AF under new ownership

PostPosted by 2G CrayZ » Fri Apr 01, 2011 5:22 am

Hey guys,

As you may have noticed Armbarforums has gone through quite a few staff changes as of late, with Rich0 stepping down, Longshot becoming admin and ArJay returning to the staff team. These changes, although unexpected, have kind of changed the whole way we've been working. From the start, IWND and I agreed that we would only participate in this project if Rich, IWND and myself were all involved and now that Rich0 has decided to step down, IWND and I have taken a few decisions relative to that announcement.

First of all, from Monday morning onwards, Rich0, IWND and I will no longer own Armbarforums.com. Longshot, Bando and ILMH will now own 33.333...% each.

The deal has been in the works for a couple of weeks now and we finally agreed on a price (we didn't sell for that much, just got back our money on this year's hosting plus a little bonus for the work we've put in last year). Yesterday the deal went through and ownership was transfered.

What does this mean for AF? Well, as owners, ILMH, Longshot and Bando have a free admin spot, while me and IWND no longer do. ILMH has still wished to stay off the staff team, so whoever fills the 3rd admin spot is up to them. We will more than likely see at least 1 election, be it mod (to fill Bando's spot) or admin, as they have agreed to keep ArJay around.

Anyway, this is probably my last announcement as admin so I just want to thank each and every single one of you for making this place work in the short time AF has been in existence. Once again it's been a great experience, I got to work with some very cool people, post with some very cool people and I've made some good friends along the way. Of course, I'll still be sticking around as a regular poster, I couldn't live without AF.

Well, this seems to be the end of the "3 Kings" era, but I'm confident the next generation have the skills to keep this place rocking and shit, you never know, they could be better than us. ;)


Anyway, thanks for your understanding and congratulations to Bando for his promotion, Longshot and Bando for their purchase and ILMH for being the last founder standing. :thumbsup:

Very unexpected for those not privy to the events. You guys will still be here right? (I see you've spoken for yourself)

Right. This has less to do with activity and more to do with time spent maintaining and promoting the board. All of these guys are quite busy around here and aren't sure when they're going to have free time in the immediate future in order to continue to improve this place like they did in 2010.

Part of this deal which Ben left out (and I don't really blame him for doing so) is that when these guys are ready to return to an ownership role, I've offered to sell back my share to one of them for purchase price. I'm not in this for the money and I respect all these guys have done in their ownership role- I don't think I'm necessarily an interim owner, but I feel that these guys have done a great job and I realize that if they really wanted to they didn't have to sell, so it just felt like the right thing to do.

Anyway, besides a few color changes and upcoming election(s), you won't notice very much that's going to change about the board. The six of us all have similar philosophies about how to improve (and for that matter, expand) this board - and we're going to do our very best.

Why did you sell it to them? Zuffa would've put a better offer on the table, that's like Strikeforce selling to Pro Elite.

On a serious note, sad to see you guys step down as admins but I'm sure the place is still in good hands.

Good luck guys.

You forgot to thank/congratulate me for no-selling the new ownership and remaining MOD.

This was blatantly obvious the second I saw it.

Does "AF under new ownership" mean Armbar Forums or April Fools?

For the same reason Goldmember didn't :P

Edit: my bad, it wasn't Goldmember. It was Snoop Dogg
