Quote from: Pup Cam on June 04, 2018, 16:26:43 pmSorry Bob but I think that does RCMF a huge disservice! It will be ok for general tittle-tattle (if you like it sequential and easily lost or forgotten) but a very, very poor substitute for what we had here. I whole heartedly support efforts to encourage Mike to join the new group, along with everyone else I like to think the community has provided him (and many others) great support at times of need and to have a place to go is great - but it won't be the same, not by a very long chalk.But do join Mike!Alan

Quote from: nmacwarbirds on June 04, 2018, 20:52:20 pmDear AllI have received a reply from the owner of Flyingsites.He thought he was undergoing a spam attack as a lotof people were registering on the site.He is running the site single handed which is commenableand openly admits that he does not have the expertise thatis prevalent on this forum.I think he is pleased that people are using his site again.If I can make a plea from the heart.Would you rather use a site where a single person is running itfor the benefit of others. And it is British you know. I have heard that somewhere before.Or use a site that is only interested in making vast sums of money.I will leave it with you.www.flyingsites.co.ukRegards Phil Goff
Quote from: Agent P on June 04, 2018, 20:29:21 pmHave you considered asking for small donations to help keep it going sites such as RCSCALEBUILDER.COM do this fairly successfully.
Quote from: FlyinBrian on June 05, 2018, 08:18:04 amI recall that in the early years we used to make donations, I'd be willing.
Quote from: pheasant_plucker on June 05, 2018, 09:20:04 amI think that due to the fact that the bandwidth is greatly reduced compared to the peak years and with a bit of database optimisation we could probably run on a shared server rather than the current dedicated one. This would slash costs to the point where a few low donations from here and there should cover costs.I'm thinking no advertising and removing unused features etc.I did say to Nigel yesterday that I was easy either way but the more I think about it I would be sorry to see the 15+ years of RCMF disappear.Gerry
