How much are you guys paying for your host right now? What are the specs?

I'll try to find a better host, with probably better specs for the same price....

Heya,

I'm willing to look into paying for hosting in exchange for some credit (but no banners etc). Drop me a line if you're interested.

Cheers,

Oh, now really, one banner ain't gonna kill anyone.


I agree with govinda. as long as there is no banner farm, few decent banners are not going to be that bad. we cannot feed our hunger simply with love, we need money too. banners are the only reliable way to get dependable financial support. being purist is great but we can be practical without compromising the value of the forum.

But then I can't taunt the COW defenders with the fact that a place like this exists every time they try to say that all forums have advertisers and bend to the will of the advertisers. Of course having a banner or two doesn't mean you go into the same ethical bucket as a lindenbloom, but the conspiracy theorists and paranoids at the COW will interpret banners as a vote of support for how they do things.

I'm willing to donate to avoid banners as I'm sure many of us are - let us know when and where.

Not here. elsewhere - Like General Specialist, etc.

I decided lately that the next time i post on the cow will be the moment that the first page i'm seeing is not an advertisement of any kind.
Tough luck that they pop an ad to everyone who wasn't active for some time first thing ;)

Hey, I’m newbie to this forum as far as posting goes but its proved to be one of the best sources of inspiration and tuition for all things mo graph related. I've got some DV hosting that I don't really use for anything major. I'd be happy to 'donate' some bandwidth and storage it if it meant that mograph kept going. Just let me know. I'm sure some of the regular posters wouldn't mind chipping in as admin and watching the forums, as I’m sure they already do. [anyone?]
It would be a massive loss to see it go, or combine in any way with CC.

dunno if things got worked out already but my 2 cents, sponsorship and/or donations would be ideal. if that doesn't work then i don't mind a non-intrusive banner or two like motionographer. should watch out for the whole slippery slope thing, the Cow and it's columns of banners just grosses me out now.

Just as an update, as far as I know, nobody's decided anything, and nobody's talking about anything. So it' limbo, and while it is a little silly, until someone comes along and can commit and has the tools to make it work, it's a nice pink limbo with friendly smartasses and the occasional meaty piece of info you can't get anywhere else.

There are no bad keyframes, only misunderstood keyframes.

HELL YES!
Here's what I want to see in said calendar...
Govinda in a thong
Clint in a nascar nightie
Sao in cut off jeans and a sequined Mograph Pink™ tube top
Fred in his tiger striped bra and panty set (riding the metro)
Tread making his "face" wearing nothing but roller skates
And Gray Machine (aka Mr. September) wearing a mini skirt and a Detroit Red wings tank top in black patent stilletos.

what can I say...I'm kinky. ;)
Does anyone really read these signatures?

And on the back of the mini skirt, it will say "wiggle".

I am willing to host and maintain the site if you need. I have plenty of experience with php forum engines. I would not start placing up ads or anything like that. Here is a site I am currently working on, which of course, would no longer be existent if I were to maintain Mograph.
