Talking Huge Site Announcement!

I just wanted to post a little update to make sure everyone knows what Ive have been working on to try to keep our community running and funded. In the past I have mentioned several times how the cost to run JeepGarage has increased beyond my wildest dreams. Many members have stepped up and contributed and that has been HUGE! But unfortunately the success of the site has been a mixed blessing and I had to find a way to ensure the community would remain sustainable for years to come....even with the crazy hosting costs etc.

I have been chatting with another forum owner about how to ensure our community will stay online for years to come. He offered lots of advice, much of which was over my head (stuff about RAM caching and Sphinx) so we chatted about joining forces. I am please to let you all know that Andy R is going to be partnering with me at JeepGarage. This will bring us many benefits such as new features like free iPhone and Android apps and most importantly ensure that our community will remain online for years to come. It will also free me up for more direct interaction with the forums, Jeep, Chrysler and the SRT group.

With Andy's help.......we will figure out how to allow upgraded members to turn off the ads. We will also find ways to bring value to our premium members as we continue to evolve JeepGarage in the future. Andy has the experience and expertise that will help take JeepGarage to the next level and into the next 10 years! We appreciate your support and want to find ways to say thank you.

So please welcome Andy to our team and community!!!!

Re: HUGE Site Announcement!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey there, thanks for the warm welcome guys!

I have been lurking here for quite some time. This is a great community and I am very excited to be able to offer assistance. I started working with forums about a decade back and was fascinated by how a website can actually be a living thing. Forum communities are very special and it can be an overwhelming burden for a forum owner to ensure that backups are being made (and tested), that the server is online, software is up-to-date and improvements are made. In recent months Scott has been shouldering this burden and I glad he's going to allow me to invest in the community and help offload some of that responsibility from him.

I have a few amazing pals on my team which will be resources for us here on JG. Janet is my left hand gal, she was an Admin on the first forum I founded and helps me with everything from forum configuration tweaks, help desk stuff, and other small issues that need to be tended to. She's going to be helping Scott get some of his free time back by taking over many of those little tasks. Secondly is Jeff, a programmer who specializes in vBulletin development. He will be making sure JG is secure, that we have backups and that they have been tested, adding new features and making sure the site is running smoothly.

I am looking forward to meeting everyone and working with Jeep Garage in the years to come.

Andy
