    It's been 15 years...

    I first joined this site 15 years ago and I'm thankful to whomever that currently owns this site for keeping this site alive.
    Lot of memories of staying up at night trying to perfect an open mic and a topical...
    Curious to know what all the old RB's are up to these days?
    Hence Forward

    dont be TOO thankful to them...

    because although they kept the site up...

    their refusal to work with admins to bring it up to todays standards have killed the place at the same time...

    Yup.

    I remember running home from school to get in three or four battles a day. This site was super dope back in the day when you could get a battle closed in 10 minutes. Now I'm doing adult shit, paying bills and what not. Time flies.

    This place used to be ridiculous. The names from time gone by, sometimes wonder what they're doing now.

    It's been 14 for me, 12 on this account. Couldn't even remember the email/password for the original.

    What? refusal to work with admin? YOu mean admin's refusal to do anything other then ghost the site and make shitty cover pages?

    are you telling me that Strobe ever put in any effort to do anything but keep the bill paid?
    maybe admins was the wrong word... it wasnt just admins... regular members also.. way back before even the RIA split and all that people had been trying to work with him to bring the place up to par... before the admins youre referring to even came into play...

    instead its stuck here as a relic of the past going nowhere... and he refuses any major changes to the platform...

    A waste, because when RIA was up they did everything to bring us back here, and then soon after RIA vanished they sat on their hands and did nothing again.

    @Amen what do you think it costs to get this site up and hosted?

    I'd buy it from the admin and just let you guys do whatever you wanted from it, if he just wants to afk / ghost it.

    nah it isn't and your right, even I tried to buy many years ago and I even proposed a new platform idea that would take us into the new age, I offered to give that man $5,000 without a question, fuck it tho.

    If I got offered 5g's for this tonight id take it and run.

    What was his objection?

    I've been buying and flipping businesses for a decade.

    Pretty sure we could find some common ground.

    I'm sure he has goals with this site. There are ways to move him further towards his goals while also keeping this shit serving the people.

    im pretty sure he never gave a clear answer on why not, just flat out refused entirely... im not sure on that thopugh, this is all info through other members...but it was first hand...have known quite a few people through here that tried...

    you can attempt it..
    but as far as i understand, first you wait forever to even be able to talk to him..and then he just refuses...

    Re: It's been 15 years...

    The man doesn't want to sell, period.



    Many, many, MANY members have made threads and presumably sent him PM's (among other forms of contact) and he just doesn't seem interested.


    Maybe he's looking for a ridiculous amount of money, maybe this site is some kind of birth right, who knows. Haven't seen strobe in more than a decade.
