Re: Briv

I don't think that the money aspect is enough where we need to add paid subscriptions. Not sure of the exact costs but I don't think it would be more then 200 a year to host a site.

Some unobtrusive AdWords could work too.

Re: Briv

I doubt many people would actually pay for the “privilege” of posting on this board.

Re: Briv

I have to agree - a paid subscription service seems silly for this site. If we need help with hosting costs I am not than happy to chip in (or just pay for it if I setup the hosting). I can't see this using more than 50-100$ a year on AWS or something.

Re: Briv

I have to say, this process would be super easy if Briv would spend 5 mins to give one of us access to this site. In fact we wouldn't even have to move.

THANK YOU. Everyone is so eager to expend all this effort to move the site yet seem unwilling to answer the simple question: has anyone tried emailing the guy??

To the people asking, why don't you just do it yourself?

Also what would be the point? We already know that briv has chosen to nothing in spite of knowledge that the current admin situation is an issue.

Re: Briv

I used to know how to do a lookup of who a domain is registered to, including name, address, etc. Can't remember how to do it anymore, but I'd even take the time out of a free day to email, call, or even show up at Briv's house if it would help and if I could get the necessary info to do any of that.

Not trying to be a dick. Just pointing out the amazingness of google search.

I tried that, but they were all coming up with the whois information redacted and saying to pay to be able to see the info.

I used the link Data provided, that one was great. But seems Briv scrubbed some info out. Pretty sure I remember his address being in there at one time, in Weymouth or something. Anyway, don't have the info I need to reach out IRL.

Yeah, it seems Briv is actively avoiding contact with aB, which is... odd. I don't blame him for not wanting everyone to know his address and phone number (this stuff is still available if you know where to look, but I'm not going to dox the guy), but you'd think if he's taking the time to hide he could take the time to visit the board and appoint an admin. Hope he is ok and finds his way through whatever the problem is.
