Frank Posted November 19, 2017 Report Share Posted November 19, 2017 2017 Forum year in review As your forum administrator, my stated goal for the forum for the year of 2017 was to provide long term stability for this forum so as to keep all the fantastic information and photos that exist here available to the world. I am very happy with how we progressed towards that goal this year. We did not find a new platform for our information but we did lower the monthly price to keep it with Invision and we spread the burden of that price among a number of the members. Thank you again to all of you who stepped up and sponsored a month of maintenance fees for the price of $20 per month. Your support is appreciated! I see no reason we cannot provide another year of forum stability in 2018 by proceeding with this same system. I will post a 2018 donation chart next week – and I have already received payment for several of 2018’s months! Another achievement in 2017 was getting Invision to update our out-of-date software and that progressed without incident or data loss. The numerical count of our membership went up this year, but many more than joined left our ranks during the year so the membership number is deceptive. Going forward I will gradually strike from the membership list those members who have not visited with us in several years. Likewise posts to the forum are down for the year. Both of these developments are not unique to our forum – the Facebook ant-plant groups have the same issues. What is up with this! Has the cat ants got your tongues! Please, all of you, continue to share your information, insights and photos here and also respond to the newbies who seek our expertise with their questions. Remember, there was a time you were seeking the same information. As always, I welcome your input and comments, either here or to my email at email@example.com Frank Omilian, Forum Administrator Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
