What are the benefits and issues of making a forum a non-profit?
| 3:07 pm on Oct 15, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I run a fairly popular community site. It has about 20 moderators who contribute their time for free.
I don't make enough off advertising to make it worth my time monitoring the forum for libellous posts but I also don't want the users to lose a valuable resource.
Does anyone have any experience of going non-profit with a forum site?
The idea would be to provide free hosting and hand ownership over to a new non-profit company run by the present moderators.

You'll want to mention where you are, since laws governing non-profit entities vary from country to country. Here (be) it involves a hefty sort of down-payment.

I'm in the UK and the site is a .co.uk
