Possible demise of The Sea Slug Forum

Never new it existed.
Wonder if one could copy the SQL database and set up a simple phpBB forum for them.

I've joined others in urging Bill to set up some way in which we can contribute monetarily. It would be a good way to say "thank you" for all the help we've received. Even if people didn't know it existed before today they've benefited from the SSF. That's where I, Marli, and many of the others who chime in with IDs for your photos get our information. Think about it - how many of us have spent hundreds of dollars on guide books? Make that thousands for some people. And certainly thousands for the gear to take all those nudi photos needing IDs! We can certainly afford to send Bill a few bucks to express our gratitude and help keep the Forum going.

Bill hasn't written back. All I can do is make the offer. If they want to keep the site running stand-alone, they will need to get off of custom software and change their format to fit one of the free + easy content management systems out there.
Excellent Eric! Too much data is already inaccessible and it would be great for this to be kept running. Perhaps it might be possible to seek some sort of sponsorship?
