Slowness & Donations

Recommended Posts

I'm sure you've all noticed by now that there has been some nasty lag now and then in the forums lately. We've been talking to the provider in hopes of them fixing the issue but it's starting to look like we might have to upgrade our plan or move elsewhere in order to get things back to a speed we can live with.

 

I don't like to beg for donations, but if anyone has been thinking about donating and has put it off, now would be a great time. It would help us to make a decision on what way to proceed to fix the problem.

 

If you're not in a situation to donate then consider taking a moment to click on the google ads or use the google search on the top of the page because we get money sent to us if they're used. For those rolling in the dough, just click on that handy PayPal logo up there. ^_^

 

In the meantime we're cleaning up the forum database a little bit in hopes of making a slight difference. Please be patient. Eventually things will be back to normal.

 

Oh, and those that have donated in the past, thank you so very much! Your thoughtfulness has made a big difference in keeping UnityHQ running. :D

how much do you get for the ad use?

 

What I mean is, if we click on the ads and the google link for 10 mins, are we going to gain you 10 cents or 10 dollars?

That I don't know exactly, I'll have to ask eliteone, she set it up for me. I'm fairly certain it's more like cents rather than dollars but it does add up and every little bit helps. :)

pennies per click usually.

 

 

But as Bella said it's better than nothing :angel:

I've moved us over to a new database server so you should see an improvement of the forum load times etc.

Thanks, Old Salt! I wasn't keeping track of anything, btw. I'm just glad there are generous people like you otherwise it'd be hard to keep things running now and then, especially since we blew most of our savings to celebrate our 20th anniversary by taking a cruise. The kids get to eat macaroni and cheese for a year now. lol!

Awww, thanks Trigger! Holy cow, I don't have a hugging smiley on the forums. I guess this will have to do then. :wedgie:
