    This is bullshit.

    He obviously doesn't care...and if he does, doesn't have the bullets to fix the problem.

    Is there anyone here that can start another board ?..........that has the interest...time.....smarts....money.......

    No bullshitters please..

    We can move to the Dice Institute. While MP is away it is still up and running in good order

    I'm just your humble racing editor. I don't know DICK about IT shit.

    Why don't we go the email route and individually create distribution lists?

    I ain't blaming Jacob or any of the other Biblical cats.

    Somebody make a decision here.

    I have to assume he has either lost interest in managing the site, has other priorities or simply isn't checking up on the site at all. The only other rationalization is that he can't fix it....ie, money required or technical side.

    Like a leaky roof that keeps getting fixed....leaks again. Frustrating.

    Would be easier to buy this from him. have it hosted in a reputable server company and get some advertisers.

    This all could have something to do with the very poor content introduced by FrebP. Even the robots don't want to read THAT shit. Right Ma'am?

    Buying the board, like Sett suggested, sounds like the best idea.......I just don't think there is anyone here that wants to devote the time and money.....I like the boards format and loose moderation......

    I don't go to any other craps boards and don't know of any without an agenda or where we would fit.......creating a new board sounds like a big undertaking, however, you would have a dedicated group that would hook up.

    I have no problem fronting the money to purchase the forum but I don't have the time to baby sit and do all the technical work. We would need to hire someone and pay monthly fees and that person will take care of things 24*7 and be a full time moderator. I also would like to keep loose moderation but I will draw the lines on multiple IDs and people who get in here just to stir up trouble. We all have differing opinions and can have conversations around this but I would draw a line and everyone would sign a contract when they "re-join" with that understanding.

    Another thought is to provide Jacob the funds to hire someone on a part time / full time basis to do the above. We can all agree to put money in the beer fund (sort of a membership). I don't know how much it costs to hire someone but that's a thought. I am also sure others may have ideas on how to help Jacob instead of ragging on him.

    Jacob is like most everyone else on the forum. He has a life, work, personal problems and this forum. He may have his priorities for now set as so and we shouldn't judge him. Yes he needs to make a decision if he wants to keep this forum going or not and follow thru but calling Jacob gutless and other stuff like eagleeye2 did is a bit harsh.
