news under new ownership - Who are we and what do we want?

Hi all, my name is Lars and I am one of the new owners of I wanted to reach out and let the community know about our short-term plans for and who we are. We are sorry for keeping you in suspense for these last couple of days but we wanted a chance to get the deal finalized before taking the stage.

We are two owners;
Lars - Castion, whom will be handling business management and development.
Oliver - Seek99, whom will help with the strategic vision and act as a business advisor.

We know it is a monumental task to bring back from the brink its teetering on (/fell off) but we believe that its possible by focusing on the core values that made great. A lot of people invested their money, time and wisdom here and that deserves respect. We hope to return some of that invested energy back to our community members in the form of actual tangible benefits.

Some of our short-term goals are;
A return to the gold / platinum / exclusive membership classes and forums. /now done
A roll back to some of the old forums categories. /now done
A new design to help us turn a fresh page. /now done
Bringing back the trader ratings. /now done
Removing Adsense ads. /now done
Killing the crypto forums. (Already done).

We will not be taking the forums offline but will implement our updates piecemeal during the coming months.

Overall, we want to move the focus away from creating short term profits and towards building a sustainable community that is laser focused on domain name investing and discussion. Our end goal is for to rise from the ashes reinvigorated as the go to place for professionals in our industry.

Some of our long-term development goals are;
Implementing a tag-based marketplace system and search.
Bringing value and benefits back into the exclusive membership.
Making user-driven innovation a focal point for further development.

We are not kidding ourselves. It won't be an easy task, but we are in it for the long run. In the end many small steps goes a long way. We hope that you will join us in this journey and help us achieve our goal.

Finally we would like to thank the previous owners of for their assistance in making this transaction easy and agreeable. We wish them all the best in their future endeavours.

The new owners excite me!

I hope we can fix the header image. :D

Thank you for the nice words Jeffrey. Grateful to have you here to help. The header image will be replaced very soon. The new banner is ready, but we will be launching it together with a fresh Xenforo design to match.

All the best and good luck, you really need it to bring this forum back to life and gain the former recognition!

Thank you Tudor. Great to see you here. We can do it together I am sure.
