to the guys that run sevenforums...

Is this your main job running the site or just something on the side that you do for fun? Also how did the site get started?

Just wondering

This would be an answer for Zero10 - from what I understand he owns the site as part of his business; Designer Media Ltd. Most, if not all? of us, are volunteers that are here to learn and help others out.

The difficult part is to find the right buyer. I have seen a couple of forums that were sold in the past - and they all went downhill from there. It needs the enthusiastic and dedicated people to make forums work. Running a forum for commercial gain only does not seem to function.
