    Talking 2021 Server Donations & Beyond! - Please Read!!

    Hi all,

    It's been a very busy few weeks here, and I've been setting up lots of different features, and am making lots of changes, hopefully for the better. The biggest change is that the web site is now set up on SSL, and is totally secure and encrypted. I've been wanting to do that for years.

    The next change is this...the server cost is dropping!! That's right folks, no more $4,000. We are not switching servers, but I worked a deal to get our cost down. Drum roll please....ok it's down to $2,400 per year, so $1,600 less! Here's the rub though, we need to raise that money on or before July 1st this year. Yes it's quick, I know. We basically have 3 1/2 weeks to get there. I know we can do it, but I will need your help of course.

    Next thing. We are now using PayPal again. Yay! The VHL Donate link at the top of the site takes you to your subscription page here. You simply select a package, click, pay, and you're done. There's no notifying me or anything, it's all automated again. You get your Premium Member permissions immediately and you're all set. I've even re-calculated the costs if you are overseas and are paying a different currency, to make it easier for those in far away lands. We still have the three options, $30, $51.50, and $100. I know some people like to give more, and if you really have some strong need to do that, you can just send a PayPal donation to brett@vhlinks.com. But then make sure you PM me here to hook your account up for the year. I toyed with the idea of making the subscriptions recurring, but I don't think it's right.

    Don't worry if you like to send me a check, you can still do that. Just contact me for info. Also, you have to be a registered user to make a donation via our internal system. And you must donate at least the minimum package of $30. It's just simple and easy that way. If you can't donate, don't worry about it, it's not a requirement!! I will also be closing our Go Fund Me account as well. To get to the subscription page quickly, go here:
    https://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/payments.php

    PREMIUM MEMBERSHIPS

    I've also made a lot of the changes to the Premium Membership you receive upon donating. Below is a list of what you receive, and take notice of the new added items in bold. Remember you get all these things no matter which donation package you select.

    1. Your Own Photo Album (see "Albums" link at top / 500 photos and 40 MB of space) **
    2. Points For VHL Life Awards (30 points for each $1 donated / $30 is 900 points)
    3. Custom Avatar - Animated or Normal
    4. Custom User Title
    5. Custom Profile Pic - Animated or Normal
    6. Custom Image In Signature
    7. 30 MB Of Upload Space (up from 10 MB)
    8. Larger PM Box (now 2,000 messages)
    9. Access To Member Forums
    10. Set Self To Invisible Forum Mode
    11. Beautiful Premium Member Badge

    ** I'm really happy to offer the Photo Album option. I know people are always looking for places to upload photos and then post here. Well now you can! Please note that you still cannot post porn, so don't.

    I believe that's everything. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here. I tried to simplify this as much as I could, I didn't want you guys to have hours of reading.

    The government could use you. Lowering costs is my specialty too. Well done.

    Yeah something tells me that one might be gone.

    And got the sub. Thanks man!!!! I was a little nervous about PayPal after all these years working, but it did. I'm still not sure why they kicked me off LOL.

    Not to get off topic, but is there a place I can see all registered usernames, and then I can pick something not taken?
    Also, I sent you (Brett) a Facebook message about the Twitter manager application
    I have some social media experience (from working a political campaign, and from school organizations) and ran a fraternity newsletter for two years. Not to mention work experience interfacing with customers online.

    I must have missed it, I will look and write you back.

    Dude the best way is to go to the member list and just search. At the top it's under Forum and then Community.

    Also noticed I updated your donation points in the VHL Life as well.

    UNBELIEVABLE, THEY BLOCKED MY ACCOUNT AGAIN!??!?!?!?!?!?!

    WHAT ARE WE DOING WRONG?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!? Why are we an illegal web site?!??!??!?!?\\\

    Motherfuckers. So now I guess I have to go back to GoFundMe and that's $600 lost for 6 months that we already earned. I'm so fucking upset right now I'm going to lose it.

    I'll just go to bed and deal with it tomorrow. I'm going to take all the links down for now.

    So basically they STOLE our money!!!!!!!!

    All right now that I'm calmed down. I've refunded EVERYONE'S money. Make sure you got it back.

    I'm going to set up the GoFundMe again and we will just go back to doing it the old way. I'm so sorry. Now we've lost a week too to try to get to this number. Man I'm so bummed, but let's see what we can.
