Just sent a donation - said 3-5 days.

Sure did miss this site while it was down. The "official" board is not near the same as this one.

Thanks for all you do for us fans.

Default Re: Site Donation FYI

What we need to do is keep the donations going in a regular manner so Kevin has better grasp on what he has monthly. If many folks that use this site would just do a small donation all costs could easily be met. I try to send mine in the first of the month just like the rent payment. I doubt many of us get more for our money somewhere else sports or otherwise. Let's not hope a crash or a OMG reminder jogs us to send the cash in.

Default Re: Site Donation FYI

I send my donation every day in the form of amazing posts filled with useful information and witty banter. That right there is worth at least $50-$75 a day.

Only kidding

I'm making a donation as we speak. I'll try and be more regular about it too. Looking at my post count, I owe you a lot more than I can ever provide

I'm just not used to the Texans beating good teams early in the season.
The Cowboys are gonna throw EVERYTHING THEY'VE GOT at the Texans.

Wow. Great for you guys! Our board seems to be filled with people who either have nothing to give or don't want to give. Either way, we are struggling. We have over 30,000 registered members and yet we get very little donations from folks who spend most every waking hour on the site. We shall see what the future holds. Sigh.

See ya'll next week!

Yeah, our fans have been very generous and supportive. I see your site is down, do you have outages when the traffic gets high? We started having that issue last week so we had to upgrade the server. These boards are memory hogs and can be very taxing on a server.

It is verrrry slow during games, draft time, etc. Otherwise we rarely have a problem. 1200-1500 members on at a time taxes everything though. And all they do is complain about it. Everyone wants something great for free. I do too, but there comes a time that you have to weigh all your options. We are there now.

Are you on shared hosting? The only way to run a smooth board is run your own box. However without donations it is a big ticket to shell out each month. Do you do advertising or anything else to help with costs?
