    I'll be happy to run it again or at least contribute. If we're updating vBulletin software I know there's options for private boards that require stipulations for access, either mod approval or x number of posts, or both.

    True story: a few years ago the Texas football forum Shaggy Bevo went under because they were basically leasing their server on the side with another business sharing the same server. Due to some personal conflict with the guy running Shaggy Bevo the owner of the server took them to court for ownership of the Shaggy Bevo site. I don't remember the details, but somehow the guy won the case and the Shaggy Bevo owner lost control of the site.

    In the actual court case though a lawyer asked the Shaggy Bevo owner what he thought the site was worth. The owner had a rough guess, but the lawyer referred him to a Reddit AMA that he did where a poster asked him the same question, to which he replied "Bout tree fiddy." Obvious reference to South Park. No lie, the lawyer did not get the reference and was trying to make a case that the site was worth $350,000. The Shaggy Bevo owner laughed his ass off in court. In the end they ended up making the new site "Surly Texas" and the old posters on Shaggy Bevo basically destroyed the site on their way out by posting scat porn and dick picks. It got cleaned up, but the only person that still posts on the old site is some new Mod that just talks to himself.

    This site is crap. Wild Bill and I will buy it from you for a quarter of what you paid to save you from losing all of your money.

    Glad to hear the site is in good hands.

    If the vbook is still available after upgrades, I'd like to maintain my bookie rights

    It looks like none of them work and that's why it was turned off.

    We will be upgrading our version of vBulletin so if it's available with that, I am okay with that.


    Hopefully the upgrade of our system will help fix a lot of our current issues.

    I think, if anything, what makes this good is that we have a regular interaction with the posters because we are some of the posters.


    We also all acknowledge that personal opinions is a strong reason that this board is so great.

    The mods heard through the grapevine that IE was being put up for sale... and with consideration to the suggestions, complaints and ideas that we have heard here over the past couple of years, a group of us decided to buy in and take ownership.

    The new ownership group:
    • Whiskeyjack
    • IrishLax
    • Clashmore_Mike
    • BeauBenken
    • Luckylucci
    • Cackalacky
    • IrishLion


    We plan on undertaking a few projects once we've got our feet under us, including updating the vBulletin software, increasing our visibility to the ND internet community, and (most importantly) maintaining and growing the awesome community that all of our users have had a hand in building here at IE.

    There may be a couple short periods of outages soon, such as when the website is officially switched over to us. This will occur in the next couple of days, and there is currently an unspecified time frame for transitioning the site, copying files, etc. There will likely be another outage at some point when we update the vBulletin software, which we will try to announce ahead of time.

    We wanted to make you all aware of the changes should you try to access the website and see that it's not available. If this is the case, we are likely working on transitioning the site's files or upgrading the software. Please be patient if the site is not working or loading when you try to log in, and bear with us while we iron out all the kinks. Any outages should not be overly long.

    HOWEVER, in the event of an extended period of outage, perhaps check the new Irish Envy Twitter page to see what's going on (we currently have 2 [two] followers, so help us grow the account!). We will use it to inform our users of updates/changes/outages etc., but also to share topics and discussions from the site, and to interact with ND football internet in general.

    You can also be on the lookout for a GoFundMe in the future... many of you expressed interest in contributing financially to the website if it meant things would not only continue to run, but improve. We hope to keep our momentum going regardless, but any financial assistance that you all feel generous enough to offer would help us immensely when added to our initial investment.

    We will use this thread to keep the community updated of any other planned changes, issues, scheduled outages, etc., and you all can likewise use it to communicate with us regarding general website issues, questions and concerns.

    Our ownership group consists of moderators, obviously... but we are guys that love to talk about ND football first and foremost, so we are invested in making sure IE is taken care of, regardless of our roles with the site. We want this place to grow and thrive, and we want all of our visitors to see how awesome our community is.

    Now send us any and all potential bribe offers ASAP, as we can't confuse bribes with any potential GoFundMe funds in the future... so if you want someone banned, now is the time to see if you can turn Whiskeyjack corrupt.

    (Seriously, though, we're really excited about this, and we hope you are, too.)
    Congratulations but more importantly, thanks Lads!

    I really appreciate the craic and discourse that this forum provides. There are a LOT of solid contributors from all walks of life. I've made some great "internet friends" and have learned a lot.

    Really appreciate your efforts and the contributions of so many to this forum.

    Cheers and Go Irish!!

    Or use it as a tax deduction. :)

    Congrats guys, this is awesome news! I am a serial lurker, but I think updates to the very old interface here (especially for mobile) will help the community a ton. This is such a great place for ND football discussion. Hereís to hoping it continues to grow and thrive under new ownership!

    Letís see that gofundme!
