    This is a great message board, and I'm sure the whole thing cost a whole lot of money. Thanks.

    What company do you think that is?

    I am fairly sure of the name of the owner but not of his company.

    If we knew the name of the company it would probably be a lot easier to contact him I think

    Was the original owner InSanity?

    I think the original owner was skinwalker but I may be mistaken. As for the company that owns it now, I don't know any details at all. And knowing details most likely won't do anything to improve the situation

    Don't think Skinwalker would make sense as he owns the org site.

    Still think it may have been InSanity but am not certain.

    Yes he does, which he started after the abysmal situation that evolved with Bunsen and Beaker, to whom he sold the .com initially

    (In)Sanity was the progenitor and original owner of this, the .com site.
    Skins was the #1 with Admin clearance.

    Hmm, hopefully it's continuing to thrive. I opted to sell as I just didn't have the time to work with the site. The membership has really grown over the years based on the member counts, so no regrets. My biggest success was getting it at the top of the Goggle searches using at the time proprietary technology, common place these days.

    Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name

    The mods have a great deal of control here. They can move threads, stop threads, and suspend membership, all of which is unique. Was it always like this? A more open forum would be better for people. Disciple is not what you need. For example, trolling. If you had a troll on board, everyone in the thread would know. Here, little mistakes send mods off the deep end. Looser features will make this a much more interesting place.
