Hi all, my name is Lars and I am one of the new owners of DNForum.com. I wanted to reach out and let the community know about our short-term plans for DNForum.com 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 DNForum.com back from the brink its teetering on (/fell off) but we believe that its possible by focusing on the core values that made DNForum.com 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 DNForum.com 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 DNForum.com for their assistance in making this transaction easy and agreeable. We wish them all the best in their future endeavours.

I am sorry to tell you that Johnn decided not to become part of the ownership circle of DNForum.com and has stepped down as admin.

We will miss his input and contributions as staff, but hope we will still see him as an active member of the forums.

We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.

That's a shame, Seemed like the most active person.

All the best Johnn :)

I assure you that the rest of us are working hard behind the scenes at getting this place churning again. But we will miss Johns contribution on the outwards facing team. Luckily we still have a great team of mods in place and I will do my best to post some more in the mean time.

hi
to the new owners!

glad you brought the forum back online, cuz I was negotiating with another member when it went down

don't know if that will pan out, but still hoping :)

also glad to see familiar names giving well wishes for the future

folks like Theo, Donna, Mr D, The Watcher, Dale, Jay and others
used to be lot of comradery, even in the face of competition,

lot of us used to mod this forum together, trying to maintain, what it was, while hoping to make it better

good to see Oliver is still around, I remember when he first joined dnf

as you can see, got a lot of memories from this place
and it be good if it can stay open long enough for others to get some good memories too

now who wants to buy some of my domain names?

Good Luck!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the new owners.

Something that I would like to see back is the $DNF I had a great time earning $DNF currency from members by posting in forums, adding links to social media sites, commenting on blogs...
