Can anyone tell me how I can get in touch with Naru? He hasn't been online in months. Maybe somebody here knows his e-mail address.

I used the private email address system to send an email, asking him/her to contact you.

Well, gee, I thought it was COMPLICATED!  What does it require AFTER the orgy?

Collect all the excess bodily fluids in about two buckets. Then hand them over to Charlie sheen. He takes care of the rest, I am told.

Sorry bro.  We don't know you.  This site has been around for 15 years.  Not going to be handing the site over to someone we don't know.

Out of curiosity, do you want to shut it down or pass it on?  If "shut it down", that seems hard on the regular participants who know each other and would miss familiar company.  If "pass it on", I certainly agree it should move to a few people who are actually atheists and want it to continue in that general way. 

I suppose the question is whether you want to "pass it on".  I hope you will.  I cherish this site.  I know I don't visit every day, but that is because when I get on, I stay on all night.

If I understand this correctly, a site like this needs financial support, computer expertise, and a few talented Moderators.  What if some people agreed to provide what the site needed to continue?  Would you all be willing to pass along what you no longer wish to maintain to those who do?

I can provide financial support and space to keep the site running.  I may not have the computer skills to manage it, but maybe some other participants do.  Will you give a new group a chance?  Suppose I could organize such a group.  Would you allow the possibility?

I really, really like the balance of this site.  It is neither an angry place nor a serious formal debate site.  It fits me perfectly and I want it to continue.

I see your point, but the problem is that no one else has volunteered to take over the management of the site so far. Are you planning to shut down the site rather than hand the reigns to someone you don't know?

Given the nature of the material, I would say ... yes?  This isn't just another Amazon shopping site.

I'd like for this site to remain up after 2020. It's just; what does it take?

Assuming Wolf and Naru are going to give the place back as opposed to selling it then I don't think financing is going to be an issue. There are at least a couple who have volunteered to pony up enough to keep the place running at least on a minimal level. i.e. no expensive hosts.

We just need someone to step up and volunteer to administer the place.

You need computer skills to administer, don't you?

My only experience in forumboards is from zetaboards back in 2006-07. I'm not familiar with SMF boards.

Well, I stepped up and volunteered but apparently I'm not suitable because people "don't know me."
