I am board member on another site that did just this. The administration duties were overwhelming for the original owner. Once the move and new owners took over, the forum grew, and became a very important part of that world.
Hopefully, that will occur here.
And folks, remember, the PFFis a "private" forum "<span style="text-decoration: underline;">OPEN" to the public.
I'm relatively new on here. I enjoy this place in hyper space. Its one of my favorite go to websites for general information and wisdom as to what is going on in our country and the town I live in and the fishing I enjoy when I can go.
As a mail order business and website developer, I could tell Chris was having troubles, especially with the current developer who was apparently in Great Britain? Seemed to me in a way he had Chris over a barrel and was not getting the new site up and going as promised. Seemed like the developer was getting around to it when he felt like it, or was not a very good developer.
Wondered also why Chris did not monetize this site to make more money for himself and afford some powerful webservers to speed this site up and in turn make himself more money on products and some simple google ads.
Am most hopeful that you made a bundle of $ and that you do not regret that you did not make more. In light of the oil spill and fishing, it may have been timely to let the buy out happen and take the money now.
In finality....all I can say is this "The Times They Are A Changin" - Bob Dylan.
Just wanted to say thanks again chris for all you have done to support this band of misfits over the years.. i can understand some of the concerns folks have, after all we look at it as "our" forum too.. and i know all of us have learned , and profited from it ..
Im proud of Chris for building such a good site and being able to sell it. I dont log in much any more due to the fact that it has become a rather sarcastic site due to all the arguing that goes on among the members. He owned it, pushed it , and before all the biatching, together you all had a great site. I hope it can be that again. Thanks Chris
Back in 09-2006 I started my business. Or should I sayChris started it for me. One post in the forum discount and promo section andI was off and going. Thanks Chris for making the forum what it is today......
I understand that DeSantis has been under a lot of pressure to do this, and as irritated as I am about it, my purpose is not to discuss the reasons behind the executive order. It's in place, it's not going to change in the immediate future, so I just want to see if anyone has heard anything...
When a manufacturer lists a dry weight of a boat, does that always include the engine(s)? I currently have a 21 foot boat that is advertised having a dry weight of 4400lbs. I'm interested in a Blue Fin 260 and the manufacturer says it has a dry weight of 4500#. I find it hard to believe my...
