Since the hosting fees are usage based, it's possible we're not covered yet. However, it's very early and several very generous fans have said the "check is in the mail", so I'm not certain where we stand just yet.

I feel like PBS... asking for pledges and donations.

I plan on keeping everyone informed as to the costs of this site so it's all very transparent. It will be interesting to see how the traffic surges as the season gets underway.

The more I use this new site the more I love it.

If you haven't already, definitely check out the links in the top corners for active topics and even better, Unread Posts.

I find that the Unread Posts feature makes it super easy to keep track of all the stuff I haven't read no matter where the post resides. If you click the little icon next to the unread post listing, it will take you directly down to the first unread post.

You could even bookmark the link for Unread Posts so you instantly see what's going on when you log in.

There is an option for a android/iOS/blackberry app called Tapatalk to enjoy the forum from a mobile device. I haven't had a chance to try it, but if anyone is interested, I can try to enable it and you can provide feedback on your experience.

Don't ask me. :lol:

I'm one of the 12 people in America to NOT own an iOS device. I think it costs $2.99 on Blackberry.

If anyone so chooses to purchase the app, that $ all goes to the app developer (in case that wasn't completely obvious).

It should work well with the forum, according to what I've read in the support area here.

Great job, definitely. I would suggest keeping an updated finances posting in the announcements section. I think alot of us are assuming enough contributions are coming in now but would be willing to contribute in the future when needed.
One complaint about the board is I guess you can only edit your posts for a short period of time, I always kept my recruit info threads updated but I guess that will all be on True Point now.

We had 70 users online just a few minutes ago. Keep in mind that kind of traffic was rarely seen on the old board over the past few seasons. The URI Men's Basketball Team has some serious buzz going amongst the fan base.

Our record for the old board was 88 on the day Jim Baron was fired, a massive news event. Prior to that, I think we hit about 70 simultaneous users during the Texas game when we were hanging around and Jamal Wilson was having a huge night.

The traffic is way up as many fans have become active again, we'll have to see what our usage stats look like when we get closer to the end of our first month here.

I will keep everyone up to date on monthly hits and hosting fees associated with the site.

So far, $55 has been generously donated via PayPal.com. Others have pledged to send money by mail, but it has yet to arrive. We're averaging around 5500 page loads a day, which would put us in the $29/month category. Remember, we only pay for what we use, so as the Summer approaches and we use the site less, it will cost less.

Update, received a $20 donation by mail and another $10 via PayPal today. Thank you to the generous members (they know who they are) who contributed!

Traffic is way up in anticipation of the new season. Many have mentioned a willingness to contribute, but I have only received the 3 previously mentioned paypal donations and this one today via mail.

Paypal donations are easy and can be done to my atptourfan@gmail.com paypal account.

Thanks to the 5 members who have donated and for those willing to also help out with our forum.

I'll do it soon, but yesterday, I contributed $50.00 to a vet in St. Louis, who is caring for 8 bulldogs. Some sick bastard broke into their home and set fire to them. Some are in grave condition.
I would like to get the assholes who did this, and do that to them.

Rod, you old softy. I applaud your commitment to the care and treatment of dogs and animals. I think Rod should get a pass for now, I'll donate to the forum, you donate to the care of animals. I can't stand the thought of pooches being harmed, dogs are such awesome gifts, anyone who harms one should pay severely, by means of the same harm being inflicted upon them.

RR, I've owned three Bulldogs, and despite their ugly looks, they are the sweetest dogs, with funny personalities.
The idea of anyone harming them, or any other animal, is repugnant.

Hi. I just signed up for this forum. I have visited the various Rhody message boards since the early days of the Projo board but this is my first post. That's because this is by far the best one and because these are once again exciting times for us long time Rhody basketball fans. I graduated in 1970 and have been living and working in SoCal (north San Diego County) for the last 25 years, although, I am now retired. I've been back to see friends and family in RI on many occasions during that time and makie the trip to Kingston to see the Rams whenever possible. I have even been to a few Rhody games when they have travelled out to this part of the country -- Tom Penders' team with Kenny Green vs. San Diego State; Al Skinner's team with Mike Brown vs. Arizona at Tuscon; and Jim Harrick's team with Lamar vs. Pepperdine and Sienna in Malibu. At the Pepperdine game, Magic Johnson was there to scout Lamar for the Lakers and he sat right in frront of me in the bleachers behind the Rhody bench with my knee in his back the whole time. During time outs, the players spent more time looking up at Magic than they did listening to Harrick. Anyway, I just wanted to add my thanks and congratulations to ATP and the rest for their efforts in setting up this new board. What a wonderful way for us out-of-staters to be able to follow Rhody -- especially now that Projo has (understandably) gone to a paid subscription format for it's internet site. Thanks again.

Received a very generous $60 donation by mail. It's great that there are so many fans in this community who are willing to help cover the operating costs. Traffic to the site continues to be brisk considering games have not yet started. It's great that we can have an ad-free forum to discuss Rhody Hoops from anywhere in the world.

Hi all,

Another fan jumping back on the bandwagon; I jumped off during the reign of Jerry D.

I was never able to register on the last board, but was somewhat active on the ProJo board (thought I'd use my UN from that board). I never bothered to resolve the technical difficulty with the last board as i never much bought into the Jim Baron reign enough to fully invest myself once again.

But the Hurley's hiring, this new board, and my moving closer to Kingston once again have been a sign ... so I look forward to reacquainting myself with Rhody hoops and catching some games live this year. I cut the cable cord years ago, so watching games on TV/online is an open question, hopefully the Cox streaming I've read about works well!!

I was a student working in the Athletic department when Cutino and Tyson were freshmen; I watched every game that year (and there-after) and enjoyed it as the promise of what was to come was exciting.

Same applies here ... except I won't get to see every game this year. But who knows, with a 4 and 2 year old boys, maybe season tickets are in my future.

ATP, the checks in the (paypal) mail. Thanks.
