Well that's the main thing, all other options seem to have led to more massive mountains of work just to get what is already available for a small cost considering what we could be paying for a fully custom site. And should we need to update we would have to practically set up everything again. An all-in-one software allows the staff to focus more on you guys and other organizing of events rather that just trying to keep the site pages working for you to use the site.
All that said, I've just received another donation closing the gap further for the cost amount and I'm getting ready to make the purchase soon. Anyone else what to chip in please feel free, anything will help.
Also if you would like to become a part of the staff once the new site is up to help reignite some excitement around here, please feel free to PM me and we'll see what job position we can give you.
