***Welcome to Myswag.org - answers to some FAQ's***
« on: August 28, 2015, 03:55:04 PM »
When and why was Myswag.org created?
The Forum was started by Brett (Forum name is "Brett" also) on the 18th of May 2007.  Brett was looking to purchase a CT (Camper Trailer) and was frustrated that there was no where he could "go" to speak with other owners regarding their CT's and what they thought their pros and cons were.  The only thing he could do was speak to each Manufacturer and so was unable to get an unbiased view of each brand.  He took it upon himself to approach some tech savy friends (as he had absolutely no b****y idea what he was doing) and...ta da...Myswag.org was born. 

How is Myswag.org funded?
Myswag.org is privately owned by Brett and he is determined that Myswag.org will remain "ad free" and so Forum costs (aka server fees) are covered by the sale of Myswag.org Merchandise and via the generosity of those Members who choose to donate to the Myswag.org Server Fund.  In recent times we have also had some wonderful Members who have taken it upon themselves to organise raffles in order to raise funds to cover the server fees as well.  These wonderful people make Myswag.org the wonderful place to be that it is  :cup:

How come I can only see a very small portion of the Forum?
The permissions of the various boards have been set so that only Members of Myswag.org can see them.  This is to protect the privacy of our Members as many of them have disclosed details and photos of their cars, camper trailers, sheds etc.  If you would like access to the whole of Myswag.org please a) become a Members of this wonderful Forum or b) log in if you are an existing Member  ;D

Folks,

The due date of the Server Fees is rapidly approaching  :-\ - the 5th of April to be precise  :o.  If you've been toying with the idea of making a donation to the Server Fund or purchasing some Myswag.org Merchandise, a prime time to do so is now!  Any contribution, great or small, will be gratefully received and will help fatten "Kitty" ready to pay the bill. 

Thank you in advance  :cheers:
