Ski-Whiz (Rick) message from Dabears.com

I just wanted to talk to you about something that is going to be happening here soon. I have 100% lost interest in rooting for Chicago. I haven't lived in Chicago for years. I don't like the violence I see in Chicago. I don't agree with the liberal policies Illinois has. I have even grown apart from watching any NFL games.

One team I will be rooting for is Jacksonville. Since I live extremely close, and I built my retirement home here, I feel I should terminate my support for the Bears. What does this mean?

Well, I was kind of hoping with relaxing the rules, this place wouldn't have to have mods. I also wanted to make it more fun. Maybe in hopes that it would attract me back to this place.

Come Nov 8th, this place will be shut down. I've been trying to find people who want to take this place over. Some of the admin's have shown interest, but stop when I tell them I pay $75 a month for the server bill. This isn't 100% out of pocket. I tend to get between $30-$100 per month in advertising. I haven't even pushed it much. There are ways to have more advertisements, and also companies who want to put things on this site. So its not all about losing $75 a month. This doesn't even include the Superfan option I used.

Why am I telling you this? I know you have a deep affect for the Bears, and I'm trying to find someone to take this off my hands rather than just turn off DaBears.com. Now I did pay good money for this domain. So whoever takes over this site (if any), we'd have to work something out. They would have 100% control. Meaning if they removed me or anyone else, I wouldn't care. I wouldn't be a part of this site in any way. Managing the site isn't as hard as it seems.

Bottom line, I have zero interest in this place, or the Bears.

The biggest hurdle is the cost. I can help anyone run this place (train them).

If you know someone else who might be interested in the group over at the other place that Alex started, let me know.

I'd much rather turn the site over, than turn it off. If I don't get any interest, I may even turn this site off early.

Rick

JJ asked if I would pass this on to this board. Not  sure why but since JJ asked i agreed. The board that JJ joined was build because posters got tried of all the BS from poster who seem to have come over from CCS. His new forum has 40 members as of today all from different forums.

Totally confused.......... what is this about exactly?  I'm not familiar with these names so I can't tell but only assume this is not about "this" site shutting down but rather another site name "dabears" shutting down?

 

EDIT: Also, this Rick dude appears to me to be a bandwagon fairweather bitch.  So fuck you Rick, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

I think it makes sense to merge. That MB isn't like CCS at all. The posters are pretty knowledgeable, and the "go f-yourself stuff is to a minimum.

It sounds like it's self sustaining, so Cal, maybe you should look into this.

I can only assume that is why JJ wanted to share it with us. Out of curiosity does anyone here have any contact with a memebr there?

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

............. Gonna guess 9 hours before this thread has to be moved to the adults forum now.  Way to go Cal.  SMH  Wait.  I haven't seen Mr. O around for months, maybe not.  NM.

Is this the site being referenced?

http://www.dabears.com/categories/chicago-bears-nfl-forums.8/

 

This one gets you on the main Bears forum page. But I have to say, the site looks different, and not in a good way. The Bears logo and colors are gone.

Why buy him out? Why merge? Just send an invitation to join this board to all current members there. Then Rick can go enjoy his retirement and future Jaguars fandom. Happy retirement Rick, hope you don't off yourself in the near future due to rooting for the Jags. If you need a wagon for your new band of Jags fans, contact Nak here on this board as he has several low mileage models to choose from for discerning fans like you!

You just wait till next year!
