Post I think it's time for a new owner
I'm doing no good here, though the lights are still on, so that's something! The site makes $583.07 a year via Google Ads, I pay $91 a month for the server. In other words, if your interested, don't be in it for the money.

I would like to transition ownership of the server and domain to the new owner, I have a few additional sites I need to get off the server in advance, meaning this won't be a quick process, and I'd expect it to drag into March. I'm sure once you get your head around the site, if interested you could likely find new hosting cheaper, likely close to break even. Very rarely the sessions table of the forum will crash, requiring you to login and repair it (a 30 second process), but otherwise very little typically needs done. The caveat being, if something went boom, you're on the hook for trying to fix it!

If you're interested and capable, please email me at kjtocool@gmail.com. If no one's interested, that's fine too, I'll probably just keep the lights on for another year!

Well, unless things have changed for Magnus and MadGez, our offer probably still stands.

I'm just providing some of the capital right? If so, yeah I'm in.

Yeah same here. Some capital and perhaps the ability to step in if the the site has issues but I suspect Lecter is best placed for this.

I can still provide some funds if needed. I don't think I'll be able to own this site or provide technical assistance as the working hours for me are a bit too unpredictable.

Set up a paypal account so any of us can contribute like what BOT is doing.

We can easily break even. I don't mind donating every month to cut down costs.

Lecter, that works for me. Can you email me and we can work through transition? I'm going to try and get everything done sooner than later if possible. I want to leave donations and any other aspect to you for future direction, intention is to hand off things as-is, you and those you choose can take it forward as you see fit.

Lecter will see it fit to turn KJ into a necrophilia fetish site with an integrated nazi memorabilia store.

Everything is about ready on my end, I PM'd Lecter, just need to get his details and formally make the switch.

I am interested.







But I have no idea how to run a website so I can't. Sorry.

I wonder how much Dr Lecter, Chippy, Magnus pay a month for the site. If they pay $10-$20 a month each or something they're just going to keep doing that for a forum they don't or barely care about anymore?

Chippy pays for the site? I thought it was MadGez.

For some reason I thought he was an owner. No wonder you aren't banned. Lol. I knew MadGez was an owner but I didn't include him because he's still active (I guess Magnus is too but he seems to be on the way out, it's likely been 2 weeks since he logged on judging by his last post and how the PM I sent him about the main site after my posts in the Crashed Tables thread hasn't been read yet)

Chippy may be part-owner. I have no idea. But I wouldn't think so. He's a leech. There's no way he would put even a dollar towards this forum.

Yes Chippy is not part-owner. MadGez is.
