So, I am officially looking for someone here (first) who would be interested in taking over management/ownership of the forum. We are paid up through next August so we don't HAVE to have an auction as we have had in the past to keep us going past May. I would be willing to run one again this year to get us paid up farther but I would like to find someone to handle the daily management and eventually take over full ownership of the forum. While I would hope that whomever manages the forum going forward would keep with the original tenets and spirit that it began with, the Internet has changed greatly since we started in 2006. We have seen other forums decline due to excessive advertising, too many new bells and whistles, etc. However, in passing the forum onto a new owner, it is expected that they would probably make some changes. I am not imminently going anywhere, nor is this notice of the forum closing. I will, of course, continue in my admin. responsibilities until a solution is found, but I have reached the point where I would like to pass the daily administration and responsibility and ownership on to someone more invested in continuing the forum. With the annual auction time looming, I think I need to put this out there now so we can all start thinking about it and have a plan in place. Feel free to discuss, brainstorm, etc. Remember, this is really YOUR forum. If someone is interested, please let me know.
