ANNOUNCEMENT: Englishforum.ch - change of owner and new paid subscriber model.

Dear English Forum readers and members.

Effective April 1st 2011.

I am delighted to announce that after careful consideration and negotiation with the existing owners of EnglishForum.ch, I have decided to purchase the domain name 'englishforum.ch' and all of the intellectual property, server infrastructure, and all associated trademarks, including the web service www.englishforum.ch

Over the next few weeks the English forum ("EF") will be ported to a paid subscription model , a premium service will be implemented for paying subscribers. For the foreseeable future , a free service , with limited access and restricted content will be available for registered users. An email with the full details will be sent to your inbox , so please ensure your personal details are up to date.

This sale is effective 1st April 2011 and full control we be handed over during that day. There may be some disruption to the service whilst DNS entries are updated and web site content replicated to the new servers. We hope to keep disruption to a minimum and apologise in advance for any inconvenience.

Furthermore, I would like to add my sincerest thanks to all the Moderators and wish them the best for the future. The new server management company will be taking the Forum Moderation duties over for the immediate future and I invite all interested parties to send me a PM to initiate the new Moderating team enrollment process.

Full details of the sale will be announced at a later date, and further information can be obtained here.

Thank you for your support during this exciting period.

Faithfully

The new EF Management Team.

I'll offer my services as Mod, as long as it pays me over 120k (I hear it's impossible to live on less) and a lifetimes supply of brown sugar

I think viewers of this thread should know: give positive rep to the OP if you like this new plan, negative if you don't.

Should have left this where it was for a while, see how many concerned folk (gullable suckers) fell for for it.

Should have created a dup account aswell, obviously clear this first with the new owners.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: Englishforum.ch - change of owner and new paid subscriber model.

COOL !!!

Please send me an orange or red deposit slip ASAP so i can ensure that funds are transferred immediately... Of course i would expect that the amount paid would be a random amount, and not discernable in any way to the services provided. I would also expect periodic slips at random intervals, again in varying amounts.
