    Can you explain the “if you still shop Amazon, use our link” thing.

    I’m assuming it was strictly for things I saw posted on that store (oils, filters etc...)

    My wife is an Amazon addict, so I want to make sure that you’re not missing out on some sort of trickle down kick-back for any purchases going through the SVT link.

    Nope, it's for anything you purchase from Amazon as long as you start from that link. They give a kickback on all the sales from it. If she doesn't want to start from an grease monkey page this link will accomplish the same thing - Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more

    I’ll try to pop a MO in the mail to help. I quit using paypal due to their restrictions on gun parts purchases.

    For those with similar issues, look at using GunTab – Safe payments for any online gun deals

    The libtards are coming hardcore and they’re not playing nice. They’re coming for our guns, they’re coming for diesel trucks, they’re coming for the trucking industry, they’re coming for muscle cars and hot rods and they’re coming for all forms of conservative social media.

    in the meantime why not just make the sections that might draw the eye of sauron visible only if you're logged in or have a certain post count?

    there's more than one way to skin a cat. you need a failover protocol for sure but its a car forum not something that is a threat to the narrative by merely existing.

    I’m in and I don’t even have one anymore, I just appreciate the site and Sid’s honesty with the needs of new hardware and associated costs.

    I think there is a large subset of people who don’t understand the value of honesty and what people are willing to do if it they receive said honesty.

    Thanks.

    I’ll see if I can get her app to load up the page and do her shopping from there.

    Even if it’s just a penny on the dollar, she’ll earn this place a few dollars in no time.:eek:

    Thanks Travis. Amazon (unfortunately) is my go-to place for pretty much everything we need except clothing. I'll use that link going forward.

    Also, nice to see so many people signing up for Premium Membership.

    The Amazon link is only about and extra $75-100 per month, but every little bit helps.

    Already done.

    There's no way Ford is ever going to license that, and legally the site can't be involved with any unlicensed merch.

    Little known fact, there's a carve-out in Section 230 for intellectual property. A site can be held liable for infringing products/content sold/posted by users.

    Added this to the first post:

    Update - 1/12/21 - Our goal is to raise $7,500. That would cover all the new hardware and software the site desperately needs while still insuring that we stay completely free and independent.

    Paid up! I feel like a dick for not doing it sooner. Joined in college when I was dreaming of buying a cobra and I’ve got so much useful knowledge over the years - would be crushed if anything happened to the site. Hell the NWS funny pics/memes thread on pics and videos alone is damn near worth $50

    Would you ever consider selling "shares" or whatever in the site almost like someone who owns stock in a corporation? I'm not saying something like 20 or 30 or 40% as an example. I'm honestly curious.
