I will say that your donations to this site will support this site. We purposely set up some checks and balances so that several people can keep an eye on the support income. To deploy and operate a site like this doesn't come without a price, but a very small amount from all of the active participants is all it takes. If more donations are taken in than actually needed to operate this site, your very capable Administrators will be challenged to give it back to the community, either in site improvements or other yet to be determined ways.huff said:I personally am excited about the new site and fresh perspectives.....One thing that really gets me going is that none of my numerous donations and money raising, ( radar detector proceeds) went to the old site. I will be more cautious in the future........Good Luck guys
If you scroll to the bottom of the main forum page and take a look at all the people logging in each day, you might notice the different colors. The different colors denote the levels of donations people have made to the site. As Randy stated, there are controls that have been put in place to make sure the dollars you donate go directly to the operation of the site. We invite you to click on the Donate link on the bottom of the page. Or, if you would rather take a wait and see approach, we completely respect and understand.huff said:I personally am excited about the new site and fresh perspectives.....One thing that really gets me going is that none of my numerous donations and money raising, ( radar detector proceeds) went to the old site.

We started feeling the "age" of the UBBThreads implementation about a year ago. While this platform was able to take us out of the days of chaos, hijacked usernames, and connection timeouts of the old Lotus Notes based system, it had also become dated and subject to attacks by hackers and script kiddies. After a long and detailed review of the available software, we chose vBulletin to move forward. Aside from offering the widest range of features, it is also the platform used by 3 of the 5 largest BMW communities.exRtguy said:I'm glad the site is here. The new look is great. And I see the old feeling of "community" that I enjoyed for several years on the old site beginning to warm up here too. I'm pleased that much of the old site is archived here. An invaluable source of information and experience. I'll be around here to watch this one grow too.
You're welcome. Far different place to be than the local one...glad you made it.Lucky88 said:I'm new to this site. Joined just about the same time I-BMW went away. Didn't know much about I-BMW either, so it made no difference to me.
From viewing some of the users sign in date, looks like this site started couple years back or so...
Anyway great place to be. Glad to be here and stay.
Thanks to Razel!
Razel, hope you get some referral brownie points
