For now w'ere still here!

Hello everyone, the B&F board is about to shut down soon.

The powers that be are about to stop funding this message board so in few weeks thats it for B&F.

Right now Dom is checking the possibility of keeping the board running, in the same format or in a new & improved form.

Since the label isn't active anymore someone else will have to pay for web services so we need to check how many people are interested in donating the funds needed, if at all.

Please vote.

Lets go peoples
VOTE!
otherwise this place is going to close

Even though I am an infrequent contributor, and not that knowledgable, I have been a member since 2009 and find this place to be an invaluable source of information.
Surely a small yearly fee to keep this place running is the least that reggae aficionados can do

I guess knowing more or less the amount needed would be crucial to elaborate a strategy.

I agree - it would be helpful to know what the running costs are.

I would rather give money to keep boards like this alive than handing over my hobbies to facebook.

Is anyone backing up the database at least? It would be good to know that all the info is backed up in case the board has to be taken down.

If "Me" was charged by the word no one else would have to contribute!

Contribute, that's rich, why don't you look at the "read" column versus the "commented" column and you'll see most people seem to prefer reading away and can't be bothered to, oh I don't know, share a f*cccking thought to keep things a bit more lively. They used to but maybe us regular folk don't command the same type of respect as some of the old contingent with more credentials used to. So sorry I can't provide you with a matrix number or some oh so interesting story about some old fart's glory days that no one would give a toss about if they weren't talking about some famous musician. Not too much different than all those Kardashian "fans" I suppose but we think ours is better because god knows why, same starf*ckery if you ask me but no one is asking me because I'm just me, an opinionated bloke who's more questioned about his opinionatedness than the actual opinion most of the time.

At least I try and give the people something to read, you know on a message board where WORDS are the only thing they consist of...unless of course it's pictures you need, in which case go virtually anywhere else on the internet and look away at all the pretty colors like we did when we were smaller in size, and thought.

You can bill me for the words, I'll just go fetch my crayon to sign the check.


Agreed, need to know the price to keep the place running and ease of payment is important as well.
