The goal is for the site to be taken over and hosted by APS, so that this can never happen again if one individual person has control.
I'd just like to add my .02 on this.
mick_vt is making a very generous offer. Why not be proactive instead of reactive. TMF has been a bit hit and miss the past couple weeks and this past Easter weekend a complete nightmare. You could barely load a page before it crashed with the next left click and that was if you could load it in the first place.
Let's think about one thing for a minute. The inevitable will eventually happen. Or is it already happening and we're starting to see it now? Let's say this site does crash (pause to think it thru for a minute) All data on here will be lost. All posts, pictures, links, the people you were in contact with and could you reach them again and how?
Maybe it's time to take action and get another updated and supported site active before the above scenario comes into play. IF this were to happen would APS want to look after and host it? I would think it could only help build their membership.
If a new and updated site is set up and taken on by APS, no one would have a monopoly on this site and what we are facing right now would be less at risk of ever happening again.
Again, just my opinion. But I'm always willing to listen to others ideas.
