    I think most of us do! I for one just sat and thought when I was reading your post, I really need one, even if it just sitting on a nice sunny beach.. sure I would be bored to death and would find it hard to stop thinking of my projects, but sesh 4am and I am still fixing a freaking bug I found in some of my code.SEMrush

    I vote for the introduction - it useless especially after they already had done 25 post and then they introduce them self. Duh, if DP members hang out in the introduction thread than you mostly will never see them in other thread. Exclude the chat thread. Anyway, i've just trying to speak up and if it goes in one ear than out the other that fine with me.;):cool:

    If your still thinking of projects than you need to go to a fun place. Go to water park or six flags something that will take your breath away. I use to go every summer .. after my daughter moved out - than I have no one to go with..i always brought season pass for everyone.:mad:

    So can we have any information what Major change is going on?

    or DP is being trasferred to another forum software?

    I dont recommend the paid membership though, already there are lots of funds for DP.

    Shawn, as others have suggested some section of digitalpoint can be made paid - this was the same model followed by other webmaster forums earlier in similar situations - I am not sure how that finally turned out for the forum owners (probably you have a better idea about that) :) but I think the major issue you are facing here is scalability - I think google is one example where they have handled scalability pretty well - I don't know what exactly but probably you can take something out of google's book and adept the model to DP - probably something unique which no one has tried earlier :)
    Wishing you good luck for whatever you finally decide to change/modify - I am sure whatever you decide to implement would turn out well for digitalpoint as has always been the case so far :)

    I agree. If your going to turn into a paid business model, kinda should have done it prior to asking for donations. IMO you just need more moderators, especially in the BST section.

    Not true not true.. i don't think it would worth that amount, actually it should only be......

    [SIZE=-1]£2.500.00.00.00 !![/SIZE]

    Who? Who is the buyer? Any source? Is it really Google or Microsoft?

    Dude do what all high profile people do

    -change your number/email

    give out your email and phone to only current customers in need and shut down the old one.


    And to everyone else, stfu, dp actually can not be sold, thanks to shawn :)

    Well as far as I see our existing moderators are doing a wonderful job. Behind the scene mods know the challenges they face. :D

    Same here, although I don't think it'll be anything exciting.
