I don't know enough about the different forums to say much but I agree the time is coming soon that we will be forced to expand our forums! For the time being though there is about 6 or 8 users that have never even signed in on the forum. We really should delete those and any who haven't signed in at least once this year. That will give us a little more time at least.

Yes we should expand but as u can see a large number of our members cant donate money yet.

This certainly proves to a big problem.

I think we have got some more space left but we have to act on this.

Most of the posts u see are posted by 10 odd guys.
Every 24 hours just about 10 guys vist this site and during weekeneds thisobviouosly increases.

If we want to expand then first we need to see who can doante and who cant.

And only then accordingly can we have an idea on how to go about doing this.

Right!

I have managed to sort out all the price ranges that we could buy.

The setup cost varies.
This is what you get with the setup and how much it costs:

Plan 1
Web or Disk Space - 200mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 5gb
Price Per Year - $60.00 USD
----------------
Plan 2
Web or Disk Space - 500mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 10gb
Price Per Year - $120.00 USD
----------------
Plan 3
Web or Disk Space - 1000mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 15gb
Price Per Year - $180.00 USD
-----------------
Plan 4
Web or Disk Space - 1500mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 20gb
Price Per Year - $240.00 USD
-----------------
Plan 5
Web or Disk Space - 2000mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 25gb
Price Per Year - $300.00 USD
-----------------
Plan 6
Web or Disk Space - 2500mb
Data Transfer or Bandwidth - 30gb
Price Per Year - $360.00 USD

NOTE: All the themes cost $60.00 USD.


The first payment WILL cost more than the next few years payments. You only need to pay for the theme ONCE! For example. If you but the Plan 1. It costs $60.00. The theme costs $60.00, which makes $120.00 for the first payment. All the rest of the payments will cost $60.00 as you will only need to buy the setup fee, and not the theme.

Well I for one could easily give around $20 USD of it or maybe more if needed. But I have no idea how big we need it to be? I mean how much space are we currently using? How much space does the Void forum have? I don't know that we will need that big but just for comparison!

Void spends over 3,000 (dollars or pounds , not sure) a year , we definately wont be spending that...

i know that this seems very forward but it is matter that the AoF have to look into before it coems to a to late time...

for a start we still need a pay pal acount to get donations sent to and AoF members that can help us out with that contact HH...

@Spec Ops - HH knows what hes tlakign about, he will soon tell u what 1 has to little space for the community

(also remember that u can update ur forum to a higher level and do FAR FAR FAR much more than what we cna do on this site... so its worth the money...)

You don't really need a large storage space on forums unless you are planning to add lots and lots of downloads in the downloads section.

The storage counts for the posts, users and uploaded stuff, e.g: images, downloades, files.

I would say that the Plan 1 or 2 would be enough for us as we won't be using that much. And remember, 500mb and 1GB is quite a lot of memory, if you are only using it for images, posts and user accounts.

Tell me when you think, and i'll do a poll.

Alright, I'm starting to get a clearer picture to go on here regarding forum space. What kind of space do we need is the big question. I would have to say the minimum sounds good, but it would probably only last a couple of years.
How do I know this? Because I spam, and it's my job to know how much special, digital canned meat can fit into a forum.
We might like to go for the second option, in my opinion. By that time, we'll probably have lost our main contingent of AoF members currently here. But, life carries on - I know most of us will stay as best they can.


I think I could donate a bit, I just need to run some stats through a currency calculator and my bank balance... study:

Well that is the tricky part! We all know some people won't be here forever, you just have to hope that someone else steps up and takes their place! But at least if we pay it a year at a time there is no worries of it getting cut off! We will always know when our due date is! And if we didn't have the money for the next year when it is getting close then could always go back to a free forum. Here is another question for you though! Is there anyway we can transfer the info from this forum to the new one? A lot of the posts I wouldn't worry about but the Sticky's and the AoF Database, those both have lots of work put into them by our members! We really don't want to lose that.

Oh! And as far as the PayPal account I don't have one ,as I am anti-Paypal, but worst case I can make one if need be!

Ah, that's true. Well, it's all up to the awesome power of copy-and-paste now... it may take a while to get everything over, but we'll manage it. In the end, everything will be done. For once, I won't spam. I'll just... copy-and-paste... same job, expect this time it isn't original lol

Yes, if we lose those a lot of time and effort (with the mods coming out several times and being re-arranged, yadah, yadah) will be lost along with them. Fortunately, cunning plans are my specialty... Not.

Oh well, copy-and-paste is what I say, and will always say!

if theirs only a few copy and paste would be best option... the way ur talkign about would involve shutting down both sites for a few hours etc.

i dont even think we can do database transfers with these free sites...

If that's not possible, then post by post of the most important information would have to by edited>copied>pasted onto new site by hand. Hard work, but I'm up for it. Boredom lol, it's my favourite pastime Laughing

Don't worry!

We will not lose ANYTHING from this forum. We won't lose the accounts, we wont lose the posts and we wont lose signatures (Player Profiles).

I will do a data transfer once we, if we get the new site up and running.


Right. So i guess everyone agrees, to get Plan 1 or Plan 2 if possible?

Yes. I vote for plan 2. Spam likes a big home. And so does useful information (sometimes I let it out instead of cramming it back in my mouth) occasionally.
