We once again thank you for all you do to support these forums. We have to make some costly changes over the next 12 months as we have to change format and will no longer be with Vbulletin after so many years as they no longer offer security or help with us...They moved on to vB5 which does not suit us at all.

We are looking to join Xenforo as I have mentioned before and SBH and myself will look into it over the next few months.

We have never had a change like this, and tbh it is not really our choice, but we will face it head on and will make these forums even better.

This of course is costly and one of the reasons I promote selling things on the Zone fundraising forum, it is not to drive you all mad.

I think it will cost us in the region of £1000 to £1500 (going by quotes) to change it all and keep us as we are, albeit in a new future,above our normal running costs.

I have noticed since I looked at Paypal, there are a few of you that donate amounts to SZ monthly, that is fantastic and thank you that do. Any more are of course welcome.

So here is the crux of the matter, any help you can give us financially with a donation would ease the pain.

You can use the link in my sig or the Green donate button in the nav bar.

These are your forums, not ours, we are mearly custodians of the future of The Zone and it is our job to make sure we will always be here.
