    From what I can gather the new owner is FFarl or he is with them.

    Ffarl works with the new owners - the new owners are Forum Foundry who run a series of forums over the net; their primary ones are some very large gun forums, but they've avenues in all areas. They said it would be a week or two as they sort out the final handing over of the site; plus there's migration of the site to their servers and also upgrading and tinkering of the site software.

    I've also provided ffarl with the details of the restructuring that we designed a year back. Things will take a little time, but worry not, one does not spend $3K on a site and then let it die ;)

    There's also some news here : http://www.thefantasyforum.com/show...Salutations-from-new-member-and-admin-dgstorm!

    Very true Overread. Plus, we don't want to make too many changes too quickly because that can sour the experience for the long time veterans of the site.

    Also, as a sidenote... ForumFoundry owns a number of mobile technology sites and automotive sites along with the gun forums. I am most intrigued by this forum though because I love Fantasy and Sci-Fi!

    BTW.. Hi! I work with FFarl and here is my Introduction post: http://www.thefantasyforum.com/show...Salutations-from-new-member-and-admin-dgstorm!
