We are having problems accessing the money in the treasury. Paypal is being weird and we’re having some trouble sorting it out. Our license is past due and I would like to take this opportunity to move us back to SMF, which is 100% free.
The drawbacks –
There is no converter to get us from our current version of IPB to the current version of SMF. Everyone will have to re-register and the boards will be empty. We’ll be starting from day 1.
Ah, that’s pretty much the only downside.
The good stuff –
1. SMF is free! No more licensing fees, ever.
2. If you register over there before Friday, August 6 I will personally reset your post count and Plaudit count to whatever your current count is on the current forums.
3. Did I mention it is free?
In the mean time, I’ve swapped all sales and donations over to my personal PayPal, but it’s really not a good long term solution as I use my PP quite a bit.
It is a fresh install, no nothing. Over the next week I’ll be setting it up. Please continue to post here. Please go sign up over there. That way I can start doing post counts at my leisure and am not inundated all at once.
On or around Friday August 6 I will turn off the IPB forum and move over to the SMF forum.
Once this move is completed, our only yearly expense is hosting. We pay 100$ a year to Sustainable Websites. As a reminder, they use 100% renewable energy to run their servers, it’s why we went with them. I am in the midst of moving my own sites over to them as well (one is already there, and I am waiting on my other hosting to run out before I move the other million sites I run LOL). I can’t recommend them enough. No, I am not signed up as an affiliate (maybe I should be!)
