That's the problem.....its gonna break when our host tells us they don't have a.package for us because we've exceeded their capabilities. ALL major.forums do this.....its not unusual and will cost much less from what I'm told by admins of other forums. But the big problem is exceeding what our host can offer.

Re: Need ALL members input!!!!! PLEASE READ!

So the forum is reaching its limitations with the current service provider. A self maintained server does make the most sense. If you do go to tackle this yourself let me know if you need anything. Me and my buddy have set up servers around the area for applications similar to this. Perhaps we can figure something out.

Re: Need ALL members input!!!!! PLEASE READ!

Sounds like if we are going to exceed our hosting service then JG really doesn't have much choice. There are many things to consider with a server, such as what kind of hardware will we need to support the site, plus operating system, security, and vbulletin software. And, if you will be running it out of your house you would need a better upload rate than most ISPs provide home users with. Plus offsite backup options, even if its just a disk drive with a backup image created weekly or something. Lots to think about, costs to weigh, etc.

Re: Need ALL members input!!!!! PLEASE READ!

ALOT of work.. but it will EVENTUALLY pay for itself. I would suggest having a professional on call and near by. Maybe even have him do the initial setup. I used to work as a network tech. Never setup large servers but small office network ones and once the initial setup is done you should be in the clear.

Re: Need ALL members input!!!!! PLEASE READ!

x2 on what TJcust said. Definitely having a relationship with someone on call would be a good thing. One other thing it seems people missed Scott saying was just that he isn't sure how much longer JG can hang on at the current cash burn rate - this is expensive and without more people buying memberships, it's not going to pay for itself. So while it's easy to say let someone else do it, money doesn't grow on trees - so my "vote" would be to do whatever has to be done to keep JG alive, I know I've gotten more than my money's worth on here.

I just went level two as oppose to higher so I could understand what the benefits were first. Maybe a second thread should be a discussion around what new features premium members can expect that might entice more paid memberships. For instance, not sure why free members should get access to our group discount codes? stuff like that..just food for thought

In my humble opinion. Contact the owner of the tbssowners forum. I've met him in person, at the track, he's a cool guy and I bet he could help bc his site is MASSIVE.... with no adds. Food for thought bc it never hurts to ask.

Re: Need ALL members input!!!!! PLEASE READ!

I have my own colocated server and host a few sites for people and most of the time it runs fine but it can be a lot of work at times. Just make sure it's setup well and secure. I've been hacked before and it's not fun. Gotta stay on top of all the security updates for all the software you run. There are computers out there constantly scanning ips for vulnerabilities. I now run some software that auto blocks ips after 3 failed ssh attmepts and I get a hand full of those a day. If you can afford it a dedicated managed server would be easier.

Re: Need ALL members input!!!!! PLEASE READ!

I know nothing of the work and/or exspense required to setup and maintain a server.

HOWEVER

As a "layman" I love the fact that the site is ad free. Nothing drives me crazy when it takes 5 times as long to view a thread because you have to wait on the ads to load before you can scroll through. It sounds like doing this will be alot of work but does allow you to keep the site as is. I strongly believe that this is our strength,the quick and easy access the site provides,and why we have drawn many friendly and knowledgable members.

Whatever it takes to keep the status quo, without raising membership fees or running ads, is my vote.
