paypal account to receive donations. by doing the same process.

    Unfortunately, i dont think there will be an untraceable way unless we go cryptocurrency transactions.

    We are still discussing how we will solve this situation.

    Thanks again guys.

    Unfortunately, you may be correct about the situation. You'll likely need to integrate crypto donation options or have a third-party revenue solution - such as revenue from ads and/or CPAs/affiliate partnerships. I know its strongly against your policy, but its much harder for a saboteur to target revenue from ads and affiliate agreements because a lot of diversification is involved. The terms/AUP of their contracts are far less strict than payment processors too.

    You're being tested. Show us what you're made of, birthday boy. ;p

    Would it be apossible that OS uses other services like Patreon?
    This would allow users to establish a monthly support for OS with an amount of more or less dollars.

    It is possible, but traceable. Patreon accounts adhere to a strict AUP - and that may cause a problem for OS down the line similar to what is happening now with PayPal.

    I just found that the donate link is set to the new account. So I sent a little more to help the cause. I hope we get past the troubles and back to the anime we love as soon as possible. :)

    Typical of PayPal. I heard they won't actually respond if you don't directly call them for appeal. I have watched some videos claiming that PayPal will email you the same thing if you contact them via email.

    My job isn't giving me enough hours right now, but seeing as I'm financially okay for this month thanks to my internship, I can spare a few dollars for my favorite site. It's not much, but I hope it helps. Good luck. I hope it all works out.
