I know this thread is at least 50% comedy, but in all seriousness, it's nice to know that the site is in good hands.

I bid 75 quatloos. I'm not sure what the going conversion rate is though.

 

Not that I mind the new ownership. You guys are cool. At the very least, you're not Real Military Whateverthefuck. (and this is not meant to be damming with faint praise)

Avatar uploading does not work for me either, nor does importing from a url. Likely a temporary problem as Panda messes around with things. Else, IPBoard picked an excellent time to be weird for us. lol

Oh you

Bottom line though, we actually did this for you guys, for the community. A month or two ago LH appeared, fixed up the site, apologized for the problems, then announced RMN was interested in selling the site. LH was offering it to a staff member first, otherwise it would go to the highest bidder. The staff then got together and decided it would be best if we purchased it as a group. No bidding war, no one man taking over. Equal shares, equal control. We did this in the name of maintaining the status quo. Think what you want about us, we couldn't just let ACS be sold to yet another random buyer, or be shut down. Just think guys, this is the first time since Fan himself owned ACS has our future been in our own control. How often did we worry RMN would just shut us down with no warning? And how many times, when you logged onto ACS and saw the site down, did you think just that? Well, as of about a week ago, the sale was made. And as of today, the site was transferred to one of Pandas servers, and as of today, ACS is back in our hands.

Again, think what you want about myself, Sinner, Zaku, 13, and the rest. Just remember we bought the site for you guys. For the rabid cult. For the psychotic mass that are the fans of Ace Combat.

And Joey wasn't extended an offer to buy...why, exactly?

 

An interesting question, indeed.

 

Now, I do think this is positive, to have ACS ownership in our hands, and it sure is better than having it shut down or remain in RMN hands. But forgive me if I'm left wondering how much of it is actually our own and not, you know, private property when shit gets down to it.
