    In the first 36 hours of fundraising we have raised $395 of $650 needed to start the planned upgrades for SF. For any that have not seen the other announcement ( here ) , we are looking for a new nn Java based chat that we can host on our own servers for less downtime and fewer issues in the chat room as a priority. This is made more critical because Google and Google Chrome are ending all support for Java in the near future and what is difficult now (using the chat room on many systems) will become impossible in the near future.

    For those using the forum primarily, we are looking at updating the Vbulluetin platform that has been in use for 11 years now. In addition to better aesthetics and more modern appearance, it should lend greater stability and allow for more options and possibilities for things like member blogs and helpful articles in the future, plus better search functions and greater security (as some have noticed we have gone to a secure server for SF already and are looking to further improve security features. It is less a situation of something “wrong” with SF as it has been, and more just keeping it up to date as 11 years is an eternity in the computer and internet world.

    Please take a moment to thank the donors that have already contributed and got us well over half way to our final goal of $650 for the updating. We run 100% on donations so that you do not have to put up with advertising and pop ups when you use SF. These extra upgrades simply exceeded what we get in donations each month from the handful of members that do generously contribute, which is why we have resorted to a fundraising drive for the first time ever. Your word of thanks and appreciation to the members and staff that do contribute each month is really appreciated.

    If any would like to help us successfully complete this fundraising goal any amount you can comfortably donate is appreciated- we need a total of $255 more – so whether it is $2/ $5 / or more, it all will help and be put to good use. You can choose to donate anonymously or in your name/member name as you like.
