Currently ther are some admins who are "sad" that the forum is going dopwn but they don't donate.

1) I, personally, have donated, and will be paying the 'full price' when we are ready to ask for the transfer file at the beginning of May (yes, we are planning on moving elsewhere).
2) אני מקווה כי הפורום שלך תומך לך את כל פעולות ומאמצים

With the announcement put up universally, visible to all, it isn't just the Admins that can or will respond - so it's down to all users on these forums to help save the site, several on my forum responded & donated off their own initiative - the same as when the plea to help upgrade the servers was put up.

Yes, I'm sad to see this valuable resource going down, if it wasn't for the MYFF team, I wouldn't have a) started a forum (which, to my surprise took off & became popular), b) made as many friends all over the world as I have, and c) met up with some of them & had a good laugh as well.

However, I've always held the opinion that no matter how well things are going, always have a 'backup plan' & once things go pear-shaped, fall back onto the back-up, then formulate a new back-up plan[/quote]

Thanks Gerry.
The backup plan is to move the forum to another server. It can be completed in 2-3 days, with the support from a techie.
I've been offered a free of charge hosting from one of my forum members.
It is also a good opportunity to upload a web site and have the forum there.

But as most admins and users we love myff and apprecite Mratin's support in the past 9 years.

http://happylottyclub.myfreeforum.org/index.php

Gutted when I read this.  I started my little forum, which consists of mainly senior citizens, trying to lose weight  and eat healthily, because it was a free forum.  None of us are well off, and I don't know if I can get any of them to help out.  I've already had a few messages saying, "but we thought the forum was free, now they are asking for money."

I know these things cost money to run, but thought that the bit of income from all the adverts was enough.  I know, I don't know much about these things.  So, I would like to find another free forum, but it would cost me money to take all my info with me!

Sorry, just being terribly confused here not knowing what to do for the best!

Nothing is actually free, either you pay, or the adverts do, or someone is taking the hit for it all.
MYFF  has worked for over a decade, but can't sustain unless something happens.
On the scale of what people pay for take out coffee it would be nothing, but at the moment nothing is what we have and that doesn't pay the rent

Looks like there may be good news on the horizon.

Please if you were abandoning ship, hold off on that for a bit.

I was going to ask a question about moving our forum.

Our ad-free payment runs out next thursday so I was going to ask for a copy of our forum DB this weekend as I cant afford to pay the full fee right now. Should I still hold off for now?

The plan at the moment is to cancel the crowdfunder and so no money will be taken

Thanks for that.  I know nothing is free, but I had thought that perhaps the adverts were paying for the running of the forums.  I dont know much about this sort of thing.  I wouldn't mind paying a subscription of some sort, but we are only a tiny forum, and although I do have 32 members, only about 15 are regularly active.

I hope that whatever you are trying is successful, and look forward to staying here!

I have just donated 50. Further to that, in the near future, although database exports are being offered in exchange for a token donation, my intention is still to pay the original asking price of 60 as I don't want to feel like we're profiting off anybody's bad fortune.

While my community is still moving to vBulletin in the near future regardless, I feel MyFanForum has been an excellent host over the past 5 years; reliable, customizable and one of the very, very few services that actually allow its customers to download the database, should they wish to move on. My donation is in appreciation to you, and in the hopes that other communities are able to benefit in the future as mine has!

I have posted an announcement on my forum encouraging members to donate even a small amount, if they can spare it.

Being one of the Admin that has been very happy with the services of MYFF, and have always been happy to be paid up advert free, I was about to donate, but as of Martins last post I will hold off, but more than happy to help with further donations if needed, or even increase the yearly price, it's damn cheap for what it is anyway. I sincerely hope things work out ok, MYFF has been very good to us.
