    Website - http://www.My16Bars.com
    SEMrush
    I created this site back in June 2008 while I was on vacation. My goal was to create one of the largest rap/hip hop communities on the web. I think I met this goal considering there are over 9,000 members, 30,000 bars posted, and 450,000 chatbox comments.

    Summary:
    My16Bars is a site where amature rappers can post their lyrics or "bars" for other users to comment on and rate. Most users have become better and better at rapping and writing lyrics because of the site.

    Site upgrades on 7/23/09:
    Read about them here http://my16bars.com/news/15485/New-Site-Updates-Are-Done.html

    Key stats:
    9,586 members (roughly 6 new users a day)
    30,797 Bars posted
    67,560 Comments posted on bars
    473 Crews
    459,279 Posts in the chat box

    Screens - http://picbite.com/tempimages/o104834yyqjp.jpg

    Traffic:
    55,000 Unique visitors a month
    300,000 Page views a month
    Traffic tends to spike during the summer months and evens out during all the others.

    Income is fairly low so im not even going to bother posting it. Around $30 a month using adbrite. The new owner can add more ads or allow users to sign up to be premium members and get new benefits. There are so many ways to make money I just dont have the time :)

    wow how many times can you legally say rap in one intro? lol. not a bad idea. maybe add options for uploading your own audio and beats too. i see you stopped working on it all together in 2009.

    I bid $400 with two qualifications:

    1) Please upload a text file with the phrase "Digitalpoint auction" to the web server and post the URL to prove ownership of the site.

    2) All of the cash prizes promised by the contests must have already been awarded. If this is not the case, please post the amount of unpaid prizes and I will revise my bid accordingly.

    Thanks.

    Im not really sure what you mean. It was custom built for me and was coded in PHP. It has a web based admin panel as well.

    Can't commit to it. Custom coding adds an extra level of risk which I'd need to evaluate more closely.

    The forums seems to be filled with spam. How many actual users are there?
