I have a solution to this. Transfer ownership of the forum to me and i will fund it with all the bells and whistles going forward. I'll also moderate it inline with N54 terms & conditions.
This forum isn't just your average forum, to be completely honest. It documents a small piece of british music history and is well worth saving.
