I too hope that MC will survive. I have enjoyed the last 10 years. Certainly willing to help out in any way that I can to help keep MC up and running.

Same here. Want to see a plan though. Happy to donate to the cause. No interest in the other sites....I like this cast of characters

It would be straightforward I would have thought to get quotes for appropriately techy people to do whatever needs doing (we could list it on Upwork and have a load of offers by tomorrow). But I don't think anyone knows what needs doing. It's all a bit Marie Celeste-like.
Having said which, I'm still enjoying the games and what has been done so far this year seems to me to be good - so credit's due to the powers that be for that.

I agree with all that's said. I don't have a whole lot of experience on other sites, but if it's true what everyone saying about this one being the best, it should be an easy sell to people. Apparently online games are booming -- Board Game Arena gets up to 400,000 users per day since the pandemic. https://marker.medium.com/the-pande...and-other-game-makers-scrambling-db273f2cfffe It's unclear if those are unique users or the same users coming back several times per day, but still... I would imagine a fraction of that number would be enough to keep MC afloat.

I can't help with any of the coding, but I could provide some help with SEO and marketing. And I'm happy to make a donation if such a drive comes about. (Maybe even some sort of limited shares arrangement? Buy a share, and once everything is up and running, Sheriff can buy them back or something if/when the site takes off? I don't know - I'm not a finance guy either, so I'm not sure how that would work, but it seems like another possible approach.)

Anyway, I'm still having fun playing, even without the bells and whistles. But I do wonder about MC's future, especially after reading this and other threads. If people are staying away because of the limitations, then it seems reasonable to get those limitations fixed soon.

Here's hoping...

I agree this is very frustrating - i do not want to give up on 10 years of effort on this site but i do see problems.

As this site dies I have spent more time on BGA (Board Game Arena) - loads of games, different games, exciting games. It is free or you pay €25 per annum. They seem to knock out new games no problem.
