.NET IS FOR SALE
Tue Apr 10, 2018 6:35 pm
  • .NETers,
    After 11 years of ownership at Seahawks.NET, myself and my co-owner (Anguish) feel it’s the right time to step away and pass the reigns onto the next person or group. It’s been an amazing ride, and I appreciate everything each one of you have done to make this the largest Seahawks message board online. But .NET deserves an owner that is fully committed to it, and for the past year or so, that just hasn’t been the case with me.

    So, like the original owner (Aros) before me, I’m asking for interested parties to contact me via email using rockhawk(at)seahawks.net (for those that are unaware, replace the (at) with @). We’d prefer to sell it to a .NET person or group to keep the site not-for-profit and ad-free as you know it now, so please reach out if interested.

    To be transparent, we are selling the site, not giving it away. After 11 years I’ve put more than $25k out of my own pocket with the rest being donated or provided via the Amazon link, and though I’m not requesting that much, I just need those interested to understand the costs we’ve incurred. If you’re interested, email me and we can talk numbers. I’ll also provide the site analytics from Google on request, showing the very large amount of views and unique visitors we get on a daily basis.

    A sincere thank you to all of those who have donated your hard-earned money to the site over the years. I didn't do a great job at sending a thank you to each of those, so I hope this will do. It was greatly appreciated.

    Thank you to all of my volunteer staff, both current and past for donating their time to this site simply for the love of the Seahawks and this community. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that effort & sacrifice.

    Here’s to the next evolution & phase of Seahawks.NET! I’m excited to hear from you and what ideas you might have for the future!
    Go Hawks!

  • I might be able to swing $2-3k but that isn't going to cut it. Even then i'd bring in ads. As a fan I love this place and a ad or two on the side wouldn't change that feeling for me.

    Thanks man, the only other 2 options is go away or sell to an outside agency that will either integrate into their current site or monetize it heavily. Not my favorite choices.

  • Is there any market for various seahawk bloggers to pay a small fee for front page publicity? I mean there are a number of great seahawk sites out there that might be trying to turn a profit, if they want add space for a small fee .net has a primo target audience.

    Yeah lest sell space to people and become like every other site telling the ownership they will shut us down if they don't show everyone's ads and dictate content etc. We have been there already, why Aros split off from those places to begin with.

  • Why not just amp the donations? It isn’t advertised that much other than the link that is stickied. I don’t think about it until told that we need some donations. Just a question.

  • It used to be when you donate here they would post your name which I thought was kinda cool, but whoever used to do that must have stopped. I remember reading someone say it's a little discouraging.

    The avatar or title (I forget exactly what it was) showing you were a contributor was cool but that seems to be gone now too.

    I guess my point is while you guys desperately need contributions to keep this forum going you kinda stopped making the donators feel special.

    It would be nice to see the donation total updated with how much more is needed. Maybe give out a few perks to those who contribute an more donations will come in.

    I completely agree, and this is squarely on me. I simply had too much going on in my real life to dedicate the programming time needed to assign these custom ranks for donations, then remove them after 12 months. I sincerely apologize for that as it was never my intent to not recognize those that did donate, but it falls squarely on me for stopping that practice. I totally agree that this may have led to folks like yourself not caring to donate anymore without getting as much as a thank you note, and thus, why I want a new leadership person/team to take over and do all the things I'm no longer able to do after all these years.

    I know it's way too late, but thank you very much for your donation(s), and everyone else over the years.

    Lets state the obvious, you have 3300 plus posts, there are over 10,000 members and 1000's more lurkers that come in and read. It's a respected Forum and just because some people have little to offer to conversations other then just drama others come here for a pulse of the fan base, information and understanding. Maybe in another 3300 plus posts that will become clearer for you.

  • Some of us have spent a decade or better donating our time, knowledge, energy and cold hard cash in order to give back to the Seahawks fan community as a whole. Considering that almost entirely since its inception, this message board (which actually USED to be a community) has been run without the ownership trying to cash in on its membership through monetization, should be a testament to just how much we all have cared for the community, and should serve as a guide as to why this offer is being put on the table. Value is not always measured in dollars. YMMV.
