    Default Anyone want to take over RUNNING CrazyPellas.net?

    Hey everyone,

    I really don't want to post this and is totally unexpected for me too but...

    Due to circumstances out of my control,
    I may have to hand over ownership of Crazy Pellas to someone else who is able to afford the running costs.

    Or else, the site would just go offline, and maybe return at a later date,
    which I don't think anyone would want.

    Basically the costs are:
    Server: $170/month
    vBulletin: $40 renew/year
    vBSEO: $35 renew/year
    Hide/Thanks Hack: $30 renew/year
    Style: $30 renew/year
    Domain: $8 renew/year

    So roughly $2200/year...

    I have been able to afford this fine for the past 3 years (the time we've been on a dedicated server),
    but in a month or so I may not be able to.

    If someone was to take over the site I would prefer it if I could stay on and continue working on the site.

    I would also prefer if they were an active/respected member here.


    If anyone is genuinely interested please contact me for further details:
    PM: Crazy Pellas
    Email: DJCP.CrazyPellas@gmail.com
    MSN: DJCP_CrazyPellas@hotmail.com
    AIM: DJCPCrazyPellas

    MySpace: MySpace.com - www.CrazyPellas.net - Music Resource & Community - 21 - Male - www.myspace.com/crazypellas
    Twitter: Crazy Pellas (CrazyPellas) on Twitter
    YouTube: YouTube - CrazyPellas's Channel


    Try and remember, that my timezone is GMT, so the easiest way to contact me will be emailing me, or leaving me a message here, myspace, twitter or youtube....



    Thanks,
    Crazy Pellas


    [EDIT]
    basically it's just the monthly cost which I can't afford....

    I've put up some more ads to try.. and you can subscribe for $3.50/month to remove the ads

    Fuck!! No way can this site go under. I really wish i had a job right now so i could donate some cash.

    CP i wish u the best of luck in getting through this. I know no matter what im sticking with this site till the end. Which Hopefully has no end anytime soon.

    If for any reason no one can take over and ur forced to shut down, and decide to bring the site back up later when u have the money. You have my Personal AIM account already so Contact me when its up. And i will help as best as i can putting Pellas and Instrumentals back on here.

    I've never really posted on this site, truth be told I joined back in High School when I wanted to get in to DJ'ing and whatnot, but since then I haven't had the money to really pursue it.

    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.

    Yes, I never understood why we needed a dedicated server. It's a FORUM, after all. I've seen WAY bigger and more active forums with over 50,000+ members. Anyways, if you can't keep it up, post it on a job search site like SNAGAJOB or Monster. Tell them that they can make money somehow, lol.

    wow...that sucks. Speaking of the traffic.....do you make money off of any of the promo stuff on here. If not have you ever thought about trying to lease promos? Wish I had the money to donate also but I'm laid off.......hopefully we find a solution quick fast and n a hurry

    Hey bro appreciate you taking the time to make that thread, but I closed it because I figured that this thread will serve the purposes.


    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


    WANT BLACKWALLSTREET GEAR OR NJD GEAR, GO TO WWW.SCHELLSHOCKENT.COM TO GO TO MY STORE, I GOT THE OFFICIAL STORE, I AM THE ONLY OFFICIAL SELLER

    well i like the ideas of CP cutting down his cost, plus i belive that it would be fine if member paid say 5 to 10 dollars a month.. am willing to do so... all the way from Zambia ... i been on site like mad, i love it i i Dont mind converting my Kwacha to to dollar and doing a small deposit every month...


    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....

    CP easy solution use a freeware forum, and we all just use zshare to up music or divshare...even the free forums have ways to upload music wit the free addons

    I agree...we don't really need to be hosting files...when 99% of us use zshare/others

    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....

    Its Great Working With You Cuz I Know All Da Tracks Will Come Out Great~Dj Excrucial.~

    Dj MXBI :Thats why i keep my cp title As "Legendary"
    Zay:oh yes you are
    Zay:gotta listen to some one who's "Legendary"
