    That's great. I got the echeque email alert. Not a problem. All donations are very helpful and I now nearly have the full amount to cover the complete forum server cost for the next two years, plus the cost of vBulletin updates for the next year. Great stuff.

    Thanks everyone

    From the main classicamiga.com homepage there is a donate button on the right hand side of the page. Or you can donate directly via Paypal to my email address dave@classicamiga.com Both methods use that account.

    And thanks for the donation Tiago.

    Fund raiding time again.

    vBulletin 4 is about to be launched. With version 4 they are changing their licensing structure. At the moment with out current vB license we hold an owned license which means we are allowed to host and run a vBulletin site forever without needing to pay any more money. However each 12 months you have to pay an additional smalll fee, currently about 30, to receive a further 12 months worth of updates to vB.

    Now though there will be no 12 monthly fees to continue receiving updates. Instead it will be a one-time payment for vB4.x to receive all updates within the 4.x lifetime of the produce, which is great.

    However for existing vB customers this means that the licenses need to be upgraded to a full vB4 license. This is going to be quite an expensive upgrade cost of about $250 for the new license. However until 30th October the vBulletin team are offering a special promotional upgrade price of just $130 (85) for us to upgrade the classicamiga license to the new vB4 Publishing Suite.

    The publishing suite adds a full CMS (content management system) and community blogs to the forum software. The CMS is looking especially powerful and could be very useful for classicamiga. It works on an article system very similar to Joomla, and it would be great to move some of the current stuff out of the main Joomla site, and into this new CMS. Things like news could work better, as could articles and tutorials.

    The great thing about the CMS is that anyone posting a normal forum thread can have it promoted into a CMS article, therefore made into a full webpage. And dedicated forum threads can be created and linked to specific articles in the CMS, so members can discuss an article in the forum. Much nicer than just having comments under articles.

    I might even think the CMS could be a better direction instead of the current Wiki as it would allow more people to work on its content easier. However, that is something to look at once we get our hands on vB3 Publishing suite.

    So now to the fund raising bit. If any of you can help me out towards the cost of this vB license upgrade to vB4 Publishing Suite which will cost a total of 85 that would be great.

    We only have until the 30th October, so just over a week, to take up this offer, otherwise te cost will go up to $250 which is quite a bit more.

    All donations to help with this would be greatly received.

    And in upgrading the site to vB4 I have many ideas to get the activity on the site increasing again and making it much more active.
