We need your help!
Hey Everyone,

This forum is growing and growing and we admins have been talking with our moderators a bit especially concerning the few outages we had. Art suggested that we move the forum to a colocation company to garantee up time and also get the bandwidth we need (we're already running 1.5Gb per month at the moment over Arts private line).

We dont want this forum to become a site that members need to pay for or a site that relies on sponsering (we want to keep our independence) so we are thinking of some alternative income. Something that is fun to our members aswell.

One of the things we are exploring is stickers. The other that we thought of today we need YOUR help for.

We want to make a 2005 calendar! And we have just over a month to do soSmile

What we want from you guys is to go out, wash and polish your car, find the most beautiful spot you can find to park your car, and make some great hi-res photos and send them to me and art (please send hi-res versions or they wont be printed very nicely). Please dont sent us nice pictures you found on the net as we'll get into copyright problems, we need originals from you guys with the permission to use themSmile

We'll put the calender together and get a couple printed and then sell them at a small profit to fund this forum (and buy beer.. owh wait, I dont drink beer.. awell..Smile). We'll be using this thread to post previews so you guys get to give input on what the calender should look like.

Owh and on a side note. If someone has a 2U computer case with powersupply left over he/she wants to donate, we need one of those aswellSmile

*BUMP*

Common people, I have got a number of "Good idea" reactions, but no pictures yet! We only have a month or so to get this thing done, go take out your cameras!

I think I'm going to do a little photoshoot @ kinderdijk one of these days (the place with all them windmill thingies). Nice and stereotypical location in the netherlands. Shame there arent any tulips and people with wooden shoes over there (the way a LOT of people seem to think about holland). It's only 30 minutes driving away from here at most and I have never been there before.

Just go to a flower shop and buy lots of tulips and some wooden shoes! Thumbs up! :wink:

Looking forward to them pics!
