Too vague to understand. What are you offering? What is the future?

Not enough members and posts to be profitable, so it's just a labor of love.

I can offer to donate cash if that helps. My time is so limited now. I wish I could do more. This place introduced a lot of men to horology,it also kept a lot of men going. Me included.

It has never been about profit. It is supposed to be about FUN !!!!!!!!!

Least wise that is how I view it.

Hi, folks,

Stephan considered taking over the message board but then thought better of it, so it's a big Thank You to him for offering some kind of rescue.

Thank you to all who have contributed - especially the stalwart members who kept their posts coming in. Without posts, a message board such as this cannot survive.

The board is likely to close down tomorrow (17th January). If anyone wants to share responsibility for this GH message board, you had better make me an offer in the next few hours or it will be Goodbye and Thank You to all.

Glyn,

I am sorry to hear that this place is closing. It was always a great place to post my projects and for a period of time the camaraderie was great. Thank you much for the time we had.

On a side note; What will happen to all the content? Is there a chance we could get a few days to copy some of our own content off that we wish not to lose?

Thanks again for your efforts.

Phil

Today is the last day, Phil. Not sure exactly when Godaddy will pull the plug.
