    This is not definite but maybe selling The Apple Forum; http://theappleforum.co.uk

    Total posts 2145 | Total topics 258 | Total members 39

    The template is slandered but I have edited a few things such as navigation buttons and new/read/locked topics.

    Also is advert free for 6 months.

    I think the forum has much potential in the right hands.

    Offers? :)

    I think it can do better with someone else.

    Also, I do not really have the time to run a forum.

    £20, which is not much when you can advertise other forums for money.

    So your selling a forum you spent no money on (except the domain), is freely hosted on myfreeforum, has less than 2,500 posts and less than 40 members? What do you expect to get as the vast majority on this forum is more than capable of getting those stats in a matter of days, maybe a couple of weeks ~confuse~

    I have spent £11 on banner, another banner and the navigation bar and £20 on advert free.

    And it has over 2,500 posts and 40 members.

    ~confuse~

    No, £11 on banner, another banner and navigation bar. -~-

    It is £65 to go to a new host, because of the back up.

    yeah it would make sense, just use a crawler and convert for free, then sell.

    Good luck Keaton, I can't see you being able to sell this forum to be honest

    If it's freely hosted, the only thing I'm willing to offer up is FP Cash, which Fowler indeed states is pretty worthless. And I can only offer 500 FP Cash for it.

    I would just keep it.
