Stepping up our Game

 

Somebody recently suggested to update our forum software, as we're were using a free template with limited options and several unfixable bugs. We've looked into it and have decided to do something about this! So far, the donations have solely been spent on the webhost and domain name to keep the forums online.

Invision Power Board (IPB) is a top of the range
and most commercially used forum software .
It's arguably the most advanced and stable forum
software on the market
.


Here's a list with a few IPB features to give you an idea: 
- Smoother User Experience
- Forum Chat Box
- Possiblity for Upvote threads!
- Easily Customisable
- Increased Security
- Spam and Phishing protection
- Language Packs for users
- Social network intergration
- Content tagging for easy searches
- Advanced forum search
- Will work on mobile phones very well
- Lots of other stuff we have not even thought of yet
 

There is much more yet to come! Other than the continuous costs to maintain the domain and webhosting, there's lots of plug-ins that can be (and have been) bought for further forum upgrades.

 

Forum Cost Management 

 

We are now using IPB, the licence costs $175. Fortunately, the donators have completely covered this investment!

In addition,  we're paying ~ $115/year  to maintain our beloved forums: 

~ $50 for the IPB services

~ $50 for the webhost

~ $15 for the website domain

 

If you wish to contribute and support, feel free to donate. Make sure you include your RSN and Forum name to the notes!
Even though we really can't thank you enough for your support, you will receive Donators Status on
TeamSpeak  & Forums!
 ($15+ donators receive a glowing name)

We need 175 dollars, but it doesn't matter much if you donate in euros. It just converts to dollars when we make the final purchase :)
