Announcements / SMF For Free - Thank you For your Support
« on: January 24, 2016, 07:00:45 pm »
Thank you for your support during this time.  Never had this occur in the 10 years plus I have been doing forum hosting. I am upset for this down time to occur and loss of data for some forums.  I have been working hard coming up with good long term solution to prevent this from happening again.

We will be moving and getting our own server hardware to host the forums. Here is a list of items that I have ordered so far

How you can help. Any upgrades or subscriptions that you order for will help pay for this change.

Or have an option to fund via paypal

We hope to continuing growing and allowing others to make new forums. As this was my first big project I want to see it go forward stronger than ever.
