Who owns this site?

Hello,

Most of you guys know me from other robot related sites. I was wondering who owns this one as obviously its a knock off of our former home?

Maybe if we can get a post providing a bit of background for this site, others won't have to ask. Also what is the plan for funding on this one?

Thanks

A knock off? I don't think so.....

The reality of how a site is laid out makes most sites look similar, its the way it is, check out news sites, layouts are all similar. 

I am the sole sponsor of this website, although I have gotten 1 small donation from an excellent member here. I pay for the domain, server space and plan on continuing doing so indefinitely. This is completely a not for profit, actually a for loss only website.

 There will NEVER be advertisements here or a cost to be a member. I provide it free for all those that could or would enjoy it for reading or participating. I do site administration and my great friend Fredrik does the site design, and has made what I think is a nice clean website. He volunteers his time and some expenses as well.
So, who owns this website? All of us do. And I won't ever sell it. 
That said, it is nice to have you here and I hope you stick around and perhaps participate in adding content.

Hi Rox,

Ok, now everyone will know a little background about this site. I am not against using either site - CKR or RR. (I'm only against the a-hole site...) I like this layout better than regular forums. But either way its nice to see another place for our rejected community, and its nice to see it being run by one of the former rejected!  :-)

Regarding funding. I know you implied we are not in a bad place about site funding. But I wanna bring something up about it. There are websites where one can design a t-shirt online with logo images, then share the link, and anyone who buys a shirt from the link funds the group. The t-shirt company acts as a middle man making the shirts and providing the link for the public to buy them from. Then they mail you a check at the end of every month for your cut of the sales.

Me, I would like to have a CKR t-shirt, especially if the profit goes to the site funding kitty. I've shared this post on the RR website as I would like one of their shirts as well.
