I Know how the smg software is free read that long ago, but how are you hosting all this for free

I optimize this service so it runs fast. It is on a dedicated server with a 100mb port.
It is paid for with ad's.  For first couple months I am going to probably take a loss but afterwords, it should pay for hosting.
Don't worry it won't ever really get slow, I can also upgrade as more people start using this service.

Ok that sounds great.

I do have a very big concern about reliability though not of rge servers though.
I think it wonderful your idea and if ads can pay thats great.

My concern is I wanted to use this as a subforum and we have allot of members.
How do we newbies here and having no server control know we
wont be left in th cold if for some reason say a dedicated server becomes
unafordable.?

I think its great what your doing, just what kind of assurance is there?
I only ask because this is so very new. And we have hundreds of members that
would crush my little head LOL

But very impressive as well.

That's one of the reasons I think you should accept outright donations via PayPal or whatever.  A lot of us want to help you in your effort.
