Maybe
Maybe the only way to keep this going is to let the website she shares ownership to fail. Then come back with another that Mark owns entirely. That is a lot of work and he may not be mentally up to it right now. We really don't know if the site is profitable enough to continue. It will all get sorted out. Best of wishes to Mark.

His attorney is probably furious at him for what he said already. I am pretty sure the advertisers would follow too if the users disappeared. I don't know if we are helping or hurting his negotiation position with all of this.

RunRyder is not RunRyder without MarkRyder.

Wow, just read this shocking news, I know I stopped flying heli's a few months ago but I knew I would return to heli's one day, I still got on here everyday just to keep up with the latest news and some how I missed this post until today. This is sad news for sure, such a great website to visit and chat or buy and sell. Praying for you Mark, you did a great job all these yrs....

I would expect the industry to step up in some way. I don't think this is over. Without RR the industry will take a huge hit.

Ball is in Mark's court
Don't think industry would want to step in the middle of a divorce decree.

Mark has earned whatever he chooses, regroup, retire, step away.
We will miss this place and his efforts. Fairwinds Mark.

Re-build the site in your name Mark... the "Ryders" will follow in mass.
as long as it looks different your golden.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

I've been coming to RR A long time. I will really miss the site and wish Mark the best. Can't decide if I will miss the over the top wild speculation that comes along with the rest......
Time will tell. Marks post is clearly emotional. This storm may pass, its cause is completely unknown to us. Tossing about guess after guess, strategy after strategy can't really be helping improve the out come. Want to help? Try asking your vendor of choice to advertise here.
Again,
Thank you very much Mark. I hope you can find a path to get this low spot behind you and if the cards fall right, keep this site up and running for you as well as all of us.
If there is some way I can help, please let me know as I'd be very happy to help in any way I can.

RIP ROMAN

I refuse to speculate as to exactly why Mark has chosen to close RR but can I assume that the actual posts made to RR, and held by Mark, are public domain? In other words, the dissolving and liquidation of "RunRyder" really would only be the selling of the domain name.

Would it not be possible to take a disk containing the data file(s) of 15 years of conversations and posts and simply include it under a new site. Could it not be possible to register the domain name "RunningRyder", upload a forum shell and include the posts and membership we (Mark and the members) created?

Of what monetary value would the compendium of a decade and a half helicopter learning and discussion have without a forum to access it on? The information available on RunRyder is immeasurably valuable but only if helicopter enthusiasts can access it.

I'm sure someone will be able to help me understand this better.

Yes I understand that RunRyder holds copyrights. What is exclusive copy-written material? Are you suggesting that when I (we) post here that that then becomes the exclusive property of RR? If what I post here is the exclusive property of RR, I need to know right now. I re-post much of what I've written here.

I really don't know and a assume others do. I will need enlightenment.
