Moving TFPC to greener pastures
Permalink Closed


OK gang time to put out a call to the community for help. I've been thinking about moving the site to a server that can handle our new and upcoming higher member count/traffic volume. There are some major changes coming & I need someone who either knows where to find a good server/host for our site that can make the additions & changes I'm planning OR someone who can build our new home from scratch and design it the way WE want.

This is a big job I know. None of the positions/mod slots are paid positions, but as compensation I'll be happy to let the person who takes on this job pick any pen that my new company, Savage Pens, makes.

(mods, keep your eyes on the savage offerings, you guys get to pick one to. Thanks for all of your help so far!)

SO, who wants to volunteer for this massive undertaking?

Anyone?

You know I'm willing to help any way I can!

Anyone know of any good forum hosting services?
(we are not looking for Invision Power Board)
Do not want to look like the others! smile.gif

I did submit a couple of suggestions to DWL based on web search criteria!

Thanks again for those links Frank. The only problem I have is I dont know what makes for a good site.

I cant find the links I had saved. Can you post them here for everyone to look over & evaluate.

I'd like everyone's opinion & input. This is OUR community.

Here are those links-

www.bigbluehost.com/forumhosting.htm

www.phpbbserver.com

www.bulletinboards.com


They are all hosting sites (similar to Activeboard). Ibelieve they are all low cost- @ $8-10 per month like here. They all have a chat feature, and there can be multiple mods/admins.

If you go with a free service, then you have pesky pop-up ads, or ads showing up on the page! no

I've always liked the ph boards---simple, basic, et cetera.

And phb 3.x seems both reliable and stable.

I'm out the door here in a few for the daily errands & later this afternoon my production meeting. I'll take a few minutes & crack off a quickie site there and see what it looks like behind the scenes.
