All,

I'm seriously thinking of getting rid of my AWS server due to the lack of participation in the forums I facilitate. Use it or lose it, your choice.

There are 66 members here and less than a handful post anything. Even Charles has gone MIA. I don't mind donating my time to keep these forums running but $75 a month out of my retirement is asking too much when nobody participates.

It was $130.00 a month (for years) until I deleted a few idle instances I didn't know I was being charged for.

@John
that's too much money coming out your pocket and no return on your investment, I say close it.

Your domain was on the for sale block recently and if you're only paying $3, what happened.

My point was if no one wishes to contribute to the forums any longer, why host them at all other then for archival purposes?

I feel like I put food on the table and everyone just watches it rot.

Oxygen basic board on JoseRoca forum is still valid..right?
And can be used for posting.
Also there is github with issues board.
I don't know is there a sourceForge o2 board?
And also i can open o2 board on my ucoz.site...
so still left lot of options...i think... ::)

 John price has nothing to do with forgetting to renew it. There is no need to throw
missjudgements, a simple no would suffice.

 Wherever Charles decides to host it, ill follow.

I probably won't be making a decision on my server and hosting forums until the first of the year. A lot depends where the pandemic takes us.

You can see here where the pandemic will take us:

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

I am following the data since the beginning of March, and I suppose if no miracle happens, then the result will be the same as after the Spanish flu. So much progress has been made in medicine since 1918, but nobody expected this lousy catastrophic leadership and support. Many of these fatalities could have been avoided. And at the moment it seems this is only the beginning. In the United States they expect that there soon could be 100000 new cases per day (and probably many additional deaths per day). This will have an impact to the rest of the world too, and for me it is really scary. And there has not yet been a second wave.
