RE: The Forum / The Future
Unfortunately I've been unable to make contact recently with Malcolm's nephew, the owner.

I've had the occasional reply to emails to say he will make contact, I have his phone number which is always on answerphone and have left half a dozen messages and have had one text back to say he will ring but he hasn't.

I don't know if, and hope I have not, caused a problem.

I've also swapped emails with the site's original developer.

As far as the site is concerned I have had a look at mybb for the forum software and have taken a look around the public areas of the main site and do not think maintenance will present too much of a challenge, though it will be a lengthy task. Also the queue of new forum applicants is over a year long. However I do not have admin access to tackle either forum or site.

Malcolm's nephew has no understanding of the site maintenance, but the ttwebsite domain name (which the forum sits under) has some value which he wants to sell. The forum itself has no value imho but needs a home to live in. If a new commercial owner buys the domain name ttwebsite, their plans may well not include the forum. I hoped to offer to have a group of us fund the forum in the meantime which should be under £150 per year, thus at least there would be no cost to our owner. The purchase of the ttwebsite domain name is a different one-off matter.

End of June sees the next renewal bill date. I'll await developments now and not pester the owner further.
