    we are making excellent progress towards our goal

    If you made a pledge ( or wish to make a pledge) please give some thought to turning it into a donation soon.

    the sooner we know how the pledges will come in, the sooner we know our fate


    it looks great but we can't afford to get too comfortable!

    Thanks everyone..... we know everyone cannot afford the larger amounts but those $30 donations en masse are really helping the cause

    this might be better suited in the main VH section not the guitars section.

    Quite right, too.

    There are some users who don't venture beyond the Guitar section, and so, as a consequence, won't have any idea about the crisis in our midst! I'm sure I don't need to emphasise how, if this site goes down, the guitar section goes with it - so we ALL need to play a part in keeping the place up and running.

    If it was me, I'd interrupt EVERY bloomin' thread with details of how to contribute!!!

    It would also do some of those guitar guys good to venture out and take a walk around the neighborhood every now and then.

    There's a good community outside.

    well you know Chris I used to agree with you and EVERY FREAKING TIME I ventured out and gave my opinion (thats what its about when a thread is started on VH and what this should be or this may or may not happen) some freakin guy "keyborad commando" would get rude and beligerent and go off for no damn reason and make a mountain out of a mole hill over someones opinion. So after close to 10 years of being a member on this awesome site, putting up with that at 40 years old.... I could care less about getting into an argument with some dumb ass over what may or may not happen with the band and I'll stick to what I do best... build VH guitars and hang with my buds on a spot where we can get along. I get enough crap to deal with at work every day and at home with family and when I am involved with something I love I'd prefer to enjoy it.

    on that note I do surf around on the other threads but I choose not to post much anymore on them due to what I said above. Back to the original post.... I stand corrected. You made good points guys and I do see why it should be posted on several forums. We are lucky to have this site and any effort to contribute is helpful. Good points for sure

    I understand all of that. I think you'll find that those "keyboard commandos" are a rare thing now days. I could be wrong but it's been pretty civil on this site for awhile. No harm, no foul.

    I have to say Chris after thinking about it for a little bit...... I do agree with you it seems as though that is a rare thing on here now days on all the sections.

    it is a friendly place to hang out more so these days and thats good.

    OK so everybody take a deep cleansing breath....we'll have our answer from Brett on Friday

    and that alone is good news

    gives us a few days for those who have not yet had the chance to make good on their pledges to do so

    and it gives Brett a few days to put the negativity of some of the annoucnment thread in perspective and make his decision

    as he said, he wants to know that this is not going to be an annual crisis and that supporting solely thru subscriptions is not going to change the nature of this place...cause if it's going to change, I think we'd all rather see it closed

    so just hang tight linkers.....after all it's what we do best

    Good news! looks like we have some D-Day subscriptions coming in!



    that's excellent news...hopefully with today being another pay day we'll get a few more and the mailed stuff will arrive

    Remember, if you can't afford or don't wish to donate at the larger $51.50 or $100 levels there's always the $30 subscription

    it's important that we have subscriber numbers to show Brett that we have enough members who will support this site in the future ( and we had hoped for 150 members to be sustainable but I think we are missing that goal for member numbers )

    those $30 donations are what are going to get us the subscriber numbers that we assured Brett would be out there....remember...there were 127 pledges at the beginning!
