C Band Forever Big Dish Forum Status Report
Due to the large response for registration. There have been some issues with registration for our forum. If you have newly registered and have not received access yet, please contact us

We have changed access to our forums. Guests no longer are able to view any forums. You must be a registered member to view our content. This was a decision made by the C Band Forever Group as we move into the next phase of future happenings and the way they will affect C Band. If you are a member already and logged in this transition will be seamless.
The forums name was changed last month and we have now migrated to our new subdomain and server cbandforever. Slowdown issues and other problems are now a thing of the past. As we move forward for the future we will be rolling out in page links to products we provide. As the c band forever store opens there will also be links to products we sell. We have no plans to turn this site into a cash for click tracking cookie / malware, irritating adfest type site like other forums like Satellite Guys are. The revenue from our products, services and donations will keep providing the means to keep the doors of this forum open and servers updated, as we have up to this point. We are growing and things are looking up. The future is bright.
The forum has been working well for quite a while thanks to the good people that help us to keep this forum alive. We appreciate the dedication of many with the help and suport that they give. If you value it's existence and information and have a few coins to spare please donate to help us keep the lights on. We are not ad supported (I hate all those ads on sites) and need to pay the rent somehow.
Sorry to say that slowdown issues continue. If we ever meet the goals financially to fix things properly we will get things solved right. Until then it is what it is. We need to be happy that we have enough to keep things up as is another month. Thank you to all who have helped us keep this forum alive.
To solve the forum issues right we need a new server and equipment. We need to reach a goal of $1000 to get this done. When we reach the goal total from donations and other revenue we can provide towards the forum will be able to resolve this fully. Until then things are about as good as they get. We are sorry for any inconveniences. This is your forum guys, help out if you can.
Slowdown issues continue. We unlike other forums don't get support from massive advertising campaigns with Google and the like. We really don't want to turn this place into pages and pages of flashing ad's that may help support the forum. It makes it hard to navigate and really the ad's drive me crazy as many others. The only ad we have is to link to our 4DTV Custom Services which is helping the 4DTV community. We will keep working on making any improvements as finances allow. We appreciate all that any can do to help this along.
Financial issues are slowing down server repairs and upgrades. As we get the finances together needed we will fix all slowdown issues. Until that is achieved the forum will continue to have some issues. Were sorry for any inconvience with this. The internet is a great tool and forums like this are great places for information. Unfortunately running them have a price tag involved with bandwidth and equipment. On a shoe string budget only so much can be done.
We are in contact with our hosting company and working on a solution. This will take a while to resolve this issue. The forum at the moment is working fine but there could be a slowdown still since the move of the forum to our website server swap needs to be done. Thank you all for your patience.
Page load times may be slow to non existent due to server issues. We are in the process of seeing if upgrading our forum to our main web server will be beneficial. If we do this some information may be lost. We are waiting for more information from our webhost on the best course of action to take. At this point the shared server we are on is overloaded and causing massive delays. More will be posted here as we know more. Thank you for your understanding as we go through these growing pains. We appreciate all our members and their continued support of 4DTV, Our Services and C Band.
