    I have been talking with Zac via email. If you guys put together a kickstarter project and raise around 2-3k I will handle moving the forum to a new server with updates etc.

    Here's the part I'm not 100% about...

    Software: $300 max
    Hosting: Between $9-$15/ month on a non-dedicated server

    Any personal sites of yours (or AGD proper) could all run on the same server. And in effect you would still retain control of them.

    Not sure where the $3k comes from.

    Because I have to pay guys to go pull the data off the server, setup the new one, buy the software etc. I will be transferring it to my current provider away from Delaware,net so that is two bills.

    Then I still have to take care of Zupe because the store runs on that server on more old software. All the parts and products need to be transferred and setup on the new store with new software. Thats a job in itself. The agd website has to go over too. I am not going to do that, someone has to pay for it. Dave doesn't have the dough either.

    So its more than just transferring a list of members and some posts.

    Thumbs up

    I think there would be more sales for the AGD online store if it were easier to navigate.

    Like being able to click a "buy" button and pay with Paypal.

    If you have to call in to buy something, to me thats a sales prevention website.

    Either way if Tom or Dave or someone wants to set up an official "Update AO" Paypal account and keep us updated on the progress I'm in.

    I'd be more than happy to actually put my money where my mouth is. If the kickstarter helps out AGD as well, so much the better. Easier navigation - and easier to buy - at AGD's website would benefit AGD (or so I would like to think). As for easier navigation, don't forget to make it easy to purchase for all the non U.S. customers out there. *hint hint*

    Oh, and to make a very easy incentive for people to contribute to the kickstarter without any cost/discount to it, how about that everyone who contributes a certain sum gets their photo at the top of the page, much like the gentlemen at the top of the page at the moment.

    Well I'm looking at the Kickstarter info.

    I can start it, but I'm going to end up getting hit with income tax on the funds received. So it may be better if Tom sets this up himself. I mean, I CAN, but I'd rather not pay this in my taxes next year.

    kind of a different subject... on another site (neons.org) dealers pay a fee to be able to sell their stuff and have their own forum section...

    sorry, luke and all them, but it is extra revenue

    Iíll say this in my most happy and cheerful voice:
    Are you sure you want your aftermarket parts and services to take a walk?
    If you think there is any real money making after market parts for the Automag think again.
    If I told you how much money I make doing this you would call me an idiot for doing it.

    it was just a suggestion. I know theres not alot of profit in this. I'm just posting what another forum is doing to raise money. I'm not AT ALL saying that youre taking advantage of us.

    dont ever take what I say as an attack on you. I'm a generously nice person... its also why I'm so poor

    BT, can you edit your first post putting a list up for those that will pay to support this site.

    Well, once Tom sets up the Kickstarter account, we can link to it and go from there.

    But as I said - that part is something Tom's going to need to handle, I'm not willing to take the financial tax hit.

    I'm no dummy. I wouldn't call you an idiot. I'd just place yet another order for work.

    I read the details on Kickstarter.com and it looks like we don't apply. They will not let projects go on that involve website stuff.

    Anyone have any other ideas?

    Everyone could send me a check and if we don't get to the target price you can cancel the checks.

    That would work for those of us currently outside CONUS. Although I'm not sure how refunds would work.

    BT, I'll pay.
