Hello,
As you may have noticed, there was a recent break in the OE forum and site.

We are not going to hide it from you, the last official OE developpers have decided to cut everything.

We managed to convince them to reopen until the end of December, the time to see how to transfer the forums (fr and us) to a new hosting if we wanted.

So, as volunteer admins (it still exists), Brolysanand I are thinking about transferring the whole thing to the same host, for the annual sum of 78 pounds (plus 50 pounds to transfer the data without loss).

So, we are asking the OE community. What do you want?

Do you want us to keep the forum alive or not?

Who would like to help us by supporting us financially?

The next step for Brolysanand I is to transfer the website to another domain name and then to do the redirects.

There is a potential solution to maintain OE as it is.  There is no OE evolution to come other than new elements.

WE need you OE community members to answer these question trough this post on the forum.  Remember theDecember 31st deadline is very close.

Thanks

I would appreciate to keep this forum running.
Although FaceBook does a decent job, too.
I would pay a decent amount.

I personally wouldn't need any help anymore, as I think after few years I am rather professional now.
But since it is such a good program, I am wiling to continue to support it.
And I would even recommend some minor technical changes, which would be urgend (deleting directories fails). I know VisualStudio.

But, if you decide not to continue, it would also be ok with me.

Anyway, you buddies stay healthy.
I hardly survived corona, thanks to a heart pace maker now.
That 'flue' is a disaster, underestimated, but deadly.
