Bimmerfest Server Drive

**UPDATE**

The E46Fanatics Server drive is ending this Friday (11/1/2002). If you want to donate please do so before the end of the drive!

Thanks to everyone that has donated so far!

--

As you may have seen we are running a server drive at E46Fanatics.com. Bimmerfest and E46Fanatic share the same server so we wanted to give bimmerfest members the opertunity to help out.

The bimmerfest Server Drive!

The bimmerfest Server drive is to raise money for the costs of an additional server. bimmerfest is maxing out is current server and needs to add a dedicated mysql server to maintain site speed and stability.

bimmerfest provides assistance to those "hooked on BMWs" every day...free of charge. Your contribution means a great deal to us...but even more to the members who rely on bimmerfest to help them get through their BMW addiction...some of the most difficult times of their lives.

With your ongoing support we can continue to keep this BMW community strong through various programs including; Forums, News, and Member Features

bimmerfest is not a federally funded modding society; we must rely on supporting Sponsors and the Car Community. With everyone's ongoing support, we will continue to be there providing for people in BMW-crisis … car talk for today and hope for tomorrow

Please click the button to make a donation with Paypal!

Added bonus:

Anyone that donates will get preferential treatment on the next round of bimmerfest sticker. We should have stickers in the next few weeks so if you want to ensure that you get some Donate NOW! If you would like bimmerfest stickers with your donation please put in your address on the donation form so we can send them out.

If you are interested in becoming a bimmerfest supporting sponsor please email pix@performanceIX.com for more information.

Agreed.

I just tried to donate, but my paypal acct. was sorely outdated, with a defunct email address, and I forgot the password. I have to wait for my new password to arrive via postal mail.

Any way to make a credit card donation via an alternate method?

Let's all chip in and help out. If you can afford to buy a BMW, you can afford to open up your wallet and chip in at least a little. I bet most of you spend more time here than in your car.

Good job with the server so far, guys. It's by far the best Bimmer Forum on the web.

Sure, a few bucks are worth it to me. All you heavy festers, think about what kind of load those multiple thousands of posts have on the server.
