    I'll try to respond to a couple questions here. Things like registrations and such will remain unchanged. Same with Red Stars. As for new forums and such, we'll look to the moderator team to guide thinking on this. We hope our initial contributions are less visible, in terms of tech and business infrastructure.

    Joe...

    Congratulations on the sale. You've done something impressive here at BikeForums. And you've weathered a lot. The Al Qaeda hack and the Bicycle Smile thread being two of them. I hope you feel proud. And do well with your future ventures.

    Joe - congratulations and thank you for establishing this site. It is fantastic, and because I have had a little experience being a administrator on a much smaller bird watching list server, I can truly appreciate the hassles and hard work that went into keeping BF up and running. You have truly created value and I am sure that Internet Brands will help to continue improving BF. I, too, hope the red star continues to do the trick. Again, congratulations and many thanks.

    Hmmm, internet brands also owns Flyertalk.com. Flyertalk is a great site.

    That being said:

    Joe, is the rumour true that Shadiyah is going to kidnap you to Costa Rica where you can live off fresh fruits and vegatables and perhaps a few Piņa Coladas thrown in for good measure...

    Is it kidnapping if I go willingly?

    "I’m also looking forward to having access to unlimited time with their programmers and server techs".

    I think a dose of reality would be useful. If you can get unlimited time with them, there is a problem, they aren't worth a damn and there is too much overhead. More likely you will have to fight like heck amongst others to get access to their best programmers - a great coder is worth 10x all the others.
    Andiamo!!

    I'm sure Joe will still want that, and will wear it with pride. He gets to spend more time riding now.
