Its been awhile that ive been here. Putting aside that I have had good reasons for that my current visit does not deal with that.
Id like to come straight to the point.
Based on my point of view TLR is almost dead or at least in a state of coma. A few old members still visit it from time to time, a very few new members (one or two per month) post their questions which barely get answered (often due to the lack of valid answers). That is just my observation and if you are honest to yourself and look at the noticable amount of threads with the content "what happend to lancersreactor?" you will come to the same conclusion.
Who ever keeps this site hosted (azza or ... dunno) keeps the status quo (for meanwhile 3 years)... which is not that much anymore.
I came here because I want something.
I want the site... I want TLR. And yes I know... I am very direct.
The current owners can decide if they want to keep it dying slowly or if they allow me to rebuild it. They can keep the domain if they want... I just want the site and all neccessary data to turn it into an active FL site again.
Consider it a safety contract.
I get the site and all data hosted on it and in exchange you get a working community as I definitly have the skills and the will to make it active again.
If the domain owner thinks I am doing shit then he can easily redirect the domain to a new forum/site.
If I think that the domain owner does crap (just like in the past) then its my turn to decide what I do with the site.
Just like I said... a safety contract. If both sides stay fair and follow the rules the community will be just fine and take benefit of everything we do. My personal benefit in this deal is stability.
It is getting 11 years that I am part of the lancer community. 7 of those years i was member of TLR, advisor of the TLR owners for a long time aswell and even TLR admin in times that my help was requested. I know how to build up communities, i know how to run them. My own site is one of the fastest growing Freelancer communities on the net, so i know what i am talking about.
The concept Ive in mind is not easy to be done nor will it lead to fast changes... everything needs time to grow.
What I have to offer are the resources and the knowledge to get the ball rolling again.
All i need from you is the chance to create a proper playground and a few team players to run a first match.
My offer stands... say "yes" or say "no" ... it is about your site.
