Default Orange Mane Server drive

Kick in if you want to. Don't feel like you have to. I'm hoping to raise the better part of $1000 for the server and a license upgrade to vBulletin 4.0. The server comes first, the license upgrade comes second.

I've got a lot of ideas in the works, but the recession has dug into me as much as it's dug into you out there, which has meant a focus on the basics.

I appreciate the support and patronage of everybody here. We're moving into our tenth year of Internet existence - which is like 100 in web site years (or some such cliche). It's been a real honor and privilege to be a sort of shepherd on a sort of Internet oasis. The whole concept blows me away every time I spend any thought on it. I've practically lived Denver Broncos football for 365 days a year, along with an entire group of people doing the same thing - connecting to our love of the Broncos through each other and our daily discussions. It's an amazing thing to me.

I take criticism for being too loose with "the trolls." But contrast is what makes a discussion a discussion. And my goal as a moderator and admin of this site is to allow the greatest amount of contrast while allowing the greatest amount of constructivity. The problem that I find that I face is that "constructivity" is a subjective measure. And precedent is a b****.

So I do the best I can to stay true to myself and what I think is best for the entity The Orange Mane, which includes both the present and future community that we have here.

Anyway, I probably said more than I should or needed to. I don't mean to bore anybody. I hope that if you find any value in the site, and have the credits to spare, you might think to kick in a few bucks.

Here's to the next decade! Go Broncos!

Sorry Buff. Didn't mean to step on your toes. A moment of inspiration struck me when reading up on vBulletin 4.0, and then I remembered the server bill was due this month and thought I might as well create a thread.

Slipped you a lil somthin' somthin', and as posted above there's more where that came from if BF7 disappears. I don't care whether you ban him or not, I just want him to disappear

Taco is right on. You don't ban anyone unless they are over the line offensive or threatening.

Marketplace Of Ideas. If you don't understand the concept then I suggest you read up on it. It's what makes freedom of speech special.

I will kick in a tad for sure. Thank's for giving us a place to vent TACO.

I think Taco knows we were just messing about cutthemdown. It was in reference to his post. And my bad behaviour of late.

lemme ask you this...I don't want to sign up for paypal, but is that cc form pretty secure? (I don't really buy things online too often, so pardon my noobish line of questioning)
