Many of us feel this way. I think if the new leadership needs help from forum members, it will be there.

Thanks for the update and for the commitment to keep us appraised of how this will continue. This place is very dear to me and I would hate to see it disappear. I gladly donated some money when asked and it feels very weird to hear now that it basically went down the drain. If you need someone with organizational skills, let me know. I would hate even more if more money was wasted for no good reason.

That new beta site seems to at least have the bones of an infrastructure . . . are you exploring ways to continue that work and migrate over everything from here to there? Or are you just abandoning that beta (and the money that already went into it)? Is further work on it just throwing good money after bad?

Appreciate the update for sure, but it's sort of left everyone with more questions than answers. Like someone else says, was there no written contract about the work the developer was contracted to do? I know it might be a waste to go after him individually - you can't get blood from a stone and all that - but can't you at least recover control of the work he did and get it into the hands of a new developer to go through, bang up, and complete?

Anyway, I have other thoughts and ideas and questions, but I guess until you have a BOD in place or locked in, there's not going to be much to do or answer about . . . again, thanks for stepping up whalaw . . .
Obviously, using the bones of the "beta" site is preferred. There is a contract, but read what I wrote above regarding foreign status. Going after the developer is a cost/benefit analysis. Right now, my focus is on (1) getting the BOD in order and (2) contracting with a new developer.

I've been asked a few times about dissolution. That's our final choice here and will be done only if it's a legal necessity. If it comes to that and I have any power still, I would work to ensure that the database is safeguarded.

All of this is greatly appreciated. And, once the BOD is set in the next few days, we'll move on to the upgrade.

I can see of no reason why the name of the developer who took money cannot be posted on this forum. After all, it is our money they stole.

Please post it...the internet is a bitch.

Because I want to hold EB to a higher standard, it's really that simple. If we are going to address that situation, it will be in a professional manner, not child-like.

Luls. You do realize whalaw is a lawyer, right? Not a chance in hell he publicly names "the entity" if litigation might be pending at some point.

P.S. Luls @ using a foreign developer when there are plenty of domestic(ally sueable) ones to choose from. EB obvs tried to chince and it ended up costing em.
