OK how about we get like one of those free forum builder sites and make a backup forum using it and announce it on this website that if ever this forum stops working to go there.

We have PF. That should have been open while the forum was in repair.

oh.

fuck.

what's the url?

INCOMING PERSONAL OPINION. DROP ALTITUDE.

Honestly, I would prefer to drop the Chewiki. To me, it really became a place for old fads and 4chan memes to fester. I went through it a few times way back when the thing was being hosted by Conrad and it didn't appear to have any practical use. Yes, the Chewiki is sort of a playground for members to fuck around with topics and what not. However, in my opinion, that's not worth shelling out $100. Maintaining the front page and forum is more important as the two are integral to this community's continuation.

Of course, this is my opinion. I've left the final decision up to Rabbit. If he thinks we can raise enough money or that the Chewiki can be supported by other means, I've given him permission to go ahead. I'm just not keen on shelling out more money for something that is not necessary.

You can be upset with me. I don't mind too much. I just want to be straightforward with all of you.

Chewbot gives congrats for not getting any warnings for over 5 years Chewbot gives congrats for not getting any warnings for over 3 years For being on the Vanilla forums for 258 days before it was shut down You went to Ohayocon with all those other goons. Good man. For service. SuperYoshi article Poopcast, interview. Helping out on the front page. Good boy. Well. You do own the place. Funniest short story in Rabbit's contest.

You mean archived? We'll try. Rabbit said (and I can attest to his statement) that Vanilla is a bitch and a half to deal with.

It frustrates me to read some of the comments here so I will try to be as deathly clear as I can.

-The Chewiki's backup still exists and could be restored quickly.

-The server in its current state cannot accommodate the Chewiki or any other major site additions.

-The Chewiki is non-essential.

-We are not dropping this place for a free forum site. That would forfeit all kinds of services, including customization and essentials such as the news page.

-The Vanilla forum's backup exists but cannot be restored without substantial work.

-The database storage system for Vanilla is the software equivalent to being beaten with a reed fifty times per minute for eight months.

-Vanilla crashed on our server before it was even active.

-Vanilla crashed on my local machine while I was testing the software.

-Vanilla's stability is compromised by having HTML switched on.

-Vanilla's stability is compromised by having users posting on it.

-Vanilla's support team consists of a handful of people commenting about how some available themes could only appeal to 8 year olds.

-Vanilla has the uncanny ability to embed itself into a server like a tick and not have any tools for restoration.

-For the analogically impaired, Vanilla is terrible software.

-The old forum was fun, but there is no way in hell I'm going to let this site use that software actively again.

-In order to have the chance to restore anything, the Chewiki and the old forum as an archive included, we're going to need lots of money.

-Rabbit and TINS do not have lots of money.

-Collectively, the members of the site have lots of money.

-It would be extremely helpful to have a small slice of that collective money to pay for an upgrade.

-Even if we can't afford it, no one should be particularly worried, since this server works fine, and it's fun even without the Chewiki.

Sorry for all the condescension and sarcasm, but some of the comments in here lead me to believe that either I was unclear, or people aren't paying attention.

What about a money order? Are we allowed to do money orders?

Also, we don't need Chewiki. It's fun and all, but if it costs a pretty penny, don't have it.

Money order....?

I think that'd be a bit problematic. Paypal is much, much easier to work with.

Well, thank goodness. Because as much as I like this place, I don't want to donate for something I never use, and something I don't care about.

Vanilla - it's a site layout. Get used to this one. Simple.

Chewiki - I still don't get the big draw. You could write a fake newspaper about yourself and get the same effect.

Even though we need to drop some site areas to maintain enough disk space, I believe the one thing that should be salvaged at all costs would have to be the News Archive. It's like our very own time capsule, if we lost that, we'd lose every bit of history that was recorded ever since the site started.

How about this?

If we could donate more money for a better server and/or hard drive would it be possible to put back the vanilla software?
