    • https://www.paypal.com/pools/c/8GP8N13TcT It's that time of year again! Ad Astra needs help to stay afloat and keep housing great Star Trek Fanfiction! Below are the breakdown of costs: Server Hosting: $170/month * 12 = $2,040 Mail Hosting (beginning June) : $72/month * 12 = $864 Forums Hosting: $45/month * 12 = $540 Domain Renewals: $13/year * 4 domains = $52 TOTAL: $3,460 per year Our free Google Workspace is going away and they'll begin charging us for services in June 2022.  We're looking for free options, but it seems that everyone is charging and it's per user.  The sign of the times, unfortunately. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.  We greatly appreciate it! MDg  
    • When we upgraded IPB to the latest, it altered all of the rank image dimensions from rectangular to square, so all of them looked all smooshed. I've just gone through and added all of them in their proper sizes and I think they look a lot better.  If you run into any issues, please let me know! MDg
    • Over the course of the last year, Invision hosting has been forcing certain changes to the software that required us to upgrade our hosting plan, which more than doubled the monthly cost (from $20 to $45).  I've tried to stave off the need to do this, and I know everyone LOVES this forum software because it's so adaptable and has a lot of features.  We got to the point where the latest version requires SSL certificates and so moving up to the cheapest plan that offers SSL support was now required (they don't even offer the tier we were originally at anymore). Thanks to several people's donations ( @SLWalker  @TemplarSora ) we were able to push the upgrade through and pay for at least four months of forum hosting.  A full year costs 540USD, and we have a PayPal fund for those costs.  Ordinarily, I shoulder the costs personally, but I got laid off last month (July), and so I'm strapped for money at the moment.  I'm working hard trying to find a new job, but you know how that goes.  The main archive costs are 150 a month for the Archive web server and an email server to send out all the mails. In total, we need about 2,340USD for an annual cost to keep all the servers/hosting up and running.  If you'd like to help, the link for donations is at: https://paypal.me/jetblack Thank you for any assistance you can offer. MDg Edit: I forgot to mention that there are some graphics issues moving to this new version, so things like ranks will be odd-looking. I'm working on a long-term solution for this so please stand by.
    • Forums: Now running 4.6.5.1 Blogs: Hard down for now, we've been focusing on the forums. Archive: SQL errors still persist for some, we're looking into other archiving options since it's possible the software may not longer be fully compatible with the database version (eFiction is abandonware at this point).
