  • Raffle for two $75 gift certificates from www.newenough.com

    I decided to start a thread that would be used for all raffle information. As many of you know New Enough has very generously created a program that allows its customers to donate a dollar to any group of their choice during checkout. This comes at only a cost to New Enough - not to their customers. Since enrolling in this program the forums have generated a little over $150.00 in New Enough cash through donations from them.

    After discussing with members and scoping the poll results members who donate $25 will be entered into the raffles for a chance to win New Enough gift certificates as well as other perks as we change hosts and software. (image hosting, more PM storage etc etc.)

    You can paypal your donation to davidweis@gmail.com and as I receive donations I will keep a list of users who have donated up to date in this thread.
    Thank you to everyone for the support and for making www.hawkgtforum.com an incredible community. Also, thanks to New Enough for the very kind donations. Next time you guys go to buy something motorcycle related I hope you check them first, they are definitely worthy of your business.

      ahah yea, I just dont know when yet. I figure when donations slow down to next to nothing I will put up a deadline date and see what kind of feedback I get..
      We're close to what we need, but not quite there.

            Money sent. Thanks for doing this I'm sure it's going to be great.

              Soon!! I bought vbulletin 2 days ago and tonite I am hoping to get a practice export working from a back up I made of the forums. After I get that working I will get everything setup how we want it and do the real deal.
              I have been investigating hosting and I talked to my buddy who is letting us leach off him. (our current host)
              He is gave us a lot more bandwidth and space to try out vbulletin. He said he doesnt mind if I pay him month to month, so if we have any problems with the host when we're on the new forum we can leave without taking a financial hit or service going down for a long period of time etc etc.
              We were using about 6.3 gigs of bandwidth a month and had 7 or 8 available and had 300 megs of server space. We were using about 120 megs of space or so. Now we have 35 gigs of bandwidth we can use 1300 megs of space. I figure that will do us while we get everything situated and get vbulletin running. After its running I will start monitoring server logs and see how shitty our hosting is,or if most problems were stemming from phpbb.
              Hopefully this should work out well. I will keep everyone, especially the mods/admins posted.

                              Ok..are we about ready to shut this down so I can give away a couple of gift certs or what?
                              Everyone is damn generous!!! I will keep adding things as I get everything figured out. It looks like most of the kinks are getting worked out and now its time to figure out some chat software and figure out photo hosting.
                              Does anyone have checks in the mail or anything that I need to be aware of?
