    thanks brain..

    so what you're saying is the more successful a website becomes the more it costs to run it.

    i would tell dargonking what i think but you would have to ban me pretty damn quick.

    Yes that is the basic idea.

    If it is just a site you want for your own reasons and don't think you will have many hits you could probably just use some free or cheap hosting site and maybe just pay a yearly fee.

    However with a large site like this it can get expensive with the software, software updates, hosting service, bandwidth and I forgot earlier you have to pay for your sites name on a yearly basis.

    So it can get pretty expensive.

    If it helps out, you can go ahead and turn on ads for zone supporters too; anything to make sure that this site stays up. I don't mind seeing ads, as long as they are not 'HGH for erectile dysfuntion'....

    Actually, I have been covering the costs for about 7 years now going back to the old sites :)

    And for the record, I will continue doing so even if no one donates :) Too much of a Cowboys fan to stop :D :D

    Are you still footing the bill for the old Mazevo site? It's still up and running, although probably disabled.

    Yes it was...

    It is laughable to see members going off on freedom of speech and the likes when they aren't even contributing to keep this site going...

    They certainly don't have to contribute... but it is ironic...

    Hey... I know Reality... I was just referring to CZ and our history here...

    Many here have no idea of the old days and the old site(s)...

    i didn't mind the ads much...but before i had them all blocked i saw at least two "racey" ads. one advertising sexy singles, and another about some gay something or other...for a site that pimps out their family friendliness so much, i don't see how this helps...and find it hypocritical.







    *edit - it was meet gay cowboys...[​IMG]

    There were some posts deleted here as to not fuel the fire...

    I am easily the most lenient mod here... but sometimes I don't get the content here in regards to "my rights"...

    I am the last person around here that would be described as overly sensitive...

    If you get a warning from me in your PM's... you can be sure you crossed the line...

    We don't control the rotation of ads... it is what it is...

    That doesn't make us hypocritical... they change frequently...

    If the ads are not family friendly, we want to know.

    As long as it remains a free site, put all the ads up you want.

    The real money is in girly ads but I suspect they wouldn't fit the theme of this forum.

    Well gays can be families and without sexy singles, there would be no continued population growth ;)

    I query though given the number of posts and posters wouldn't it be better bandwidthwise to delete every thread and post that is say more than 60 days old?

    I have a theory and as silly as it might be, it is that I will never pay to read or post anywhere on the internet. There are enough options that I won't do it.
