I don't have an answer. None of the other Admins are very active at the moment and quite honestly...I haven't been as active as I have been partly due to the fact that I don't know where CGR is heading. All of the things we discussed with Pauler a couple of years ago haven't come to pass and at this point I don't know that they will. A lot of folks have had major life changes take place over the last few years so that is not surprising.

If I had the money I would offer to buy CGR outright but I don't have it. I don't know what else to do. Pauler is still the owner and until/unless that changes we cannot make any major changes.

Here's a question. I know that the new versions of vBulletin have Cloud Hosting. What would be the pros and cons of that?

CGR would probably be generally be faster with less downtime and it'd be VB's problem to deal with outages and what not.

The downside would be potential ongoing costs, and the risk of such an old database not liking the upgrade process and losing data (but presumably VB would also assist with that and have an upgrade path).

FWIW...I have texted Pauler with some of my concerns.

This this this. Cloud hosting would be fantastic. Plus then "paid members" would actually be making a difference in contributing to the continuance of the forum.

Just a heads up. The current Admin staff is actively discussing the issue. I have been in touch with Pauler. Hopefully we can finalize something soon.
