I love seeing the site up. I just wanted everyone to know I will be having limited involvement in 285 Bound going forward. As with all affiliates I am mostly a tech, website, forums moderation and social media consultant and trainer so that owners can get out into the community. I will be involved with supervision of moderation if needed. It appears the new owner will be following that same philosophy as follows.

"If you don’t moderate your forum, it is likely to be overwhelmed with spam – this is the primary reason why we ensure all the forums have some degree of moderation. And it takes volunteers and time to do that.

The vision and mission of this site is to bring the community together and have a special place to do that. We also hope to build a model for other communities to do that as well. We moderate only to protect our members and the site from harm. So most of that moderation will be for spam and people looking to disrupt the site. The forums need regular maintenance and we view moderation more as keeping the site running. Any rules will be for that purpose.

We have done extensive research how how to do this and we will tweak things as time goes along. We welcome your input and it is appreciated."

I congratulation the new owner and I will be here for anything you guys need.

Thank you,

Founder Communities Bound and 285bound.com
