I am in dialogue with the host ATM, I am not happy about the quoted server price for reasons outside of the forum. Once I know for certain what the price is to stay here for another year I will post here.

The other thing I would like to state is that I am more than happy to continue with the forum. Just not fund it.

I am an occasional poster and a reasonably regular reader.

I have learnt a fair bit from the forum and would like it to keep going, and will try and contribute to the running of it again in the future.

As an additional note the SSL certificate has expired, it might be worth looking to see if the platform supports Lets Encrypt as that would stop this from happening and would reduce one cost as it is free

Christel if you don't mind sharing, how much are you paying for hosting?

I host some other small sites on servers I have (although I am not a web host), I may be able to help if you can send me some details.

Hi All,
I must say it is sad to read it may come to an end but i am unsurprised.

I have been on this site for a while under this user name and a previous one I lost the details for and must say everyone has always been very helpful as well as supportive.

The problem that I see is that sadly folk struggle to have time for forums due to work and family life, we appear to work more hours now sadly and let's address the elephant in the room that uk shooting sports is dying, this I feel is by design.

I'd be interested to see what the average age is for forum users here, sadly we are dinosaurs.

If we get a funding target I'd happily chip in to help achieve another year or two but let's be honest the end appears to be in sight.

Well what can I say?
After 63 years of shooting I am considered unworthy to hold an FAC nor SGC courtesy of lies and corruption by the boys (and girls) in blue.
More and more good shooters are losing their licences for various reasons and the Police have deep pockets if you go to court (I am £20,000 down due to legal fees)
It is plain to see that the shooting sports are in terminal decline, I am very sad to say! The politicians and the Establishment hate us and that is plain to see.
The forum reflects this state of affairs and is in its' declining years.
I will continue to contribute out of loyalty however as I have made some friends on here,

If 50% of readers could be persuaded to donate, how much would each need to pay?

I'm probably amongst those who count in the get enough posts to use buy and sell, I've probably posted once or twice otherwise. Generally everything I've wanted to ask can be found and I don't really have anything to add on other threads. The forum doesn't really lend itself to posting in the same way as FB, I rarely look in here as a result unless it's something I think I'm likely to find an answer on here.

My suggestion would be to just charge everyone a couple of quid for access to the buy and sell and use that to pay for the forum or archive it for reference.
