Hey folks,

We had 11 years of pretty much solid up-time enjoying the service provided here. So if you get an opportunity, let TJ know right here in this thread.

Thanks TJ for keeping the lights on.

Props TJ. Been awhile since I "paid rent". Don't have a pay pal anymore. What's the next best way to donate? Got a po box for a check?

Thanks guys! I appreciate the sentiment! It's nice to get a thread like this now and again - especially after the kind of week that I've been having. It's been a great run - plenty of bumps along the way, but plenty of smooth sailing as well. All-in-all, I think we've done ok.

We're going to have a few changes coming up in the May/June time line that I've been working on getting in place for the 2012 season. Mostly these changes will involve adding a couple of new moderators, as well as a fresh set of forum guidelines to help keep order.

Also, for those who have asked about donating to the site, it would be a big help right now - we break about even with our server fees through Google Ad Sense, but I'm hoping to do some maintenance this summer to fix some bugs we have. One of the best things that you can do to support the site is to keep your ad blocker off for this site, and be open minded about the ads you see. But aside from that, I can take paypal donations here: Click to Donate (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=editor%40orangemane%2ecom&item_name=OrangeMane%2ecom&no_shipping=2&no_note=1&tax=0&currency_code=USD&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF&charset=UTF%2d8)

Unfortunately, I don't have a PO box at this time, and due to recent personal threats from certain posters who have been on the aggressive ban list, I'm not comfortable with giving my address out (there are certain posters who I have longstanding relationships with that I would obviously feel ok with).

I really appreciate the sentiment, support, and brotherhood here, and intend to keep things up and running for some time to come! :)

Go Broncos!

That was a cake walk compared to the McDaniels era. I can't even begin to express how happy I am to be through that ring of fire.

Don't worry TJ the week should end up great for all of us. At least after draft.

Keep up the great work!

adding a couple of new moderators

I humbly accept your offer. Actually, I would make a terrible moderator. You're supposed to ban people you don't agree with right?

Turned adblock off for this site.

edit: Oh and thanks TJ, I'm on this site every day. My girlfriend calls it the 'get off that orange Broncos page thing and come to bed'.

Thank you to Taco John and all the moderators who help run the site. Thank you to my fellow posters, who enrich my life with all their crazy.

Do you guys think that when we are elderly we will still be on the Mane?

I can see Rev and BroncoCaliJohn in their 70s smacking canes at eachother still. :)

Taco I lurked from 03-05 (or whenever you forced registration) and from 05 onwards posted sporadically until 2 or 3 years ago. My day is honestly better having the mane to track and talk about my passion. I love being able to connect with other hardcore Broncos fans. I love this site. Thank you man. Oh and thanks for putting up with me.

I lurked for quite a while, too. Actually, I still do a lot more reading than posting.:wave: However, this is one of few sites that I can't go a day without checking at least several times. Thanks, Tacos el Johannes!!!

Oh, and I turned off the adblocker too.
