    For days now i've had the hardest time with this forum, on two of my computers. Both my work and my home! Is anyone else having this problem?

            alot of people do not realize that this forum started as a hobby of mine when i was planning my wedding...back then it had 4 members.

            now it has over 5000 with 20-30 people joining every day.

            i pay for the hosting, software, tech support, etc. out of money from my own pocket and also am the one that has to do all the upgrades, maintenance, etc. on my own in my free time as i cannot afford to have someone work full time keeping this site running smoothly.

            i think people also do not realize that searches, downloading attachments all use server bandwidth so they cause the server to run more slowly...so when you see a newby complaining about "Points" and why they can't just download as many attachments as they want and you donate points thinking you are being generous, keep in mind what you are really doing.

            also, when you complain about the ads, also keep in mind they are the only thing keeping this forum up and running...if this server plan i have now does not work i will have to upgrade the server AGAIN. this will take a ton of time and also cost double what the hosting plan we are on now costs.

            another thing, I own a travel agency that specializes in DW so when you advertise your own travel agent for perks or whatever it is a little frustrating.

              I was on the forum even with my mom's superslow dial-up & old computer. It was like 5 minutes a page, but I still couldn't get off.

                We don't thank you nearly enough, Tammy, for all you do in hosting this awesome forum for DW brides. We all take it for granted that every morning BDW will be there when we log in. If there is something we can do to help you, please let us know. (Would a donation button be feasible?)

                  I agree. I'd be willing to donate. I would have seriously hurt someone by now with out the BW girls.
