Default THE370Z Moves to The New Server + Tapatalk Integration + new Donate Button

First of all, I’d like to take this time and THANK each and every one of you for your patience during downtime yesterday. Without your patience and cooperation, this would not be possible. I'm very sorry for the long downtime but I wanted to get everything done at once and done right.

THE370Z has officially moved to a much faster and powerful server today. It was a process that started on Friday when I put the order in for the new server to be built. It was built and ready to go on Monday. We had a long downtime yesterday to move the data from old server to the new one. Now, I want you guys to check out all the sections of the forum and look for any dead links or errors etc. If you do see something out of the ordinary, please report it to me (or post in this thread). I am always here

I have had many members ask me for a mobile app or mobile skin for a long time. I was never a fan of one because I kept my site so simple; THE370Z actually is very easy to browse on iphone/ipad or any other mobile browser. But there were quite a few members who asked me if I would integrate one for them. I have always told them "when I move to the new server, I will." Well I kept my word. THE370Z is now integrated with mobile browsing app Tapatalk! It’s actually pretty cool mobile browser. It works with iphone/ipad/ipod , android, blackberry etc many mobile platforms (I’ll post some info below). I know it’ll make many members very happy. As long as you guys are happy, I’m happy

As I have already mentioned in this thread, I am NOT going to increase the pricing for the Premium Membership because I feel the price of $15 for Premium no Decal and $20 for Premium with decal are good pricing. Anything more, I may lose out on new Premium as people may think it’s too high . I don’t want my members to feel that way. So I’m going to keep the pricing same! No change whatsoever

I have also expressed that the pricing for the vendors will NOT go up as well even though this new server is about TWICE as expansive each month. Pricing for everything around us has gone up but my vendor pricing stayed the same since November 2008! The reason I’m not increasing the price is I want my members to have as many resources or vendors as possible. I want to welcome small vendors and want them to stay here. I want this forum to have all the resources you need to keep, maintain, mod your Nissan 370Z (or other Z models). Money was never the main focus, it’s always you guys. I can literally fill my forum with Ads and those crazy leeching links that turns into a video or what not, but I never did that. That’s not why the forum was created. This forum was created for YOU. This forum was created so that you can have an option or a place other than those Z forums filled with ads. This place was created for you to talk about Zs and other cars among other automotive enthusiasts without being hassled or ridiculed or personally attacked! This is your site so keep it clean and civil .

Since I’m not increasing the price of ANYTHING, I wanted you guys to have an option for donating. If you ever want to donate, even if you’re a regular member or premium or even a vendor, you can do so by using the Donate link at the top . If the forum has helped you in any way, you feel that you want to give something back, you are always welcome to use the Donate link at the top. It should come from the heart. I don’t’ have to force or have to ask for it . No pressure. Even if you don't donate anything, I will still like you .

Again, THANK you for being a part of this forum and watching/supporting this forum grow. Without your help and support this forum would NOT be where it is now. In November 2008, we had about 260 members. Now the number is almost 26,000 and one of the fastest growing Z forum on the internet. It’s all because of you. Without your presence or support, THE370Z is nothing but software . So THANK YOU

I didn't realize how often I went to this forum until each time I went to it yesterday i had a downtime message. +1 to AK for making sure my life is minimal outside of this computer..

on a serious note, thanks AK for all your hard work (and sacrifice financially I'm sure)

Thanks guys. I appreciate it.

@isamu, can you please take a screenshot? I haven't been able to see any.
@spohn, that's totally normal. It will be online soon for your iPhone . DNS just needs to be updated. I think as I was going to sleep last night, forum wasn't up on my iPhone. But this morning it did

The site seems to be working on my iPhone now. But it has fooled me twice today. Computers will drive you crazy.

Just made a donation myself. Expect more bi-weekly. Love you 370z.

Can I get my user name in red?

First thing I did when the forum got back online was hit the donate button! Props to AK for doing this. I think it will be a good way for people to make a contribution to a site they use and love.

...now EVERYBODY donate!

This may of been brought up but what about making this a pay site? I remember I was a prelude forum member and it started as a free site then went to pay.
