I was over at lop just now and D has a pinned thread announcing he is more or less shutting the forum down.

I do not post there anymore but still the same it is always sad to see these things happen.

It looks at this time that this forum might be needing a bigger server real quick.

They want to delete a lot of old post data and start over from scratch, that would save thim $450 a month, but if you think about it, it is rare to go back and read an old post.

Exactly. Through poor management decisions he's wasted thousands of dollars to preserve something that is basically useless. So fucking dumb if you think about it.

Just imagine what that money could've been used for, from site improvements and incentives to actually entice people to want to post there or remain posting there. Terrible management, it's amazing that place is even still around. It could've been the best CT site if it had proper management.

I went to read the thread. If he deletes archives he only needs one server and says he saves $450 a month. $550 for two servers so Scratchinghead
He says he lost ad revenue because of questionable content.
Didn't he ban He Man? :thinking3:

What happened to the ads? How do they get lost?
What do you mean by start over?

Care to show cost comparisons of maintaining versus starting over?


Too much content against their policies.

Our costs currently are (per month)

2 servers = 550$
Cloudflare = $20
Chat = $70

If I delete all posts we only need one server (reducing costs with $450)


So I went over there to see fore me self. It gets me thinking , how much is it to run Fringe? I mean Chillbro is not on our asses for costs to run Fringe. We should in my opinion run a once a year or twice a year drive to raise funds to put our coin instead of CHillbro always footing the bill. Do you know a site that it as free as it gets.? I make threads like hell to attract newbies. The forum is growing by not my account but a collaborate affair. Why have chat for a few when chat is ongoing in threads anyway. Anyways we should help what one can afford on a yearly or other bases. Just a thought...

Just means one lost his ad revenue., another plus here. No ads to mess a clean forum up. You don't realise the beauty of posting here. The way all forums should be.
