I am in the process of "brokering" a shift in management that may provide a Pavlina Lifeboat for those who can't find a new forum. It is my old forum, and it is seldom used. The webmaster has expressed that he is no longer interested in the site. I'll keep people posted about the results. If I become Administrator, I would approve most anyone, and it would be up to forum members to self-moderate.
In other words, orphans could take that old house and fix it up themselves. It would require no membership fees or donations.
