The future of PNE-Online (Please Read)

Hello All,

As promised when I took over the forum on your behalf I advised I would keep you informed of behind the scenes stuff as and when so here we are.

As you will have seen I had planned to migrate the forum over to a new server this weekend with new hosts.

Sadly it now appears that due to the sheer size and age of our database they are unable to provide what I believe I had signed up for over the next twelve months. I am currently in dispute with them to try and get out of the contract but this seems unlikely.

However, not moving servers/hosts was not an option in order to keep the site on-line moving forward as we approach 2.5 million posts and ever increasing usage. Therefore I have purchased a great package with a professional hosting company which has rave reviews.

The new sever is top class and will allow for further forum developments as we move forward, for etc hosting of images on the forum, more add ons, and features etc.

I hope to introduce more privileges for patrons as promised when we changed software.

To go alongside this and to safeguard the long term future of PNE-Online I have now acquired all the relevant domain names. ie, .net. .com.

Due to the success of the new forum software I have extended the licence going forward.

Also I am fully committed to keeping PNE-Online ADD FREE - Regardless of how many times a certain bookmakers email me.......

All this has come at a significant cost therefore I would just like to add a little note.

Without our brilliant patrons the forum would not be here and I thank you for your continued support, you really are The Gentry.

If you would like to become a patron and keep us online, you can do so from as little as £5.50 a year you can do so below.

You can do so using our secure debit/credit card facility Stripe or via Paypal.

Good to hear that you tell the bookmakers to sling their hook. Pity the club doesn’t. It is amazing to me that some of the most regular posters are not contributors. I echo the comments about appreciating all the work you do, thank you.

The forum is a fantastic place. Thank you.
People never understand what does on behind the scenes. Including me.
Please remember that we talk about real people, and despite our frustration sometimes we need to monitor our tone and language.
How would we feel to be publically vilified.

We are all here to see PNE grow and deveope, through highs and lows.

for those wondering whether they should contribute, JK is a family man with a young family. Like I said earlier its one thing taking for granted the work thats put in but us as users should also ensure that hes not left out of pocket.

Far better than seeing bloody betting sites plastered all over the forum.

Credit where it's due and I'm happy to do my part by becoming a patron. £5.50 a year isn't much, after all.

As long as there's a voice for us fans, that's what's important.

Thanks for taking the forum on and sorting out from the mess it had lapsed into JK. Keep up the good work, if only everything in life was as good value for money as PNE Online is.

How do you get Stripe rather than Pay Pal (which I don’t do) ?
Stripe are just a company that process debit/credit card payments (I think) you don't need to sign up to anything.

Just click the "become a forum patron" button and choose to pay by card.

Easy peasy. You've now joined the cool lads.

Agree entirely. I have to admit it riles me a bit when prolific posters don’t donate - I know it shouldn’t but I can’t help it!
