    Intriguing! What sort of upgrades are we talking here, Rady?

    I think I'd quite like to take on the responsibility, but I'm one of the few posters that have been banned here on KO. I'll put my hand up, but would only take on the prestige if others were to consider it OK. I was thinking I'd have less time with a newborn on my hands, but I actually have more now that I've stopped going out thrice a week because the whiskey beckons.

    RunningJumper is still hands down the prototype for the gig, I'd say that if anyone else were to be voted in it'd be..........................well...........nobody really. Some worthy names would be SSj4wingzero, Oldtimer, KBlack25 and LJ4ptplay, but they're all rarely on here.

    I like the theme, but I'd definitely like to see something that'd outdo other competing sites. Don't know if CoolClyde would be keen, but he'd be a dude to talk to for sure. He's our resident artisté.

    Do we have any design boffins on board here?

    Let me know
    I'm old school on the payment front - cash, cash, cash and keep the receipt. So I very rarely make payments over the internet. I'll look in to it though. How much do you want? €100? I can throw you that, no worries.

    Well, if there's nothing against me being promoted to a mod I'd love to help this board improve and get more organized.

    I nominate myself as moderator on an interim basis. If you do not enjoy my wisdom, then no one loses.

    But we all have much to gain. Real Talk, gang.

    Honestly i haven't looked on the new features that come with the newer versions but i know security has been improved. I will look for a list and post it here though, i'm also curious what else is new besides adding tags to new threads.

    €100 is waay too much (was thinking to something like $5-10), and i already got one donation from Sage(?) - thanks man, that was nice - you're our first contributing member!

    You probably just received $10 from the Netherlands.

    Speaking of which, what would become available to me [if voted in] in terms of capabilities on the site? Probably a PM topic.


    Who wouldn't? Jpz doesn't post here anymore
    He rarely ever did anyways. lol, JPZ.

    Oh.....OK. Ummmmmmmm how much do you need to make the site as best as possible, is supposedly the right question to ask here.

    In a more in depth sense, how far are you willing to go to make the site better, and how much will it cost? I'd like to know the ins and outs about what the limits are within reason, and the limits of what we can achieve as a site monetarily and what contributions we'd need from designers and web geeks etc.

    Interesting stuff, no?

    Yah that was me. I didn't really know what a good amount to put in was (I think I ended up sending $30), but if you get an idea of how much the place costs to run a year, plus any extra things you wanna do, (and hey you gotta have a little spending money!), I'm sure we can find a way to entice people to donate.

    for my favorite sports team. check yo paypal.

    one thing tho... after I checked in to paypal, my browser continually takes me

    paypal.ro? are you sure it's not paypal.com/ro ? As long as it's on the paypal.com domain, what follows after / doesn't matter, you're alright. There's no way however for the button from the bottom of the site to take you on a phishing site. And about the romanian mafia don't worry, my buddy from Anonymous was arrested yesterday so we're a safe country again!

    Cheers and thanks for the donation!
