Old posts won't be moved over?  But that's a big part of the history of who we are.  Will old posts be accessible some other way?

I agree with circuit. The old posts need to be archived somehow.

I think we discussed this earlier, and gan said there will be an archive section of some kind.

Okay, great. I was worried for a second that our mysterious history wouldn't be saved for generations of new GMGers. If we continue with recent trends, we'll have at least -7 members by 2020.

Has there been any decision on who's paying for hosting once Tim's hosting expires?

If they can get $60,000 for a potato salad, surely we can get $60 for a year of hosting.

Or just ask me nicely.
I'll either host you guys if you want, or you guys could finally just merge with another larger forum to get your name out there.

Use the resources presented to you Gan.

You'd take over the GMG?

That sounds like a pretty awesome idea. Fresh management.

You may have noticed that the GMG is still up!

DreamHost has offered a deal of $5/mo for two years, and I decided to renew for one last time. This means that I have decided to extend GMG until May 2017. I think this community has been incredibly vibrant, and I'm excited to keep it alive for a couple more years.

Cheers!
