What I want is for multiple people to have access to everything: the forum software, the server, and the domain. That way, if you and I disappear, snippsat or whoever is left can still have full control of forums. If you're comfortable with giving other people access to that server, I'm fine with pointing there. But that looks to be your personal server. If you don't want to give access to your personal server, I'm willing to set up another account at webfaction or wherever that can be a community account, and I'm willing to pay for the first year of hosting. My plan with the domain is to see if I can shift them into another name cheap account, and then give access to that account to a couple of the other mods.

We don't need to catch everyone during the transition time, we just need to wind down the current posts. When we lock down the forum, we will lock it down in a way that makes it as clear as possible that the forums have moved. Then anyone who comes irregularly will still be able to find us. And presumably all the threads will still be here until taos realizes what's up and closes down the server.
