THANKS FOR THE UPDATE.........NEW SERVER

Sorry to hear about the migration issues Justin. Hang in there!

Not sure if everyone using the site has an idea about the typical or AVG cost for tech / architectural support these days.....but having done some consulting work in the past (unfortunately not with this type of issue) ..........fees can range any where from $2500/day to $10,000 over a few days (per tech/engineer) NOT CHEAP!

Justin - is there any way for those interested in contributing or donating to the cause to be able to do so?

With 500+ gold members possibly contributing a little bit, maybe it will help to defray some of the costs until a solid sponsor or two arrives.

Or what about the possibility of allowing Sploofus members to purchase / upgrade their membership 1 year or two years in advance, today, making those funds available to you now? Just thinking out loud.........trying to brainstorm ideas to help the site and mastermind we have grown to appreciate and love!

What say you goldies?

I am wondering what is the chance of Sploofus being declared a public company, and the members become the shareholders? Now I must confess to not knowing much about the machinations of doing this Stateside.....but if members can buy shares, the perhaps we could keep our Sploofus-family afloat.
Anybody with more knowledge of the concept I am trying to convey??

I agree with action, I'll gladly pay an increase in gold membership/extension to help cover the costs of the server. Seems Justin is doing everything in his power to make the site better, and if we all chip in it would show our appreciation for his efforts. All the members I have spoken with agree, so how bout it folks? Danny

I couldn't agree more. I have NO PROBLEM with anything...I was thinking like $50 per year...that's $4 per month or like the cost of one cup of coffee at Starbucks....
