Does that include 5% on shipping.......I probably got that £10 back last year through the 5% discount John offers in SMS
BTW let me know, I can get you in touch with a friend, he owns We Be Kidneys, otherwise known as "you can't pee without me" can get you a good deal on a replacement.So I needn't have sold my kidney ? Damn, now you tell me
I've probably had the £10 back as well.
It's an absolute bargain @£10 for such a good website
Hi john.I have been approached by a company wanting to buy the forum, they have offered me a good price, I’ve still not fully committed to selling it, I’ve had the forum for 15 years, and it’s not an easy thing to let go of.
I’ve always ran this as a free forum, although I’ve paid for everything myself and never asked for anything to help with the costs, but as the forum gets busier the costs increase, recently you have noticed the forum has gone done for short periods, that is due to the hosting not coping with the extra traffic, also I was asked for the forum to use a SSL, at the moment it’s a free one, but really that needs to be a proper one, then there is software license fees, it all mounts up.
The current adverts made me a whole 57p in the last 7 days, it doesn't come anywhere near covering the costs, so I'm going to add more adverts, but that doesn't mean that you will see them, I was thinking of making the forum subscription based, a small fee of £10 per year will help a lot with the running costs.
But you will also get a few more benefits, no adverts, large image storage, unlimited time to edit posts, I know that will please a lot of people, and other things yet to be decided.
The webserver does need upgrading, the current hosting is throwing errors on a regular basis
The forum isn’t part of SMS but that doesn’t stop me offering exclusive offers, the first one will be a 5% discount code of your next order, so that will go some way, to getting your subscription fee back, in fact you could get a lot more back depending on your order.
If you would like to help then it's easy to do so, in your profile tab there is a account upgrade option.
