probably be down for 24 hours as the DNS propagates to the new owner's host.

I sure hope the new owner runs it the same way it is now. This is the only forum I have ever truly enjoyed.
you'll have to change the email address or drop it and resubscribe after he reconfigures it I guess.

Seriously, Phillip, I'm really bummed out that we're losing you. Can you tell us who the new guy is?
Some guy, dunno him.

All I know is what I could find cyber stalking his phone number, he apparently buys forums and sells marketing on them and makes a profit. That's all I know, and he's canadian.

I really doubt you'll see much if any change, in fact he seems to want to keep it static.
I wasn't going to say anything and just hand my account over so you guys wouldn't even know it had changed hands

I have no idea how much he'll be involved in the day to day operations, probably about a little as I do at this point.

A couple of us mods expressed intrest, but Philip's offer was pretty damn good.

Yeah there was no way to come up with the money fast enough.

It sucks that Philip is leaving, but hopefully its run with the same nonchalant tyranny we are all used to

I'd very much like to quit my job, take an 80% pay cut, and go to work for an airline and walk away from about everything.

Phillip, if you dont want to discuss this or I am asking to many questions just say so. I mean I wish I knew the forum was up for sale, I could have probably put up 5 grand of my own money maybe more to contribute. I could see many business opportunities with this place that would retain its current positives and bring on more.
it sold for less than that.
And it wasn't "for sale" someone made an offer, and I accepted. I had honestly been close to shutting it down anyway.
