Hi! We are in the final stages of the SRK forum migration. Soon, we will lock the forums so we can transfer over all the discussion threads. Please expect a downtime of a few days while we implement the migration. Thx for your patience.

    I have been looking on cloud servers for this purpose as well.
    My main worry is how much bandwidth the forums would use monthly.

    If you go through with it, I would be glad to help.

    I'm in with anyway I can. Discord is just a temporary stop gap anyway.

    I like discord but only for real time communication, and that's it. Reddit is a a disorganized bootlegged forum, great for showcasing what is popular and the latest news but you can't use effectively when you want to archive important indepth information, neither is that information easily found either.

    So yes, i would love to see a new forum where we can seek refuge.

    Can your servers handle the load of all these guys and their waifus?

    SRK itself has had a ton of downtime thru the changes and breaking apart where we were all scared and didn't know why it was happening.

    I'm definitely willing to help out. I was looking into premium options at Zetaboards since it was so barebones.

    What are the premium options?

    I was also thinking about it and I'm thinking that the free version probably doesn't have a lot of storage capacity. I don't know if that can increase with the premium version.

    I am curious to see where the talks about migration end up though.

    If there is a way to just move everything to somewhere else and/or maybe have someone else in charge of SRK that would be great. I'd hate to see all of the old posts disappear.

    At work. I'd have to look it up. IIRC they didn't seem substantial.

    You could ask for a joining fee to start off with a good note. I don't have a clue on the cost of running boards but I'd think most ppl here could chip in 10 bucks to join

    I would like to show some support too (Senior Software Developer for a couple of years). No ads and already paid hosting is a humble offer, but I don't believe that you can sustain that while maintaining the performance / uptime of the current board :/ There is a reason for vanilla to charge the prices they do, even if you cut out their profits. @Jasen Hicks if you need more manpower, count me in!

    Thanks! I don't want to hijack this thread but I am willing to listen to everyone's proposals and recommendations if SRK folks are willing to let me assume the forums and migrate over. I have a few discussion points with MrWiz and he said he'd take them back to the SRK team for discussion on their end.

    I have experience running a few large boards for other hobbies I have and a few folks that have jumped in to help me out with extensive IT experience that compliments my own very well; additionally, they are fellow SRK members who also enjoy the forums and want to see them continue. If it all works out we can maintain the information, migrate it over, and have it all up in a well controlled, managed environment with little to no down time and hopefully some improvements that everyone will enjoy.

    In the end, no help will go unused and I want to have the community help as much as possible. I have the funding and resources setup and in place to make it all happen but will have some various aspects I can use help with such as moderation, updates, themeing, etc.

    You came. :heart:

    We definitely need to save some tech here, even if we can't save whole threads. Do we have a successor yet, or is the Zetaboards' forum the only one?

    Likewise here. I'd rather keep SRK alive, maybe reverting to the older forum format (bring back animated avatars), but if it's a new forum or nothing at all, then sure.

    I think vanilla open source would probably be the easiest option if we can get an archive before the places goes we can see about rehosting it to lower cost then see about adding some new premium memberships.

    We also don't lose the current srk and can go in and trim the fat as we go.

    They did put out an official statement: forums are doneso at the end of the month.

    Instead of being able to talk to anybody who knows anything we get vague comments and no facts. So SRK upper management stays the same.

    The Cannons have done a lot so I sure as hell aint gonna ask them to do more or assume any ill from their decision, but there is a community that deserved a shot at saving themselves if only for the fact that the user base helped solidify things.

    Right now it feels half assed: the part most users like is leaving and then the clickcoin miner keeps on living.

    +1 for willing to pay for a premium membership or at least surf the forum with my ad blocker off if that's what it takes.

    For those digging the Discord thing, is there a discord plugin that we could have on-site that would provide real time chat options or would that kind of defeat the purpose of having the forum in the first place?

    I've got plenty of resources. If you guys don't want to give up and use reddit/discord then please post in this thread. If interest is high enough I'll try to have a new board set up by the end of the week! Please post feature requests also -- I'll be shopping for appropriate forum software.

    If it has Animated Avatars and Steel Blue, you have a strong case.

    I miss those days..
    I'm definitely interested in seeing to forum live on.
