    I am aware of that for my actual job, but I have nothing to do with that here. I assume that they are well aware of that, or because the business is located in Canada, it might not apply to them. So I've got no idea.

    Some further feedback on the ad issue, they have received some similar complaints for one of their other properties and have taken steps to improve that, and they are thinking that something similar could be coming for PSD soon. In the meantime, I would encourage all posters to use the Contact Us form if the ads are affecting your experience here to the point where you are logging on and posting less.

    How much (you can ball park it) would it cost to buy this site? I don't want the regular site, just the forum.
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    Sounds like a horrible investment.

    PSD: where the moderators consistently cave to crybaby tattletales and it's a lot safer to be openly racist, hateful, and ignorant than to be a little rude to the racist, hateful, and ignorant

    350k (5x revenue)

    Then about 30-50k to revamp to a modern interface, need all the free help to stay free, need a hook to attract visitors, like a fb page and twitter account that is active
    But you would need ads that attracted clicks to keep it free

    just to buy a website you would sell your house?. offer them 50k and see where it goes, the more they want, the more they finance, pay them off out of earnings.
    Or do you just want to own the sandbox so you can tell everyone to go home?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the parent company uses PSD more as just a low-cost low-maintenance side revenue stream than anything. It gets tougher and tougher to keep a site free where you don't sell anything...and there's a fine line between a tolerable amount of advertising and 'I gotta use an ad blocker' levels.

    One problem many users don't think about is...if you like a site, you can't just block their only revenue source for it by blocking their ads. The more people that do that, the more likely a site has to 1) increase the number of ads or 2) close down.

    But, the level and type of ads here do get cumbersome...and too often cause pages to not fully load and/or you go to click something only to have an ad pop up where you just clicked, etc.......and annoying users doesn't increase traffic either.

    I'm here as often as I am because the forums on my OWN sports game site are extremely underutilized. I have active players (or at least did pre-covid) but posting has been down for years. Forums in general are tough to keep active without giving users more reason to log in.

    One thing I've wanted to look into for years is ways for smaller sports sites to combine resources to network together for various things, instead of each site expending energy to do some of the same things, spending more per site for server space/bandwidth, etc....networked together advertising could be higher value, lower impact just because of traffic numbers from combining resources. If a mod wants to put me in touch with someone with the company on that, I'd be down with that.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    New, and I am unsure where I can post question since I can't start a new thread as of yet nor use private messaging. Thanks for the help.

    Since I know who you are from other sites in the past, I will upgrade your account now. Usually there are thresholds to meet before those abilities are unlocked.
