Great News! DWC Has Been Sold!

Post by ezcheese » Sun Sep 02, 2012 6:07 am

Hi all. I want to share some really exciting news. Some of you may have read that Watch Talk Forums was recently sold to a company called Vertical Scope, which specializes in acquiring forums and providing great resources that enable said forums to reach the "next level.". I am happy to announce that they have also offered me a sweet deal and I have sold DWC to this fine company. I am thinking of building something sweet like this with the money.



:excited:







































:roll: Just kidding.

I did want to make an important announcement regarding the ownership of DWC though. I will be canceling my host and domain accounts at the end of this month and our very own Master Wu will be taking the reigns.

Nothing will change as far as the layout of the forum or the mods, we're basically just transferring the database to a different server and Wu will be paying the bills to keep the lights on. :salute:
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Oh man, that's too bad. I was really hoping to be able to participate in a for-profit forum owned by Vertical Scope! They have such a stellar reputation. Plus, that is a pretty sweet slingshot. You would be the envy of the trailer park.
