    First we want to thank you all for the great ideas and input. We need to take the site to the next level and start it by bringing in other members to put all of those fresh ideas to use. We want to see more GTG's, cruises, sponsors and honestly maybe a small show put on by us. Input on all of this is welcome. Its a ton of work and a lot of time but its worth it. Internally there is a re org as well. Trent wants to relax and not run a site anymore so he will be managing software upgrades and such. There will be other changes example... added site functionalities and most important updating the site rules. Those will be posted shortly. Its going to be a challenge and take all of us to be on the same page to move forward with such a great site.

    Thanks Again,
    DITB :wavey:

    Thanks for posting this John aka Porkins.

    I just want to add a couple things to what John has already posted.

    One of the main reason for me wanting to sell the site is because I'm a bit tired after 10 years of actually running the forum, "policing" it, etc. After a few of us had a 3+ hour talk about the site and where to go with it we came to a solution that I am happy with.

    I will still continue ownership of the site but will no longer be doing the day to day forum work. Moderators will be taking over that role, making sure everyone places nice with each other, and if things escalate and action needs to be taken in some form it will be up to them. I will be out of that process unless absolutely necessary. Instead I will be managing software upgrades to the site, adding new content as idea's come in, and things along those lines.

    If we were to think of this as a company; I am moving from being the CEO to being the Chairman.

    Some of the people who privately expressed interest in acquiring the site will be added to the team to help bring in fresh new ideas, and hopefully take DitB to the next level (whatever that may be).

    The big goal that we all came to agreement on was to bring a great sense of community, maturity, and friendliness back to DitB.

    Woot. Awesome. We really do need to do a yearly GTG. We always have the largest turn out and they always seem to be a great time.

    Let's do this.

    I'm still relatively new, but this is good to hear.
    Being a local site, it keeps it small, keeping the local feel to it, but still have very many knowledgeable, helpful, and active members on here.
    Though this site is not as big or have a big DIY section, I still would rather come here for help if I can't find what I need by Googling.
    I tried Vortex, got some good info, but overall, it's blows the goats!
