IMPORTANT - Future of the forum
« on: June 27, 2018, 09:10:09 PM »
Hey there,
I am thinking of giving this forum into other hands. This means: If anyone is interested in hosting our board, please contact me via PM.

Ideally you can host this forum on your own webspace with your own domain. The content of the forum could be transferred via a dump of the database.

You need. SMF Forum software (php, mysql)

Kind regards,
turnaround

Hi there, are you selling the site? Or just "passing it" to someone who can keep it running?

Can you access this page?  :)

Then you get an idea.

I want the forum to be continued. But I don't want to host it anymore on my own webspace as I plan to cancel my subscription.

The costs each year are around 40 Euros so not that much.

Nice numbers.
You could add a little of adsense and get these 40 Euros, why unsubscribe?
Or you just sick of responsibility?

New laws and regulations in Europe that make it really difficult to host a site in Germany these days. It's really not about the money.

So to avoid those laws the site should change url from a German domain .de to something else, and the owner should be not an eu citizen?

The site should be compliant to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation

And I think we need a https certificate too.

There are    law firms who try to sue you because people pretend to have "personal distress" when a site has no https (no joke)

What a nice way to overcomplicate things.
