My members and I are wondering what happens to a forum after we stop making payments for the free-ad service. Some of them are afraid that you will delete the forums. Please let me know so I can tell my users.
Its two years since we offered free forums. The advertising market never recovered and some companies screwed us royally. If we didn't move over to a paid service we wouldn't have been able to support the free (or otherwise) forums at all. I'm not a monster either. For our long term users (which you are) I'm sure I could find some other solution if you couldn't afford to pay for your forum anymore.
Padriac my friend, I would NEVER consider you a monster, afterall your help and support has been nothing but first class. I think many forget that the services you offer are a priviledge, so thankyou my friend.
