You need to take this into consideration though man.

Say he gives you the site for say 3k (not saying he will)

You have to take into account how much its going to cost to hire someone to do on site work, plus upgrade vbulletin and everything. And you need to think of monthly hosting cost.

The budget will most likely be a bit larger.

we will worry about that later.

I think for now we just need to get the site in someones hands so we know it's not going anywhere. then later we can worry about raising money. some ideas I have for that is: fundraisers through advertising, donations, and contests/competitions. I think enough people will donate to get the monthly costs of this place, and if not I will offer up my own money, that's not a big deal. I think nv1 is pretty good with site work, as is davo. between them, robosteeze, rvideo, fragtality, and zola or someone zola knows, we can get whatever work we need done.

I am sure plenty are willing to help, it's just about getting this site into someones hands who will be around to both make changes and see them through.

get what I am saying? we can only wait and hope Z wants to sell. personally I wish Z would just come back and do the changes himself. make someone a full admin and then he can sit back and watch this site change, grow, and improve. that way we don't have to spend the initial 3k or whatever, and that money can go straight to competitions/upgrades

Oh I totally agree dude. I think him just coming back and giving actual admin powers would be the best case scenario. But I agree...if we just get the site in our hands and actually find people of running the site, everything else will eventually work out.

I agree with most of your ideas titty. I've only been on this site since 2010 and I'm more than happy to donate funds to help this place improve/for future comps. I think there's a lot of people on here who'd do the same.

I appreciate that, moey, I really do. I think plenty of people would donate, if we needed them to. I just want Z to come back so we can either buy the site and get going on improvements, or stick around and give someone some actual powers. we have a shot to actually do something here, something we haven't done since about the middle of h3's prime.

but we need Z

Didn't they say the ad revenue basically paid off the hosting costs? The more improvements/upgrades that are made, the more traffic and the more money we can get back and hopefully whoever puts in cash to buy this place can get back eventually.

That is wishful thinking of course.

20k is unreasonable and he knows it.

This site in no way, shape or form is worth that much.

I think when nv1 was in talks the bar was at 10k

I thin realistically, $2500-$3000 is the absolute max for what we currently have. after some upgrades, more traffic, and the forum we should have by november it'll be worth way more.

that's why i'd like to offer z about 1500, maybe he will just decide to take what he can get, cut his losses, and accept the offer for 1500, which is a great deal I think.

who knows, hopefully he gets back to me, he and I have been in touch throughout the years I have known him, he gets on aim more than a lot of you know, so hopefully he sees my message and either IMs me or texts me

well you'd better delete all these posts about $3k then, if you're expecting him to accept 1500. or just hope he doesn't see this thread
Oh, you.
