All about Internet Relay Chat

Domain and Site for Grabs

Lately I hardly found the time to put in this site to keep it a worthwhile read. Hence I’m considering letting it go to new hands. After running the site for more then a decade not a decision I took lightly…

The care of our son and other activities made me make this decision. There’s simply too little time to write anything like I used to do. Researching articles and writing an in depth article can easily take 3-4 hours which I simply can’t realize at this moment. Added on top of that I can’t spent as much time actually chatting on IRC either, so I’m starting to loose touch with the community itself.

I guess at this point it would be better if someone with fresh energy and motivation takes over and breathes new life into the site while its still accepted as a quality IRC site and linked from key IRC websites.

I never had commercial motives for the site, but at the same time I can use some income which is easily spent on my son or my other activities. I guess in the hands of an advertising savvy person it can easily make much more per month as I do now with Google Ads and the text-link ads on the bottom (which unfortunately cost me a few Google PR points right now, take ‘m away and PR 6 should pop back up).

The site will come with all the PHP source code (sloppy code, but should be understandable to anyone with basic PHP experience as I’m a n00b myself) and all news present in the database and of course the domain itself will be transferred to you. Once sold you will have to find hosting yourself as the current place is on a server of a friend.

If you have an interest please tell me your plans and bid over the form here. Again I have no commercial motives, but a year Google Ads/text-link income should serve as a decent minimum (currently about 60USD a month).

    Wow, thats sad to hear Asmo – but we all know this.

    Life moves on, new priorities arise, new hobbies are found but the time to manage all of this remains the same.

    May i just suggest taking a small break instead of “getting rid” of the site, maybe one day you will find it more enjoyable to write something for it.

    I had a break pretty much for a while already Phrozen77 ;) I won’t mind helping any new owner(s) out with the site, and forward any tips I might still receive.

    I got a few offers already, but so far they are all people who want it for raising other sites search rankings. I prefer to pass it on to someone who want to keep it an IRC news site.

    a shame really, my own site formed due to the fact IRC-Junkie was top tier program focused – not that thats a bad thing, just not my thing. I do however hope it continues as an IRC site

    All I can say is that I’m sure the site is in good hands, with someone who still has a drive for all things IRC.
