View original postA week ago I had very little desire but every intention of closing down RAFO. Since then I have received an unsolicited but welcome offer to cover the bulk of the hosting charges over the next year.


View original postI admit to being torn. On one hand, this site, the community, and its links to a gloriously Wotmaniac past are something I hold dear and have no wish to see consigned to the great 404 page in the sky. On the other hand, I've been covering the hosting charges myself for the past 3-4 years and can't really afford to continue doing so. And I certainly don't have the time to spend nurturing the site into the thriving forum I once dreamt it could be.


View original postI have already received statements of support in the form of several premium accounts being purchased, and it's gratifying to see people put their money where their mouth is, so to speak.


View original postSo here's your chance to have a say. Has RAFO had its day, and should it be put our to pasture? Or is there life in the old dog yet?


View original postI should be clear - if I do decide to shut the site down now, as opposed to a years time, anyone who has so far purchased a premium account will be as fully refunded as paypal allows me to do so without incurring charges.
