As others have already said ... there are pros and cons either way ... staying , starting from scratch , trying to buy the site , ongoing site management , etc.
Despite all the value of the old posts on this site ... I'd say for my 2 bits ... that value is vastly dwarfed by the value of the members ... lots of members with knowledge and skills in a variety of fields and a variety of experiments and projects ... that people resource is the reason I keep coming back to this site ... to see what others have been trying , experimenting with , etc ... if those people were elsewhere , that's where I would want to go.

Lots of good points. I only worry about the porting IF we were to change. i remember way back (2000) when IC was different. Granted, the change was for the better, but info/ members got lost, removed etc (i was one). id hate to see a loss like that happen again.
I agree the ads get annoying, but they are manageable. My suggestion would be added sub topics, better search function.
I do it becuase it's a service to the Honda hybrid community.
When the old forum was sold out from under us all the other mods threw in the towel in disgust. They had a point of course, but we needed to keep going somehow and I didn't want to rely on auoforums own admins to help us out so I stayed on.
I'm happy to relinquish the responsibility if someone else wants to take it on
