I was here once before to make an offer on Music-Discussion to buy the forum database to be able to merge it with a new project. When my offer was rejected I decided to give up, and concentrate more on my job, but now I'm back.
Let me first introduce myself; I am Mike, a web designer and developer. I have developed my own forum software (Trasion forum software) in the past, and released it to only a select amount of people. I plan on possibly using this software to run the Music-Discussion forum if I'm granted permission to buy it.
Yes, if I bought Music-Discussion, there would be changes made. My ultimate goal is to have a social network for music lovers of sorts. There would be the forums of course, where people can discuss music, but there would be a lot more added as well. Members profiles would be transformed to have more fields, and be more social network-like. It would be easier to connect with friends and bands. Another change would be a "Wiki", where people can make pages for bands and update it with pictures, songs, bios, and much more about bands.
This is honestly not a scheme to take your database then change it into a money maker forum like I was accused of last time I was here. I'd appreciate it if comments this time were kept professional and not insulting me for my attempt to purchase this wonderful forum. This community is still growing, and I'd love to be able to expand it to an even greater level.
I'd appreciate a response from the administrator here.
