C'mon. The Mafia 'Stache.

I got nothing but "cute" off that? Ugh. Tough crowd.

I can use Forumotion to purchase a domain and they will continue hosting it on the new name. That's fine, but they seem to be a little on the expensive side

How much are we talking? I'm a bit short on cash at the moment (and for a little while yet) but, if people are willing to wait for the domain change (full disclosure, a couple of months), I'll throw in some monies.

Well, it's less the cost issue than the technical side of things. I've got no issue ponying up what they're asking, but it is admittedly more expensive than other options. The real thing is that I have no idea what I'm getting for my money. I don't see ads on this site, but apparently the rest of you do. That's gotta go. I have no idea how many users or posts we cap out at (I've read the board gets "full" after 30,000 posts). I guess I just need to call Forumotion and talk to someone, but I just don't want to put money into the site and discover that we've been sold a piece of crap that won't last more than a few months.

I have no problem donating to the cost of it. As far as ads go, I do see one small one at the top when I'm on from my phone. But I use ABP at home and never even realized there was an ad for a while. However, the post cap worries me. 30k? Won't take us long to reach that. We're almost at 7k already and that's simply after 1 game. I don't think we can have a board that will get "full". Too many chatty bastards here.

Really, I only even mentioned cost because so many of you have kindly offered to pay something and I was just trying to decide what the most fiscally responsible situation would be.

Buying here also means renewing annually...but that may be the case with just about any hosting.

I know nothing about any of that hosting stuff. I just know I like this board better than those ugly proboards, and am glad to contribute to either stay here or have something similar. I just worry about any sort of limit.

If you know that we'll have an unlimited post count on the new forum (and it's phpBB) then I see no issues with moving to a host that you trust. Better not to wait, as far as I'm concerned.

Better option:

Get the site, get your own Google Ads account and use that to finance the site. Plug a donation button up in the top/bottom corner.

I make about $20 a month off of my Google Ads on the three websites I have them on and I'm pretty sure that's completely random. With that set up. we all basically just have to click the ad once a day and you will be rolling in it.

Again, that model is based on a good number coming here and of those, most pressing the banner or tower ad once a day.


Edit: (It's a little under $20/month. I had one really good month, but I was pushing those links everywhere.)

I'm anti-work, and it sounds like you and Shyka (and maybe others, I dont know) put in some work to get this up and running. As long as its reasonable, paying to not redo work is always the better option (more time to drink).

That wasn't ripping off, that was validating. I took the time to make a banner for it. I've checked to see if it's available. It is.

Unless there are some swift and immediate other/better suggestions, it may be what we call ourselves.

Also. While I'm thinking of it...feel free to ask kelly to verify, but the whole LO=Neptune thing? Totally random. Perfect...but random. Everybody was assigned to a character in the order they signed up. SI! was first, so she was MT1. weeba was second, and so on and so forth.

Serendipity.

If we abandon this ship, what we need:

1. Domain Name. (Easy enough once we have something agreed upon.)

2. Reliable Hosting for domain name. (More difficult since I don't know jack about this and every host out there seems to have someone bashing it for something. I would just need a couple experts to size them up. I know weeba has personal space, but I feel a moderate amount of trepidation using someone's personal space, for various reasons.)

3. An understanding of how to build the forum. (I'm pretty sure we'd have to rebuild from the ground up. Shyka did a great job over here, but I really like the particular code version we're using here. I'm not sure I'd want a fancy upgrade or anything.)

4. Time. (It seems like anything we do in terms of moving may require dumping all of this info and building new code from scratch. I'm not sure how sexy that would be, but I'm sure a few of you are chomping at the chance to code this place.)

As should be expected, my primary draw to this board is that I'm the boss. I don't want to be a tyrant, but I sure like having the theoretical power to be one. So...my other fear in letting go of this place is simply my own fear of losing the reins. But we all know how egomaniacal I can be. This shouldn't be a surprise.

*feels ignored, makes one last ditch effort...*

Seriously, this could be entirely self sufficient and allow you to recoup start-up costs, all with the help of google adsense.

Donation button? Where do you invisage the donation button to go?

This is an intriguing idea. I will need to play around with the customisation settings to see if it's even possible. I know you can add javascript bits and pieces, so I'd imagine it's relatively easy to add a little ads panel hooked into Google Ads (and then just switch off the standard ones). The donation button thing, I'm not sure about. Maybe it could be done through a widget. Hmmm.....

As far as I'm aware, and I'm certain you could ask, but if you buy the package here, it should come ad-free. Then you just take adscript from Google Ad-sense, once you get an account approved. and on the back-end of the site, you should have sections like banner, side bar, etc. that you can cut and paste the banner, tower or box ads into and it creates the ad images you see in those sections.

Here is a sidebar ad on my Real Estate Site as an example:

http://www.TonyWhite.ca

and another over at my wife's site:
