Hello and welcome to all you weary wandering nomads.
It's good to see so many of you back with us.

Strange as it may seem I missed the forum, which was a good enough reason to set up a replacement.

Thank you to the many of you who have posted or PMed offering donations towards the cost of setting this up, the cost of the domain name for 2 years and hosting for 1 year only came to £65.99 which I was happy to pay.(It's worth it for the entertainment value of the forum).

We need to think carefully before setting up a donation scheme as judging by the number of you offering to contribute we would likely end up with a surplus, so we would need to consider in advance what would happen to surplus funds in this case.

Well done Dam and co .......... You have done a great job and YES I too missed the forum over the few days it was off line. Whatever you decide to do regards finance is okay with me. IF everyone put in £100 you could take out what it cost you and send the balance to me.
Okay. I know

Sorry Cap'n, It's not going to work that way,

This forum in all its guises has been free to access for anyone and It's staying that way.

If we do set it up so folks can donate it will be purely voluntary.

I agree with you DAM ref free access
I would suggest a donation, and any extra from your initial outlay could go to a charity as suggested maybe NABD, or Help for Heroes or whatever
