    I don't think anyone else wants to be the administrator. None of us are resident nazi's around here.

    I like the new look too.

    The portal page is up and running. Thanks to the people at VBadvanced.com.

    I think the traffic is down because it was off line for so long. It happens. Traffic will pick back up in a week or two. Plus, if you look at my stats, weekends always have 30-40% less traffic than weekdays. Monday should pick up a bit.

    I'm truly excited about the new look and upgrade etc. The next thing on the list is to get the links directory back up so that all of your links will be visible to people searching for your services. I looked at the stats and was surprised at how many people are actually directed to the directory with keywords like "private locator in Montana" or what have you. I just made that up but you know what I mean.

    Anyway, thanks again for all of your patience. It is greatly appreciated.

    It's the health care costs for the mods that really cut into the budget.

    Seriously, though. This one did put a dent in my wallet. I've had some people inquire about donating but I always say no. However, I am thinking about starting a membership program where you get a years membership for a small "donation". With that donation will come some perks. That being said, I have always promised that as long as I run this place the forum will be free. So, whether you get a membership or not, you will always be able to read, reply to, and enjoy all the forums.

    I've been over on other forums inquiring about all the perks that people give to their members. I've gotten some good ideas.

    when you say "Perks"...... is that code for blackmail? We "donate" and you don't e-mail DM's with our verbal tirades about how crappy the company is? I think that loosely fits into the definition of a "Perk".

    Yes

    Actually a perk is something like a bigger PM in/out box, advertisements being hidden to members but shown to non-members, a custom e-mail address, Mke@thecablevine.com for example. Stuff like that.
