A few questions ?

Recommended Posts

So just a few questions if the staff would not mind answering. If it is something you think I should not know or should be kept to the management of the site then tell me to kindly fuck off.

 

How does this site run ? I mean not the coding, and all of that stuff. Is this a place that sits on a server in someones basement, is it proxy ? I have always been curious.

 

Second how is this site funded ? How can I help ? What are the operating costs ? Really just want to know if prime subscriptions cover it or if donations to keep it up and running are necessary. If so, again, how do I help ?

 

That about sums it up, if it is private then just tell me it is none of your business and I am cool with it.

The actual owners can cover me on the details, but I believe we're part of the invisionfree family of boards, we pay them a monthly rate for the bandwidth and such and we keep our site happy and healthy.

I remember back when we were TheFootballPalace we were owned by some guy who kinda sucked and didn't care about the site.

 

When we moved, he made J&D the administrator there.

 

I don't have much of a point for this, that was just funny.

This place sits in the server farm of our hosting company. The software is through IPB. The hosting is done elsewhere.

F4E and I cover the costs.

:shrug:

That's classified.

Like ATL said, prime subscriptions no longer exist.
