    Would you like to be able to embed video's? Recommend a post or share it in Facebook? Twitter? Have better newer options? Be smartphone compatible?

    I started sewa-darts.com back in June of 2003 when I was also a member over at dartplayer.net (they used to be two different sites run by me (sewa) and Jason Webb (dartplayer)) using software called 'phpnuke' just like dartplayer. Then Jason got too busy to maintain his site and it began to fall apart and the spammers attacked it relentlessly. We all moved here to SEWA and eventually I took over dartplayer and merged the sites.

    That was 14 years ago and while I've done minor updates to the site over the years I think it's time to leap into the modern world!

    However, as I do not have many advertisers and have always tried to keep them limited so you weren't inundated with advertising the hosting costs are covered (not quite this year but close enough) which means any funds required to update the site and make it more modern are 'out of pocket' for me. What's it going to cost? About $850 ($250 for the software license and $650 for the professional migration -- our database is HUGE and I don't want to lose it).

    So, will you help modernize the site with a donation? $5? $25? $50? anything helps!

    To donate please click the link below and thanks!

    For every $10 donation i will enter you in a chance to win a set of SEWA darts! There may be an original patch in there and/or some flights.

    Darts limited to weights I have on hand.

    In case you missed this one I'll post here also since it's about the same thing:

    Want a set of SEWA darts? How about some Team SEWA flights? An email account from dartplayer.net? SEWA-Darts.com? Maybe even a famed Team SEWA patch?

    Maybe even a set of my very custom 'Erik McVay' soft tip darts (20g darts the same size as my custom Team SEWA 24g darts).

    Here's your chance!

    First person to donate $10 to help the site upgrade and modernize gets a handful of Team SEWA flights (original)

    $10 Donation -- entry to win a set of custom soft tip darts, a set of flights (while they last)
    $25 Donation -- 2 entries to win the darts, your own email address from the site (good for one year) and a set of flights (as long as they last)
    $50 Donation -- as above but 5 entries to win the darts
    $100 Donation -- As above but 10 entries for the darts (will consider a forum section, or advert etc, I will contact anyone that donates $100 and discuss some options.

    One random person from all donations (including $5 donations) will win a Team SEWA Patch! (Now a collectors item)

    If we reach $850 then I will give away one of my four sets of custom darts (there are only 4 sets in the entire world!). If we do not reach $850 I will give away a set of WINMAU Stratos Dual Core darts instead.

    Other possible ideas may be added.

    Thanks for your support! You can donate here:
    https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=LAK4U5AF43F48

    Note: the total is going to be over $1000 actually but this will make the site much more modern!

    Erik - would there be a way to change something so you can load up pictures on the site easily? So I sometimes could do that during the tournaments!

    Yes. With the new system I am looking at that would be a feature as well as the ability to embed video

    I will start posting results as soon as I reach certain milestones (such as $100, $200 and so on).

    Thanks anyone who is willing to help out!

    Kopralph! Don't forget to PM me your address for that handful of Team SEWA flights! Also let me know if you want standards or pears.

    Who's next?

    Thanks Kimber for the help. Sent an email to you.

    OK folks, this is still going on (and will for some time but to win a set of darts you'll have to join in sooner rather than later).

    So who wants to help the site? and get a chance to win a set of my custom darts?
