    Forum Ownership and Donations

    On 2-16-2017 Paddy gave me ownership of the board to work with her as her health was declining. In late 2018 Paddy's husband John formally gave me the board because Paddy is no longer able to be here at all. There have been posts on the forum about these issues and I'm not rehashing Paddy's health issues or privacy.

    The forum was to close in December of 2018 because there was no money to pay for the server, I was going to close it on 12-16-18 the day before the server bill was due but members asked to be able to donate to keep the forum running. At no time was there a discussion about donating meaning that people who donated owned the forum.

    an act or instance of presenting something as a gift, grant, or contribution.

    a gift, as to a fund; contribution.

    I have no issues with people donating or not donating, the forum can close in the next month.

    Should OUAC close I suggest looking at less expensive options if you want to own and run a board or for example use a facebook group.

    As always, well said Blaize.

    I dont have any IT skills but I do know that you put in hours of work making sure everything runs smoothly and I for one dont ever thank you.

    You do a thankless job with great class.

    While that is no surprise knowing you, I would like to take this opportunity to say a belated and inadequate thank you.

    The payment is due on the 17th of each month.

    Once the invoice is paid a copy is put up in the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] area. The balance in the paypal account is put up there too as is the amount of the donations received.

    All registered members should be able to access the Forum Costs Area.
