If here is still for sale in a couple of months then I might be interested but right now I dont have the monies. Does the site make money? As it is or would it be up to the new owner to think of ingenius ways to make revenue.

Sling... Never would suggest less than the best for a gentleman like you. But.... selfishly, I hope you're stuck with us!!!! You have done an exemplary job keeping this a great fraternity of good people. Over the years, have seen some excellent forums evolve into mindless personal attacks and uncontrolled egos. ShotTalk has remained the pinnacle of the industry.... a ray of sunshine amongst stormclouds of manure.

Lives change. Needs change. Circumstances of family, finances, and feelings change. So, we do understand you may well have to turn over the reins to another. We understand... we don't have to eagerly anticipate such a change.

No matter what happens with ShotTalk, we do wish you only the best. Keep us posted. Keep your chin up. PM us if you need moral support.

Thanks again!!!!!!!

You better stick around, lord knows we don't have enough people busting my balls on here. :D

I'll buy this for 12k, turn it into Jeff's Place, then hold it for ransom for a collective to get it back...unless you guys actually love me that much!

Sling, if I bought this place, you would be the first person Id ban.

Just kidding, I wish I had the cash for it, part of me is interested, the other part is broke.

How many active members post here? Everybody pitch in $20 or whatever, and Shottalk can be a corporation! Sling, you can stay on as CEO and Administrator. :D

I'll continue to contribute my radiant personality, fa sho fa sho.

Honestly, we all know you're in the red here Sling, but if you could possibly oblige some of us with numbers, I bet we could bring something up decent looking for ya!

To quote an old song from the Australian rock group "Mental as Anything" ...

Whats the skinny Sling? Are you just tired of running the board? If so, I understand, and can accept that. But if its finances, give us regs a chance to help out. Personally, I love the way you've run Shot Talk, and don't relish the idea of it changing hands. So if there is anything we can do to help out, let us know? I was more than happy to pony up for the membership, and was actually surprised it was a one time deal. Would it help out if we paid yearly?

I love this place, so much so I'm not even a member of any other golf forums. Like I said, I have no problem paying yearly, perhaps even raising the cost of the premium membership?

Just an idea?
