@allworknoplay, the design is like Marmite (a yeast extract spread) in that people seem to either love it or hate it. I'm happy that you like it. I originally really didn't like it though as time has gone on, it feels like home. Yes the moderators are volunteers. There have been a couple of attempts in the past to sprout offshoots (there's a long history of dissent) from the community but nothing ever gained a strong foothold, those sites are long dead. I'd never (never say never) consider moving all of the members to a new website. That's just plain wrong. About the ads, I really doubt they're earning anything much at all; in all probability not even covering basic running costs. But I don't have any figures.
@Kalle, I didn't know you were admin on CT. Then again, I'm not even sure if I have a membership there. It's good to see that a site can skip along without an owner, as I'm sure TalkFreelance will. Perhaps it is time to take a tighter hold on the reins and actually step up, make changes (nothing huge) and get things done.
I agree with Salathe, I know what OP means, but TC is a new one. I guess I'll have to try to remember that one.
I've never been to TF, today was my first and the design is really nice. I am kinda anal when it comes to site designs. When a color isn't #EEEEEE but instead #E0E0E0, I can see the difference and I have to fix it. It's a little bit of OCD too.
But anyways, yes, whoever designed it, did a TERRIFIC job and I definitely appreciate it. Do you know who designed it?
I would love to pickup new design tricks, in fact, who designed this website? (TalkPHP) as I like the design as well...
I think all you guys have too much talent to not run your own site. I guess it might be too much work to start from scratch, and bring over new members...that I can understand.
I hate knowing that owners don't have the same passion for their own websites....it's just a shame...
