First, let me say I appreciate all the donations. I will use them to pay the hosting and some of the other expenses. I went with a forum backbone that actually cost a bit of money to use. It isn't very pricey but each module I add like the Calendar, Blog, Galley, Marketplace, and other tiny features had a small cost associated with them.
I dont expect a penny for this. I did it because, I hated that my friends were having issues with the other site and wanting something different. They wanted a place to talk freely, share pictures, events, how-to articles, and ideas.
I almost did this back around Christmas time. It seemed some members that had their hand spanked, were happy to let it all blow over. I couldn't just sit back and wait on this latest issue to "fix itself". I gave it some time to be resolved. I asked over and over for a response and a resolution..... What more could I have done!
I know some of you from face to face meetings and some from the forums. I just want to say thanks to everyone who has found this site. I hope you can stick around for a long time....
Again, Thanks to everyone.... And Welcome.....
