Mine shows it's paid up, but honestly I'm not sure that's right. I recall being out of town and trying to address this. I paid for some arrears and got a 2 year deal, but that was a while ago.

I'd like to know if this issue would be solved if we were simply more diligent in collecting dues.

Not to sound uncaring, but if $25.00 is paid and the site still shuts down on 4/1, it seems a $25.00 waste.

Oh, I hear ya alright.

But since I am not capable of taking over the main responsibilities for the forum operation... buying a barn stall is all I can do to show support at the moment.

Here is what we received recently

Quote:
OK folks the time has come for me to do something with The Barn. I cannot support the cost of maintaining this site any longer. Between now and the end of the month I will entertain any reasonable offer for the site. If, I do not receive any offers or cannot work out a plan to keep this place going I will be shutting it down on April 1, 2018. You can contact me at [email protected] with any offers or suggestions.
Gary has been overly generous for the past years by giving us this site to be for the shenanigans we were all known for and banished because of. We are kinda like the land of misfit toys.

I know there are some people talking about solutions offline as well as some open discussions right here in the other thread.

I hope that Gary does not mind that I shared this post from him, but at this stage I want to make sure that if we want this place to remain, then we need to all step up and work together on a solution.
