    Cost is irrelevant. The advertising for the forum pays for itself.

    Neither Adam or I have the time for it anymore.

    New chapters in our lives and time to move on.

    Shame to hear guys. Understand forums take a lot of time to manage. With families, it just becomes impossible.

    I agree with chris_r, in that forums are much better than the usual farcebook groups, which are more suited to kids with ADD who forget what was even posted 2-days ago!

    When our Proton forum wrapped up, we lost an endless amount of info, ideas, and how-to's.

    @poita , as a guide for anyone considering taking on the forums, how much time would you spend each week/month managing the forums?

    Usually it's no more than an hour a night. This involves moderating new user sign ups, approving For Sale posts, approving image attachments, reading emails

    When events are on, ie WTAC and someone is there or possible to watch we tweet/facebook updates.

    When the forum needs to be updated/backed up it can jump up to 3-4 hours. Most of this time is changing files and upload/download (I only have shitty 5mb internet)

    only about 8 more months or so before shut-down. Would be a real pity is no-one picks this up. Click here to enlarge I don't have the skills (nor the time) to do it but surely someone on here does and would like to continue the forum.

    I've probably got enough experience, but with family commitments lack the time.......

    So will put an offer out there...... If someone takes on the ownership & running, I'm happy to give 2-3hrs a week to help. It would generally be late night, after kids are fed & bed.

    The deadline has been brought forward to the end of financial year.

    This now means JUNE 30TH is it.

    One of my other projects has grown a little quicker than anticipated and I have zero time to spend on the forum now. So roughly 4 months.

    For all those umming and arrring about it, if you are serious now is the time to act.

    I have limited internet access until the end of the month, fuk you NBN.

    So email me directly poita18 at gmail dot com.
    Subject line, OpelAus Forum Sale Enquiry.

    Cheers
