Thread: PT for sale....
<<  
Sorry, if this sounded grumpy, I didn't get enough sleep last night.
Quick update: Two days ago an anonymous buyer purchased PT for an undisclosed sum. New management is in effect as of today. Best wishes, Grep.
I'm going to keep my identity a secret for a while longer, but it will be announced soon! First order of the day has been to remove all of the advertisements (they won't be coming back, ever) from around the website, and reintroduce the mithril currency, and as a consequence the postal rates/charges and weather system.
Lots more updates coming over the next few months, including a new interactive RPG element before the summer and much, much more
Quick question, though, will basic navigation of the site be improved any? For instance: when you want to visit a thread you must first go to the beginning page, one can't go directly to the last post. Other sites I visit are "powered by V-Bulletin" or something and those all have very easy navigation setups. One thing I would especially like is to be able to read posts I'm responding to while typing. This would be very helpful to my aging brain :-) Not meaning any criticism, I love PT, just a suggestion.
Also best wishes and many thanks to Grep, and many best wishes and thanks also to the new owner! Your health sir!
But in the meanwhile..........
WELCOME BACK HOME!
This all sounds really exciting! I think I'm too new a member to remember you from before Tarrant, so I'll say I'm pleased to make your acquaintance now
So much for it being a surprise, AmariŽ worked it out within half-a-day
Elementary, my dear Watson! It was either you or a very well made clone! But I'm sure the other "oldies" would have recognized you too.
It's good to see you, fluffy fraggle king/Taz/Tarrant/Dawson. And how fitting it is that the third book of the PT ownership saga can be called the Return of the King?
If you are reading Grep/Ant: I hope you will stop by and say hi. You too had many ideas and visions for this site, I'm sad you weren't able to bring them to life. And thank you for paying the bills so we all still could be here, even if you didn't have time to spend here yourself.
Changes? PT sold? I think I'm going into shock! Not being sarcastic, either.. Please tell me all my friends will still be here!
Well, more kind of bought back I built the website that you know and use today, about 12 years ago. There is more information here. I can confirm your friends will still be here and only further improvements will be forthcoming!
Quick question, though, will basic navigation of the site be improved any?
Absolutely, I will start looking into this next week.
WELCOME BACK HOME!
Why thank you, it's good to be back
Tarrant, do I know you by another name??
Maybe Taz? That was how I was originally known here.
And how fitting it is that the third book of the PT ownership saga can be called the Return of the King
Return of the King fraggle indeed
Great to see you back Taz and I'm looking forward to your updates with the site. It is too good a place to allow to stagnate.
My apologies to everyone here for my neglect but 4 years on and I am still trying to get the divorce finalised. It has been very draining but hopefully will be over soon. (How many times have I said that?)
Anyway, thanks to Grep for looking after the site and it's a shame some of his ideas didn't come to fruition and good luck to Taz for the future. I hope to be back on a more regular basis soon.
Ooooooh it's exciting! Indeed it is The Return of the King!
With married life and my work, I've not been around much more than yourself over the past few years, but it's good to see you back. I remember fondly the days when the council members were discussing the possibility of having to bust you out of jail following our copywrite issues. Hopefully it won't come to that again.
Don't you believe it, I have all sorts of mischief planned for 2010
When one takes the first step, the rest follow!!
Good to see you all are drawn to PT still
attracting other veteran members to have a nosey
Attracted? More like summoned
I blame myself for disappearing, however, now I'm back, so must they return. We have much to do this year!
Edited by Taz: Removed link to stop confusing or panic!
I'm locking this thread as the PT for sale thing is an old topic and there are much better and active threads that deserve more attention, also to avoid confusion/panic on the subject.
