    Oh wow, i tell you...I really need to become active more here :P I am always out of the loop.

    I was a member of AA and last i heard @AWS was shutting it down and what not so I am surprised to see the new merge but he's a good guy so I look forward to all the changes and improvements!

    Congratulations to the new owner. I was thinking of buying this site, and I already showed interest to Brandon about it.

    Woah! Brandon should have sold to you man. Not that there is anything wrong with Bob but I think youve done a ton for this site.

    Maybe Bob will offload it to you down the road Carlos.

    Not going to happen. In fact I will be talking to a long standing member who's very knowledgeable of what it takes to run successful communities. I want to make this community better.

    One thing I am looking closely at is the attitude of the posters as seen through visitors eyes.

    I'm gone for a while and I come back to this...

    Never been on a forum with a changed owner before...

    Hmmm

    Nothing will be different. It's the same as always just a new person owning it.

    Sure somethings will be but it will probably be a good thing. Think positive Bud. :)

    Along with @Brandon , Bob (@AWS) is one of the few people I remember being around when I first started out with vBulletin around ~ 2006. He's a good egg and obviously in it for the long haul.

    One interesting change is the recent notice about a vB 5 test board. Although vB5 is a complete disaster, it's a perfect opportunity for people to play around with it. And since the official vB5 demo is broken...still...people can actually start pointing potential suckers...er...customers to admin-talk so they can try it out. I'd like to see test boards for the other platforms, too.

    Once IPB 4 goes into beta you expect it to be installed.

    @AWS. Thank you for your quick reply. I am looking for sites where I can post the truth and will not be censored for it.

    Thank you. The facts and the truth will be posted all over the internet until things are put right.
    Recently a site removed one of my posts following a complaint from an unethical person, but has now re instated it as the truth is known.
