I've been using this excellent Forum for more than a year now and have subsequently spent many, many hours logged in. This is truly a great Website and Forum that Mr. Jason Pipes provides for well over 8.200 registrated members that have posted well over 128.000 posts and replies. It makes me very concerned when Jason writes that...
http://www.feldgrau.net/phpBB2/viewtopi ... 7&start=30I need at least $200 a month currently. That cost allows us unlimited server space, up to 256k of bandwidth usage per second measured as an average per month, a full featured unlimited php database, unix shell access, direct server support, custom reboots when problems occur, and all hosted on a dedicated server. I've been over the discussion here before regarding cost as some people simply don't understand how it could cost so much to host a site, but sadly that isn't open for discussion. I've been hosted on our current server for over 4 years and have become firmly entrenched on it, moving would be a nightmare in addition to the fact that what we are paying for is NOT expensive considering what we are getting. Trust me, I've done my homework.
That being said if we can get 20 people to donate $10 a month, or 40 people to donate $5 a month, or 100 people to donate $2 a month we would be in great shape. Right now we have about 5-6 people donating $10.
$200 a month for maintaining Feldgrau as a top-notch WWII Website... Why is that even a problem? Personally, I'm more that willing to start donating $5 - $10 per month. For me, it's worth it! I will contact Jason to see how this is done most expediently...
COME ON, FELDGRAUIANS
With best regards,
