Our website hosting bill is up for renewal next month, and once again, we are not at the desired funding level to proceed with our site hosting costs. While we do make some ad revenue, ad revenue has been dropping across the internet. Companies aren't willing to pay for online ads like they used to. People are more likely to go to facebook and ask for an answer instead of searching for it through forums like this one, thus reducing our ad revenue due to decreasing views.

We have upgraded our hosting capabilities a few times in the past years, resulting in 99.9%+ website uptime (which I'm quite proud of). We have also recently upgraded the www. side of offroadtb to finally get both sites under a unified theme.

The issue is that currently we are $212 under-budget for the upcoming annual hosting bill (yes, good reliable hosting is surprisingly expensive! $486/yr).

So, I'm asking for your help in funding our site. If you think that our site is worth supporting and can spare a few bucks, please follow the link below to our paypal donation page. If not, no big deal.



If you would like to write a solid article for the www. side of the site, contact me or Mason. Adding good content is also a great way to support this site.

Alternatively, I still have a few decals left (found here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2995). The purchase of the decals also includes a small donation for the site.

Your help and support is much appreciated by the whole team, myself especially. :thumleft:

Got the shipment notice, Thanks!

Also may have a little more donation money after I pay for all my lights. They were cheaper than I was expecting.
