  • Irish Envy: Under New Ownership

    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.)

              Might be one of the first jobs is updating the collection of images/avatars/logos.

                  Can your first act of business be to reveal what Davonte did?

                        Final nail in the coffin of IE.

                        Honestly very happy about the news. Was always bizarre the previous owners since Svoboda weren't ND fans.

                                    Wait how does Cackalacky go from leaving IE to owning the site? lol

                                    Looks like I'll have to remove my adblocker since it's IE-owned.

                                          Back in 2012, I never thought we’d be here. But, here we are. Very excited indeed. Looking forward to many more years of this great community.

                                                Congratulations to our new leadership group! May it return success and much joy to you and your families.

                                                Not sure if this is helpful (as you change software) or not but I had tried to join as a VIP member several times over the years and the software would not take me to payment screen. So perhaps ironing out the model and tech for tiered memberships could help keep the till ringing for the shareholders.

                                                Also, please add me to your list of members that are willing to pitch-in on any working parties should you need help in any way.

                                                  I can see it now on the GoFundMe. Top tier gives you access to the Devonte information, pick one banned member to come back, find out who ratted Panda out, information to which account was Loy, and part ownership in Koonja's TimeShare.

                                                  But seriously, very excited to see where this goes. IE has always been the best community, but I really think that it can get even better with the right leadership. And I got nothing but respect for all of the new owners.

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!
