The unfortunate end of an era

Post by Lord Hypno »

Unfortunately my hosting company has decided to raise their rates by a thousand percent it's gone from $60 a year to $600 a year and I'm no longer willing to pay that so unless someone wants to host the board and Take Over Control it looks like this is going to disappear sadly

Holy crap. That is an insane price hike.

I wouldn't mind throwing in a twenty if we could somehow wrangle up other donators.

omg thats a crazy price increase. I am willing to donate as well, but cant do the whole amount. Maybe we should think about other options for a new home? Just do discord?

Any suggestions?

Yeah, so many active users on here. It won't be hard to raise the money to keep it going. It seems live moving it will be tough since we might lose the massive archive that's here of old posts. Count me in to donate.

Hey LH, that really sucks dude. I might be able to take over the board, but I'd like to go over the technical details to move it to a new home, I sent you a DM on Discord, let's talk and see what we can do.

Moving the whole thing to Discord seems like a good option. Not sure if we could archive the back posts, but at least have that going forward.

Even if your not active on Discord, it might be a good idea for everyone to join just in case. lol

Ah, this kind of news brings back memories! I remember having a few fund collections for the LMC forums!
I'm willing to donate to keep this site running. Where is it currently hosted?

EDIT: Nevermind, I remembered where. Seeing the price increase is shocking. Sounds like they want to evict small sites. If someone were willing to take on the migration, $60/yr on Linode might be suitable.

Sad notice,

I volunteer to make the moving to Linode, DigitalOcean or OVH, all of them offer plans that fall on the 60USD/year, also willing to donate to make it happen (may have some credit on Linode from last consulting job)...

It's an outrageous change in hosting price...

So heartbroken to hear about this. I've been coming to this forum since 2005 when i was still a teen.
Discord has always been a site that I've had trouble navigating. I guess its time i learn more about it.


What about the MC forum (mcforum.net)?? Is it possible they can help us. Maybe they can create a couple of sub threads for us?
