    ..........for if Steve cuts out the club forums. Would we be willing to pay for this privilege? Me, yes. A Yahoo email group as we had with PNWFS4X4 would be one option. Other ideas?

    I thought we were paying for it already? Only paying members can post in club forums. Where did you read this? I plan to object! /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif If Steve needs to cut bandwidth, it should be from the non-paying members not us! /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    I believe it was B. B Ray that sugested that on the grounds that the nor and so cal big dawgs had sites and the club forums could be axed.
    Well bully for them, if they want to volunteer that their lil forum be axed fine and dandy, but I thought it was out of line that he spoke for all of us that use these forums.
    After all it was the PNW folks that got the club forums rolling.
    I don't post much in the non 4x4 forum so I could care less if it went to member only.
    In fact I could care less if the whole site went that way.
    I paid my dues when I was flat as$ broke and out of work, and paid them again when I was hurtin for $$.
    And will continue to do so when the time comes again.
    If that is the way the site goes then I support any move that Steve makes.
    I will be very disapointed if he takes out the club forums though.
    While we are not a club anymore we are still in contact with each other through here and plan and go on wheelin trips.
    Which is what it is realy all about.

    I wouldn't mind paying a little extra to have our own forum. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I just hate to see cuts that affect paying members and not the non-paying members. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I think if we were to take our local "bandwidth" usage to a free service like yahoo we would be helping out the site. The only way I would want to do that is if a link from this page would send CK5 users to that place on the net so it isnt completely disconnected from the site.

    I dont want to see it go but taking small steps like this can help cut bandwidth usage if needed. I believe yahoo offers a free bbs in addition to the yahoogroups (email lists).
