The future of this site...

Postby ezman » Wed Mar 18, 2009 8:43 pm

Hi, is anyone interested in taking over the site. As you may have noticed I'm never on here anymore and the site hasn't been developed, nor will it be in the future.
The domain is up for renewal and I wondered if anyone wanted to run emusonacid and maybe help it grow.
I will help out with the transfer, just need someone dedicated to the cause. I don't want to hand it over and have the site disappear either :mrgreen:

Let me know asap.

I have the wherewithal to take over the running of a resource like this. Please post the details of how the forum is currently served and maintained, and what it costs...

But first I need to find an E-Mu Ultra of some kind to rescue me from (Yamaha) A-series hell! Anyone got a reliable Ultra with rack ears going cheap? ;)

I'm also happy to moderate - what are the rough costs and requirements to manage this site ?

Hi, just want to assure you that this site won't be closing down.
Currently it doesn't cost much at all to run - it's not the cash, it's the time! I don't have any. The site needs an upgrade of the forum software.
I'm away on holiday right now but will be right back on my return to work out a way forward.
Thanks for the offers of assistance.

is there a way to download the text content of the site for searching purposes? i would hate to have a resource like this be unavailable to future owners with questions...

perhaps the management of the site can be handed to a bunch of us as a committee - there seem to be few of us happy to pitch in and I'd be happy to chuck in cash if needed to keep this alive - its invaluable.

I can also offer services in the form of time or administration or funding or whatever is needed really. The resource is priceless really.

Hi, I can help you upgrade your software. I am a professional but can do it for free. Contact me.

Great site! I used to have a dance planet 909 V2. Looking now at authoring roms for a command station.

Standing up to the challenge

Postby palpullero » Sun Mar 29, 2009 9:38 pm

I would be also glad to take over the site. I already have started doing some research projects to help the EMUOA community. If you are interested, let me know.

I can offer web space if needed, we have a server colocated at Rapidswitch. DOn't know how much of a hassle it will be to move over though
Sounds Delicious...
