It is not a non profit organization now, and every business I operate is for profit 100 percent. Profit is not a dirty word.

This should have been done in a PM to Thor. And if you do buy it, please set it up in such a way as to enforce the use of the FAQ and to stop off topic and cross posting.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

no, but people wanting to make a profit from everything out there is not a good thing.

i don't know if this is on the level, but i would not be surprised if it were.

how long will the freedom of the internet be able to continue? it must really offend some people that ANYTHING in this world be free.

i wouldn't come to this site if there were a charge. there are enough fees and charges for things i need to live that i can't afford to make someone else wealthy because they found another way to get money from us.

Sir, I can assure you there would never be a charge to members. This site would continue to be free for members. This is a site for members and would be ran by a member. I would ask Anno to be chief Moderator, and Roadkill President of member services.

Well, what the fuck. It is going to be 100% for profit, yet, you will not charge the members? Yeah, more ads. I can't wait for you to buy it up. And with your ideas on getting the site more traffic, I'm sure you will have to charge the members, yes? Because remember, you said that the site as it is is losing money. And why would we need a 'president of member services'? I remember back when Dark Ages of Camelot first came into public view, there were great sites. Then, they started to charge members (even those of us who had already been members) for use of their site, because of TOO MUCH TRAFFIC. See my point? Damn corperate bastards.

lol, ok then.....

Firstly let me calm everyone down, the Shroomery is not going to be sold. In fact its been 1 yr since we took over this site and its now making a healthy profit. That profit however we feel should be used to improve the site, possibly some bigger changes coming in the future.

We've now bought our own server, we will have it hosted soon and this site will be lightening fast.

The site is still going to get an overhaul looks wise, and lots more fun stuff like that.

I don't want to step down and not be apart of that movement to continually improve this place, its fun, exciting, and I love being part of it.

I am a business major, I think after some troubles to start me and 3D's reign, we have really made this place financially stable.

The reason I thought about making money for myself outside the shroomery is because I don't want to use the Shroomery's profits for myself, rather use it back into the shroomery instead.

But the bidding for the Shroomery starts at $10,000 USD :wink:

Never a charge for members. Ad rates would be comensurate with site traffic.

Who wants to pay for advertising, when they can advertise for free in virtually every thread.

Wait... Let me get this straight. Gent, you wouldn't charge members, but all the ads would make up for the loss? God damn, I hate shit like this. If this site gets sold, and more of those god damn ads show up, plus member fees, I would leave this place in a heartbeat.

Actually that is going to change right now, I've been planning on asking all vendors to not put graphic signatures in their posts.

If you want to advertise there's paid banners, not signatures with your banners :smile:

You can link to your site of course, but no graphics, banners.

Mygnyl, I already stated the shroomery is not for sale.

High time.

The long time moocher 'vendors' who have been abuseing this site's generosity for years have no shame.

The bottom line is this site should be run like a business when dealing with 'vendors' that are in many cases makeing large sums of money from the members here.

Period.
