PostPosted: Tue Jul 22, 2008 3:44 pm 
Gentlemen (Eeeeerrr....Yankees too),
I come to ya'll this evening to find out what you have to say about funding the website that Notso still has for the club. The subscription runs out in September I believe....The yearly bill is either $258 and some change or $278 and some change (off the top of my head).....I am willing to donate some but not all of the money....Notso has funded the site by himself for many years....He is no longer a club member as everyone knows.....Further, he is disabled, and out of work....Financial strain on him is no longer conscienable to ask. Basicly I am asking if there are any of you willing to pitch in and help (Pleadge some financial support)....Kindly let me know if so....If not, or if other arrangements have been made, please let me know that also, so that we make sure that not one bit of stored info is lost.....The object here is for the good of all involved....Feedback is appreciated (unless of course if it is nasty demeaning and otherwise offensive......lol).
Regards,
Hank

The fees for this site seem excessive, to me. Perhaps another web site would be better to use. I am positive that HOSTING is available for less than one half the $250.00+ for the site you mention.

Hosting sites with MYSQL support and other support can be gotten for around $120.00 per year.

Any of the sites can, usually, be moved to another HOST.

Also, I think the people that actually use the site should be the ones that are solicited to pay for it and they should be contacted for any donations, as not every club member uses or has reason to use the site.

Ernie,
I am sorry you choose to disapprove of this (I absolutely knew you would given your history), but since you choose to do so, why don't you put up some concrete actionable suggestions, (As in, do the reasearch and get the sites moved)and not simply be destructive to this effort. In other words, "I'd be willing to host the site and do the work Notso did" would be very constructive, or even part of that....rather than simply tearing down this effort. My motive is to try to preserve something of value to the club. If you wish to spearhead the effort, feel free. I will thank you in the same manner you always did Notso for his efforts.

The people that USE the sites should be asked to foot the bill, excessive as it is.

I have no desire to contribute to a site I do not use, nor should any other club member.

These are concrete suggestions. Find a HOST site that doesn't charge excessive fees.

All anyone has to do is to do a search for HOSTING sites and go from there.

Has anyone priced out GoDaddy? By comparison I pay peanuts for AoA's
site.

I will be one of the contiributors....just let me know who is sorting it out etc.

As for hosting the site on an less expensive host, that is being looked into.
I do know however that not all of the capabilitys that are available on the ACWGC.org package are available elsewhere....or to get the same capabilities you end up paying extra...ending up with another expensive package with all the headache of moving all the sites that have been put on acwgc.org.

Lets keep acwgc.org going while we see what else can be achieved on other hosts...I have two other hosts myself and some sites can work fine on those. However my sites have limitations that restrict the functions of the web sites that we have come to accept as normal and easilly implimented on acwgc.org.

That is a more reasonable and thoughtful approach than was originally stated.

Thanks, Ed.
