Hi All,

It was almost 11 years ago that the GT4DC ceased charging for access to our forum, and for the last few years I have been personally funding the webhosting for the Club. In the past this wasn’t a problem for me and I was happy to pay to keep the community and the knowledge resource going.

Like many of us the last year has given me cause to re-evaluate things from lots of angles including financial and basically, I can no longer continue to fund the site on my own.

The site costs £30 including VAT per month to run, what I am asking is for anyone who is interested in keeping the site going as a technical resource to consider donating just a couple of pounds here and there to help alleviate the cost. I would be most grateful to anyone that can assist.

I have setup a PayPal account, donations@gt4dc.co.uk to use for anyone who is able to make a donation.

All the best,

Mike

Many thanks Mike.
Just to add that the other staff members are still around! As treasurer I feel I should provide a small update.

The club has had the same £135 in the club bank account since 2014 without any transactions. Due to lack of use the bank account for the GT4DC has been closed and the funds have been used toward the hosting costs (kindly provided by Mike for a number of years). As such we no longer have "club money".

Mike I have made a £100 personal donation toward site hosting costs.

Granted, I don't visit many forums much these days (other than Retro Rides as that is still going strong), but that's only because people have gravitated to FB for their car group discussions.
However, I've literally just come back here to look for ECU issue information and even though forums are "old tech" I found what I wanted within seconds!

Payday tomorrow - I'll chuck a couple $ your way :D

We had a discussion about this at the last Rallyday and I remember saying that it's not fair for it to fall on just one person.and I was happy to contribute.

I don't do paypal, is it possible to PM some bank details so I can do a bacs ?
