Lfw is busy but it's just not my cup of tea. If this place sinks I will just read up on Wls or the official site.
Not mine either, it seems to be for those people with an inordinate amount of time on their hands?!
Question everything.

Results have obviously been terrible recently, but in better news I’m glad to say that we’ve managed to raise enough money to take us through to the end of the season. After the last round of donations we currently have a balance of £450.21.

I haven’t heard back from DG yet, but when I do I’ll raise the conversation about switching hosting provider. If we can get those costs down and attract back some of the insightful old posters (Rbee says he’ll message Willow and White Duck, for example) then hopefully we’ll be on a good footing!

Thanks to Uxbridge, 222gers, Rbee, WA Hoop, NW6ranger for all your donations this time round.

Thanks to Bwhoops, AndyN19, Peter S, Acton Arthur, BiscuitRanger, WA Hoop, Uxbridge and DG for the donations last time round.

We also just got a generous donation from Andy, a lurker in the Canaries who says he really values the message board as a way of keeping in touch with Rs since he’s moved there.

I wish the results could have been better, but I also wanted to say thanks to all the posters who continue to contribute with opinions, analysis and match reports … it’s still my personal go to place for everything QPR.

Thats great news. well done for keeping this going. I had not been following the last round of funding but I will be happy to donate again for the next rounds. Would be gutted to lose this. got a feeling the rest of social media all things QPR will soon be turning toxic so it will be good to have this place to provide some refuge and balance for all things QPR.

well done all my fellow Dot Orgers.

Slightly better on the field today but definitely better news for this board. It's been an important source of information and enjoyment for me for a long time. I hope it continues and I salute those who work hard to make sure it does.

A quick update on hosting… I’ve heard back from DG who agrees that moving provider is a good idea.

He sent through a few options in terms of possible next steps, but I have to admit that they were all too techy for me to understand.

I remember a while back that there were a few tech minded people on here who said they’d be open to helping out.

If you’re tech minded and still eager to help, then please drop me a line here, DM me or send an email at qprdotorg2022@gmail.com

Hopefully we can get the costs down and get the message board back on a sustainable footing.

It definitely feels like there’ll be plenty to discuss over the next few months, even if it’s not all good news.
