Is this forum worth keeping?

Sorry everyone, I have not had much time to spend here, this forum started off as a good intention and public service to anyone who wanted to use it, but it's coming up on the annual renewal.
To renew the domain name it will cost me $20 not a lot of money, but I have to wonder is the board being used, is it work keeping? Since I probably wont' be checking here too often, please chime in to me via email, it's ogStevieStrow@gmail.com

Also for those not aware, a lot of the activity has probably moved to our Discord server: https://discord.gg/4J5nHXm

Discord is like a combination IRC chat client with audio and video communications built in, we've got lots of channels with lots of discussions, and that's free for everyone.

I come here in hopes of new content.

I was going to add some new basic programs this winter (my time for retro-computing).

I would think, as you have more contacts in the CoCo community than me (living in an rural area I'm the only retro-computing buff within 75 miles) it would be kinda up to you to promote this site. If it were properly promoted I am sure it would grow. There doesn't even seem to be a link to here from the CoCoTalk website. :roll: Do you ever mention it on your CoCoTalk broadcasts?

I'm not sure why this computer line has had such a hard times keeping a web presence. Apple II, Atari 8 bit, Commodore 8 bit ... etc. all seem to have vibrant communities even though this was a more capable and less expensive competitor to the bulk of those systems. Just compare the CoCo disk system to the C64!

What happened to all the folks that used to frequent the "TRS-80 TAndy Color Computer Forum? (tandycoco.com/forums/) That used to be a pretty busy site and had some real good folks in attendance. DO they even know of this place?
