  1. Thanks @biddie_fiddler. I don't think in the 20 years+ we have been running, we have ever made a profit, just broke even, as back in the day server costs, paying some people behind the scenes to maintain, and software upgrades, have always put a dent in it. I am indebted to @k31thfor his support in working behind the scenes in upgrading, and ensuring the site is still around. Working on weekends, responding to emails, and troubleshooting problems, as they break. Keith is an absolute champion.. Thanks for anyone contributing, now and in the future. It makes such a difference.
  2. Hi All, Apologies for the dramas the last 48 hours. We have spent numerous hours trying to get the site working, after we moved it to a cheaper option to ensure that the site remains active moving forward. With the move we have managed to move to a platform which is only one third of what we were paying before , this will help us be around much longer, but did come with its teething issues, which we faced over the last 48 hours. If you do notice any bugs / issues, please reach out, and we will escalate to the hosting team to resolve. We have noticed a few issues though, which look to have contributed towards the failure's. This included us running a old version of software which has not been updated for several months, causing us to rely on old technology, which has now been retired to keep the site running. This was resolved this morning at a cost. It has been a stressful 48 hours, and would if you do use the forum a donation to the site would make such a difference to paying for the costs incurred today, as well as set us up to look at managing alot of this moving forward to allow us to upgrade freely, and keep things still alive, in a cost effective manner.

  3. Apologies guys. We have moved to a new server to try and save some costs, and its now thrown more errors, and more costs into the mix. Working to try and get this resolved with urgency.
  4. Well another year, has come and gone, and its that time again to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Its the time of the year to spend those treasured moments with loved ones, to create memories that last a lifetime, and to take the time to breathe and be happy for the blessings for the last year, big or small. Life has its strange ways of often throwing curve balls our way in which we need to deal with, interest rate rises, world crisis, and of course the dreadful COVID. But use this time to regenerate, and live for the now. I want to personally thank all of you that still support the site, whether it be by visiting, being a part of the community, or throwing in a dollar or two to keep us afloat. As always the site costs, a good amount of money to keep going with server costs, hosting fees, and software upgrades (which we still need to do), but we keep going for you, our members. It still makes me smile, when i see a XR6 Turbo, Typhoon, F6 310 on the road... Much love to all our members again at this time of the year. We hope you have a great one, and more importantly a safe one. If you do want to donate to the site, our link is always open, and funds will be used for upgrades, hosting, and to keep the lights on - https://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/clients/donations/
  5. Thanks all for doing this, alas its time again.... and thats in USD. Which works out to be just under $200 AUD. Any help is truly appreciated, been paying for the forum out of my own pocket, and the differences in donations every month, so this is not even possible below. Thanks again!
  6. Thanks guys. You are the XRTurbo OGs... Really appreciate it. Will pay this renewal now.
  7. Agree. Thanks @Puffwagon We are sitting at $183 AUD in total around $50 AUD short.
  8. Hi All, Hope you are all having a great start to 2022, and that things are going well. We have just received a renewal for our forum software for Invision Community, which gives us renewal for 6 mths. Our license for this is $150 USD, and thus need to raise the funds to update this and keep things going. If you would like to donate to this please click on the link https://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/clients/donations/ it is up for renewal in 6 days. We appreciate the support that the community offers to the site to keep it going. Unfortunately advertising and costs for the site only make up around 1/5 of actual costs, so is at a deficit monthly. Any help is appreciated.
  9. Thanks guys truly appreciated. Allows us to update the site and plugins as needed.
  10. Hi Mate It usually ends up being close to $400 or so when you include all the plugins and software licenses. Thanks to those donated so far, truly appreciated.
  11. Hi Guys, Hope you are all well in this crazy time we now live in. Time once again for the yearly upgrades and costs to keep the forum running, to update the software to the latest version, and pay for all the licenses that keep the features you use and love active! Would appreciate if you do have any spare $$ to throw our way to keep the site running optimally. Our licenses run out in about 6 days, so time is of the essence! FYI our advertising only covers the cost of the server monthly (just barely), so these donations really help! Link to donate is here - You can donate to the cause by clicking the following link - https://www.fordxr6turbo.com/forum/clients/donations/ Lots of thanks as always to our amazing team and members for not only digging deep, but allowing us to still be around (and yes we have been around for over 18 yrs! - talk about making me feel old!)
