    Re: Sabong website shutting down

    NO I do not think so .... jc wrote that he received
    donations up to january2019... but there were donations
    exceeding and I think going beyond january 2019...

    hope that everyone with concern for this website
    and has not yet donated should do so.

    I am addressing the 'PINOYS' who has not yet donated
    to please do so and so with the 'KANOS'....

    Thanks.
    Is this just for the Chicken Talk threads or the whole website? And is there any way to save it or is it set in stone?

    Re: Sabong website shutting down

    I have learned so much from this site. I’d like to thank Senti for keeping it going for as long as he did. He’s quite generous.
    Thanks to all who cared enough to share, not may do.
    Take care everybody.

    This is disappointing news. Really enjoyed this site.
    A lot of great information about to be lost.
    I’m glad I paid. It was worth it. Thank you.

    Is there any other website similar to this one ?

    Thats a generous offer and I commend you for it but I believe there’s enough active members that should give the 10 and it’d be more than enough. I respect anyone that’s willing to donate to the cause but there’s no reason a few should have to give for the many. But that’s our society these days I suppose.

    If we indeed lose the site, I figure I’ll just cancel after that point.

    Re: Sabong website shutting down

    This will go against everything I belive in but there’s only $140 left to pay for senti yo keep this site open another year Instead of these kind guys like Spring Creek dontating fowl like his valuable mule trains that are worth way more then $140 If a couple people want to go in with me and make up the $140 I’m down to do it. Pm me if u want to contribute and let’s gwt this taken care of If not we gonna lose this site over these free loaders not wanting to contribute $10 for a year of valuable info. This is the only place people like us can go ans discuss the passion we all love so much. If we lose this we have nothing!!

    I'm down to help pay for others. But It sounds like Senteciador is done with the site.

    Well if that’s the case then it’s not worth us donating more money into this site

    Re: Sabong website shutting down

    Guys we really need a place like this for us cockers. I've said this a lot of times Facebook is not our friend! We can't rely on them.

    Off the top of my head I think we could (1) set up a subreddit (I have https://www.reddit.com/r/gameroosters set up since a while ago, but again reddit is probably not cocker-friendly!), or (2) start a general on 4chan, maybe on AlternativeSports (could be NSFW) http://boards.4channel.org/asp/ and we'd be anonymous.

    Alternatively how much would it cost to run a bare-bones version of this forum? i.e. just the Chicken Talk forum? Anyone has a ball-park number? I mean this forum was getting over 3k users back in 2008, right now there aren't even 300 counting lurkers. I'd guess if we start over costs would be lower? This is just an idea I'm not that tech savvy.

    Yeah I think youre right. From what I read it sounded to me like the interest in keeping it going just wasn't there anymore regardless of the money. Which really sucks to hear . But whats worst of all is how few pulled together and paid to try and keep it going when they had the chance. Sometime it doesn't pay off to set back and think others will pay their way. That's whats wrong with the whole sport and why we cant get any laws overturned.Too many people not willing to share anything, money, fowl, support anything. A lot of us seem to be our own worst enemy . I hope Sent. wil change his mind but I agree it doesn't sound like it.

    Re: Sabong website shutting down

    Well guys if this really is it I guess Id like to say farewell to you all . The ones that Ive made friends with and want to keep in touch and pm me their email address. That includes a few of the *******s Ive argued with too. Hell Ill miss a good argument every now and then when I got the time. I sure do hate to see the site fold after all this time.Its a damn shame . Shame on the ones that wouldn't help ti keep the site running.You only have yourselves to blame when you have nowhere to turn when you have questions now.
    I wish Sent. would just made it a mandatory membership instead of relying on peoples good heartedness to share. You cant count on that but from only a few folks these days , family, real friends and people who really care about the cause. This just proves how many their actually are that care if the sport ever becomes legal again and its not very many compared to the ones that keep fowl. Thanks to all of those that tried and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families. YFIS

    I mean I agree we cannot just give up. Can’t w do an auction or something I’m sure we could donate something to help keep it up. We might be down but we are still pecking and game. Surely they are something we can do.

    Re: Sabong website shutting down

    So basically that's ONLY 240 members needing to pay 10.00 a year to keep the site up and running !?!? WTF How many members do we have here again ? As of 6;36 AM this morning their are , currently on here a total of 12 members and 336 guests. With a total of 45,534 members in all yet me and 75 others are the only ones cared enough to pay the damn fees ! That's worse than I thought . I hope if the site can be saved this time around that the final goal will be to become a mandatory membership . Ive not been on here half as much lately but will try to keep up with whats going on and help out when I can. Some of these guys that claim cockers need to step up and pay their fees. Hell guys, if you haven't paid and you've learned one single thing off here or saved one single bird from sickness or anything its worth 10.00. Don't wait till its too late.I hardly have any fowl I could spare but if it comes down to an auction or fundraiser Im sure I could come up with some other stuff or maybe even let one of my personal hens go if it would make it through the next several months.Hopefully by then a long term goal will be in place or more people will realize what they are about to lose here.
