The future of this website.

Postby Buzz » Sun Mar 26, 2017 11:05 pm

Hi all, looking for some feedback. I recently received the hosting renewal notice for the hosting of this website. It's more than doubled and came in at over $500 for the next two years. I cannot afford to keep carrying this cost, and am seeking feedback about the future of this website.

I'm looking at some options, including dropping down to a lower specced server, but will slow down speeds a touch.

As a community, what are your thoughts?

OH MY GOD.....it will be like losing a family member if it goes.....I couldn't cope....

I'll start the appeal by kicking in $25 to keep it alive in this format Buzz....just set up a process and I'll transfer the funds...

Hi

I'd be more than happy to contribute to a Go Fund Me page or send to a bank account.

Cheers :)

I am also happy to chip in $25. Wish it were more, but hopefully we can spread the load .
