Exclamation Sixth Army Group maintenance fund

Fellow sixth scale WWII enthusiasts,

I have setup a PayPal money pool to raise funds to cover community costs.

https://paypal.me/pools/c/85zyuDPrmE

You have the option of making the donation anonymous when you donate, or not.
People can go to the pool and see current progress towards our goals.
People can also contact me to send funds by personal check or other means if PayPal is not an option for them.

Since the board P.M. system is not reliable to some feel free to contact me through email at sixthvanguard-AT-gmail.com ( replace "-AT-" with the @ sign )

Pool details:
This pool is for the maintenance costs for www.sixtharmygroup.com. Current yearly costs to maintain the community website are approximately $720 for both hosting and domain name registration.

If we fail to raise $720 then the online community will close at the end of July. Any funds raised will be refunded at that time.
If we raise $1,200 then we will attempt to upgrade the board to the latest version of the board software. If the upgrade is not achievable then the remaining funds will be put to another years' worth of hosting.
If we raise more than the $1,200 the extra amount will be used for yearly costs until expended.

The board staff appreciates the offers of support and hope we can keep this going.

I hope that if we meet the $1,200 that the upgrade will allow us to upload pictures again.

Re: Sixth Army Group maintenance fund

I went out to your maintenance fund site today, to make a small donation...WOW. Some impressive donations, and just as impressive is the number of people that care enough about this board that they're willing to chip in monetarily. It should warm the heart of those running the board to see that their efforts are really appreciated.
Well, you've raised enough thus far to upgrade and keep it open and I'm sure additional funds will keep coming in.
The next issue was the initial observation that post counts and activity had fallen off, which made you wonder if there was enough interest in continuing to warrant the expense and effort. I saw a lot of names on that donation list, you've already expended the effort on the Facebook page. What we need now is a plan to leverage the social media (facebook) page with an eye towards luring in fresh blood and breathing new life into this site we obviously care so much for!

Re: Sixth Army Group maintenance fund

Done!
Iíve visited this board since itís inception, sometimes to post, but usually as a lurker. Iíve always enjoyed the build threads, the custom figures and the breadth of knowledge of the posters. I have a heavily customized foa tiger 1 waiting to be painted(sitting over 10 years), a scratch built m4a4 with customized parts waiting to be completed, and other projects that havenít left their boxes. This board continues to keep those projects in the back of my mind in hopes that someday Iíll get to them. I continue to visit this board daily, and canít imagine it closing.

While my sum is later getting in, hope it goes to making the upgrades a reality. Have been here since to start, right after DX 05. Still have Sixth Div and OSW accounts. Allen

Re: Sixth Army Group maintenance fund

Thanks for all the support guys

The board is paid up on hosting and I will be looking at options to upgrade the board software over the next few weeks. Things are very hectic in 1:1 world right now. End of Summer / beginning Autumn are the busiest times for my profession. I hope to have an upgrade in place by end of the year.

Glad to see the brilliant work the members have done over the years continue to have a home to inspire future enthusiasts as well as us old-timers
