Mike posted the IP above in this thread.

 

You can checkout something like this...

https://whatismyipaddress.com/blacklist-check

 

But you will soon realize there is alot more to it than a few clicks and checks.

 

You can do some digging with some of the basic stuff.  But like the SEO articles that are needed to get more into the 4th and very quickly 5th gen stuff, it is a huge uphill battle, its a process to do it all, then its even more of a process to do it right. This needs about 2 to 3 folks wiling to put some hours into decent content that will be available to new people on search, then once they are here they need to see the value of whats here and sign up.

 

Its going to have to be up to the membership to evolve the content, it can't be all on Mike and Nick.

 

Thats the key issue, out of the over 1k folks who visited recently only 16 subscribed sounded like that included existing members, thats not going to cut it unfortunately,  I was hoping to see around 100 subscribers pile on this new system, just based on the quoted numbers from past months, that 100 is a low % of folks passing thru, taking what they want and leaving.

 

My initial guess was this recent try would be a decent influx of subscribers from the existing base and some new ones, but if it was too much too fast your just going to see a huge drop in income 2 months from now. Since most of your subscribers are now loaded in to mid May.

 

The ideas proposed can not add work load on to the existing folks, so membership and content developement could be areas that are easier to assist in then back of the house server stuff.

 

Sponsorship material for raffles could do well, if folks have connections to some sort of maintenance kits, the injector raffle seemed to do well. But even those are short term fixes.

 

Anyone have access to a service like Constant Contact they could 3rd party the email blasts just to work around the IP issues for the time being. Or go get a quote then arrange a donation bucket outside of the M73M site for that email blast service for a few rounds. Like that example it cant be I come up with something and expect Mike to now carry that work load. No time and $ for him to do that. But it would work around the IP issues for a short term to try to get email blasts up and running.

Been there done that. How about all the email servers not checked? Like Microsoft is not checked. Govt servers are not checked, business servers are not checked. List goes on.

This is why anyone can write articles for any generation they want. Majority of this effort lays on me for the most part and has for years. I would hope others would take up the example and build articles too.

@Mopar1973Man how can I help with the IP and email issues? Please reach out to me. 

 

My thing is I attempt to shut down in 2012 last time it all fell on me and help wasn't there. I asked for 7 people including myself to be part of the up group to help lighten the load and spread the task out. All that is left right now is Just Nick and I everyone is gone. So every time there is an issue and I post up in the staff area the only one that responds is Nick. This doesn't leave me much. 

 

Admin - Myself and Nick

 

BoD's - Tfaoro, JAG1, Ibmobile, CSM (Tfaoro has been gone since the 4th gen purchase, JAG1 and IBmobile are gone traveling, CSM has been gone over a year).

 

Lead Mod - Cowboy (Been gone over a year)

 

Mod - Wild & Free (gone over a year) and AH64ID

 

So far I've spent the money on getting Quickbooks so one member could handle the books. He disappeared with the software and I ended up having to find a local lady will do my book in trade. Still gotta find out what my task of duty is for the year to keep her paid. 

 

Ok, I've asked another to help out by keeping Facebook fresh with new posting summer came and it tapered off. 

 

I would like to have to new moderators since the old ones are gone. 

 

Basically, since I can't pay myself or anyone else the chances of getting help that will stay around and continue to help is if I can pay them something.

@Mopar1973Man As many have stated, what can we do to help? 

 

I can do 2nd gen stuff! 

I can try moderating or something of the sort..

@syndicateshop has asked multiple times to help but I haven't seen you reply? 

 

I cant write code or do that type of stuff but I have a computer and can do some managing etc.

If you have HTML and Linux skills (possibly Linux PC) I'd love to invite people to help with the server. You would need to know terminal, cPanel and WHM. This is difficult to do with Windows PC but not impossible. 

 

Someone got bookkeeping skills. I'll buy another copy of QuickBooks and let some handle the bookkeeping.

It hard to say here yo go when 99% of the people don't understand Linux Operation systems. The server is what is known as LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) so if you not versed in Linux or have a Linux PC it makes it very difficult. Being that majory of all website you travel too are Linux based. Again it not impossible but Windows people can do this work but a lot of conversions and extra software is required for Windows owners comes at a price where Linux is included and comes for free. 

 

This is the problem so who is left that has Linux experience?

This is the interface for handling most of the server stuff. No graphical interface or mouse being used. You got to type just like DOS back in the day. This is why I'm running Ubuntu Linux 18.04 LTS right now.

and as for linux I have no experience other than a few months messing with it on an old pc about 5 years ago....  sorry and found it a PITA so went back to microcrap

Ok, so does anyone have SEO experience? If you do then you could start building all the 4th Gen articles. 

 

As for the blacklist problem you are going to need to understand Linux. To be able to help or make the calls. Like the last phone call the hosting company is trying to blame the support@ email address for the cause. I started laughing at the gal. She is not even on the same page. There are tricks we are using through Linux and PHP for the support@ address. First off there is no actual email server for that address and doesn't exist. Then on top, the email at that address picks up is converted into support ticket (like a forum post) in the backroom. So I had to teach the tech a little something because she didn't understand how that could be. 

 

I've got a full support ticket base in the backroom for handling one on one support. The only Nick and I that handle this right now.

Screenshot from 2019-05-19 09-17-57.png

 

I want to try to get people involved in handling the email to the site. Supporting people that don't want to post publicly. Not much happening here but...

We have so many features that could be used. 

 

Support ticket system either locally on the site or email. 

Store physical or virtual products could be sold. 

Download area for files could be shared or sold. 

Classified Area where stuff can be sold by the members. 

 

Moderators basic job is handling anything in the public view. 

 

Admins jobs have to do both public and backside work.  This includes management of the website, server(s), software, etc. 

 

Where I'm hung up, I understand all this stuff and second nature to me. How do I bring others into this role without any experience and knowledge and teach them on my limit time schedule? Like the majority of you can run with the moderator role being you'll never see the server. The time sink is handling the server and fixing errors as they occur. 

 

Like just checking this morning since I shut down the ElasticSearch service and flipped back to MySQL search functions the MySQL server needs to be reconfigured and fixed. This is because the data load of the ElasticSearch was dumped back on the MySQL server.

 

[!!] /var/lib/mysql/server.mopar1973man.com.err contains 144 error(s).

 

This is where I'll be burning mass time. Fixed the Activity Streamrepeat problem but now got to fix the MySQL server. 

 

So if someone knows SEO rules and could start building articles that would be awesome. That would be a start. Because without good SEO knowledge you'll never be able to do this. Look at where it ranks at...

and what does that consist of.....but  I may not be the person for doing this due to the time difference ????

 

Nick said there is content to be written ? can you send me something to look over, I can type and while I only have 2nd gen I am a fully trained diesel/car/plant/truck tech of 41 years I know the right way to do this stuff

More or less someone with skills in handling wider range years and models. People from time to time email there problems then post on the site. Basically give you permission and watch for Support tickets. Then respond just like a normal post. It will auto-magically create an email back to the person.

Yup. 

 

But here is the trick you can't just copy and paste it. You have to be able to write HTML code (HTML5 to be exact).

rubbish so how is that ? I had my own website up to 2009 selling Mopar Perf parts and I did the lot and It wasn't like the above and for a short time had my own forum, only ended in the 08/09 recession and I do excavators and dumptrucks much better

Ahhh... There is an extra button for the Admin side so you can view the post in HTML coding. This has to be kept to staff only being a hack could code a script to highjack any information he wanted and possibly gain access to the server.

 

So, to show your previous post.

All about the coding...

https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7451184?hl=en

 

Then Microcode...

https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/223074

 

It goes on and on. 

 

This is why M73M outranks both CF and TDR in some of the searches. I've invested mass amounts of time and effort into proper SEO coding and its paid off by placing M73M at the top of the list for searches. In the begining, I was helping Timbo APPS with his site because I stole his number 1 rank position from him. So I told him how to take it back over.

Look at the search I need to invest time into the articles again to boost the results again I use to be in second place but I've not updated the article in a long time. Now others with fresher timestamps take the lead and push us down a few ranks. Yeah there is a lot of work to be done. My time is very limited though.

Well @Mopar1973Man I haven't used Red Hat in 20 years, but I'll dive in and brush up. I have a friend who can help me figure out SEO. she did a phenomenal job with my website. I do understand that whatever work I put into the website would be purely voluntary. I'll do it to keep the site up and running. I would hate to loose this resource. I completely understand the burning out situation. I took a personal day myself and just stayed in bed. I haven't written anything in html5 but I'm gonna dive into that as well. Guess I'll spend some time digging!

Great we are on a CentOS 6 which is a Red Hat family. You have at least some experience.

Basically, in a nutshell, your code work should be clean. No excessive use of style scripts. The proper use of H1 and H2 header tags. Then keep your focus on keyword usage. Should be roughly 2% to 3% in volume of the article using keyword counter.

Thank you. I'll try to make it fair the best I can.

Like myself, I've just setup TampCamp on my PC to track the number of hours I'm putting into this website.

It's the same for the most part but some commands have been obsoleted. Like <center> tag is a obsolete tag. You have to use CSS3 script to center text now. Just doing a quick search for the tag you wish to use and then check if its HTML5 ready.

The biggest thing is to have people that I know are going to continue to keep doing a small task on a schedule. As long as all the tasks are being done then everything gets done and everything flows smoothly. It when everyone bails out and it rest solely on one person to keeping things going it gets crazy. Like I've got Nick trying to get me to write articles because SEO would benefit us better than me fighting the server. In the same token, I'm wanting to fix the email problem so I can get a bulk email going again. That way to get all members notified of new stuff, subscription, new server, etc. But if I'm busy on the phone fighting for the email issues then I can't be writing articles. Back to all resting on person and I'm just crawling forward.

Man I wish I could do that kinda stuff, I'd be all over it. I can write stuff, excel, basic computer skills I guess, but nothing like what you been posting. I wish it was simpler, get what you mean by being limited due to the complexity of this.

Actually, HTML5 coding is very simple Basically no different than typing this post now. The only difference is you have to tell the browser what everything is by tags. The only tags I use typically is <p> paragraph and <h1> header 1 and <h2> header 2. So since I didn't hit the enter key yet this would be a full paragraph according to HTML5 coding.

</p>

As you can see an example of HTML5 code copying the actual post. The funny part is the Linux Operating system is totally designed around software and web production. This stuff comes totally natural to me. Where in the Windows world you would end up using another program to actually write HTML which complicates the whole learning curve. Once I ditched Windows back in 2006 and switched to Linux this became very easy. I've been writing HTML and CSS code since 2004. 

 

You have to remember back in 2004 when it was www.frontiernet.net/~mopar1973man which was the first website I built it strictly on Microsoft Frontpage. Which now I know is junk. Then swapped to Adobe which was also high priced junk. 2007 Bought the domain mopar1973man.com and the was learning Linux back in 2006. Then total flip to raw HTML on Linux and never looked back.

 

Websites are not an easy thing to deal with. Then everyone wants to compare CF or TDR to M73M which you can't. When all the other websites now are corporate owned and under a billion dollar roof. It doesn't matter if the site is good or bad. As long as there money from the parent corporation. That why CF still exist with vBulletin 3.8 which was end of life way back. They can afford to hire code monkey to band-aid or fix the broken site to what they want. M73M it only me. I've got HTML and CSS skills but very basic PHP coding skills not nearly good enough to handle what CF code monkeys do. Knowing this secret has given me an edge to climb in the Google ranks.

 

Still in all what knowledge of SEO and HTML I've got I've been rocking the Google Ranks and kicking :moon:. The sad part is everyone wants me to keep the site free and pay me nothing. Now since my bladder cancer and trying to pay medical bills it been a battle to just survive. Right now the last two month I can for sure say we have been running in the red. The expenses are higher than the income. Then if I start trying to cut a paycheck for what I'm worth and my skills I would deplete the account rapidly. The donation system is no longer cutting it if only less than 2% are holding the site up. The only way to keep M73M going is everyone has to kick in a small amount per month. 

 

Now you toss in my knowledge and skills for the Cummins world and what I've managed to do with my own truck and others I've worked on. My knowledge should be worth something as well. So for all my efforts last month all I made was $20 days for 30 days of work. Really?!?! This is absolutely heartbreaking. 

 

Then when you toss in people that whine and complain on top of my already heavy workload it doesn't take me long before I snap. Yeah and rightfully so.  People that contribute absolutely nothing and whine. But do nothing to help support the site, reduce my workload or contribute funds. Yeah, I lose it rather quickly because of it is unfair and not right. I'm the one that sits on hold and the phone talking to hosting companies and deal with all the problems. There is so much I'm doing that most of you don't even see.

Mike would explain your "support ticket"?

 

Is this for tech problems I'm having on your site?

 

Or is this a way that I could get your help on my trucks problem one on one with you,  for a fee of course.

Yes. 

 

Support tickets can be done in two ways.

 

1. Email to support@mopar1973man.com automagically converted from email to a forum post and back to email in reply.

2. Using the Support option on the webpage.

 

Now, either way, the communication is done in the Admin backroom and only you vs the staff. Any Admin or BoD's can answer the support ticket. When you PM me its strictly one on one which I'm not really fond of. The Support Ticket system allows all staff to handle the request. If I'm missing in action then other staff can handle the request and no one is left hanging.

 

The only problem if I charge a fee the payment is made first and then I would support the ticket. If your request is something myself or staff can't handle that means we would have to do a refund of funds.

Mike,

 

I say sit back a little. let the site take care of itself and quit pushing thE steam roller thinking if you slack off it will roll back all over you. Believe me it won't. Spend no longer than an hour per day or an hour per week, but shoot me in the foot with 50 rounds, get your life back, step away for God's sake.... it is healthy bud. Good energy for life and happiness go hand in hand, are more important. Having fun again like the old days, joking around, lite hearted is what made this site shine. Your 'buck the trend' honesty and advice made this site shine above all others.

 

Let the site go so you have time and energy to work on  others rigs not burned out.

 

BTW, I'm not much of a guy to be on any Board of directors really. I'm at a point in life where if I cannot take care of my being happy and limit the stress level I automatically back away. It's a defense mechanism I found very important to my health.

Ok @Mopar1973Man apparently my HAXOR skills aren't what they were 20 yrs ago. I seem to remember that Red Hat was open source (free to download) but I can't find it. I have an older laptop that I am going to use so I don't have to partition a harddrive and make it play nice.  Feel free to call me me if you can help so we don't clog up the page. After hours is perfectly fine, I'm usually up until 11 or so. Thanks Mike and Nick for everything you do. I look forward to becoming more of an asset than just a pretty face........

I really can't. If I continue to cut a paycheck to pay my medical bills and other bills then I will deplete the account very quickly. Just figure all the bills, hosting, domain name, software, SSL certificate, phone, internet, etc. Then cut me a check for my efforts and let me put $200 on my medical bills. With a income that didn't make it last month, we are running in the red and it will not change unless someone steps up and steers the truck in a new direction. Once the money runs out... That's the end of M73M.com.

That would happen if it wasn't all riding on me again. I know Nick is busy with work and limited on what he can do here so I had to buck it up and get after the work since no one else is will to fix the server and software issues. 

 


 

So last night I finally took the time and called @syndicateshop and talked to him about helping out with the server. He's going to get his feet wet by firing up a laptop with CentOS Linux so he can refresh his memory of servers and Linux operations. This will be a plus. Taking part of the load off of me. I can then switch gears back to article writing. So thanks Will and we'll get you set up here really soon. 

 


 

@IBMobile you mention you can do the bookkeeping even but pencil and paper? is it possible if you can put it all to a spreadsheet like Excel or LibreCalc? At least showing the Income and sources and the expenses and where it's going. Then bring it back to the site for the entire BoD's can see this? That would take another load off me and have to work for trade for my current bookkeeper in Riggins.

The steam roller isn't the website but St. Lukes Hospital. 

 

Like I just sat down and paid $200 toward my every growing medical bill. I've managed to knock down the first surgery to $6,6xx.xx so far. Now my second surgery is now just making the billing department. Raw bill is $28,xxx.xx roughly speaking it's still got to pass through the billing dept and financial aid. Then you have to consider the 3rd surgery which I'm going to be doing sometime after June 8th. The bad news is this bill MUST be paid in full in 2 years! No exceptions. This means my payments are going to have to get larger income to make the 2-year deadline.

 

I do not have time to slack off. If I lose this battle I lose our home for both MoparMom and Me. Being I'm not capable right now to work any job till I get done with my 3rd surgery I've got no choice but to struggle and do the odd jobs I am doing but deal with the pain it creates.
