• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.
  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

#ProudDad back again!
George wanted to create and publish a magazine and needed £1,500 to
get it done. He created a kickstarter to try and raise the funds, he reached the target pretty quickly and with about 3 days to go has nearly £8K pledged .
Looks like there are people out there who likes what he is doing! I thought it was just me and his Mum:D

You've got an entrepreneurial young lad there ArkRoyal ArkRoyal and good on him for raising his own funds rather than relying on bank of mum and dad!
I'd never even heard of kickstarter. So if they needed £1500 for the project what happens to the extra 9k... dads management fees? :whistle:

Hi D djb38
He needed £1500 to print 100 copies of the first issue, which was the smallest print run he could get.
Basically backers are supporting the project by paying for their copies in advance of them being published.
The advantage for George is that he can get a better deal on the larger quantities that he now needs to print and therefore will be able to produce more copies which will allow him to distribute them to photo galleries and the like which could then interest advertisers.

The deal with kickstarter is that they take a fee from the amounts pledge, about 8% the rest will go to George to create the product. If he does not deliver to the backers the promised 'rewards' he can be banned from using kickstarter in the future.
