So for 10 grand we can know for sure who owns franko.org?


I already know who owns the site... ;)

What incentive exists to raise funds for this endeavor? Getting to know who specifically owns the site seems kind of irrelevant.

Funds are not required to be raised.

But you are asking for money. What is the incentive? What will change when you assume ownership?

You will sleep more soundly and softly at night with renewed confidence since you will now know who owns your beloved Amiga.org.

I'd feel a little safer with it in your hands, but if you trust the guy, then I trust your judgement.  Obviously he cares about the community or he wouldn't have stepped up in the first place.

If you would rather have it in your name, then I'm up for a donation.

I usually don't know who owns a site, so just getting a name doesn't really concern me.

With content such as the crappy "new direction" news items, I wouldn't miss the site if the mysterious owner pulled the plug...

That was a joke.  J-O-K-E.  And if you are going to center the whole site on one post, you may want to check out the other side Forums or the "New Posts" tab at the top right-ish of the site to get a broader view of what A.ORG has to offer.

There is something here for everyone, really. ;)

wait, is this the mysterious 'ted' wayne spoke of before 'leaving' the site?  is there any particular reason why he wishes to remain anonymous?  in truth i've never even considered who the site owner is here, or at amigaworld.net, or at amigans.net, or... well, anywhere, really.

if the owner is someone with commercial interests that have some bearing on the community, then, yes, it should be disclosed if for no other reason than it might effect moderation policy. but otherwise i say let the guy stay in the dark if he'd prefer. doesn't really matter, i shouldn't think. :)

The selfsame person who was meant to appear on the Amiga Roundtable Broadcast a while back?

Or was that just a cynical marketing ploy.

Don't get all these crazy rambling about wanting to know who owns the site... :confused:

I mean you correspond here with folk who for the most part you don't know their names, or most of the time even where in the world they are, so what's the big deal about wanting to know who owns the site... :)

I don't care or know who owns FaceBook, YouTube or any other site where I correspond with people so why the "gotta know" here... :confused:

Plus it's also public knowledge who owns this site, so what's all the fuss about... :)

The buck would stop with him. Have a question/problem/suggestion about the site, he'd be the decision maker. No passing it up to the nebulous owner to see if he wants to take action on it.

It was badly timed. Now around April 1st, it would have been amazing!

Wait, you don't know who owns Amigaworld.net or Amigans.net?
