Thread: Sale of Eyes on Final Fantasy

  1. #1

    ZOMG! Sale of Eyes on Final Fantasy

    I want to take this time to inform you that Warren and I have decided to sell Eyes on Final Fantasy. This was an unexpected development that arouse due to some unfortunate personal decisions/debts I accrued over the past 6 months.

    We will be staying on during the transition to the new ownership. As the sale becomes final, more information will be made available through the Eyes on Final Fantasy site staff. We appreciate everything the Eyes on Final Fantasy Staff has done for the last several years and do not doubt that this site will continue to prosper. I'm sad that it came to this, but I'm sure the site will continue to thrive.

    You gotta do what you gotta do I guess. I hope the new owners don't suck. So far so good, though.

    Hey well I'm happy you guys have kept us afloat. It's unfortunate to hear about your money troubles etc in the real world, so best of luck to you and we'll always be hanging out here if you want to say hi!

    Wow. This is pretty sad. I hope whomever decides to buy this place doesn't completely screw everything up. This place is pretty great right now. But I guess this is the kinda world we live in, and you have to make sure you can provide for your family. No hard feelings, but I trust you will sell to someone who wont just go on a banning spree or delete the site for laughs. Whats the guesstimation of how this will impact the site?

    I hope the sale of this site will be enough to pay off your debts, (I have no clue how they price these kinda things) and best wishes with finding the price your looking for!

    I actually never even knew anything about the people who currently own EoFF. Are they the same people who bought it from Cid or has it been sold again since then?

    Either way yeah, aside of the user makeup, not much has changed since Cid owned this place and I doubt anything huge will change with the new owners. Again, aside of the userbase which is bound to change over time anyway.

    But umm, thanks for keeping this place and telling us about this I guess.

    Its out of our hands now I guess. If I had any money, I'd donate. You guys should be proud, this is one of few clean sites lift on the internet.

    I'm sorry to hear about your debt issues, hope everything works out for you.

    As long as they don't completely screw our beloved EoFF then I'm cool with it. As Dakoda said, hail the new overlords. :vader:

    Because I'm one hell of a butler.

    No, the first buyer kind of sucked and sold it to Michael & Warren, and they didn't suck. They just kind of let us go on.

    Hopefully this is being sold to someone who you guys know pretty well! Is Austin going with you? :O

    Oh oh oh sell it to me! Sell it to me! I will run this website with an iron fist. ALL HAIL EMPEROR PSYCHOTIC I, SAVIOUR OF ALL EoFFKIND!

    Seriously though, thanks for doing what you did, you guys. Not a lot of people would invest in a community like this, and your money paid for my countless hours of entertainment, so cheers, and all the best for the future.
