Re: What's happening with Forum since Pozible Don??

Thanks for the responses. Good to have the feedback. Since posting this, I've had a brief exchange with a guy who has been through the BB3 to SMF forum change and fwiw he said there were a few minor changes to the way people did stuff, but otherwise it went fine - and from an admin perspective they'...

What's happening with Forum since Pozible Don??

Well this is pretty long overdue. :oops: I guess the first thing to let you know is that the money raised is still sitting safe and sound in our account. Well, minus the monthly server bills for the forum and the website. ($ have been allocated to cover all hosting costs for the next year plus.) Oth...

Apologies Rocket!!!

I was fanging through the usual forum approvals this morning and accidentally zapped Rocket and all his posts. All the poor guy had done was change his email addy. My abject apologies mate. If you re-register, please shoot me an email to let me know and I'll ensure prompt reinstatement.

Re: Go Pros and Surfing

How did you know this? I don't. In saying camera angles, I did'nt make the assumption that the land camera was a gopro. Is it possible to get any depth of field for distance shooting with one of those weeny 'lil things? I don't know. JD Interesting thread everyone. In answer to your question, becau...

Re: Keep the forums firing, everybody!

Hi all! So, yep, we got there with a few days to spare. So now I'm hoping to get the total pledger count up to 200 - just because it'd be cool to have that many people who think enough of the site to kick in a little coin to the cause. Hope I see a few of you fine folk at the big evening. The midwee...

Re: Keep the forums firing, everybody!

Hmm. I put the comma in there but, I don't think it works. :-) Being English, it's "right" either way. Unlike the new government - which is all the way to the right. Pretty cool that we've hit 20% of the goal in just 3 days. And huge thanks to those forum luminaries who turned up for the dawn patrol...

Hi Steve, which stats were you wanting me to post? I'm guessing the obvious stuff such as page views and uniques, right?

Keep the forums firing, everybody!

Hi all, Don here. Got a big favour to ask of each of you. Would you please go take a look at the RealSurf crowdfunding page on Pozible? More to the point, would you look at it and then kick something in? Thanks in advance for checking it out! Here's the link to the We're RealSurf project page on Poz...

Re: A personal message from Don

Hi again More useful and not so useful but still funny thoughts. Again, good to see from my side and hugely appreciated. re: the rewards/incentives whatever they're called I've had a look at the pozible handbook as well as the detail of the process by which one sets up a crowdfunding project and I c...

A 10-pack of postcards... I like that idea Alakaboo! I like it a lot...! Karlos, don't worry mate, with everybody's generous help, we'll keep these going for just as long as people want them. :-) In my researching how others have set up their crowdfunding drives, I came across a guy who was offering...

Re: A personal message from Don

Hi all So encouraging to read your posts, thanks! I'm getting pretty hopeful about how this might go because unlike many crowdfunders, RealSurf has been around long enough (almost 18 years!!!) that we've got quite a few friends. Last time we did a whip 'round (5 or 6 years ago I think), social netwo...

Re: A personal message from Don

Thanks for those encouraging remarks! Nice to get that kind of feedback so quickly. As soon as I knock over a short piece for Photo Review's app version about using Nikon's new 800mm, I'm back on to the crowdfunding stuff. Today's project will be researching topics such as the optimal length of time...

A personal message from Don

Hi all Just in case you haven't seen the post I put up this morning on the RealSurf home page (see below), I wanted to bring it to your attention. After many years, I've finally decided to do another fundraiser for both the Forums and RealSurf's home page. As I note below, advertising income has spu...

Re: Hacked

Hi folks,
I have not been able to duplicate the issue myself. But to be on the safe side I'm going to deactivate all the ads because the ad server is my top suspect for now. I know, I know, no ads, how terrible.
Not sure how long it'll take...

Re: Michael Peterson dead...

As many of you may know, I was lucky enough to shoot some 16mm footage of Michael in 1977 at Kirra, the Stubbies and Winki Pop. When I heard he died, I got some of it out and put some of the Winki Pop footage together with a tune. I know Collnarra and Larry have seen it and maybe Nick, but it hasn't...
