To all,

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.

Ryan

I'll chip in financially to help out. Maybe set up a GoFundMe for the site? Annual contributions?
I'm just not a good one for technical assistance....

I would be happy to donate to upgrade to something more secure and user friendly.

I'd be lost without you guys.
Hate the thought of caving in to these wackjobs.
I just deleted what I really wanted to say.
On the way.

I can't send anywhere near the value I have gotten from this place but I am willing to chip in to keep us up and running.

I'll chip in too! It's time we all recognize the value of what we've been getting for free and preserve this wonderful resource. Let us know the particulars...
