    The Site's Future

    Guys,

    I'm at a crossroads here again with the site. Although this is obviously not like last year, where we lost the whole thing, but here's the deal.

    Obviously VH isn't doing much anymore. There's little new to talk about anymore apart from Dave's radio show, and I don't foresee anything new on the horizon. But I could be wrong of course.

    I know this site is more than VH, and we're a community of people just hanging, and that's basically why I've kept it going as long as I have. But financially, I no longer can do it. For a lot of you $150 a month extra isn't the end of the world, but unfortunately for me, it is. Bills, family, basic necessities of life at this point are things that I need to worry about, and not every month how to find an extra $150 for a site devoted to a dead band.

    Everyone donated last year when the site died, and that was incredible, and it paid for 8 months of hosting, which was such a load off. But now I've had to shell out $800 for the last 5 months, and I just simply can't anymore. I also don't keep wanting to say "Donate, donate." I don't feel comfortable doing it and I don't want to anymore, so enough of that.

    The only way to fund this site is to have it pay for itself monthly, is some kind of premium fee for $5 a year. If 300 people do it every year, we'd be fine. I just don't know what I could offer anyone that they can't get somewhere else for free on another site. But at this point, I'll look for anything.

    What if for $5 a year you got this:
    Custom Avatars (not vulgar though)
    Some space to upload files
    Access to some downloads
    More private message storage

    I don't know apart from that what else I could offer anyway, but that's my idea. Anyone have any other suggestions, let me know. But I'm leaning towards this as a last gasp to keep the site going to where I don't have to worry about funding it. Because I can't pick up the slack anymore, and something has got to be decided on this month.

    Thanks for your input and your support of the site for so many years now.

    Perfect. I'd pay 5 bucks a year just for the custom avatars.

    No problemo, boss.

    Yes, I suppose you could pay me 1500 a year and I'll stay. A little more would be better and would get a few more brilliant posts out of me, but if you were to provide that every January, you could .....oh wait. You want ME to pay YOU??

    Well, ok.

    I'm glad you can add seen, it's too bad I can't....$150 x 12 is actually $1800...so we need 360 people to do it yearly.

    180 to do 10 or 90 to do 20.

    I'd guess a good 20-30 people would go 20. I think 3-4 or so would go more and many many would go 5. I don't see this as a problem.

    You need to put a time table on it. Get the little thermometer going like they have at fundraisers and put the goal on it for a completion date. Have a backup plan in case it doesn't work out ie. spend accumulations on the hosting fees you can until they run out and pull the plug or keep a record of who's donated what and be prepared to send it back if we dont' make it.
