Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for February 2020

So far, approximately $0.00 has been raised out of our target of $250.00. We're about 0% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 29 February!

How to donate?

At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.

Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Litecoin (LTC)
Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

Demonetization Strikes The Channel! 2019-07-07T19:30:06+00:00

The 3 Hour Knife video was demonetized and a manual appeal failed to reinstate it. There is nothing notably different about that video than every other video in my catalogue which leaves me feeling "exposed". What should I do?

If I recall, that was the JoJo video. It may have gotten demonetized dur to the inclusion of JoJo stuff in the video and creating a "contest" based around it. JoJo is a copyright product and they could have inferred copyright infringement from that

GreenBeetle - 7 Jul 19 21:29
I thought that for a second too but then had to ask the question: What's wrong with children watching a knife forging video? It's a legitimate art form or it isn't and knives are legitimate tools or they aren't. So I think it comes down, again, to how custom, handmade knives are being perceived by people who know little about knives or actual crime statistics.

User #6044365 - 7 Jul 19 22:08
I think it could be more copy right infringement. YouTube seems to demonize videos really quickly for this.

I want to hear from you guys. Email me a short audio file at greenbeetlegear@yahoo.com telling me about your favorite knife steel either to make knives with or use and why! "Hi, my name is [Carl] and I've been [making/using] knives since [1980]. My favorite steel is [1095] because [it's great when my boss tells me I need to kill every gopher on the course. They're a disgrace to the golfing industry, the lowest member of the food chain and'll probably be replaced by the rat.]

Got something else cool to say? Fine, send that too!

Record it on your phone, your computer or whatever. If the audio file is audible, under 35 seconds and arrives by May13th I'll use it in an upcoming podcast!
