Site Help & Support - Subscriptions & Premium Membership with HPC:Factor

When we started the site, it was always under the mantra that we would never force banner adverts or pop-up messages onto our users in the name of generating revenue. We want to ensure that continues.

From it's inception and to the present day, the site has remained entirely self funded and self administered, including the hardware, software, bandwidth and development time that goes into making HPC:Factor the site that it is. With the exception of support that we receive from you, the community, the operations of the site are funded entirely by C:Amie, Insurgent and SeanF.

As the demand for downloads increases, power and internet charges rise and hardware needs to be replaced, our costs inevitably go up. So we need your help to continue to exist.
