The long awaited move is finally upon us. We will be transferring SVTP to our new servers starting early this weekend. In addition to the site operating on new, much faster, boxes we will simultaneously performing a massive software update. Some features will be unavailable for some time, but we plan on adding as many of the functions you’ve become accustomed to as possible.


We started this process several months back by reminding you guys of the supreme importance of us investing in our own infrastructure. We’ve seen an unprecedented amount of content based censoring/deplatforming from major social media sites over the past year, and none of us want to say that happen to SVTP. To that end, we decided that it would be best to keep the site on hardware we own and control. Given what we’ve seen transpire in the last few months, I don’t think it’s too hard to imagine the current crop of internet nannies shifting their sights from conservatives and firearms to terrible polluting high-performance V8 vehicles.


That’s why we go the extra mile to keep as much control as we possibly can over every aspect of the SVTP. Unfortunately, that is a very expensive proposition. We are still a bit less than $4,000 away from meeting our funding goals in order to pay for all the custom software mods we want in order to make the user experience as great as possible. That stuff just isn’t cheap.


If you would like to help contribute to the effort, there’s a couple of simple ways to do it. First, you can make a direct donation through Paypal to [email protected]. Signing up as an SVTP Premium Member is always appreciated. And we have several tiers of booze themed Contributor Tags. If you really want to go nuts, consider becoming an SVTP OG for Life. You can see the full menu of options here:

Anything you can kick our way is greatly appreciated. It goes a long way towards the improvements we want to make, and helps insure that SVTP can maintain its status as a haven for critical thinking and free information sharing.


Thanks,
SID297

Gangster! Seeing how many sites have been gobbled up by Vertical Scope, its nice to be a part of one of the few truly free and independent performance enthusiast boards.

They are a Canadian company, I wouldn't be surprised if they cracked down more in the future.
Just have to take one look at the changes they have made to yellowbullet and its clear that they are playing the long game. Unfortunately, many members across the boards they own don't understand that they are merely the product thats sold to advertisers.

I did the $25/month one. $1000 for the OG is a little more than I would want to shell out haha

Anyway you guys can take money without using PayPal, who just so happens to rat you out to the Government on how you spend your money?
