BUYING BellGab. YES I'm seriously considering...
« on: June 22, 2017, 11:41:18 PM »
Yes dear BellGabbers, I'm seriously considering to drop some serious coin (high 5 figure) and make MV an offer.

Thanks to some great returns on my investments I have 'play' money and was thinking why not to buy BG.
I have a plan how to turn this *hole into a goldmine, it would become very exciting extremely potent board..(but I keep details secret for now).
What do you hens and cocks think BellGab is worth-?,
Before I have my lawyer present my financial offer to MV I would love to hear your opinions how much this forum that you love so much is worth in real dollars.

If negotiations go well I might be taking all of you on a very wild ride and MADE BellGab GREAT AGAIN 8)

If that were my goal I'd offer $1500-$2,000, but realize it needs fundraisers for server fees. If Art Bell were still on the air it would be double or triple that. I think its sentimental value if anything why MV hangs onto it.

Wow, that is so low, and I'm prepared to offer in the 5 figure range, maybe I'm indeed way too high and should start with high 4 figure offer (cash sale).

$10,000 in cash he'd probably sell without even blinking.

I will share with you one idea that I will introduce if I buy BG.
There will be 'sticky' with listed names of banned members, length of the ban/expiry time, and there will be various banns from 1 hour, 3 hrs, 12, 24 hrs, 3 days, 7 days, 30 days...things like that.
Also there will be removal of words and sentences from posts (posts will be allowed to be displayed but they will be "gutted" if the poster goes ape) so that way the post will have no entertaining value, and that should 'train' posters to be bit more civil...BUT WILD CRAZY POSTING WILL CONTINUE AS IS NOW

ALSO THIS:

I will ban no one, but there will be two restrictions (one related to one particular topic, second to level of vulgarity/personal insults).
You are great poster and have nothing to worry.

If I do buy BellGab I will continue MV's tolerance level, well not 100% but very close.
Little bit of cleanup and bit of discipline will do this site good, otherwise wild-wild west

I'm not trolling at all.
I'm seriously interested.
I have budget 'play' money, got fantastic returns on Stocks and real estate deals so this is "peanuts" money relatively looking at things.
10K 14K absolutely doable.

the current valuation on BellGab.com according to industry experts were sitting right around $48,300.  Remember that is for the domain alone, the forum had a value add boost of approximately $21,750.  Good Luck, I recommend starting higher than that, remember iHeart radio still is in business and owns a misting fountain

I would guess it was valued in the twenties mid-2015.

The butthurt that followed The Quittening affected business no doubt.

I think that added to its value...good times with all the drama...and adding a third popular thread ridiculing a late night paranormal host.

A lot of people took their ball and went home. Some of these were considered 'leaders' of the site.

For some this world ain't ever going to be right - especially when you take a message board that seriously.

O come on now, wonder who is those "industry experts" are.
If adds income would be near that high why to have few months ago big found raising to cover the costs (and that only brought around $600) that was appearantly 1/2 year's cost.

I feel the numbers you give are exaggerated  (quite a bit).

BTW,
This amount $48,300 probably includes yearly expense of keeping Falkie alive, his hovel, his food and food his cats rats.

Yes, you sure sound financially savvy. Offering to spend thousands on a forum that's dedicated to a retired radio host and some old grifter from California. Seems like a sound decision to me...
If I were MV, I'd take any reasonable offer.

As I said I have 'play' money so why not to do something to have fun with it, besides as I also said I have few ideas how to MAKE BellGab GREAT AGAIN.
I will make sure that this will not be money losing enterprise,..at minimum to brake even.
That way I will also give full time job to one of the young computer gigs and I will have fun at the same time, sort of domino effect..and you guys will love it new added features that will make it fun and 'triggering' experience.

This. Also, I imagine many people would leave if this site had new ownership, me included. Just not interested in dealing with a new owner. If I wanted to post on a board like that, I'd hop on over to falkies board. Meh.
