Scoobymods has been around for quite some time and it's pretty much run by Kastle and myself, that's it. For my part I try to keep the site current with information, post mods and make attempts to answer questions; all I do is dedicate my time and effort. However, Kastle has all the hardware and costs associated with that. Everything comes out of his pocket. Kastle has been out of work for some time now and keeping the site on line is in serious jeopardy. We've attempted to have a fund-raiser of sorts which has helped out but apparently it wasn't a roaring success. Kastle has informed me that he needs to do something soon (real soon) or he's going to have to stop scoobymods altogether. He put up some limited info here:

http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3604

He and I have been talking about a few things like a small fee (10 bucks?) for a yearly membership and stuff like that. I really don't want to do that but if it comes down to removing the site or charging I'm not sure we have a much of a choice. I've got way too much time and effort invested to let this happen.

There is a very long thread here:

Best to skip to the last page for the most current info.

We've been trying to keep the site afloat since December. What we really need, I think are more good sponsors but that hasn't panned out very well either

I can't begin to describe how bad I feel about asking for help but if it's possible we could use your support.

Thanks,

Peaty

It seems that Scoobymods has had to go PPV. It seems like a lot of people didn't know we were asking for help and were caught off guard when the site went to PPV for the mod section. We are going to have another go and hopefully before the end of July it will be open to everyone. Please view this link for details:

the above thread will be the main one that will have the tally updates.

Thanks,

Sorry I didn't update this sooner, but we were able to reach our fund raiser goal in under a week, so scoobymods is again a free site. We only require you register to be able to post. That's not to say we aren't still taking donations :p But I am happy that we had a good amount of support to keep us going.
