CEG Finances

We're running out of funds... As it stands right now, we won't have enough to cover the web hosting costs when it renews for the month on Aug 11. We're at $33 and the monthly charge is $99.

Little help please!

You can paypal to lkinley@contour.org

If the SZ funds don't cut it, then I'll be looking to see if Lance has any new $1300 purchases .

As we told everyone at SZ05, the funds raised would be going to Lance to keep the site running. I think it's awesome that the people that attended could support contour.org for nearly a FULL YEAR! You really should give yourselves another pat on the back!

good point, I just feel alot of the new people will not donate anything, more so because they didn't have to go through almost loosing this great resource and community that we have

I was just thinking how PBS gives you something for your donation as a thank you, that is what I was trying to get at, but obviously there isn't a way to give anyone anything tangable nor should there be the need

if you think about it I would bet those with the highest post counts would be the ones donating anyway and that shows already

how about it from a pride standpoint, it would so you care about what is going on here?

Yeah you know what you are talking about. Not!

The server has had rough 99.9% up time since the relocation to a COLO. We have virtually unlimited bandwidth, 100% control of the OS, and we don't have to maintain the hardware.

I hosted it for 2 years on an ailing server, prior to that it was at MMars house which had frequent power outages.

Oh and BTW the $100 a month is half what we paid before simple for the highspeed line. So we have made effort to cut costs.

If you have any more questions let me know.

Guys,

I am moving to a new dealer at the end of the month, Team Ford (www.teamfordlv.com). I will be able to get maybe $50 per month for advertising money if I can post a banner ad or get my own space on the forums. I finally have a company that is behind me 100% and will allow me to do things I never did before.

Let me know if this is do-able.

BTW, the site has not revamped yet, that is part of my job and will have the online catalog like Signature did. Do not bother calling Signature after 08/01/05 as they are dropping the Inet parts sales as soon as I leave.

Ha ha... funny.

We're ok for August.

On another financial note, I'm considering dumping UBB.threads for vBulletin. I've avoid upgrading versions of UBB because of some nasty bugs in every major release and their support is $125 a year for downloading new versions.

vBulletin costs $160 and then $30 a year for maintenance. They do have an import script and vBulletin is very robust -- many very, very large sites use it.

I like vBulletin. Sites that I've used with it have avatars and no aliases: are those settings? I would assume so, but it doesn't hurt to ask. I wouldn't mind not having aliases, and if we could get avatars (I know they're disabled now) that would be cool. If I have DSL now almsot everyone must!

AWESOME idea. As a c2.com wiki addict, I think that a wiki would be a great way to keep the FAQs more fluid. They stagnate VERY quickly, and this would allow more info from threads to be available in a non-time-sensitive format.

(Hard-core CEG'er)
07/28/05 09:50 PM
Re: CEG Finances

I'm a fan of the Wiki idea too. I've taken issue with the facts that our main site FAQs are separated from the forum FAQs, making it sometimes difficult to find something (e.g. hazing headlights is on the main FAQ site but also has updated info in a forum sticky FAQ.). Wiki would make a nice integration of the two, assuming it's not abused

Not sure about VBulletin; then again it's probably because the few sites I've seen use it in a bouncy-90s-gaudy-bubbly way (bright colors, 3D graemlins, other eye candy) that distracts me from the content. I've gotten too used to CEG's almost-too-flat theme with UBBThreads

I don't think it will be abused, wikis tend to police themselves. Yes, anyone can write to them, but any one can delete too, so if someone says something stupid, then all it takes is another person noticing it and deleting it. And if it gets out of hand you can always lock them.

The only problem is that all it takes is one person who thinks they know what is "correct" and what isn't, to decide to delete useful stuff. I've seen a couple "faq" posts that were so far off base they didn't warrant even remembering, much less a sticky. I'd hate for that person to be able to author a "faq" for all to read.

As Ray stated, FAQ abuse would be an issue. The moderators have a difficult enough time policing the forums - how out of control would a wiki be and how much flaming would ensue in the forums as a result of such abuse?

I would prefer to see FAQs limited to the moderators of the respective forums. The forums I moderate have suggestion boxes that allow anyone to contribute anything. There is no "stagnation" in the forum FAQs.

There are only two problems I see right now:
1. the FAQ / How-to separation between the main site and the forums
2. moderators who do not keep FAQs and stickies up to date and clean

IMHO, change the forums, but leave the FAQs / How-tos in the hands of those who you (Lance) know you can trust.

I'm not up on alot of what's being discussed here, but I can see what Ray is talking about becoming a real problem. How many times have we seen threads that have mutated into something totally different from their original subject? I've seen simple subjects turned into flame wars. What if one of the posters simply decides to start deleting or changing what he doesn't agree with?

Re: CEG Finances

Instead of updating, why can't we just have 1 or 2 webmasters help keep the gateway site up to date with the FAQ's and such?

Replace the moderators that dont do their job!

I owned/coded a site up until 3 days ago, when my hosting provider deleted my site permanently for eating through 4.17 gb of bandwith in a single day (collegehumor.com linked to my site)

So...im free now. I have HTML, JAVA, COBOL, C++ experience. If you need help Lance, please let us all know what requirements you need to be met, I am sure there is someone on here that is far more skilled than me...I dont get my degree until June of next year.

This would help to keep us from upgrading. While eye-candy and upgrading seem desireable....this forum in its present state is in perfect functioning condition. Why mess with a good thing?

I third that! Is my brake problem in troubleshooting, or is it the brakes forum? If I recall, we used to be able to do that, but then traffic got too heavy and all-forum searches were slowing things down.

Re: CEG Finances

The current CEG design works but IMO could be greatly improved upon. Honestly I like the graphical design of FCO alot better. Our site is almost too plain and simple looking. And the content on CEG is golden but it seems disorganized.

Whatever happens thanks to Lance and others who have kept this site running.

It is refreshing to return to CEG after having spent a few minutes on other sites. The simplistic form really has it's advantages. All of the stuff going on at Escape Central, for example, is extremely distracting.

We don't seem to hear from Lance much any more, but I would like to continue to express my appreciation for making this site available. I hope we still have it going strong for many years to come. I hope it is around when my car hits 300,000 miles.

Ummmmm...who cares....
The site is ran off of donations. This isn't a pay to view site, there are no Gold Member standards (at least that you can pay for anyway). If you decide to donate for the info you use it's up to you to decide how-much.

So really no one is ripping you off besides yourself if you look at it that way...

Re: CEG Finances

A couple of things, most of which have been pointed out:

This site is free. Membership is free. Accessing the info is free. Getting help is free. Donating to the site is VOLUNTARY. If the site coss $300 to run and we donate $600, then the extra is used for the next year, upgrades, etc.

ZetecChris: If you have any information that you think is applicable to this remarkably large accusation, I would suggest you continue your efforts through PM. You are more than welcome to PM me and talk in confidence.

Clarification!

This site cost $100/monthly, aka $1200/yearly, just for the Colo Server. This does not include colo maintenance or the administrative services provided Lance and myself. Not that Lance or I ever have or will make a dime, nor did MMars when he hosted it on his T1.

That was half what we were paying before.

I've been thru the details before, it's a great price considering the 100% uptime the last year and recockulous bandwidth.

PM me if you have any other question or you care to release you sources on our costs.

The site costs $99/month for hosting, plus forum software costs, plus domain renewal costs. The site was $124 per month when we had a support contract, but since we weren't using it, I dropped that $25/month option.

Re: CEG Finances

With regards to the new software, can there be a request box for features we don't yet have? (I'm not talking avatars, sig pics or things that have been hashed over time and time again.) Since software will require some coding to be implemented anyway, I'm thinking might as well code requests at the same time before everything is transferred over.

For example, my request: if someone posts a huge pic or link on a page, then all of the posts are resized to fit that picture/link. I've seen some forum software that judges each post's width to the size of the window, rather than all of them as a collective ... the end result being one large picture does not force me to scroll side-to-side for each other post on that entire page.

Nope, that's just the money that came in from the raffle items. Elky's can brought in just over $200 he said. So just under $1000!! Good job everyone!

Im really sorry about that Stazi. I honestly dont remember getting a PM about you bringing SVT brakes. I just checked my 300 PMs in my inbox and I dont have any from you regarding that. Only thing I have is a couple PMs regarding my bad wheel bearing.

And next year I'll do something other than rock chip repairs. Maybe I'll have some products available from my soon to be new venture.
