I imagine many of the members here have concerns what this is going to do for us as I do,hopefuly Martin will be able to address them here.

For those who haven't already,read about it here:
http://www.juventuz.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=9312


BTW,I did open one such thread in the Support Forum,but I decided to open another here because hardly anyone goes there nowadays.I'd appreciate it if any moderator would close that one.

Since Desmond opened this thread as a place to get questions answered, perhaps you could post your random comments elsewhere, because we already have at least one other thread on this issue.

Why are you guys worried?

Whoever will run juventuz.com will have to do his/her job as good as Martin did it over the years.

I hope that it will be an "insider" though.

Martin do have a specially high level of diplomacy and unpartiality.... that creates some sort of safe stable harmony in here... wonder the next owner/s would have the same principal...

I have a few questions.

First of all,Martin,will the new owner also take over as a moderator and take the mantle of President of the Forums?

Will you be leaving the forum after selling it?

Is there any form of guarantee the forums will not be closed within say the next two years?

I'm concerned that the new owner will commercialize the entire site and trash it with popups and ads and whatnot,but I'm sure you've probably had similar concerns too.

Will the general populace get to know about all details of the sale?

If they want to.

Don't know yet but I'll certainly no longer hold any position of influence.

Or within two months? No there isn't.

Yes but if you sell something to someone, you can't expect to tell them what to do with it. Thus as said in the announcement, there is a screening process but that's all.

What details are we talking about?
