If everyone paid a small fee I'm sure it would.

Honestly, I doubt it. I recall BBEngineer saying he would have to bump up to the next hosting package (not a sustainable option) to get the search running as it used to.

the cost to operate the site will double if we have to go to the next hosting plan, we are already operating well into the red.

I don't understand how the whole hosting / website operation works...

are there things we could remove to alleviate the hosting costs?

Things like threads that are image heavy, old threads in the anything goes section, members garages, etc?

BBE would have to explain all that. I dont understand it much either. I know he has been working on ways to help, not sure how far he got.

I'm sure the garage eats a good bit of bandwidth. Is ImpalaHQ hosted on this account as well? How much does it use? I have about 80GB of unused bandwidth if any help is wanted.

It's not a bandwidth issue... it's a resource utilization issue

The only way to get back to the old search is to go up to a more expensive hosting package.

Unfortunately, the economics don't support making that shift...

Has anyone thought about a monthly subscription system? $x/mo to get early access to NAIOA/BBE shop sales, discounts, a special board, free drugs, special member group, etc?

Or maybe start fresh and round up a posse to move old important information over.

I second that. $5 or $10 a month for those of us who live here wouldn't hurt anyone's pocket against the value of knowledge we receive.
(I may not post much, but yes, i'm here too Laughing )

we talked about a paid premium membership and may go that route. We talked about increased PM's, special section, discounts on products, etc.

We dont know how much interest this would have.

Our last 12 months of NAIOA Shop sales and donations has been horrible. As a whole, last years sales/donations just about equals an average month of sales/donations from years prior.

If it wasnt for our great sponsors, we'd be really hurting. So I ask that you help return that support by making your purchases through them whenever possible.

I'd join even if it didn't offer anything.. only hitch is I'd only be able to do a monthly thing as I don't work much during the school year.

Have you thought about moving hosts or switching message board software?

I see a lot of small websites out there with forums that have all the proper search features enabled. I don't know what they pay but they arent big corporations or anything, just fan websites for radio shows and such.
