I've been following the development of the 2020 Supra and C8 Corvette for what seems like an eternity. The forums dedicated to the various brands and models enjoy a cult-like following. Owners, enthusiasts and buyers are often way ahead of traditional media with sightings, rumors or leaked images. These forums have now become the go-to place for editors, writers and industry folks who need to be on the editorial edge. I've recently noticed a trend with some of these automotive news sites as they have began citing the source of their information, which is usually one of the forums. For years, I've watched our discussions become the latest news stories for several yachting magazines and websites, yet they have never given credit to the members of YF. I suppose if we weren't an online magazine they saw as a threat to their business model, you guys would get more credit. On that note, it's time to disclose something... about 4 years ago I was contacted by a large publishing conglomerate that was interested in acquiring YachtForums. I kept in contact with them, mostly for curiosity sake. They own a good number of titles, both print and digital. They were also in the show business, but recently sold their interest. As their print model is drying up, they became more serious about moving forward with an acquisition. Their plan was to use YF as an up-sell to prolong their print model. I'd like to think I'm smart enough to recognize opportunities like this may only happen once or twice in a lifetime. An NDA was inbound, but I declined. Sometimes it's not about money. It's about doing something you love and if you’re lucky, maybe making a difference. Although I have days that my brain is fried and my eyeballs are hard boiled, I’m proud of the resource we're building. To all you guys that add to the collective knowledge base, thank you for being here with me, Ron, Lars and Kevin. We couldn't do it without you.
