New Site Details


Recommended Posts

Hi -


For those of you who are unaware of the new changes to the site, this news announcement should help! Regular forum visitors may well have read most of what follows:


As many of you will have read in various conversations in this forum, we have no source of funding to maintain and develop this site and community. For the last year and a half we have made approaches for funding to local and national government departments, and also to charitable organisations such as the CfBT, various lottery bodies and others. All these efforts drew a blank, and as the site membership developed and the cost of maintaining and developing the site grew, we made the decision that its future was best secured by establishing it as a subscription based site.


The main part of this change is now in place, as detailed below:

  • The site and forum will be much more closely integrated, with navigation between articles and forum available at all times
  • All conversations will still be available, and your current profiles will remain untouched
  • You can upgrade your membership to a full subscription by going to this page. The procedure is simple and secure, and you can pay either by credit/debit card, or sending a cheque by post
  • The cost of a year's membership is £20
  • To help members make the transition you will still have the same forum posting rights as you do currently for a month after the change
  • There will be a number of new articles available to full subscribers, in addition to those currently available
  • Many more articles are planned, along with other resources
  • Should we ever make the decision to close down the forum, we guarantee it's availability for at least a year from the last subscription fee we take - the hosting of the service is already paid!
  • You can read more about the changes by visiting this page

A topic is available here for discussion of these changes.


Best wishes,

Steve. :)
