Thanks for the positive houghts everyone. You guys rock.
But, this site will forever be free for all members. So thanks for the offers, but we respectfully decline.
As for speed and uptime/downtime issues, those should be improving soon (I'd say within the next 2 weeks). There *may* be some downtime soon while we improve the hardware, so please bear with us for the time being.
I'm not trying to be negative here, but I'm a regular on 8thcivic.com which has paid (VIP) members. These members have all kinds of ridiculous signatures and graphics under their name on the left when they post.. makes the whole forums an eyesore and looks really ricey. I hope that this can be prevented with this forum.
