As we probably all know by now, this forum will close this June if the "Crowd Funding" project (link at top of page) doesn't raise the money.

Any ideas about how to handle this? This has been a very quiet place of late, and maybe we just do nothing and let it die, or we ... ?

It seems now ForumMini is migrating to a new venue, a new system.

I have no issue with that, but it kind of sucks that we'll lose the ability to play Online Games if we have no dice server.  To that end, this place may be our fallback - IF we can keep MFFF alive.

Thoughts?

I think we "assume" this place doesn't survive, so we have something up our sleeve. If we get to stay, great.

One way to do this, is to look at what we actually "do", and find a new place for it. We may or may not be able to put everything in one place!

online games -> ? vassal ?
discussions -> facebook group, another forum,
cards -> ??

The "other forum" is moving to proboards. What do we want to do? Am sending a pm to our fearless leader.

Okay, I have also sent out a mass email to all our active members.

Honestly at this point, I say move over to the other board.  I think SeasAblaze has filled its purpose...

I think our efforts would bee better spent helping Forumini transition to it's new board.  This board has been very quiet lately, since we completed our deck.  Much of the infighting that made the other board unpleasant for some of us seems to have gone away.

I did not start this thread as a poll, yet that's really what we are doing here. Our choices are to re-create this elsewhere, porting over whatever we want to save, or ... just save whatever we want to the new forumini home.

So far:

Re-create: (0)

Just save: (3)

Well I think this place was a nice neighborhood pub back in the heyday of ForumMini when it was like a College Library over there.  But the community has shrunk, and since we did our deck, this place has been a ghost town...

I know that our team deck is worth saving, and that SWO_Daddy has already moved it over. Much of our other stuff is duplicated on old forum.

Brigs, SWO and I have already moved our cards over.

Not sure what else is worth taking, and I HIGHLY encourage YOU to take over whatever you want to save. (I am doing it post-by-post, I know of no other way.)
