  VIP Member Upgrades!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 07-21-2016, 08:41 AM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

Just a reminder to all the new members and seasoned forum veterans...we have VIP Member Upgrades available for small donations! These upgrades get you extra upload space for photos and files, extra PM storage space so you don't have to delete your messages as often and a new profile badge so everyone knows that you help support the forums as well as the Mustang hobby! You can also request a custom made signature banner at no charge!! Packages start at just $25! All VIP ranks are lifetime memberships with no reoccurring fees!

If you decide to go become a Benefactor, you get unlimited upload space and PM storage! It's the perfect plan for an avid forum user!

Your donations help to cover the increasing costs of quality forum hosting, domain fee's and the endless cost of back ups and security patches! We are hosted on a dedicated server maintained at a high level data center and prices are not cheap. But we are able to maintain a 99.9% uptime number with excellent speed and that is what I demand for this forum! There are cheaper servers out there but you get what you pay for!

In the past, we were able to cover a decent percent of the fees with donations and VIP upgrades but other sources like Facebook and Instagram are really taking a toll on forum usage as well as donations. We are in NO DANGER of downgrading servers or closing the doors, but as always, I just wanted to remind everyone that I really appreciate every dollar generously donated and I am often humbled by the amount of support we get here! Donations just help to take some of the burden off of my shoulders.

At the end of the day, I am just happy to be able to provide a great place for Mustang fans to hang out, get important information and to talk about 71-73 Mustangs!

If anyone wants to go for a VIP upgrade or Site Supporter upgrade...here is the donation page address:

Thanks and keep those 'Stangs Rolling!!

  Just a note about donations and membership
Posted by: rocketfoot - 04-28-2016, 09:38 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (1)

Hello everyone! I just wanted to drop a note here about forum membership, donations and VIP Accounts. Some of you became offended by the recent removal of the edit button. We originally removed it from the general membership but not to make it a perk for VIP members...it was just the easiest way to control access due to the larger amount of general members and was never considered to become a perk for VIP members.

The main problem with the edit button is that anyone can go back and edit out important information from their own posts which affects the forum's archives and thread continuity. We like to think of this forum as an archive of information that will help 71-73 Mustang fans for years to come...but when information can be deleted by someone that had a bad day or was offended by something, it is hard to replace! However, we also see the need for the edit button so members can fix typos, update info and much, much more.

After much discussion, the staff has agreed to replace the edit button for all members but we would like to ask that you don't delete any useful information about 71-73 Mustangs that you may have posted and continue to post detailed info that will help us to continue to build the world's best online 71-73 Mustang Resource!!

These website pages will be available at no cost for generations to come and we will never be a paid site! VIP memberships are available for those that wish to help support the forums and several small perks are offered to donators, but primary forum functions will always be available to members at no cost!! We certainly appreciate ALL donations and encourage everyone to become a VIP member but it is purely optional.

If you would like to become a VIP Member, be sure to visit our donation page at the link below but again, it is completely optional! Donations are used to help support the server and hosting costs as well as domain fees and software maintenance.

Thanks you to everyone reading this post - regular members and VIP's alike! You guys are the ones that really make this a great site and a world class 71-73 Mustang resource!! Bravo Thankyouyellow


Keys Announcement - New Administrator
Posted by: Don65Stang - 04-25-2016, 09:35 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (23)

For the past year or so Eric (Mister 4x4) has been active behind the forum's driver seat turning the wheel and adjusting the radio station as an Administrator. He brings a wealth of SQL programming knowledge to the team that has translated into tweaks to make the forum run better for all of us. Today we thank Eric for his efforts and publicly/officially announce a job well done!

Please join Barry, the 7173 staff and myself in congratulating Eric on his new job assignment as an Admin (and his forthcoming fair share of answering complaint mail from the rest of the members, hehe).

Bravo Thankyouyellow and Congratz

Keep up the great work!
