I am excited and pleased to announce that WebmasterWorld.com has been acquired by Internet Marketing Ninjas. What's it mean:

- I will remain on as an Administrator indefinitely.
- Neil Marshall will remain on as lead site administrator indefinitely.
- Our - now former - legal owner "Webmasterworld Inc." has changed names to Pubcon Inc.
- This does not effect the Pubcon conference series. I will remain CEO of Pubcon Inc. and will continue to thrive.
- Good things on the horizon from IMN (aka: Jim Boykin and formerly We Build Pages.
- Moderators and admins, can now edit me without fear ;-) lol

I think this is an outstanding fit for Webmasteworld. IMN brings resources to WebmasterWorld that will help keep the community strong for many years to come. Anyone who knows Jim Boykin (Founder IMN) knows, that he values this community as much as I do. I expect good things out of IMN to come.

Thank you so much for your support of the site. I would ask that you continue to do so onward into an exciting future.

There will be a press release put out earlier today.

Brett Tabke
Founder Webmasterworld

Well done to all involved in the deal. It sounds beneficial to all parties involved. I include the member base in that statement. I don't belive Brett would part with WebmasterWorld if it wasn't going to benefit the user. WebmasterWorld has been a gem for users who are new to the industry right through to seasoned professionals. Let's all do our part to ensure it stays that way.

Mack.

Thanks again everyone.
Engine is coming over to see me next week (Nov 5-7) so we can start talking about ideas for the future..and how to share those ideas with others.

Until then, there's not really much I can say...except that I agree with with Brett said earlier in this thread...and I do understand many of your concerns, and I understood that prior to deciding to take on WebmasterWorld.

Look, Community is #1 to me.
I'm going to do all I can to preserve this community, and that means listening to, and respecting the community...and making it better when possible...all I ask is that you give me a chance to listen and to help....and please trust that I'm not going to take away from the things that make WebmasterWorld great.

I'll start next week by listening to Neil.

Thanks Jim,

Yes, I too reflect what Brett said, and i'm confident we're in safe hands with Jim. It's 'our' community, so it's up to us what we make it.

He's hardly a new member, but i'd like to welcome Jim back.

In the meantime, let's remember to say hi to the newest members so that they feel welcome. :-)

Cheers
Neil

I suspect that this is an error, right?


My litmus test over the years for adding new features and design has been simple: if it didn't directly support member comments in some way, then it shouldnt be put on the page.
