    Host:
    I am currently hosting with 1&1 and do with my other websites also, if a sale is made I am moving host with my other websites so the buyer can take over the host or I can set a transfer up.

    Revenue:
    Please PM for info and proof, last year was £350+

    Forum Stats (posting, new users etc):
    forum contains
    Threads: 40,989, Posts: 130,625, Members: 11,305

    Members :
    New members a day on average = 4-10
    New members last week = 59
    New members last month = 262

    Posts :
    Last week = 113
    Last Month = 619
    (This was all its own doing and is like that at the moment users have been getting better all the time)

    Forum software:

    I have had the licence for the Vbulletin software and the VbSEO software but there out dated, this means that you can’t use their latest version but you can install the versions before, I can transfer all account information over for these on buying of the website.

    Payment:
    The buyer will have to pay 50% upfront then the other 50% on completion of the deal; I will take only PayPal or direct bank payment

    Price:
    At this time I am open to offers, but I am not willing to sell for a low cost, I have put in allot of hours for this website and hard work, I am only selling due to me having no time and other websites to deal with along with a business to run.
    Please make only sensible offers, I will work in usa dollar (please note I am from the UK) as I know more people deal in dollars.
    I also own the .com domain of this site, at this time it’s a directory that makes $5 every now and then and I have never really worked hard at getting the name out, if the price is good I don’t mind adding it in with the deal if the buyer wants it.

    Please note this is going to also be up for sale in other places, I will update any offers

    thanks, thoughts and questions are welcome

    Why won't you accept escrow payment?

    nice job bumping your thread 3 times in an afternoon, keep it up and you may not have access to sell it here ;)
    ps.. escrow is very easy to setup and I would suggest using it with anything over 300

    I wasn't meaning to bump it like that :( in future I will try and edit my last post if no one has posted.

    I will take a look into escrow now and see what I can do, if it will help.

    is it as trusting as other payment ways like paypal etc?

    EDIT:


    I Will Take Escrow Now also

    I would say that escrow is definitely safer than PayPal. I recently got scammed in this forum and I paid the seller with PayPal. Long story short I opened a dispute then escalated to a claim, but PayPal said it could not track virtual goods so I lost $100.

    no problem ;)

    btw, this looks like a great site, if your sale happens to fall though and it's up again in a month, I would be very interested :)

    np Loco.M you never know :)

    Nope you can live anywhere you want and own this website :), Like I say in the top post I own the .com domain also so It can be swoped with ease if the buyer was interested in owning both.

    ====================================================

    UPDATE

    Last year I made $315 in subscriptions on advertising, I have just been looking through my paypal and can prove it if people need me to (will be hard and only screen shots)

    so thats $315 + £350+ last year
