Now that the conversion is done I can move onto the giveaway I mentioned earlier. It's pretty simple really. I will put up for download the databases to some sites I purchased and never used or from sites I am closing. Some of the data is old. Some of it is old with new posts from RSS feeds. The sites that are still online that I will be giving away do have new members signing up. They just don't post. These databases are from vbulletin, IPB and xenforo. The live sites that I will be closing and giving away the databases are: http://eightforum.com http://dotnetforum.net http://windows2008forum.com If you download those databases and want the domain name contact me and I will sell the domain to you. There are also a few databases from sites I purchased or closed that you might be familiar with. These are: ForumBuddy vBnt IPB Setup Microsoft News Network Dell Mini Forum SEO Help Forum Server Help Forum Mac Mini Forum Why am I doing this? I am not using these so if someone else will then they can have them. I didn't want to go through the hassle of selling these so I am giving them away. I am also pairing my network down to just a few sites and no longer need the data. What can I do with these? You can import them into an existing site to add content and membership or start a new site using the data. How will you give them away? It's going to be pretty simple. I will upload them to the resource manager. Once you reach the criteria I set to download them you'll see the links to them appear. In order to download them you'll have to contribute to the community by starting threads or adding resources. I will work out the final details in the next few days. This isn't a contest. There is no start date or end date. These databases will be available for download forever. As new users reach the criteria to download them they will be able to. That means that while you may be the first to download and use the data there will also be others that could be using it. If you want the data to be exclusive to you then contact me about a price for database. If you buy it then it will be removed from the downloads section. If you have any questions post away and I'll answer them.
