Fear not. Aside from my initial post and this one, I'm afraid of the potential excessive drain on bandwidth a knitting discussion might generate on this site so I feel it's in the site's best interest for me to not encourage others.............

59° Its 24° here and there are patches of ice on the streets and a bitter cold wind blowing.
The KLR is parked in the man cave until next march at the earliest. I bought my first KLR a 2008 in August 2017
I liked it so much that I traded it on a new 2017. It was late in the season and the dealer made me an offer I could not refuse.

After purchasing a KLR I discovered this site and the .net site. I found myself lurking here a lot more often than the other site, I'm not sure why.
I found a lot of good info on both sites.
Requiring a paid subscription to the .net site will greatly reduce the traffic. It might be a mistake.

I’m envious. It was hanging around 30 here, the bikes are all packed away.

This is probably true.

This might not be true.

Putting any and all issues aside and looking at it objectively, to single-handedly run a large, active forum is an incredible amount of work. Unless you are doing it as a labor of love you have a right to expect to be compensated for that work, especially if you are a working man.

If the financial return is not there to make the effort worth your while, then perhaps the best thing to do is to set it up as a subscription-based service and let it run while you pursue other things that will pay the bills. If it works, great, if it doesn't then you re-evaluate when the domain and server renewal bills come due.

Would it be a loss to the community if it goes down? Yes, most assuredly. Hopefully, if it comes to that perhaps a way will be found to preserve the history that is there. KLRWorld was once a huge resource, but all was lost in a server crash. It never came back, really, and is now down for good. It was an unrecoverable loss. Quite unfortunate.

Some decisions are hard and gut-wrenching to have to make, but business is business.
