I hope you have noticed the new Announcement.
Hosting needs to be renewed by 6/2/20 and I'm at a crossroads. Right now I can't afford to keep it going myself. If you want to send a donation, you may do so, if I receive enough to renew for even a year, I will do so, otherwise this forum will be going away in the near future and I will attempt to find another buyer for the domain.
see lower link
http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewto ... 164#p27164
There are to date 1492 members, this forum is too great to let it slid away again. Please consider a donation like a magazine subscription, range fee, or firearm purchase. I believe the cost last time was high and only a few sent in some cash and the owner paid over $600 if I remember correct. Most do not hesitate to spend $25 on pizza & beer. Please READ THE announcement, give it serious consideration, and help promote this great forum. Granted this comes at a bad time, but anyone that still has a job or some spare cash please lets keep this unique forum going. :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

Makes sense for me to post here, since you all can't reply to the Announcement subforum.

With the donations I've received in the last day we're about half way to a year of hosting. Last time I put about $600 out of pocket and another $75 two years later - three years of hosting is a little over $930 for our usage, which is what I got last time. I'd rather not do a year over year renewal, but if it means the forum continues living, I will. Having said that, my expectation is that, soon, we will have some volunteers step up for some leadership roles in running the forum, including a technical contact to keep the software going. If someone has ideas or nominations, please let the current leadership team know. We're always looking for new folks to bring new life and blood.

For those that love this forum please consider sending a check sort of like a range fee.
