Help save www.RockTumblingHobby.com
$3,700 of $5,000 goal
The RTH domain is up for sale, and rather than see it converted into a for-profit website we need to raise $5000 to preserve and protect it for hobbyist generations to come.
Your contribution here will go towards the purchase of the www.rocktumblinghobby.com domain, followed by assumption of adminstrative control of the public forum located at www.andy321.proboards.com, and the four Facebook RTH pages ( www.facebook.com/groups/TumblerRTH/ , www.facebook.com/groups/SlabsnCabsRTH, www.facebook.com/groups/WireWrappingRTH, www.facebook.com/groups/JewelryRTH).
More details including plans for the site, as well as levels of public recognition to be given to contributors can be found posted here: www.andy321.proboards.com/thread/77432/help-save-forum-fund-campaign
We have received a committment from the current owner to sell the domain to us if this amount can be raised by 3/30/2017. If our goal is not met by this date, the site will be sold to the highest bidder and this valuable hobby resource is likely to be converted into a for-profit business website and lost to the RTH community forever.
I have added the four RTH Facebook pages to the text of the campaign. Many Facebook user use these pages to find excellent rock hobby help and would like to see them remain free from a for-profit minded take-over.
