Commercial

I remember back in the day.. I'm talking years ago. There was a commercial that was on my schools channel 1 during homeroom. Was that for this site? ;)

Branden used to pay for adverts on MTV. It used to pull in hundreds of users every single day. It was an interview he did for some TV station with a few graphics thrown in.



I never saw it, but I remember that it was $1500 a month. They stopped as soon as Branden handed the site over.

tbh I can't even remember. He tried to sell it to a guy called Darren and then I think that Darren put it on ebay and then Mike bought it.



Or some shit like that. I was a helplink mentor at the time and probably banned from the support groups for whatever reason it was then so I didn't hear much about it. I was also ignoring Branden about that time too, I thought it was dispicable that he'd try and SELL this site.

Yeah, it got confused somewhere along the way.



The site was never paid for by the people who bought it off Branden. Then the people who were supposed to buy it put it on ebay and then Mike bought it off them.



Branden tried to take the site back recently but failed because of silly Nominet.

So really, the people in charge aren't in charge. Interesting.



I was chat staff at the time and didn't really like the groups. Haha.. Chat staff, that was good stuff actually. The chat here is pretty good, in my opinion.

Well they are but if Branden was gonna get legal on their asses then they wouldn't be for very long. The original contract was never fulfilled and Mike entered into a contract which was already voided by the other one not being seen out.



So yeah, technically the whole site still belongs to Branden but he'd have to sue for it in the UK. I think? If Mike wanted to sue him he'd have to do it in the district of Lawton, OK where Branden's gran is like the district judge or some shit like that.

I thought people knew this stuff. It's not a secret or anything I don't think. It all happened like 2 years ago now though, so people forget and move on.



I've forgotten a lot of it. Wasn't Phillip trying to convince Mike to let him take over at one point? I know that arrangements were being made sometime for me to meet Mike in London to discuss things.



Never happened, it's stayed like this since then really.
