The forum will be down for scheduled maintenance on Saturday, March 4 beginning at 10am EST. Actual downtime is unknown but may be several hours.

What will happen to SQLA after the beta period of StackExchange (and the 45 day free trial) is over?

Any thoughts on this yet?

If not, lets use this question as a sounding board for ideas to keep this place alive!

You mean, when StackExchange leaves both its beta and its (45 days) free trial period?

@Volker: That's how I interpret the situation. It's a good question for the long term... in the short term, Money Shall Be Forthcoming, SQLA will not be allowed to fail for want of Filthy Lucre :)

FWIW Joel Spolsky is making the rounds of the venture capitalists to seek funding for StackExchange. I don't know whether that will affect pricing or not. Also FWIW, suggestions have been made that another, lower, pricing tier be introduced for Really Low Volume sites like this one, lower than the current minimum of U$129 per month.

@Volker Yeah, sorry, I should have been clearer. Question modified.
