Neither Bill or I are able to devote the time and resources the site needs.

Is anyone interested in taking it over?

I'm interested in helping out as well.
I'm plenty computer savvy but have never managed a forum before..

What's the scoop anyways? Pay the yearly fee, update the owners list and approve new members? Stuff like this?

I've also noticed the site is hacked when accessed from mobile. Links to the home page, not the forum, are redirected to a spam advertising site.
I'd like to solve this issue this winter as well.

Thanks for all your hard work over the years Bill and Salty!

Let me know if I can help

I could assist from a technical perspective.
I have current experience with Joomla (manage half a dozen sites) and I see this is a Joomla site. I've just finished upgrading several sites from much older versions to current.

What I don't have time for is updating content or moderating the forum - just not enough hours in the day lol.
