The BIG Question - One More Year of RAFO? or Anonymous2000 Send a noteboard - 14/02/2017 03:38:47 AM

I have been very torn over the past month about asking this, because I can see both sides of the argument. But if I don't, I will likely regret it. So here goes:

(PENDING APPROVAL FROM NEB/BEN of course)

Should we give RAFO one more chance or let it pass into the Internet goodnight?

I notebooked with Neb/Ben last month about the cost of running the RAFO server for the next year. I am willing to cover this if we can commit to the following:

  1. We get 25 users to sign up for a $20 premium account. This would give Neb/Ben some financial elbow room and perhaps he can try to advertise the site to get more folks involved.

  2. Please come to RAFO on a regular basis (perhaps once a week). There are so many great users and we all enjoy the threads and discussions.

That's it. So with 2 weeks to go, this is an honest question. What doesn't everyone want to do? As I said above, I can see both sides of the argument, but what the hell. It doesn't hurt to ask, right?

Best wishes,
Ed

I'd be willing enough to pay for a premium account again, but not sure it would help at this point. - 15/02/2017 08:18:47 PM 52 Views
Me too. I almost renewed mine last week by reflex. *NM* - 15/02/2017 11:20:14 PM 33 Views
