ABCtales is saved!
Posted by tcook on Tue, 29 Nov 2016
I am delighted to be able to announce that ABCtales is to carry on. A group of members including rjnewlyn, insertponceyfrenchnamehere, philip sydney, airyfairy and seashore have agreed to take on the responsibility for running the site.
There are structural changes behind the scenes - it will be a pure Charity for now on, for example - but the day to day stuff will remain much the same.
This means that you, the members, will have a far greater responsibility too. These people do not have the money to pay the bills without your support. You will need to cough up! Details of how to do so will be sent to you soon but please, please support them or ABC will not continue for long. It only requires those that use the site on a regular basis to pay anything from £5 to £20 a month on a direct debit and all will be well. Those who live on the breadline already are not expected to contribute. We all want this site to be genuinely open to all whatever their circumstances.
After 17 years of hard graft it is time for me to stand aside but I will be there, lurking in the background, ready with advice and help if needed. I am very proud of what we have achieved between us here and I am delighted that it will continue. My heartfelt thanks go to those who stood up the plate when the chips were down.
