FUTURE OF ELLGAB
« on: July 10, 2018, 07:51:24 AM »
Since this seems to be the new home I decided to pass off the running of the site to people more qualified to run it than I am.

What does this mean for you?
Not much. They will not be changing anything. I still own it and have final say in any changes. They will be taking care of the technical side of keeping it running. There are a few technical issues that need to be fixed and I do not have the time to figure them out. This board needs a functioning mail system so that people can recover passwords. It also needs scheduled daily database backups. Other issues are sure to happen and I would rather have someone qualified taking care of it.

This is all server side stuff. The actual moderation, look and the feel of the board will remain as is, for better or for worse. I  will also have them take care of BartEllLegacy.com and KingdomOfNyeRadio.com - both of which have been on a free host up until now.

In exchange for this service I am allowing them to place their own advertising on the site. Again, this will be in the same spots you have already seen ads in and there will be no pop-ups or pop-unders or pop-anywheres. 2-3 simple banner ads on the main page, served by Adsense or another reputable company. If the ads generate anything above and beyond the monthly operating costs they will forward the balance to me and I will donate it to a worthy cause. 100% of the July revenue will still be donated to Second Harvest Heartland.

I'm good, as long as you are still King of the Castle, and hang around with us as usual and stuff.

Heck, maybe you can even hang around with us more, now that you have people to handle the techy stuff.  :)

That's the plan.
I have very little love or patience for the tech stuff.
I would rather stick to creative nonsense.
