It disappeared for a long time, but for me it reappeared a few days ago.

The "donate" button on top of the page has always been there for me, though.

I used to see the "Donate" button, but haven't been able to see it for a while now (possibly it vanished when we lost our banners, but I can't say for sure).

Sounds like the forum software is falling into a sort of progressive decay.

I'll take my black suit.

Anyway, talking about hundreds of years and so: we should also realize that "a text" is the most space-friendly form of data generation. Each letter written takes approximately one byte of space. And harddrives/storages are not measured in hundreds of bytes. They are not measured in thousands of bytes, they are not even measured in millions of bytes, they are usually measured in billions and trillions of bytes and to buy a trillion of bytes you usually pay today around 50-60 USD. I know that anytime I say anything about money, some people intend to murder me, but purging this forum may just be ... a mistake, because even some worthless on-topic threads (usually all those in English-Latin are on topic) may serve as some corpus/data-base for further studies some members would like to conduct into the translations that were proposed and make some conclusions from that.

Text data is "cheap", this site is no Youtube where every minute of a video takes tens of millions of bytes. And yes, I know that I will be probably reprehended by somebody by "cheapening" all the immense costs (and I'm not sarcastic about this, I know the forum is expensive) that go into the forum, but I just wanted to express that

1) 'seconded' and 'thirded' may not be the biggest problem (even though it's quite dispensable)
2) anything that is on-topic (threads in English-Latin) should stay in favour of additional data storage which may provide enough capacity for another 10 years (or by removing the truly off-topic). And I'm not saying that to anger any moderators because 'I need to speak about money all the time', I'm saying this merely because I can't see these viewpoints represented here enough and they seem to me logical.
The entire English Wikipedia (excluding images and multimedia, as most of them are hosted in Wikimedia Commons instead) can easily fit in a 16GB USB flash drive (if compressed; if uncompressed, it can easily fit in a 64GB USB flash drive).

Exactly; somehow I doubt text is the problem here.

Yes, the "Donate" button shows up for me at the top of the page.

Does Godmy see the donate button? I wonder if it mightn't be, perhaps, that only former donators get to see it.
Yep, it seems that I've been able to donate again for many months/years now... (& I see the button)
The donate button appeared suddenly a few days ago though.

So, judging by the screenshots, does nobody else use the Latin translation of the forum?

Exactly.

You can switch languages in the left bottom corner. Sure not easy to find.
