So what do you guys think about this? I think it's pretty good and we
should jump on it. We can't post on Twitter as we don't have access to
that. How about instead offering them to put their logo on the site?
In case anyone is wondering, the price would be 16.4€ per month.

I apologize for the delayed response.
My supervisor and I spoke, and we're able to offer you an AX160-NVMe at
a 90% discount for a period of one year. We'll ask you to cover the
remaining 10%, and when that year approaches an end, you can re-apply
for sponsoring by writing to us again at marketing(a)hetzner.com
If it's possible, we'd appreciate you mentioning us in some way on
social media, even if it's just a quick "thank you". I saw that somone
from ArchLinux is active here:
Would that be a fair trade-off for you?
Looking forward to your answer!
