As some of you may have noticed, Terror Tortellini now has a new url. Thanks to a donation made by Krypto, we are now officially "terrortortellini.com".

I want to again thank everybody who has donated for their support and everybody who has supported this forum in other ways as well. You've all helped me make this site possible. I hope we get to enjoy it for a very long time.

Glad to help.

Ches: I like the tree. Certainly wouldn't want "drippy letters" font or something like Bogleech.

The tree has sort of grown on me too, but it doesn't change the fact that we're using a default template, which is kind of tacky, especially to newcomers. It's harder to be taken seriously when you're using what could be compared to the trial version of a website to congregate.

But I honestly have no ideas. Monolith's was nice, but copying our past is always a bad idea, and I know Vaughn loves to take any opportunity to remind us that we are NOT Monolith.

That is an excellent idea.

Ches: I did not realize that the banner was something from the stock images available from the host. You're right, we probably do need something to distinguish ourselves even if it's nothing but a B&W render of the same or a similar image.

The problem is, I can't do anything about the default template without buying Advanced hosting. Which is about 66 bucks a year and can't be bought with the upgrade points we get from people donating to the forum like I did with the domain name.

So while that contest would be nice, I wouldn't be able to do anything with the winning entry until I bought the Advanced hosting myself.

We could transfer money to you (through Paypal or whatever) or reimburse you in some way if you bought it?

I would definitely be willing to chip in on that.

is 66 bucks a year worth it to change a banner though?

Advanced hosting would mean we could change a lot more than just the banner. Advanced hosting means pretty much total control over everything.

Do you know enough about coding, etc., for that to be useful to you? Are there things other than changing the banner that you'd like to do that you can't do now?

I do not know enough about coding for that to be useful to me specifically, but I figured I'd either learn enough to know what I'm doing or somebody could help me. It would be worth it to have Advanced hosting, I think, but I don't have the money right now to get it.

If that's the case, I propose we do this by pledge on the board until everyone comes up with enough total $s to get to the $66 required. If/when that happens Vaughn can send his address (assuming he's OK w/ that) to all pledgers (or set up some kind of personal paypal, whatever he wants to do) and we can all send him the money.

In subsequent years we can do similar annual fundraisers to pay the hosting cost.

Vaughn/others want to do it that way, I'll go in for $10.00.
