    So, are we a smaller forum that you intend to test changes that you plan on implementing over there?

    Nope. I haven't even thought about it actually--they're very different communities.

    Once I finish cleaning up spam, and dealing with ads/forum software migration, there's not a much left that I plan to do around here. Probably setup an email newsletter that surfaces the most interesting threads to inactive users to try and get them to return, basic stuff like that.

    I purchased SJ because an acquaintance who knew I run websites approached me and asked if I was interested in buying this site. I'd never heard of it before, but I took a look--community is solid, a moderation team that looked like I could support, and a topic that was somewhat personally interesting--so made an offer that made sense from a business perspective and was able to close the deal.

    As I said from the beginning, this site runs pretty well, and I don't plan to change a whole lot here other than:
    1) swap forum software
    2) no NSFW images
    3) enforce the no personal attacks/bickering/trolling by being faster to ban than might have happened in the past.

    Gotta ask to the wider audience, what is so concerning about new ownership? The cynicism is bubbling below the surface.

    I hear the Poin Files are under attack. Say it ain't so!

    I would hope not. It's one of the few threads that virtually everyone can agree on, with the exception of "6 or no 6?"

    If the Poin Files is outlawed, the terrorists have won.

    Outlawing the Poin Files would be the New Coke moment for this board.
