    There are currently 13 Premium members on Truckingboards and I thank you for supporting the website but effective the 1st qtr of 2016 , Premium Membership will be eliminated as an option.

    Too many modifications have to be done to justify keeping it.

    For those of you with a still active Premium membership , I will offer you a pro rated refund on the amount of time you have left or you may donate the balance to help cover the cost of maintaining this website.

    Advertising pays for this website and the advertising rarely changes, Nothing will pop up in your face and you can easily read your forums , I have always viewed my ads just as you on this site and they don't even bother me as I see them all over the internet wherever I go.

    Thanks for being here and Merry Christmas also wishing you the best in 2016


    ~Jeff

    Thanks guys but when i make the switch I will gladly refund the money left in your balance , I don't have the time I used to have to work on this site, I want it to be simple to update, Now when an update needs to be made it takes a day to fix stuff and I put it off as a result, I want to make it easy to update so we can have the latest greatest forum that keeps the site secure as possible.

    As I said, I have always looked at the ads and they never bother me as long as they don't pop up in my face, I won't ever do that to anyone, nor will I hard code the site to block the content from people who block ads, with all the members here I should not have to pay to keep this site running out of pocket anymore (I did for years) . Clicking on ads you are not interested in is stealing from the advertisers and people should never do that but Truckingboards pays it's bills just by the number of times the ads are seen...

    Every 19th of the month I get a bill for the server that is similar to a car payment and when ads are blocked it comes directly from my pocket and I do the same job for a living you do.

    Enjoy the site, Don't block the advertising, I love you all and Wish you all the best New Year of your life

    oh P.S. this site is not in finacial trouble by no means, it runs in the black every month thanks to the advertisers here and your traffic

    No donations are needed at all

    and I will not accept any Christmas presents valued over 200 dollars :)

    I have a used 2015 , 53 foot prevost, four slides I am trading in for a new one. I was going to send it to Jeff and his wife and dogs could ride in style, but Oh well, Maybe Obama will want it. Sometimes you just cannot give anything away.

    well i am cruising the boards, and the ads do not seem to be a bother. i never blocked them in the past before i became a paid member either.

    as long as the site is updated and maintained on YOUR time schedule, it should be ok for us to continue on.

    by the way, i am FIRST to say this about the new page.....!!!!!

    Don't worry about refunding anything to me, Jeff, I've always been happy to pitch in.

    By the way, I DO accept gifts over $200.00, so send that bass boat and Prevost bus my way.:1036316054:
    Does anyone have a 200 acre ranch that they're trying to give away?:biglaugh:
