Now that StackExchange announced beta7 and that there likely will only be one more beta, we are informed that after this the free beta trial will end, and that we'll automatically move into a 45 day free trial. The pricing model is, unfortunately, not within our reach, with $129 a month.
I am happy to learn that beta7 does add an export facility, so we do not have to write tools to do this manually, though I have yet no clue how to import this into a clone. Fact is, we'll have to move the Blue Obelisk Exchange sooner than later.
So, my questions are:
- what clone should we use? and is there even a hosting service?
- who has a free server to host a clone?
- who wants to help set it up and maintain it?
Great about this StackExchange beta period was that is was easy to set up, and that obviously comes at a price. I do not have overly much time to maintain a server, and could very much use some help. Perhaps someone even wants to take the concept over instead?
