The Thieves Guild exists due to the work of a few loyal individuals that work for free. These individuals support the site generously with their time and effort, keeping things running and trying to add content when they can. In addition, we also pay for server costs and hosting fees, and don't charge anything for access to the site, and we hope to keep it that way.
We do have a few advertisements on the website, but they are not intrusive, abundant, nor overwhelming. They also bring in very little income. We try to keep the content of the website central, and make advertising less of a priority (this hurts with income, but helps with the user experience).
That being said ... if you like this site, and wish to contribute, no matter how small, feel free to generously support the site by clicking our PayPal link below.
