  • Board Upgrade 2019!

    I was hoping to hold off until the Christmas break but apparently there's a security issue with the version of vBulletin that we're running which will require me to upgrade to the latest version of the software sooner rather than later.

    I hope to get the upgrade completed in the next few days, and will try to keep the upgrade activity (and board downtime) to between the hours of midnight and 6 am CDT.

    Since the software upgrade is a not insignificant cost, and since this endeavor is pretty drastically non-profit to begin with, and since I rather enjoy being married to my current spouse:

    My Better Half suggests that those of you with more money than sense (although she put it quite a bit nicer than that) might want to go hit the PayPal button that's over there on the left side of the ol' blog page:

    http://sdsufans.com

    Apparently, according to Filbertwife, there's a box you can check on PayPal to indicate that it's a "friends" payment and if you check that PayPal won't take their usual cut of the transaction.

    (Yeah, I'm not real good at this self-promotion thing.)

      You are better off to log-into pay-pal and send this to friends and family. your link on the homepage does not do that (I don't think).

        To be honest, I have no idea, I don't really use PayPal all that much. Apparently it's an option on the iOS app.

          Will the new version of this board have a roof on it, sell beer, and only show the full side? If so, I'm all in.

          For real though, how much you need? You put a goal out there and I'm guessing we reach it in no time.

            I like this Goal Idea. I would think at least a dollar a Day or maybe a couple dollars for each registered user(#'s wise that is) Thanks Phil.

                So your saying you pretty much covered the cost of the whole thing eh? Just kidding but seriously.

                    Well, the (surprise!) upgrade is $350 or so. The ongoing operating costs are . . . er . . . "I was told there would be no math!!!"

                      Wow, that's more than I thought. However, if the people that use this site consistently pitch in $20 or $30, it will be covered fairly quickly. I'm in.

                      Before I do this... do you want me to use the donate button on the left side of sdsufans.com? Or does paypal take a cut that way? If so, let us know how you want us to do it. There's no box to check. If paypal takes a cut out of the donate option, the best way would be to provide the address you want the money sent to, and have people just log into their paypal account, hit 'send money', put in the email address, then choose 'send to someone you trust', which is the "sending to a friend" option. They won't take fees that way.

                          I'll PM you the Address that hitting the Donate now button yields.
                          I'm not sure but I do think that anything BUT send to friends/Family incurs cost.
