Hello all..

I'm pleased to announce that we are back :)

This is what happened

Due to the Chelsea game a lot of people were taking an interest in the site and the Evertonian opinions this led us to surpassing the bandwidth limit for the first time. It wasn't easy to get the site going again due to us having lost contact with Jon (Z-Cars) and it wasn't as simple as requesting an extra gigabyte here or there. The hosts would not speak to me about upgrading the bandwidth as the hosting account had nothing to do with me (it was all in Jon's name).

We've had to create our own account and move the site over to here, the site is now fully independent :) We've had a slight boost in bandwidth too, we now have 20gb and not 15gb.

As always we'll keep ToffeeTalk advert free.

Had been getting withdrawl symptoms from not having my daily toffeetalk fix. Thought someone might have spat the dummy after the Chelski game. Good to be back!

The reason we have a boost in bandwidth and are ad-free (that he doesn't mention) is that Louis has paid an annual fee of around 45.00 for it. Obviously there's no money to be made out of running TT so if anyone feels they could make a small contribution towards it I'm sure it'd be gratefully received. Would only take a couple of quid from twenty or so members and it'd be covered.

You can donate via Paypal but I don't know if Louis would want his email posted here so if you feel you can contribute then pm either him or another admin/mod for details. Thanks.

Neil send Mikeo or myself a PM and we can send you the address, old school like myself.
Its not necessary for you to try and pay the lot yourself, i'm sure theres enough of us to send a few quid each.

There was but people were sending money through it for the Rhys Jone trophy so I took it down to avoid people becoming confused. I've now readded it :)

I appreciate any donations that people are willing to make, they go towards:
  • Renewing toffeetalk.com domain - annual
  • Paying for website hosting - annual
  • Recouping cost of Invision board license - one off
