I would be in favor of the subscription model. I have a feeling that I'm not the only one.

I’m not sure why everyone is so sad? This is what, the third or fourth time he was “shutting it down” only to have it live on. Cry wolf once...

Either kill it or move on. The sob story is old.

Thanks for the good times, but this site has been a graveyard for years...

I can answer this. There is an answer to your question.

Everyone is sad because we are losing a great asset and saying goodbye to many good friends. Many of us have been here for almost 2 decades and visit here almost daily. Your question fails to acknowledge the unbelievable depth of learning and years of experience just below the surface of what you see here daily on RunRyder.

If you went to the park every day for 20 years to walk your dog and visit with friends, and one day they announced they were going to close the park because foot traffic was down and it cost too much to mow, would you have any thoughts on that? Wouldn't you have some sense of loss over the good times you've had at that park? All the years and all the people you've known in all weather conditions would melt into memory. No baseball diamonds. No swings. No benches. No more walking paths. All gone. Ask me again why everyone is so sad.

"Well, Nothing bad can happen now."

"MY" content isnt. I want all my posts and gallery pictures permanently deleted and made irrecoverable by all means in existence.
Given your sentiment, I've decided to copy all your content and will delete from my server for $250. Paypal only accepted if sent as gift.

I copied the business model from "those" guys that copy mug shots from public records. So even if your lawyer expunges your court records, guess what? Yup.

Maybe we can work a deal for a custom part for my rad20.

The park analogy is good one. If you spent alot of time there then you would definitely miss it.

When RR does finally turn off, it will be missed. Many of us started out here and made friends and memories along the way.
Yes when RR does finally close it will feel like part of the hobby has died along with it.

spending time, paying attention

Why a graveyard, and why close the site, this is the most wonderful site I was privileged to visit. There are great friends here, very thank you, Alan from nowhere:

I really hate to see RR close, it's much better than Facebook, the way you can search and categorize discussions. Folks there's alot of knowledge and history here.

Maybe someone will buy this place? I have pretty much always loved this site, lots of great folks...

Just in case RR does close, thank you all for some very usefull info, some honest trades, occasional camaraderie at a fun fly, and a lot of good times.

I’m certainly going to miss RR. I’ve been on here with you guys forever and haven’t missed a day in well over a decade. It will be 15yrs for me this weekend. Unfortunately it has been slow for a while now. Hopefully someone purchases it so all the information isn’t lost. There is some irreplaceable content on here.
