Forum Funding
As posted elsewhere:

There are funds that need to be raised for the plaque (£100) and forum hosting charges (approx £150 per year) Alfie and I will act as joint auditors on this. I'll use an old unused account of mine for the time being and email statements to Alfie for financial summaries to be checked and posted. I would suggest £10 from members who wish to donate to get the fund started.

If anyone wants to make a donation then please PM me and I'll let you have sort code and account number.

[edit] or PayPal to chris(dot)saville(at)outlook(dot)com

Please do put your forum ID as reference.

RE: Forum Funding
Much to my surprise I still have a Paypal account now, have not used it since FleaBay divorced them.

chris(dot)saville(at)outlook(dot)com

Looks like I will not be charged fees.

Donate away as I don't use the account for anything else.

Please use your forum name as reference for auditing

RE: Forum Funding
Alfie has paid the plaque bill for £100 and I have renewed the forum hosting for £95. We have another bill for £22 to pay for the domain.

We are thus a bit in deficit at the moment, so donations appreciated/

RE: Forum Funding
Many thanks everyone the crisis is over and funding until next March secured. Party1

Hosting paid as attached and I have seen the donation made to the hospice on behalf of the memorial. The domain name will be paid as soon as I receive the invoice. Everybody who has made a donation should see it acknowledged in the first post, post publicly if anything is missing by all means, as we need to remain fully accountable.

I'll take it easier for a few days so as not to strain my eye which is recovering well and then try and get the new owner to indicate his intentions. There are also software difficulties to overcome as it is a very long time since either the forum software or Malcolm's news site software were updated. There is a risk of going out of support in the not too distant future. Attempting to update the software has failed thus far by both myself and the 'experts'.

The hosting was actually due for renewal last march so thanks to YNH Ltd for not pulling the plug for four months and then only as they could not make contact. All admin is now fully understood and properly set up. Just as well I could not go to the Manx!!

In about a month I hope to instigate discussion with financial options on the future.

You're a diamond Chris - I have no idea how to even start to understand this stuff.

I/we are very fortunate you stepped up.

'The last stand of the TTwebsite forum' - I'll be telling my grandchildren I was there :-)

Cheers,

RE: Forum Funding
Thanks Sam, but it's all the members on this forum who are the diamonds. Seems hard to appreciate Malcolm was on the verge of closing it eight years ago due to trolls.

What a team we have thrown together by a love of road racing!!
