CF works as follows:

The initial 30% are raised from relatively larger donations from fewer people 30? 50?
After that you spread the news among all your users, their family members, friends and neighbours (ust joking... )

Those people will have to add 5 GPB eah and we complete the 10,000 in 4 weeks.
I kindly ask all admins to help. Moving the forum to another server is by far more expensive.

Thanks a lot fellows.

Hi Admin. Regarding the thread for Crowd Funding...

Our Forum has been alive now for 6 years with our Anniversary coming up in a couple of weeks. We think that we've been successful in our endeavours to create a great enthusists Forum. Maybe it's time for certainty for the Members and pehaps we should be thinking about our own dedicated website and a transfer of our Database to that site. Personally I can only thank you for everything that you've done to help us on different occasions.

I understand that this is quite a daunting task to us mere mortals and would ask if you could give us some idea of the total cost of buying a dedicated domain and the transfer of our complete database if undertaken by yourself. This may be a good way to raise some funds for your cause from multiple forums.

Look forward to a response on this

Thanks
Keith

Hi Keith, I'm definitly not the admin but  I have some rough numbers of moving the forum to your own web site.
Buy a domain - From GBP 3 and up.
Maintainig a domain some GBP 15/year and up.  
Exporing data - GBP 60.
Importing and installing data GPB 300 and up.
Hosting - Depends how large is yor database.

It is much cheaper do donate here GPB 100 than shutting downj myff.

The myff admin snd owner,  will make more money if the forum is shut down.

I'm an admin at http://sangabrielmnts.myfreeforum.org/

But I'm not the owner. He hasn't been active at the forum for years. If I donate to the CF campaign and the goal is not met, would you email the export file to a non-owner admin so that we could keep the forum alive? Thanks.

Hi Sean,

I've noticed that Martin is not here for the past 48 hours. As to your question I believe / hope  ( :  /   )
you'll be able to get the database. But I'm not the admin here, so why don't you PM Martin with your question?

Have a great weekend.
Yankale

I was not allowed to PM here because I haven't posted enough yet. I just signed up for this support forum.

I'll wait for a public answer. Or maybe Martin can PM me a private one.

RE: the recurring Q of whether donated money will be returned, the Crowdfunding site suggests that no money will ( actually) be taken unless the target of £10,000 is reached by the deadline . That is by 8:21am 19th April 2017 btw.
Their exact words are "Your card will only be charged on 19th April 2017 if the project is successful". You won't see that until you have clicked on their "Donate" tab.
Hope that helps.

Many of us invested 5-10 years in creating a database. Dr. Google knows us.
Google always rates websites higher than forums.

Once you move your forum to a new server you will be forgotten in no time.
Keep that in mind when you consider to transfer your data to a new server.
How much are you willing to pay to keep your Google rating?

Have a great weekend.

Keep your Google rating for free.
========================================

Transfer of data costs ~ GBP 350-450 which is downloading charge + time for installing
the data on a new server. An expert will do that in ~5 hours. You will start paying a hosting
fee of ~ GPB 5 /month or more based on your database size + you lose your Google rating.

What I've donated - GBP 100 -  is way below the minimum I am willing to pay in order to keep my Google rating.

Say a huge Thank You to Martin, be generous!!!

I'm afraid we can't export to a non owner. The rules of dues process are still valid here.

Try and get the owner to authorise a change in ownership.

IMHO 35 supporters should have raised by now a minimum of GPB 3500. At this pace we
will not raise 10,000 , and only 23 days left. Based on what Martin said all those who donated
will get a free of charge data download if we miss the target. This is a very good deal donate 20... so why pay 60?  

People are disappointed that the forum closure and yet nobody is willing to pay a resonable
amount of money. I have 3000 forum members. I know for a fact that if I ask, they
will donate. But there is absolutely no way that I ask any of them to donate a penny.
