Posted: Mon Mar 15, 2021 11:15 am Post subject: Website Problems
We are reviving hundreds of spam applications a day again, I have checked and the captcha is still working so the spammers have found a way around it.
Our website program is 15 years old and needs to be upgraded to be a viable tool to keep up with the technology those that intend to interfere are using.
That is going to cost $2,000-5,000. Combine that with the dramatically increasing fees just to keep the website on the internet - at close to $600 a year now, I am considering closing the website down.
Other forums like the CJ3B have fallen to similar assaults over the last few years. All forums I have been on - Model A, mustangs, etc. are seeing dramatic decrease in traffic due to Facebook and twitter groups now being a big thing.
I am opening this up to anyone that wants to run the forum and take over, but Wes and I just don't have the time and money to keep it going.
Thanks to technology ever changing and spammers I really hate to do this.
I just noticed this post. Willysmjeeps.com got me off the ground as a former lurker and keeps my M38 project going...... hope you can find a path forward.
For ten years, without formal training, I ran the computer network and Tech Support at a large high school..... the "no time thing" was overwhelming until I selected several Super Geeks from my Teacher Assisting classes to do the nonsensitive parts of the job. The rules were simple, 1. "Everyone out there with those 400 computers must be happy all the time." 2. "Don't make me get out of this nice soft chair to fix Ms Breakdown's computer or set up some new tech toy." The Super Geeks loved it although they never agreed with the 'customer is always right' motto.....
Hang in there. You are appreciated. _________________ Don Alvarez
