Chipped in. Didn't realize how long I've actually been here...

Done. I don't visit too much nowadays but there's a good community and a lot of good information here, and I appreciate all the time and money you've put in to keep it running :)

Done, even though I just joined last year I had been frequently visiting for quite a long time beforehand. This is a great forum!

Done.

I agree with other comments, this forum is fantastic resource and must remain online!

It can be a bit overwhelming when comparing buying hardware VS renting in the cloud (regardless of the cloud provider). That said having the ability to just point and click to create virtualised resources is amazing compared to relying on hardware that may and will fail at some point IMHO.

Have you looked specifically at AWS Lightsail? I think it would be suited if all shmups needs is an compute instance for the web server and a database one https://aws.amazon.com/lightsail/pricing/

PM me if you need help with cloud stuff, I'd be happy to help.

This is a major hub and resource for the genre. Happy to help keep it around. Seeing how gamefaqs declined over the 20 years I've been frequenting that site, that would definitely be sad to see here. A message board format for information and communication definitely has it's advantages.
