So, we're back after over two months of downtime! Glad to see the place back up, but I think we should discuss this in case it occurs again.
In regards to financial problems. As was discussed on the Skype group chat, some members would actually be willing to assist the site financially if it went down due to payment issues. Obviously not everyone has an income to do so, but a few of us are willing and able.
This would be easier to negotiate with more communication between members, I think. I don't think the forum's owner is on the Skype chat, and they don't seem to respond to e-mails. I'm not even totally sure who it is that runs this place. Also, it seems not everyone is aware that there is a Facebook page, where some updates were posted.
I'm wondering if we could make a plan for any future downtime, in which we can more readily communicate with the owners and the host service, if there's payment issues to be resolved? I'd hate to see this site go down again and not be able to offer any help.
