    Forum Changes

    For the past couple of months we've been preparing, behind the scenes, to separate the forums from the New Road Map Foundation. This is taking place because, unfortunately, New Road Map is preparing to dissolve as a Non-Profit and will probably cease to exist by the end of the year.

    In an effort to keep these forums afloat, they have been spun off as an independent entity. The Domain name and hosting contract have been re-assigned to myself, acting as a volunteer custodian.

    Over the next week or so, members will begin to see a few minor modifications to the site such as changes to the logo at the top and bottom of each page, edits to FAQ's referencing New Road Map and a re-ordering of forums dealing with New Road Map's Financial Integrity program. Other than that, the forums will continue on as they always have, for as long as they have the support of our community.

    I'd like to personally thank Rozie and her team at New Road Map for rescuing us nearly 4 years ago and allowing us to continue, not only during that period, but going forward as well.

    This is interesting to read and important as well. SL and these forums are valuable for sharing ideas and discussions of every sort. Thanks for all the efforts taken.

    My thanks, too, Alan, for taking this on. If I can help with anything, please PM me.

    and speaking for myself, when this happens and we will know the fees needed to keep going, I wouldn't mind seeing a reminder for a donation.
