A few months ago there were 462 users online! At least the search engines are indexing everything. LOL.

During the regular season we should definitely see in increase in membership. The average is 30,000 unique visitors monthly to the web site during the regular season. Which isn't too bad considering I just upgraded to a paid host and purchased the SF domain last year. We should see a steady rise in unique visitors next season though.

Now, the bad news. During the offseason the web site only receives 10,000 unique visitors monthly. So, that explains the lack of new membership. :(

I should start an advertising campaign. I have a lot of great ideas to bring in more members, but not a lot of money! I spent the money earned from SF to purchase this forum, have contests, and to renew the hosting plan.

I hate asking for donations. But, if anybody has a few extra bucks to spare to help donate for this expensive endeavor it would be greatly appreciated. I would create a paypal account for easy transactions. Let me know your thoughts and what you would want out of it.

adding donations as part of a forum can be a touchy subject.. many feel that forums should be free and they should not have to pay for info and they feel insulted to be asked to give money. others will freely donate no questions asked becuz they believe in the site and want to help out. And sometimes people wanna ask where the money goes and how its being spent. I was part of a forum that allowed donations, but wasnt required of course. then 1 day somebody asked to see where the funds went too, and the site was run terribly to begin with and it ended up causing a total collapse and end to the site.

That being said, I will donate what I can to help out the site. I may not be all that much, but I'll give what I can.

As long as members dont feel obligated to do so, or the members that do give dont feel like they are more important than the ones that don't, we'd be ok.

Just my .02

The SF Forums will always be FREE! In no way should any current or future member feel obligated to donate. All money received through donations will go directly back into keeping the SF Forums active and growing. For the skeptical, proof will be provided. You'll see your donation at work. So donate with confidence! And as always, nobody will be "above the law".

How about a Steelers Fever T-shirt, all proceed go to keep the forum up and running. I`ve looked at shirts for my own club, and it would be easy to turn a descent profit quickly. I think you could get some of us interested, Just a thought. i LOOKED AT SOME PLACES THAT WANT ON AVERAGE $6.50 a shirt, thats a white shirt with black print, additional colors little ex. Sell for $15 plus ship. You can`t but a nice Steelers shirt on line for less than $15

I have an account setup at www.cafepress.com to sell t-shirts. The problem is I haven't created a design for it. I want it to be BEAUTIFUL!

Sure, why not? Anyone who purchases an SF t-shirt or donates via paypal will receive a cool contributor badge and maybe access to other cool features! Woooooohoooooo!!!

I`m sure you can ask for ideas for a design. Jerseys gone so I guess we won`t get his input.
