    I have a patreon that covers my anime project... It already funds 2 servers and cloud storage. I would be more than happy to pick up another server to manage will be $50-60/month I forget the CPU but 32gb ram 2 x 2tb hard drive space... 1gbit unmetered.

    You're suggesting putting money into this site?

    That's a worse proposition than funding an indiegogo campaign.

    No I'm suggesting moving the site to a server with a unmetered dedicated 1gbit connection with a flat monthly rate that can be community funded via patreon.

    Honestly, you're wasting your time - multiple people have attempted to buy this forum off Kevin, but he has apparently has no interest in selling it. Since he also apparently has no interest in running it, it's just going to slowly rot.

    Which is a pity.

    Why are you suggesting that here in Site Help and Suggestions? It has nothing to do with the site. Or are you deluded enough to think it could?

    This. Think of whatever solutions you want, it ain't happening. You have a better chance of convincing a wall to move out of your way.

    Not to mention, apart from people generously donating in the past, why on earth would they pay $60 a month for someone else to run a site for them when the site was previously completely free?

    Not to mention, who would be even trusted enough to take it over? You? I've never heard of you. It's like me saying I'll take over the site. Why would someone just trust it?

    It's also not like paying every month stops you from being banned without a moments notice or the site suddenly just going away, etc.

    So yeah, heart may be in the right place, but it's a shit idea. Sorry.

    I know I was a bit naive to think the stragglers that have not left this forum would even consider it... BUT NOTHING IS FREE... hell even if I had a Local 1gbit connection and a spare machine to run the forum on. still have to cover electric and yearly maintenance. plus i never said I would take over the site... just move it to a more affordable server. Also helping locate more affordable HELP... because running cost of this place should have never went over $80/month.... and 100 people out of thousands should have been able to donate $1/month....

    YES saving this forum from falling into oblivion wont make its community better... There would have to be allot of clean up... But its fucking pathetic How little Pride you have for something that has such great history... Assemblergames was a Damn icon to the gaming community... was FUCKING NEWS worthy.. and that isn't me talking it up. less than 4 years ago this place was praised on TV for saving so many games from being just forgotten code.

    To watch it just go into the Night without a real fight.... Show how much YOU and other Members who been here longer really cared about it... To the People of OG... didnt know about you guys till after my thread was made... I think its great what you guys are doing.... Just wished could have saved this instead of migrating everyone.

    If you think that there hasn't been a fight, you are either oblivious or naive. And I'm being polite.

    Exactly, it's pretty ignorant to think nothing has even been tried, PLENTIFUL times, by a multitude of very capable people, at various points in time over the years.

    And the money, lol. When it was asked for, it was met with serious generosity from the community. Don't even go there.

    That's why this place needs to sink.

    The users had to band together and save the community and the mindset.

    There's no one in charge here. There's no mod team. There's no admins. No leader.

    Nah, it's the fault of the users, clearly. We all didn't help, we just "fled" to pastures greener, according to the OP over on OG.

    The main issue here is the blame of the users, which is completely unjustified.

    Other than that it's just yet another crap idea in general, and it's about time to move on.
