I got what I think is a serious offer to buy this place yesterday. The main appeal of that would be someone who knows what they are doing the caretaker/admin role
the prospective buyer (didnt say how much) seems to have done deals like that before as there are lots of mentions of buyouts by them on other forums (particularly it seems huntin and fishin forums in the US!?!)

there are a few options to do a total upgrade onto a different software that is still maintained, like that of U75 (zenforo) or 555-555 (Discourse i think), as VB is imho past it. I think some of the customisations and fun stuff, like the tags and that would proably drop off in the migration, but it might be the right thing to do longterm

also, i tried to get the internet archive to mirror abut 20,000 youtubes from dissensus' first decade or so a while ago, they were up fr it, but i'm not sure whether they got around to it,
the british library have confirmed that they will make an archive tho, so that's kinda :cool: i'm interested to know how they will do it, as it's not altogether a trivial task. I have got a simple static (ie HTML, doesn't need internet server, databases etc but no images or extra goodies like tags) copy of the site, just in case, like

or downgrade your phone?
um, sufi...this is huge news, deserves it's own thread and discussion!!

what version did is known as branded content, where a client pays for an "ad" that's designed to resemble editorial. It used to referred to as "advertorial" content. version probably received a flat fee (he is an influencer, after all) plus commissions on click-throughs and sales.
It's true. It paid for my apple and bowl of cornflakes.

why would anyone want to buy dissensus? don't get me wrong i love this website but it's just 20-30 regulars and a bunch of visitors isn't it? is that already enough to get money out of it?

i dunno, i consider this a collective enterprise, maybe Leo can handle the negotiations.
Leo would get my vote too, but we need Barty in the background as his sidekick I reckon. Be good to demonstrate how Dissensus appeals to an multigenerational audience.

Which makes it the most alive "Oldschool Forum" I know. I have been a member of several forums since the early/mid 2000s and most of them are either already off the net or in a zomby-like state today.

barty can do his striptease thing in the background whilst Leo drives the hard bargain.

trouble is the internet says that vbulletin is rubbish and vb5 is upgraded rubbish, so even at a discount i'm not sure we need the pain of trying to upgrade.
even graham norton agrees
