Re: Briv

If briv sees this, I think it's time to have multiple admins.

And if that doesn't happen, we should move to a new site before this happens again.

Agreed let’s migrate now. Datadyne if you set a kickstarter or the like I will contribute to expenses to either buy this database/domain or start anew.

Re: Outage

We need a new forum with an active admin before this happens again.

Re: Outage

Relatively new member to archboston. signing up as a member was a huge pain. I would love to see new management of the site / active admins. An upgrade to the forum / site would be icing on the cake.

Re: Briv

I'm working on setting something up at archboston.net for when we are ready/forced to move, though I would hate to lose everything here.

I am preparing a new forum at archboston.net. I won't be visiting facebook because it is awful.

Re: Outage

Great! However, we discussed in the group that any new group must have multiple admins, to avoid the risk of another briv scenario. Would that be something you’d be willing to accommodate?

Re: Outage

Justin's idea sounds fine. But given this site has such a rich archive, maybe we can come up with some type of way to help pay for it – if better funding is the elixir to keep the site up.

Re: Briv

Excuse the hysterics, but Briv's complete abandonment of this place borders on criminal neglect, and it makes me wonder about his well being considering how active, both as an admin and a poster, he used to be. I mean something dramatic must've happened in his life to desert the place like this.

From the Facebook group there may be people skilled enough to migrate the posts to a new platform.
