    Ive been keeping up with this thread for a while and agree with the theory that everyone who has read it is willing to donate but may not have posted. We need a new thread with an ongoing list of those contributing and periodically Tom can post the total collected. I'm in for a donation of course.

    I would definitely contribute to this.

    Databases have their place, but sometimes they are solutions looking for problems.

    Itís about the data. If you want to protect this public data, I donít see how sweeping it off the floor of one central server space and dumping it into another central server space achieves that goal.

    A crowdsourcing campaign reward might be something like an autographed copy of the exported AO database on blu-ray media. And then people like me can seed it out or reorganize it as I am wont to do.

    Also helps you get the "old monkey" of the database archives off your back.

    Definitely not on the A-Team.

    Well, the issue is that the current server is one fart away from extinction. We need new hardware that will live for longer than we have. (We realistically could use a shared hosting plan - no REAL need for a private server.)

    I will put in, this is my only forum!

    In all seriousness have you considered selling it? As someone who literally grew up on AO, I would love to see it be brought back to life. There may be a few enterprising members who would be interested if you don't find yourself willing to put the effort back into it.

    Just a thought.

    Yes there is people willing to donate, but we have nothing to say.

    Save the Automag.

    I'll be more than happy to donate, paypal, buy a membership, buy a raffle ticket, kickstart, indiegogo, whatever. I dont need a reward, incentive or prize for doing so.


    I dont frequent here often, but I still have my first marker (a minimag) from 15 years ago, I'll never sell it, and I always need automags.org here for me whenever I get the mag bug.


    Saw the posting on MCB.

    Tom, if I remember correctly itís against the rules to auction stuff on the forum; I was wondering if I get permission to run a parts auction and or raffle in the dealer forum or better yet in the main forum (Just one thread or one each) with all the proceeds going to the cause?

  17. #197
    Tom, Since we have the URL we might want to sticky or add the link to the top of the forum.

    I went ahead and donated as well

    Despite the trepidation that some of the threads I have read on other boards contain I'm in.

    I have said it before and I will say it again.

    If TK says it will take X I believe it will take X. If he thinks this is the best route to go then I will accept it as the best route to go.

    I do suggest that the link to indigo be moved to the top of the thread though. Frankly I did not read it all

    If there is any money left over I will donate it to the Paintball Scholarship Fund. That should take care of the people on the edge.

    Tom, I am not sure what server you have in mind or if you want suggestions, but wiredtree offers some great packages and has very good service/support. They will even trasnfer your server for you for free (https://helpdesk.wiredtree.com/index...1441&nav=0,50). They will convert your plesk to cpanel as well since they do not use plesk. Just a thought.

    Well, it looks like we'll be getting ourselves a new server and new software.

    Kinda happy to see AO'ers pull together for something like this.

    Tom - this will be the FIRST time that a Pre-Order actually went well on AO.
