I've been meaning to get around to setting this up since 4.1 came out, I just didn't get around to it until now.

Basically, when we moved from the old VJ Army forum to this new one, in order to preserve the look and feel of the forum as well as all the old posts, we needed a license for IPB (the forums software) which cost $150, and another $60 to pay for the IPB techs to do the migration (although the latter ended up being somewhat unnecessary when I was able to redo the migration myself after our server crashed, it still got paid anyway). At the time, I paid the full $210 out of my own pocket as time was tight and I just wanted to get on with moving the forum without worrying about organising some kind of fund raiser.

We have plenty of time now though so I'm opening donations for people to contribute to that charge. To be clear:

I do not expect anyone to contribute more than $10 to this. If I put in $10 and 20 other people put in $10 that covers it right there, and I know there are a lot more than 20 people here who use the forums.
Donation is strictly voluntary. You do not need to pay if you can't afford to, I don't mind.
The donation will cover the $210 paid to IPB only. When we reach that target donations will be closed and extra money will be refunded. I can handle the monthly hosting costs on my own.

So, if you consider still having the same interface and all the old posts from VJA to be worth $10 to you, I'd greatly appreciate it. You can send money through Paypal to gmmazz@hotmail.com or use the below button to pay via credit card (also through Paypal).




Thanks!

Are there no migration scripts for IPB -> better, free forum software?

(no offense but IPB sorta sucks a lot)

I don't know. To be honest this is the first time I've heard of anyone having a problem with it.

Kind of a moot point now really since we already paid for it.

I'll help soon, since I'm starting on overtime and will have plenty of disposable income more than likely. smile.gif
