I might take Enrive down temporarily, for some months to a year if interest in it remains this low. Since 2016, there were enough lurkers that the server costs were paying for itself with ads. So even if posting was low or we had no activity, I lost nothing by keeping us online. But at this moment, there are very few people browsing the site compared to what it used to be during 2014-2017 and ads only pay for 1/3 of the costs. It has gotten expensive to continue keeping us up when we have almost no posters, and when I have become so busy with my other business that I don't think I'll be able to code Enrive for a while. While I'll miss this place, there is no justification to keep it online if people are not interested in it, and it would be a better strategy to take it offline and only bring it back online in the future when I have finished coding it, or have more spare time and money to invest in it. If you like Enrive and want to support it and would prefer to keep it online, then help make the site grow at least a little. Doubling our Online Users to an 80 average should be enough that at least it is not a monetary burden on me any longer. I know that at least one person seems to be banned from every forum out there and Enrive is his only outlet, but due to the costs I may not be able to keep us up just for 1 or 2 people posting. Not with the world in the current monetary crisis it is. If I take us offline I will do so in 2 to 3 months. Enough time to mature the idea and I don't think I want to expend more money than that when I have been doing so for a year now. And just to be clear, it's not about the money, it is about the money + little interest on the website. The money I can save for not hosting us for a year may be much better spend re-hosting us in the future when the site is fully developed and where I can also put the time to work further on it.

>A Canadian sex toy manufacturer has agreed to hand over $4 million to settle a privacy lawsuit after it was discovered its “smart vibrator,” the We-Vibe 4 Plus, secretly collected highly sensitive personal data, right down to the date and time the device was used. >The lawsuit — filed in the U.S. in September 2016 — alleged We-Vibe manufacturer Standard Innovation designed its app to collect and record intimate and sensitive data on use of the vibrator, including the date and time of each use as well as vibration settings (like “pulse,” “peak” and “cha cha cha”). The We-Vibe requires users to download the app, called We-Connect, so users and their partners to control the Bluetooth-equipped vibrator’s settings remotely. http://globalnews.ca/news/3308543/we-vibe-privacy-lawsuit-settlement/

Devuan considers enacting Code of Conduct.
