  1. Thanks for your comments, I haven’t just used my time not being free as a reason. I’m not going to go into every single cost but here are a few to get you guys thinking. Hosting, in order to host something like this, it’s about £80 a month. The Forum software itsself just cost £600 and will require a renewal fee every 6 months which is over £100, Cloudflare, that’s £10 a month. To put that in context: Year 1: Hosting - £1080 Software - £700 Year 2: Hosting - £1080 Software - £100 This is super high level, gone are the days you can get money back through GoogleAds, Skimlinks etc and I’m guessing that’s why most Forums are failing and shutting down and why CCGB are looking to join forces. On overage the income on the forum has been £500 a year ish (30 ish paying members). Hope this helps people start to understand the need to make some changes to keep us going! Thanks
  2. Can anyone explain the issue in detail or try now. You should be able to upload photos?? You can post in the Forum Questions and Answers area
  3. Hello, Please do not post in this thread. This is an area for the New Forum only, You will need to be a member to post into the correct areas. I've moved your thread as a good will gesture. Thanks
  4. In regards to the Photo issue, can someone let me know if its still an issue and add a post (with examples) to the following area: https://the-corrado.net/forum/67-questions-and-answers/
  5. I look forward to your support guys 🙂 The subscription service is now live 🙂
  6. Hey Guys, I'm still knocking around, and today have been trialing a newer forum platform and trialing a migration. Once I am happy that its good enough to start on as a base, I'll read-only this and begin the real migration and transfer so there will be interuptions this week (hopefully it'll be more a you can see but can't interact). My short term plans are: 1. Read-only unless you are a member 2. Membership will be £15 a year 3. Wiki's will make a come back 4. I'm going to get some help in terms of moderators / admins 5. Considering working with CCGB - Need to reply to the owner 6. Tapatalk - I hate it, but I'll try to include it again and clean it up. Thats on day 1 anyway. I need a solid base with less issues before I start looking at new things!
  7. I’m here guys sorry. I’ve been thinking and will update everyone but my first priority is upgrading vbulletin. I have a call open with them as the upgrade doesn’t work! Once the forum is more secure I’ll get working on a read only with post rights for members and other changes to help keep the forum alive. Several people have issues with logins at the moment so we need to do this. Contact details below: Personal email: [email protected] (don’t use this for support enquiries) Support email: [email protected] I’m not planning on shutting this forum down!
  8. Thanks for all your comments, I will review them and try to answer some questions when I can. I like the idea or read-only (better than lock everyone out) For Sale (I have a bit of a plan of that) First things first though I need to get this forum updated to a more modern version. Thanks for your comments. I'll put together the plan and get back to you all.
  9. Hey all, So as we know the Forum has been neglected, its old but it has such great content and it would be such a shame for it to all go. The honest reason for the neglect is two fold, its costs money and time to keep something as big as this going, and over the years neither have been really available. Thankfully, I run a web hosting company and can swallow the costs of hosting. However, this can't continue forever, and the fact remains the forum runs on very old insecure software that needs time to upgrade. I owe it to you all to protect your data and not leave it insecure. On top of all this, there is so much material that I've seen on the servers that is not available... The wiki for example, with various how-to's With this in mind, I'm looking to make the forum a paid members only forum. I don't want this forum to end like Edition38 did. This is the only way that I can see it remaining, advertising and other means are no longer what they used to. The good news is: As a paying member, you have more of a say over: Can we get Tapatalk working Why doesn't X work My ideas: MOT / TAX Reminder Service Full Proper shop for 'Merchants' so they can sell things through the new platform Bring back the Wiki howto information in a readable format Active Corrado Register showing how many are left These are just a few ideas, but I'm really open to what people think.
  10. Wow, we are one of the last still running. I have no plans to shut it down, but do need to find a way to keep it running well.
  11. Alty, you can cancel it yourself in Paypal. The forum should of cancelled it on your behalf but looks like it hasn't. Any problems let me know.
  12. Is this still a problem? I think i've fixed it.
  13. This issue is now resolved in terms of the BBCode problem. See other thread about it. http://the-corrado.net/showthread.php?110175-Error-messages-when-following-links
  14. This issue has been resolved. It was due to an upgrade on the serverside. I've worked around this for now and once the forum is updated we can have later software. I'm going to write some updates on the forum and hopefully (stay tuned for the post) we can keep this alive. I'm also going to post a way of you guys to actually post support calls into me and my team (as I don't login to the forum often).
