Selling 18k+ posts webmaster forum

    I purchased this site originally at AdminExtra, the entire purpose of this purchase was to flip the site, make it better, and then sell it. Now that I've done that the site is for sale.

    There was another community merged with this one as well recently and the domain is included with the sale so you can continue to forward it.

    Site: http://community-forums.net

    About: The site started out using phpBB and a forum promotion site. The site was recently switched to invision power board products including IP.Board, IP.Content, IP.Links, IP.Gallery etc. (Screenshot included at bottom). Another webmaster/admin community was merged with the site as well. (http://admincommunity.com). The site is currently on pace for 5k+ uniques per month (according to Awstats). Current posts: 18,223. Current Members: 550.

    The front page is currently using IP.Content as an article/CMS area. 90% of the articles there are unique and a few I've written are also posted on my personal blog.

    Currently on average about 22+ users login per 24 hour period of time.

    Included: All IPS products listed below in the screen shot
    Domain names: http://community-forums.net http://admincommunity.com
    Database
    SkinBox skins Surface may/may not be included. I've asked at SkinBox.net about the transfer process: http://www.skinbox.net/community/index.php?app=forums&module=post&section=post&do=new_post&f=3.

    Assume no revenue from adsense or other earnings

    The site is in the middle of a contest. I will pay out the contest winner so you don't have to end it, and the contest can continue to run with no negative side-effects of canceling it.

    Hi, please send me the Google Analytics stats for the last 3 months. I trust this counter mostly! I'd also appreciate if the screens include the % stats for the traffic - direct, refferal and organic (the most important for me!). Looking forward to your message. Thanks!

    "the entire purpose of this purchase was to flip the site, make it better, and then sell it" - what exactly have you done, changed, improved? Why selling it so soon? Thanks.

    Converted from phpBB to IP.Board products was probably the largest improvement.
    Custom logo
    Activity increased
    SEO improvements (some standard features of IP.Board)
    Link building and directory submission
    Custom front page layout integrated to the site (using IP.Content)
    Unique articles.

    Basically rebuilt the site from the ground up, reorganized it, added new features for members (again some are default in IP.Board, others are added via free modifications)

    Jack BSMedia is the real owner of this website, sorry for the trouble but it's a complicated story.

    Before you post fake screenshots of a paypal transaction make sure the fonts match, and the date is after I sent you my paypal address....

    Jack don't take this personal but if David sold this site to you it would be a disaster. I am glad he didn't but sadly to someone else I expected more of.
