If we donate money, can we get the chance to change the name under the user ID.

Yes, you will get the truck icon (color determined on what amount donation you make) and you will be given the ability to have a custom title under your username.

Didn't give me the option to include my username when i made my donation, does this mean i get no Taco icon under my name nor a custom title? My user name is the same as my e-mail you'll be getting it from.

Please realize that it may take up to 24 hours for your icon and custom title privileges are set. It does not automatically set when you make the donation as we have to manually do this from the admin section.

Shannon the problem is that there is no where on paypal to input your TTORA user name. So you are going to get donations with no user names

Isn't there a place to put comments when you send a paypal payment?

We've got an e-mail sent to Bob making him aware of it so hopefully he will fix the problem. If not, we can use the e-mail address to find your username, that is if you use the same one here as you do with PayPal. If not, we will send you an e-mail through the one you use with PayPal and get your username.

Just a minor bug, so please bear with us!

It should ask you for your member name now. When I try to test it it says "you cannot donate to yourself" so I can't test it. The next donator can tell me. Or someone could always donate twice!

Couple questions?
Is it a yearly donation to keep the icon or a one time thing?
Different "perks" for different levels? ie. more storage space for higher levels
Estimated time for the switch?

Cheers. .....Steve

At this time we are mearly taking donations. Once we have the servers up and running and are able to offer the services mentioned there will actually be a yearly subscription fee (very inexpensive fee at that) for those wanting to use the new services we offer. The services you are receiving now will remain free. However, for those of you who donate to help get us there we will always give you recognition for that with the icon and also some free services to start out with.

Eventually, when we offer the services there will be different services offered for the different levels, ie more storage space, web hosting, ect...

We are hoping to have enough money donated to purchase the hardware within a months time and depending on how fast Bob can get it setup will be dependant on when we will launch these new services. I would say a conservative time frame would be within the next 2 months but maybe Bob will chime in with a more "actual" time.

So Shannon got the majority of the questions answered.

RE: the perks
I haven't come up with a good set of tiers to determine which level gets what amount of space yet. We will have quotas on your tacomaterritory.com mail space (it will have a webmail interface as well as IMAP and POP), your web space and the amount of bandwidth your web space uses. The more you pay, the more you can play. For those requesting it with a decent reason we can also provide shell access.

RE: time frame
If we continue to raise money at the rate we are (unlikely) we'll be ready to purchase the machines at the end of the week. That is very unlikely. Once the machines are in my hands I would imagine something on the order of 3-4 weeks before I'm ready to install the machines in the colo and an extra week after that for testing. The switchover will take on the order of 1-2 hours at which time the forum will be unavailable. This is likely to be starting at 1-2am pacific time.

I want to make sure everyone knows that there are a lot more people involved in setting this up than just myself and Shannon. Chris Gray (maverick) was the one with the balls (and lack of brains? :-P) to convince Shannon to pull the forum out of Delphi. He's also responsible for this fancy new design. Without that this colo stuff would still be a pipe dream of mine. Mike Ross being el presidente has also been very influential in convincing Shannon to do things my way. Not only that but he puts in more time and money to this club than anyone I've ever heard of (and I've been around for over 5 years now). Lots of good people around here donate a lot of hard work and time to make sure everyone has a great TTORA time.

Bump For a good cause. Even though I may not be in a Tacoma for much longer I will never stop participating in discussions or going to meet members and wheel with them when I can.

Actually, we are almost half way there. The latest tally Bob sent was $1935. There are several usernames that still need to be updated on the Contributors List and Bob said he will update it tonight.
