We've got time to think about it. No need to make a decision right this minute. Let's give this guy a chance (especially since no regulars here seem to be willing or able to take the reigns instead).

Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound."

Hmm. Got the PM and realised I haven’t been back on a while, then read this.

Would be sad if this place disappeared as I know you’ve put a lot of work into keeping it going following the reggie issues all those years ago.

Sad to say My 2 cents aren’t worth much following my lack of contribution since 2013/14 whilst all you oldies (and newbies...relative to me at least heh) have continued to the grow the site.

I’ll think about what I want to do in the future.
lol, marquee. HTML ROOLZ!

In my 25+ years of discussion board experience (starting with streaming chat), discussion sites managed by computer nerds work efficiently and die fast...  There has to be someone In Charge dedicated to the subject.

Don't know THE first thing about running a forum.
Would volunteer if i did.
I like this place. But how it works? That's like magic to me.

The most successful discussion boards I've participated in worked best with a velvet glove on an iron fist, and by allowing a few  (and only a few) pests, if that helps any...

Man I've been forum hopping on Wolf's and Naru's forums since the great atheist forum died 8 or 9 years ago.

Any update on this? I'm still eager and willing to take care of the sysadmin stuff of this site.

Mr.Obvious

If we need someone and we have no other volunteers, count my vote to automatically go to halkenburg.

Sorry hal, if that doesn't sound  extremely enthusiastic. I think I'd prefer someone who has been around longer. But I doubt someone will volunteer. You are most like to do right by the site though. And even if you aren't. If it dies out we lose it anyway.

Just out of curiosity, what DOES it take to keep this site going?  I know money, but what else?   I've always wondered.  Is there a basic software program that does it or do you have to write in code yourself?

Every full moon, we have to sacrifice a black goat to the devil. A chosen virgin must consume its heart by midnight, followed by a mandatory orgy that must last at least three hours.

Well, gee, I thought it was COMPLICATED!  What does it require AFTER the orgy?

That was remarkably unspecific.  Theoretically, there could be software for almost ANYTHING any one wanted to do.  What I was wondering was
1.  If the problem with keeping the site active was numbers of people, that might have a solution.
2.  If it is funding, there is a solution.
3.  If it is computer programming expertise, there might be talented recruits known to some participants or people willing to learn.
4.  If you are just bored and want to move on, fine.  But allow the site to continue.
