Has Tuncer - or whatever benevolent ubermensch who runs this show - got a tip jar somewhere for hosting fees where we can toss him a few bucks as way of thanks? (Or should we just buy more games from the MGS?)

I would donate to a tip jar for updating our IPB to a non-dinosaur version.
Kestrel (Falcon NW Tiki) – 4.0 GHz i7 8086K / 32GB RAM / 2TB Samsung 960 Pro M.2, 2x480GB Intel 730 (RAID0), 10TB STX BarraCuda Pro / TITAN V 12GB
Iridium (MacBook Pro Mid-2012) – 2.7 GHz i7 3820QM / 16GB RAM / 4TB Samsung 860 Pro / GeForce GT 650M 1GB
Antimony (PowerBook G4 2001) – 1.0 GHz PPC 7455 / 1GB RAM / 512GB Micron M600 / Radeon 9000 64MB

When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.

I think we are in fact surviving on the scraps falling beneath the MGS's table.

Yeah, I assumed that was the case. But I have no qualms helping out more directly if that option was available.

I figure some day we will hit the forums and get an error 404.  A tip jar might help, it might not.  I do know that if it were in place there would be a monthly begging for tips and I don't want to be the one to do that.  I could assign a "tip hawker" to do it though.  I nominate nick68k for the esteemed position should such a thing come to pass.

I was thinking about this just the other day, what a big loss it would be to lose these forums. I wondered if establishing some kind of plan B would be an idea anyone else would be interested in. Google Groups came to mind as a possibility. Thatís only based on my imagination of what Google Groups is though. I have never used it. My thought was to have that setup but not actually use it until this goes down. Now that I think of it though, maybe Discord would serve the backup purpose just as well and in case of an apocalypse here, it could be our Vault until we established a new presence in the internet wasteland somewhere.

I was gonna say discord is a prime candidate if this ever goes down. There is also a steam group although those are far inferior to discord, but they are built in to steam which is something most of us use.

Let's just not have these forums fail though. I'll start buying full price games of MGS if I have to.
Maybe it really is all cocks in the end.

Given that I'm still accessing the IMG Forum at 2400 baud, I didn't know what Discord was. But thanks to Gopher I can see that it seems like a good plan.

There is already a Discord group for IMG that many of us belong to.  Get Discord (free) and post your discord ID here then I'll invite you.  It can be our bomb-shelter/clubhouse.

We need some new life on the discord, it's literally just Rakden's twitter feed right now (not that that's a bad thing)
