    You need to get your own server at /* thanks but no thanks */, that where I got mines, and I don't pay for monthly fees just Internet bills

    Its to many of us members that are truly active. and from the sound of it,all CP needs funded is the cost of the server. How about everybody just donate a lil bit. Its not hard. Just think about it. If 170 members donate a dollar each month, thats all the difference. I will be the first donate, who wit me?

    imma reply to a few of these, sorry if i missed anything...

    While I cannot offer any money to your cause, I hate to see a site that many people use and rely on go under. I have a couple of ideas...

    Have you ever considered switching to phpBB? It's been a while since I've fiddled around with any web forum software, but back in the day it seemed that phpBB was as good, if not better than vBulletin... And it's open source! That would cut out your vBulletin costs so you would be left with only domain and server costs.

    Now I'm not sure what sort of traffic this site gets, but $170/month seems like a lot of moneeey. Is a dedicated server really necessary? I'm assuming that all of the audio files are hosted elsewhere so you could probably get away with a $50/month dedicated virtual server... (mt) Media Temple - Web hosting - (dv) Dedicated-Virtual - Pricing

    Aside from that, the domain name cost is negligible. With a little bit of work I think you could keep your costs down to about $500-$600 a year... But like I said, I'm not sure what sort of traffic this site gets.
    vBulletin is superior than phpBB... anyway it's not the yearly costs that I need help with.. it's just the monthly cost of the server.

    Yes, a dedicated server is really needed.. even on this server we were having downtime issues and crashing.. until I disabled a few things and upgraded... take a look at the uptime stats before doing the above mentioned...
    Code:
    date          uptime       dns   connect   request      ttfb      ttlb

    thanks jam for your suggestions anyway.

    see above for dedicated server reason...

    lol i don't think posting on a job site is a good idea...

    the monthly cost of the server could easily be covered with Google Adsense, but my account was banned a few years ago for "invalid clicks"... before it was banned I was easily getting $300 month.. that's before the site had the traffic it has now and we were on a free/shared host.. and I would be willing to tell the new owner the hottest adsense placements...

    nah i don't make money from promo stuff.. and tbh i've not really tried to make money from the site for a couple years.... i'm not really sure what you mean by lease promo's? could you expand? thanks.

    CP I have decided that http://www.schellshockent.com is going to help aid the new official "Keep CP in charge of Crazypellas.net official movement"

    So what im gonna do is, ive dropped all the PDP's Hot pick items on http://www.schellshockent.com down by 25%, and any dedicated members on here that create a customer account and buy a hoodie, schell shock ent will donate 50% of the sale towards keepin this site in your hands

    cause ask anyone, it aint no crazypellas.net without CP running shit
    big THANKS PDP and lordbubba

    lets prevent this site going down, if it goes down then it shows that we are just greedy fuckers who dont not appreciate something good....
    thanks eraze but I'd rather not run the site on donations because the amount is not guaranteed every month.. i may try it tho.....

    By the way CP how long have we got before the Deadline
    see above re: donations.

    we're safe this month, and should be next month... not sure about after tho

    and i don't know why lord bubba/pdp's thread was archived...but its a great idea

    and also "The captain goes down with the ship"

    i'll go back 2 donating weekly like i did be4...........you told me 2 stop....
    that makes me and PDP, 2 people you can rely on

    but if 4 some reason you still wan't cp 2 fade 2 black...then i'm with you (sadly)

    and all i can say is...i will miss every1 who was under my wing/teachings for all these years
    and Co-Sign with Ex'.....you got my e-mail and msn i.d.....i'll always be an (im) away

    P.s. this would be a great time to implement Cp wear...other people do it 2 fund their shit so can we....

    thanks mx,

    re: the cp wear... still don't have a high quality logo... and to buy the items it batch the minimum order is 100.. i guess i'll look at bigcartel, cafepress e.t.c.

    Damn. I would hate to see this site go down. But to tell you the truth $2040 a year for payments on a server? Shit, you could've had a personal server in your home for a fraction of that. Even if we did chip in a few bonez, we still couldnt get more then $1000, in my opinion.

    when we first moved to the dedicated we did raise about 3/4 the year but i think i ended up putting about $500 to it myself...

    i dont think it would be unfair to charge a monthly fee after like a 1 month trial or something. straight up, everyone who posts music on cp, comes out 10 times better than before.

    you shouldn't be losing money helping out so many other pple ya dig

    is there a way to get a new adsense account that isn't linked to the banned account? or does google go by the name and address? if it does go by the address, would a PO Box be a valid workaround? if it goes by the name, would a DBA/Doing Business As be a workaround?

    edit:
    oOo, i just thought that maybe the domain crazypellas.net got banned. nvm then if that's the case.

    CP .. I've sent you a PM...

    And $170 is not that unheard of for a dedicated server. Over at warbeats.com my bill is $175/mo not counting bandwidth overages or the other things like software licenses, and other services that all add up.
