@Mopar1973Man just hoping if I can steer 100 people to the site, maybe 5 of them join, and maybe 10 others recommend the site to others. At the very least help your ad revenue. The link may disappear to the Netherworld, but I can cut and paste links like a champ.

That the weird part I do not block links back to CF but sure enough CF will block anything to M73M.com truly sad. That breaks the SEO chain. Not to mention the fact of people on CF are blocked from go

Only way I could pull something like what you asking is a point system economy. In other words you make points for certain actions. Currently don't have the software for such but could add it later be

Yep it's all on the fly stuff on FB.  Everything is transient and temporary.  But that's okay, if we get to come over and if they find it useful they will be hooked and stay for the ride.

There is more but those thing could be discussed later on down the road. 


I’m on several paid forums For various things and the one thing that have never cared for is the lack of financial transparency. It brings a lot of distrust out. If your gonna require payment you have to be transparency people are more likely to give if they can see where their money goes

 

I hope some of these structures help or give rise to even better solutions to the financial burden that you are under.

Currently all the addons are hooked to the forum. 

 

Example if you create a post in the classified area in the 2nd Gen 24V for a part your looking for it will automagically create a forum post for you. Now you can interact on the forum about your classified ad. Same goes for a lot of functions like creating a new article it will create a forum post automagically and allow every one to discuss your article. 

 

Best I can do right now till I have time to catagorize the expense better I need time... These are current numbers.

As for expenses the only personal that has bee add to the site helping me in thin times in my hospital bill. Which is a mere $400 a month and be totally honest I've manage to get it down to $13,5xx.xx as of yesterday. Yuo also got to remember there is part sales, my wrench, and other incomes invoice from the backend.

Like another reason why I'm building around the website. Now if I'm out in the field I can text @Wet Vette and she can generate a invoice for the customer and I don't have to race home 30 or 60 miles and print the invoice drive back to the job site and then pull out my debit card reader for my phone. Too much BS. She generates the invoice, email is sent to the customer and I'm heading home and I'll be paid in mere few hours to the website. Then I some time leave it all there to help the site or peel off the labor part for my own personal bills. @leety is now been workin on the back end as well and she is now catching on to why this works so well and allows any staff member ot handle the site now with out needing me.

That would have to be a addon software being the current software doesn't provide those function currently. There is a point system economy that allows to make point and spend points. Like you could reward a user with writing article giving points. Then if he's post to the forum in cost him points. Anyway the idea is a balance give and take. But this could stem into a moderator issue. In other words in the past I've use such system and say you need 5 articles to do another action so a user will smack the keyboard for full gibberish for 5 articles and wait for the reward. Back in the early years. This means we would have to turn on moderation which mean one of the moderator would have to read and check the posts to verify it good then allow or disallow. More work for me or staff.

 

My old donation software from 4 year ago was that way allowing to rank the donor. BUT!!!! I was told by many including staff this information should not be displayed. Hence why I got rid of that software. Not to mention back then in was only 0.7% out of the total membership that donated while the other 99.3% took as much as they wanted.

 

I'm trying to make it equal for EVERYONE. This means EVERYONE pitches in EQUAL amount. Not the 1% that holds the system up while the 99% raid and run like the past. Not fair to the one that donate... $10 bucks to any Cummins owner is chicken feed. Heck when I see people spending $2,000 a turbos and injectors. Seriously I'm providing that info for peoples designs and what every 1% I get possibly paid for my knowledge? How is that fair for me? How is that fair for the 1% that just donated and got raided from all the free members walking in for hand out? How do you make it balanced where the site gets paid, myself getting a paycheck for once, and everyone equally pitches in? If there is a free anything 99% will head for that open hole like a hungry mouse. :bolt:

 

So in what your asking is for every hundredth job I do I get paid, but I work FREE for the 99 other people that come to my shop/web site. I would have to just quit from lack of income, stress, etc. I can't work for free any longer.

As this is a big mis interpretation of what I was trying to say I’m quoting this first. When I said make everything financial available to the members I was purely speaking of members donations. Not towards the business you run not at all as I say I am only speaking towards the funds funneled through donation is all.

I can help with those things and be happy to do it if you would like. You just need a couple of guys to help you get this site to what you want it to be. It’s seems like your drowning trying to juggle this site being in the black instead of the red and trying to run a buisness and your personal life man that’s an impossible task. I’m getting laid off today so I have a lot of time and  Resources I can and will donate to this. 
all of the things I posted were only suggestions that’s all I know me personally I just don’t want to see this site go by the wayside because of trying to provide an impossible service and an incredible monetary loss.

As for that if the members don’t want it then then it shouldn’t. I was speaking for my personal preference. It’s the same reason I like open source software it’s transparent all the way to the source code. 
you know what’s in it. Doesn’t have to be monthly could do quarterly charts where memebership can see hell yeah my 100 buck I donated on top of my membership went to server upkeep.

or site maintenance what have you. Once it becomes profitable again you can even take the extra funds to do give aways where you funnel the black donation funds to your buisness to buy items from yourself to give back to the memebers who donated with a drawing i.e.  $10 gets you 5 chances 25 gets you gets you 10 chances $50gets you 50 chances for ever 100 dollars you get 150 chance (can be done with a live screen showing on a random name generator.)

I agree man I do if you woulda had the service manual for sale instead of free I woulda bought it but what’s 50 bucks as opposed to taking my truck to dodge and dropping 500 for them to tell me what’s wrong and another $150hr to work on it.

dont make it 3 tier make it 2, free and Paid.

free let’s you browse. But no tech or how to articles. No posting no messaging.

subscriptions to keep people mostly honest could come out of a reoccurring or credit card charge no cards that aren’t linked to a bank account PayPal Charge at a monthly rate for a minimum of a year or pay upfront for a year with a %off for paying a year at a time .

I personally wouldn’t blink an eye at 19.99 a month for this site for $220 a for a year. If after that year I don’t want it well screw it I’ll forget about it and never have to worry about it again. 

 

One last addition the numbers are purely conjecture you can make them w.e you want. I’m not saying make them 10$ Or x amount off or short yourself at all. The discounts are a merely  marketing tool. Everyone wants to feel like they are getting a deal, they see x amount off they are more inclined to purchase that extra thing. Buy one how to at 50 dollars and I can get that $100 one for another 50 I’m spending $100 on top of a membership premium membership that I just put 320 dollars towards the site. If you get 18 people a year to do that your red numbers turn into black numbers. 

 

My apologies for the confusion I should have been a little more clear that those numbers where just that numbers. I was nearly throwing them out there for context.

I know one member here just got banned from CF by trying to be helpful. 

Not only banned but deleted entirely. And I just tried to post a link to a coolant change article over there.  When I pasted it in my reply it clearly pasted the exact link, but when I posted it the https// moparman was changed to https//cummins forum and led to a coolant article for 4BT's. I couldn't change it either. They clearly don't like us trying to refer people over here. Bunch of horses asses :rolleyes:

Not to mention the fact of people on CF are blocked from good information now. Truthfully I got tired long ago of having to prove myself every step of the way. 

 

On the brighter side this why I spend $360 a year on the software. Our software is alway up to date and secure!

https://invisioncommunity.com/release-notes/

 

New released update I can install today!

 

Software is all up to date... Now I know this is not released YET... It's in beta test stages with the software company but there will be a soon a mobile app for the site for both iDevices and Androids. I've know about this since the 4.5.0 release. Since it not functioning properly I've not released the app name or anything till the company does a full release too.

Another great find but our server is out of date. Till I can get updated this HTTP 3.0 is out of reach for me.

  • HTTP 1.1 (Obsolete...)
  • HTTP 2.0 (Currently using)
  • HTTP 3.0 (Chrome and Google are ready!)

The new protocol will make the site quicker. As you can see here... h3-q050 protocol.

 I'm assuming that's all good? Lol I'm techno-tarded sorry. 

 I see the tip jar has grown though, glad to see we're all kicking in what we can afford, should help with the upgrades?

 Hopefully we can increase membership as well. I have went through a short lay-off again so waiting for the cash flow to resume but when things level out again I will probably purchase one or two of the smaller decals to help advertise for the site. Hope it will at least draw in a few to see what we all have to offer here.
