    The Feedback thread.

    Current topic begins here: https://www.mjjcommunity.com/forum/t...=1#post4277618

    This is just a suggestion by me to keep the discussion there, to avoid double posts.

    Thnx Gaz for everything you did in the past and everything you are still willing to do to keep this place alive. A 150 USD a month shouldn't be a problem to collect with monthly subscriptions considering the amount of people that enjoy this place now should it?

    Just subscribed. Good luck!

    It might be good to add $1 and $2 tiers as well. I can imagine there are people that think $5/month is too much, but are happy to do $1/2 a month.

    I feel really awful because I honestly cannot afford to donate right now... But I'll do whatever I can to help us get through these hard times, as others have suggested. I hope you understand.

    (Edit: When I get some spare cash, I'll subscribe to one of the higher Patreon levels.)

    Oh, thank you!

    I love this place, and I always have a handful of browser tabs open with old threads I intend to read, whenever I find the time. There’s so much information available here. It’s history being written. We can’t let this end, especially not over a handful of dollars, when we can easily share the burden.

    I am more than willing to keep the hosting going and as and when needed to sort any technical issues (when I have the time) But I'm really sorry to say that I am not willing to pay for it anymore, at least all on my own.

    So 2020 is a new direction, you guys the active users need to come together yoursleves and between you decide, perhaps have conversations, pm each other or others to help, its either that I will be removing this site and forum's server.

    These are the times we are in and this is the future...

    I'm so so sorry to bring this to you all, but I feel I have been putting it of for a few years now in hope something will come along and your MJ santuary away from all the haters and liars will continue, but its not to be and clearly we as a community need to take the burden or its over.

    Anyways guys, all you got to do is perhaps organise some sort of collective group that manages things between you all to ensure this is actioned, by making steps to get those who use this place, love this place, call this place thier MJ home, help keep it.

    Anyways guys, much love to you all, I really do hope for a collective community outcome to this situation.

    Best,
    Gaz
    Haven't you attended special MJ events because of your ownership of this site? The fact that you are saying you get nothing from this website doesn't match up with that.

    If you are saying that you don't even visit this website anymore, it sounds like you don't care anymore. My suggestion is if your heart isn't in it, then stop hosting the website.

    I think it's really not cool to act like you aren't interested in running this website anymore, but then turn around and ask people for money to keep it running.
    Put all your energy into your finger and throw it out like fire.

    That was almost ten years ago, nothing like that has happened in almost 7 years, you still living of things from seven years ago? Don't think so...plus I'm refering to now and the last couple of years.

    If you are saying that you don't even visit this website anymore, it sounds like you don't care anymore. My suggestion is if your heart isn't in it, then stop hosting the website.
    Bollocks...It mean's my life has just taken a different turn as of late, it does NOT mean I don't care, if I didn't care I would like others have just delete and dissapear, what I care for is the fans and those who do enjoy this place.

    I think it's really not cool to act like you aren't interested in running this website anymore, but then turn around and ask people for money to keep it running.
    Nonsense...this place is about the fans and what they want, NOT whether I'm interested in it or not...

    It won't just suddenly disappear. If Gaz has to close the site at some point he'd let everyone know first.

    Gaz has been forking out a fortune every month to keep MJJC going, for years. And almost all of you have been taking full advantage of it without giving any monetary contribution. And now after an age of paying for it by himself, Gaz decides he doesn't want to do that anymore and you complain. He has given you a home and a sanctuary for **** knows how long. How about some gratitude and support?

    Just set up my monthly donation! It was really easy, so if you have the means, go do it! I know I don't post super often, but I still really appreciate this place and want to see it keep going.
