Yep I agree. It's a bit like cutting a few costs to fight the cost of living squeeze. If it ain't essential, cut

Not sure if everyone has seen this from Chucky

As discussed in the post here Camel and I are slowly beginning the process of handing over the admin of the site.

Of pressing urgency is the funding predicament we find ourselves in currently.

For nearly 20 years, we've relied on Google Ads to generate the funds required to host the site and contribute to player sponsorship. For a while now, income has dropped to virtually nil, and I have been personally funding the hosting fees since November 2022.

In order to keep this site operating, we need approximately $100 per month. At present the site is running on quite old software and we need to update the site before we can consider moving the site to another, possibly cheaper host.

Due to these ongoing funding issues we think it would be best to relinquish our player sponsorship of Kerryn Peterson, and unless we get any strong feedback to suggest otherwise, camel will be contacting the club to inform them of this decision by the end of this month.

In the interim, If you would like to contribute to the hosting fees, please consider depositing what you can to:

Account Name: Charles Mercieca
BSB: 083-437
Account Number: 87-376-0850

If you choose to leave your username in the reference field, I'll add you to a 2023 TC Sponsorship Group.

Thanks for your time.
I also sent some money

Can I get the specs of the server we currently run, and what load is it under.

Im happy to search for the alternatives, upgrade (Change?) the software and all that is needed here

G


I've supplied specs in the admin discussion a week or two back.

crap - sorry missed that. Ill have a look now

Hey guys. Apologies, I've just seen this. Are we chasing cash to keep the site afloat or are these payments for the sponsorship? Either way, let me know where and I'll chip in.

Is that including player sponsorship, or is that just hosting fees alone?


Just hosting costs, CK.

Sponsorship is around $2200, so that's almost $200/month on its own. And I think it's time to we stop, for now at least.

My apologies, it's taken a while to add all those who donated into the Sponsorship group.

I missed you early on Ck95 so sorry about that, and there was another donation on the 20/4 that I can't figure out who it was.

If that person wants their name in the group, can that person PM me please?

Thanks again for your help and support.

Is there a way of viewing the Sponsorship Group?
I'd like to confirm that the moolah I sent went into the right hands.
Go Blues!

Try this link: memberlist.php?mode=group&g=3335

You can also access it by going to your User Control Panel, then on the left hand side selecting Usergroups > 2023 TC Sponsorship Group.

I can add new members, but I think it's best to let chucky manage that so he can cross check the incoming funds with the posts made in this thread.

Thanks to all who have contributed already. :beer:

I've just added a few more people to that list.

There is one person who I haven't added as I'm not sure who it is. Payment was made on the 20/4 so if that was you, please let me know here or via PM.

Thanks everyone for your contributions. We have enough to keep us going for a year now.
