Dear members,

It doesn't feel that long since our last disruption, however looking back it was already 6 months ago.

In the coming 2-3 weeks I will be at best doing a major version upgrade and at worst doing this and also looking for more cost effective hosting at the same time.

I'm hopeful that we will remain ad free and that for the most part there will be minimal interruption to service :grin:

Or some sort of hardcore membership badge people can pay for? (like the old Tyge sponsorship badge)

I have a few options under consideration but thank you for the suggestions.

I think given the age of the car and the fact there's never been an elite membership level..pretty much rules out introducing it at a time when the numbers of Puma left on the road are reducing at a rapid rate. Not to mention there'd need to be some form of incentive above just having the badge.

We do have the existing sponsors that cover a majority of costs but the renewal system hasn't been overly reliable or enforced over the years.

As I say, we've always been ad and banner free and that's how I intend on keeping things going forward. More nervous about moving to yet another major version and having yet more potential issues arise after not long getting us back on a good footing.

I may decide to keep the hosting as it is and do the upgrade first followed by the move just to keep things little more straight forward.
