    It's a fact our owner takes a loss nearly every month so contribute if you can.

    There is about a $2000 nut every month and most month we fall short. If you can help us reach that please do. That include VIP and donations and a running total usually appears at the top of the page.

    I once ran and owned a very large car forum myself (about 80,000 members), and I too struggled to keep it running to the point that I sold it back in 2009 because I was incurring about $500 negative loss each month. That, mixed with the economy crash at the time, my job, etc. I had to let it go :(. As someone already pointed out, these kinds of pleas will generate an initial influx of cash, but then you're right back at it again next month.

    What does the $2,000 a month cost involve? Is it colo hosting costs? like a cage with some racks, internet connectivity, bandwidth costs, firewall costs, etc? I found that a managed hosted cloud option these days is probably a little cheaper, and typically runs smoother, as it they can make them elastic and grow, or shrink based on user demand.

    What I mean by that is that right now you are probably paying $2,000 to handle a max capacity at all times, but you may only need that max capacity on game day, so having an elastic cloud option allows you to pay for max capacity only when you need it. When traffic is low, resource demand shrinks, therefore your cost shrinks. Then during game the opposite happens. Things like IaaS, ITaaS, etc. are the best options in today's market. Just my .02

    Also, have you ever reached out to the actual Dolphins FO? Specifically the marketing teams as they normally have co-op dollars to spend each month. This forum does a lot for the Dolphins community. You could propose direct links to a merchandise store, game-day promos, marketing promos with in-person events, etc. You could get partial funding from their marketing teams to run the site, and in return you offer them ad-space, email campaigns, etc.

    Good evening brother. Please look around the site and see how many are on here on a daily basis, and how many have a Donated, Finheaven VIP, or Super Donator banner under there name. This needs to be a team effort rather than the same select group.

    Just tidied up the thread. If you want to complain about moves the fins are making, that is what FH is here for. But don't do it in this thread, you literally have the entire dolphins forum for that

    Why don't you give yourself a gift by keeping the doors open with a donation, VIP membership, or if you can afford it a super donation. Thanks for your time and your membership. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
