    Hopefully they will now change that God awful red theme and close that WSO area.

    Yeah, warrior forum really does have a very bad rep, doesn't it? I'm hoping I'll see some positive change in the way that forum is run. I might even consider registering if that happens.

    Sounds like not only they are NOT going to close the WSO area, they are reducing all WSO listings from $40 to $20. Permanently. Interesting move.

    There are a lot of little things they could change but why warrior forum is well known, has a reputation and has thousands of users.

    They've been around since 1997. In comparison, Google started in 1998. Just because it's an old forum doesn't mean it's a great forum. Some people may differ on that though.

    I visit Warrior about once every few months as I know some members there. I drop by to see what's going on. It usually only takes me about 10 minutes to get completely turned off.
    Hopefully new management will translate into some real change, time will tell on that.

    Changing the strategy and they are trying to make more money from the site. Ofcourse thats why they bought it. :D:D
    My sixth sense tells me sooner or later DP is also heading that path. Only premium members will be allowed to post in marketplace section. Warrior forum admins have milked their site to the full potential. Mr. Hogan will do that too and ofcourse he has every right to make money from his site anyway he wants. :)

    Right, your sixth sense. This is the sense of speculation which anyone can do but it really is a worthless sense to have as it is based on pure imagination and nothing else. I'd stick with just your other five senses if I were you.;)

    It looks like it was actually undersold. Some appraised it well over $4 mil.

    Freelancer seems to have more money than sense these days - they've bought TONS of sites, but their core business (i.e. the freelance bidding site) is still a mud-hole of underpriced crap at the bottom end of the scale, IMHO.

    On their About Us page: http://www.freelancer.com/info/about.php under "provenance" you can clearly see that, over the years, they have acquired anything and everything they could to eliminate competition.

    @digitalpoint Maybe that's why they don't care keeping any of those things going, since their goal, as it seems, is to just get them off the web. If that's the case, bye-bye Warriorforum.

    I'm sure that's not their intent... but when it comes down to it, they aren't acquiring sites to run them "as-is", rather the ultimate goal is to grow freelancer.com through those acquisitions.

    well $3.2m is hard earned cash for the owner Allen he did give all his time to the forum and now he can relax away from the forum all in all.
