The other day I purchased a vBulletin license, and today I just installed vBulletin to replace the old forum software. The move to vBulletin will make things much smoother, with new/enhanced features, and the ease of use.

There was one problem, however :rolleyes:. I was unable to transfer the old posts and members to this new forum system. I have e-mailed all previous members about this, and I apologize for all the inconvenience, I can tell you this won't happen again.

Anyways, today, and during the next few days I will be working on the look on this site, customizing it, instead of using vB's default templates colors. :cool:

Regards,
Dan Gessler

And it sure did pick up speed rather quickly. Look how big it's gotten today, heh.

Hey Dan, Is is correct you were 14 when you started DNF and 15 or 16 when you sold it?

P.S. I sure regret not buying it from you (for that amazingly low price) when I had it within my grasp as I did in 2002. Not buying it was the biggest (by a mile) financial error I have since I have been active with websites/domains on the internet going back to 1996! I think about the missed opportunity all the time.

Hey Dan!

Good to see you still around, my name is also Daniel, and I am only 16...

You have become somewhat of a legend around here, this is an amazing forum you created!

I guess I'm one of the few who WITNESSED the drama first hand when it was unfolding back in the summer of 2002 AND still actively posting here now. Hmm ...

Yes, and it was really some Drama. You, Duke, Myself and a few others seem to be the more active remnants left over from those early days! Even less of us left from the early wild days of the old Afternic and Great Domains boards.

Too bad (IMO) the chain of events from the summer of 02 DNF sale ended-up causing other forum boards to get started. I believe we would all be better off if there were just one large forum vs 3 smaller ones. What with all the $ DotComGod has perhaps he could buy the other 2 main boards and in effect corner the market! :cool:

I think Adam tried to buy the other boards, but the owners wont sell them...

I hear that sale was quite the brew-ha-ha (online of course)....

If I told you about the dynamics of the old DNF sale you would be amazed it could happen. One of the odd things is no one seemed to know Dan's tender age at the time (including from what I understood) the original 3 DNF Mods (who now of course run their own forum board). One reason the sale to myself fell thru was being slow and reluctant to contract with a minor.
 

The Rule #1

Do not insult any other member. Be polite and do business. Thank you!
