This site appears to be non-commercial and advert free, so how is it financed? Besides someones time which I assume is free to administer the site, someone must be paying the domain name annual fee and the monthly hosting charges etc. With nearly 3,000 members, I would happily donate a $ or 2 to the cause each year. With 3,000 members x $2 each = $6,000 hardly enough to cover the administrators time, but at least he wouldn't be out of pocket.

To the best of my knowledge,

Roy pays all the costs related to this HTGT Forum out of pocket.
Perhaps as a hobby, I just don't know.

He is not active in the daily goings-on, but will definitely make his position known if/when he becomes concerned with something or other. I've seen it happen.

A short time ago, he inquired with the general membership about monetizing the board.
We are not aware how that developed.

Roy has posted specific rules of conduct and we all follow them, and strongly encourage others to do so, to avoid creating headaches for him. We have a very nice group of helpful people here, and certainly hope to keep it that way!

Oh, I have absolutely NO standing here, may not, and do not speak for anyone but myself, and have no more contact with the owner of this forum than anyone else may.

You may contact Roy by Private Message, same as any other user.
My own thoughts on that are to leave him alone peacefully, to watch over us as he might wish, with my thanks!

Best
rc
