arfmagazine.com Poll: Should We Stay Or Should We Go! by: normal mc

Tanner and I recieved an unsolicited offer to purchase the domain www.arfmagazine.com for a grand sum of $1500.00.

This may be our only chance to make money from the site.

So I leave it up to you, good people of ARF... do we sell? Chalk it up as an interesting experiment, find a new domain name and go from there? Take the money and spend it on hookers and blow? Or do we stand firm and keep the good ship ARF afloat?

It's up to you, New York!

Have you people no shame? No sense of community?

Why am I asking this?

Norm, you've just finally rubbed off on me, I'm now officially apathetic. You can still have arfmagazine...just call it something else.

How did me rubbing off on you make you apathetic? That doesn't make sense!

Whatever!

Honestly, I don't know if selling would be the "right thing to do". Unless you would be satisfied with changing the domain name to something very similar, like arfie.com or arfmagazine2.com. But in all reality, you'd be giving up rights to all the hard work and dedication that you two put into this site over the years. $1500 is a lot of money, but I am not so sure if it is a fair trade.

I say you try to drive the price up a little bit and see if you can get some more cash for it. Then as tanner would say if "the price is right" make some dough and go with a new domain.

Its up to you guys. I would like to see the name stay, it was your brain child. Is an arf by any other name still the same?

I'm interested as to why someone wants to buy it in the fist place.
