I give up... MH for sale~

+ posted by njt in Site News on Apr 1, 2009 04:26



MangaHelpers Community,

I am saddened to announce that I will be putting this site up for sale, these economic problems and the skyrocketing price of love hotels means I can no longer afford to run this site. As of this moment I am putting up a bid for this site, if you wish to bid please reply with your bid and I will get in contact with the highest bidder at the end of the day if I believe your bid to be serious.

Of course if you would like to buy the site straight up no bidding, no questions asked that can be arranged for a price of around 10 million USD; contact me at njt(a-t-mark-goes-here)mangahelpers.com

We here at MangaHelpers truly hope you can continue to enjoy this site under the winner of the bidding for many more years to come.

Thanks for your time,
NJT

Hi! I'm interested in buying MangaHelpers. $50K sounds like a fair starting price, and I'm even willing to pay you to help out with the transition. My budget is pretty good so cost is not too big a problem as long as it's reasonable.

I'll need to see site statistics, as well as statements showing the total cost of running the site. I'm thinking of putting a lot more ads up to curb the cost — do you think this is a good idea? If you're really interested in selling (this isn't an April Fools' joke, right?), I'd love to discuss the details with you.

And while you're at it, please e-mail me your full name, bank account number, social security, date and place of birth, pet's name, mother's maiden name, and other relevant information that will help make me — I mean you! — a very rich person. My address is aripl@folos.com. I look forward to doing business with you.

Well ..... It's hard to come up with original ideas every year.
Hopefully people don't find it too confusing, hehehe ....
But as some pointed out ..... pinkifying and borkifying the site was not funny anymore.

On the other points ... hehehe .... NJT, the nice number in the news entry field named "Registered"? How appropriate ^_^;

Hmmm 10 million dollars! After an in-depth conversation with my bank manager, family and entire soft toy collection it was decided that was sadly totally unacceptable. What seemed more appropriate was a couple of large chocolate Easter eggs, A large Easter bunny, XXXXXXXX quid and a brick, attractively wrapped in purple wrapping paper?

Damn those Love Hotels being so expensive!
