It is actually $99.99 (I didn't notice the .99 on the end). I just did a Google conversion and they say $99.99 = £72.42

This is the plan they are offering.

Well I have done it and taken the plunge, it came to £74.50, PayPal charge a traction fee to convert from $ to £'s.

I have done a quick search for one of my last postings of photos and found that it now works. [www.cricketnetwork.co.uk]

I've set up a GOFUNDME site for Mike and to investigate possible options to celebrate 2019 as the 25th year of Grockles

The Gofundme is called

Grockles.com 25


and you should be able to access it here if you want to contribute. I hope it will raise enough to fund Mike for this year (already done) and next year. We'll see how many are interested.

Thanks to those who do. No pressure on anyone. It is just an experiment.

I think you can go straight to the page using the link below. Let me know if you can I haven't done this before.

Grockles.com 25

Can't get it to work Grockle. I key in all details but when I press 'continue' it just freezes ?

Have tried a few times, so if you get multiple contributions let me know !

If it has worked Grizzz you should have got a 'thank you'. It may be your North American location though I'm not sure why it would be.

Nothing comes to mind as a suggestion except try it when you are this side of the pond. I expect it to be open for quite a while to reach anywhere near the total.

Thanls for trying.

Mike's photos are worth their weight in gold. This is the first season for so long that I do not have membership and it is unlikely that I shall get to Taunton so a little in the kitty is well worth it. Good thinking chaps.

Mike, excuse my ignorance on these things but does it mean that all your old photographs will now be visible again?

I have just been looking at a thread in 2008 and against your postings there was a caption that read, "3rd Party Hosting has been temporarily disabled." That is what made me think that they have been lost for good, and that is a shame.

Clarence, I thought they had all reappeared again, I only checked one posting from last year and it was showing again. So I thought they all did!

Yes, thank you Mike, I can see those but this is the link to which I was referring:-

I haven't looked for any others.

Clarence and Bagpuss, I have worked it out, 2008 I was posting using 'ImageShack' until I was told I had exceeded my maximum number of postings, and they wanted to charge me.

So I moved to Photobucket in 2012 so any photos posted before that date will not appear on here.

I just checked with the ImageShack website using my old login detail and I can't even see them, they are still there but they are asking me to pay to use the site.

Since moving to Photobucket in 2012 I have posted over 2600 photos on the Grockle website, thank goodness we have them back.

So Photobucket did not just remove the hosting of photos you had with them but also seem to have removed hosting for photos you posted before you moved?

Maybe the photos from Imageshack had already gone but we just didn't notice because they were back a decade ago?

Thanks for the explanation, Mike.

So glad that your 2600+ photos can still be seen. Keep shooting.

Just checking out the crowd funding page. It is good practice to add a tip? Never used such a site and a bit wary.

The cause is without doubt an excellent one.

Thanks Mike.

Nope you don't need to they don't charge - no idea how it works for the people setting it up.

If you haven't seen the discussion of early days elsewhere Botham, can you remember when you first wrote a comment on the original Grockles site? I remember you and Penfold but we were trying to identify a date. We have one for the first report but not for the development of a forum.

I vaguely remember Penfold, but I can’t recall much of lbs. I’ll give it some thought.

I have just caught up with this thread. I am glad to add my contribution towards the publication of Mike's photos and the silver jubilee celebration for this site.
