I have not post much in here but i do use Thunderbird email software and visited here when i need some help. I hope it stays open.
If not it can be transferred to someone else to administrated.
Of course u need to get new hosting witch it may require vps hosting or even dedicate hosting, it all depends in the traffic of the forum daily. I understand that the owner does not want to share the user details but at least if a deal is made to at least the domain is transferred to keep the legacy going.
I managed owned before forums build on vbulletin, xenforo and other forum scripts type. Now if the old owner of this forum does not want to share the users id/emails and their data for privacy reasons , then assign all postings to one user , let say " MozillaZineBot" and this way all postings will be saved and then erase all user data.
Regarding Forum Software: I used to like Vbulletin a lot, but now i think xenforo is much better.
Anyway, It was nice to keep the old domain going "mozillazine.org" 22 years is quite good to keep the legacy going....+
Regards,

Here's another vote for (and another person willing to contribute to) keeping these forums alive.

This online community looks like it has many great memories between a lot of people and, although it was nice, all great things must come to an end.

Oh also someone should consider archiving this site if that hasn't been done so already, not in the sense of making it read-only or unchanging but instead a snapshot of the site and all of its contents in each thread.

How so? I find Reddit to be a monstrously ineffective way to carry out the functions that these forums have. I could spend the next four hours detailing dozens upon dozens of communicative functions that are convoluted, labyrinthine, inefficient or just plain missing on Reddit. It's more suited for ephemeral non-substantive chitchat, which is what it was designed for.

Just another comment to say how valuable Mozillazine is and how much more I have been able to do over the last 10+ years - just plain do, with anything involving computers - thanks to it. Without Mozillazine the number of hassles in my life would markedly increase.

- and that I would contribute money and time if there's anything I could do to keep it going.

I can imagine a mass exodus from Mozilla products if the support forums close. Why would a user keep using products whose main support has closed?

You do understand Mozillazine is an independent user site not affiliated with Mozilla, right?

You seem to be underestimating the impact of these forums. If the alternative is better, then these would die off on their own. Glad to see someone decided to keep things going here. I wonder if the "wayback machine" would still keep a running, decent, usable archive if this all went down.

Not at all; just providing a link to the Mozilla forum.
