This forum personally costs me about $35 per month to run currently which is increasing as the volume of email messages and bandwidth increases. I am no longer able to justify spending this every month for a number of reasons.
I’m not looking to profit from this site - I just want it to be self-sufficient.
To that end, I have set up a Patron page with a clear goal of how much the site costs per month to run and how much money has been pledged.
If we’re not able to reach the required monthly goal then I’m afraid I will either have to shut down the forum or, alternatively, I’m very happy for someone else to take over managing the server, paying the hosting fees, etc. If you are keen to take over then either reply to this topic, email me or send a private message.
I think this forum is a valuable part of the Xojo community and I hope others agree.
