Hope things turn around for you Max. Thanks for everything.

And to everyone I've interacted with,thank you as well. I know I'm "barely on this totem pole",but a lot of the stuff I got from you may not have meant much on your ends,but to me it was amazing.

Max, you're amazing. I echo many thanks for what you started here on this forum.

Would you be open to passing the torch off to someone?

Yes, but I don’t know anyone with the technical skills, vision, and willingness to pay the hosting costs for this community that would inspire me to hand it off to them.

Thanks for the site Max, it's been a fantastic resource. As someone with their own health issues i know sometimes you have to step back and put yourself first. Take care. All the best.

What about rising the fee and hiring (I believe it is called) a web hosted to run the dailies.
Hosting providers only provide hosting. It is your duty to install/maintain/backup the site afterwards.

Thanks for everything, Max, and best wishes to you! This site has been a wonderful forum and resource for film fans and aspiring screenwriters like myself. I'm with the others who are asking for a way to let it continue, including handing it over to another person here (like KingCheese, who's obviously asking for that to happen), or a group of people. I'd be willing to pay a regular membership fee for the VIP access in order to help sustain the site.

would you be willing to allow me to copy the content to my gdrive? And would be willing to sign over the domain name for a fee?
You can't host a site on a Google drive! Google drive is meant to host personal files, not a website like this forum. For a site like this, you need a proper hosting provider that supports Mysql, SSH, ect.

Yeah, I do understand that. I meant the scripts. Signing over the domain name is a different matter. Every half descent hosting provider offers a domain name transfer service. So I would be able choose my own hosting provider and set up forum under this domain. But the gdrive was mainly so I could keep the files until a different solution was presented and then upload the to MEGA. Gdrive isn't ideal for this purpose.

Thanks for everything Max. All the time and work you’ve put into the site is greatly appreciated. For someone like me who loves reading scripts this place has been an amazing resource and will be missed. Best of luck going forward, I hope you feel better.

Seems like quite a few people are taking initiative to keep the heart of this site beating. You gave us life, Max, don't take it away! :(

I was away so this is coming as a bit of a shock. I'm heartened to see the outpouring of support.

I wonder if something like a GoFundMe could be set up - not just, or even principally, to make sure the site remains, but for anyone able to help contribute towards Max in case health and costs are interlinked. I know I'm extraordinarily appreciative of this place, and while I want to keep it alive, I'd first like to make sure Max is well.
