Actually out of interest Anders why are you closing down this space? Time restrictions? Hosting costs? Lack of interst from the community?

How about a re-brand?

I am teccy and can help out if needed with admin stuff? Although granted not much experience with forums - but I have set up a phpBB forum before! :)

Sure a bunch of people would chip in with the hosting costs to keep it going if this is the concern?


Be sad to see this place go.... Can we make it happen people? Keep the place alive!!!!

Hi guys

I have no experience with tech side of this etc - but I would be willing to chip in re hosting costs.
It's a great resource of info... :-)

Cheers

I dont think its a matter of costs, its the platform guys.

Anders and Hamish have been covering the costs.

Yes, the ISP that has VERY kindly let us run this for free is actually keeping a pre historic SQL platform alive just for this forum. We are very much on overtime and I have actually a while ago even reminded them that we are OK with the shutdown and are very greatful for letting us have the time to notify you all. I can not express how much I appreciate them running this for so many years for free.

So it could be down at any time. I think the cost of running would be in the area of ~£200/month (due to the old platform) so its not feasible to keep it running as is.

NOTE: information above is for the forum ONLY. The main page is running on a different server and I am hosting other stuff there. That site is NOT going down any time soon as I am actually paying of my own pocket to keep it running (with a few of my other projects - I can host several sites for the same cost).
