Is there any reason to continue doing both?

I think KCMiniClub is the one to keep.

Rich--

Can you grab some numbers for us? How many site entrances are we getting from the .org? If it's minimal, maybe it's time to let it go.

If you'll drop me a PM with mailing address, I'll get funds on the way.

Thanks for all you do to keep our site and forum up and running!

I'll look at some stats tomorrow or on the weekend. Since we converted everything over to kcminiclub.com I'm pretty sure all traffic is going that way. I think the main benefit at this point to keeping the original domain is to keep it from getting into the hands of a spammer or someone whose going to put ads on a park page.

Well, for 2013 we had 25 unique visitors hit us initially from the .org address.

I think its safe to assume we can abandon it :wave:

Thanks for checking the numbers, Rich!

Unless anyone objects, let's renew the .com for five years. Okay with y'all?

You guys are kind to offer! The club has plenty of funds at the moment. We are also out of club decals and need to re-order those, but again I think we have some funds available. Maybe we can pass hat in the Spring. :)

Johnna, not sure if this has to do with what you do but I have a question. On our home page ( the one with the picture) the words at the bottom left cannot be read very clearly. Can that be fixed? :-?

Are you speaking of the page at www.kcminiclub.com?

Could you cut and paste the words in here so we know what you are referring to? The words at the bottom left that I see are "© 2014 KC Mini Enthusiasts. All rights reserved." Are those the words you are talking about?

The kcminiclub.com domain has been renewed and is now good through 02/21/2019, by which time I hope to again have a MINI. :thumbsup2:

Happy Motoring,
