I was hoping that one of us would know something about this sorta thing.

Here's what little I have learned:

We need a domain name. In our case, we want YaHooka.com, so testclear would have to sell it to us. The average price for a great name is 5-10k, Sex.com sold for millions. I can't see paying more than a couple hundred for our name.

Then we need a web host. They run about $10-$15 bucks a month.

The we need the forum software. I guess this would be vbulliten? I can't find a current price but some ppl were talking like 300 bucks, back in 2010. There is other software that does the same thing, but I know nothing about it. Then there are the yearly update fees, which were running about $30 per year (back in 2010).

This is all I know, so far. Not much.

So, what I'm saying is let's keep this ball rolling. Share what you know.

I got an email from testclear. It says:

"Do you have some kind of plan in mind on what you would do with Yahooka if given ownership?"

So, do we?

I would like to keep it the same. A pot forum. Part of our mission statement: "uniting our minds in conversation... while Portraying a Positive Image of marijuana and marijuana users to the world."

Also, how would we own it? As a group? A co-op? Any lawyers out there?

I was originally thinking that if everyone chipped in around 50 bucks each, that would give us the necessary funds to at least get a good start. I don't have the funds to do this on my own, so if there is someone who is willing and has money, speak up.

Re: What we will do with the forum-

Testclear,

Fix the damn forum issues.

That is all.

Love,
YaHooka


I mean, isn't that basically all we want?

It sounds like the cost of buying the domain name is the most immediate hurdle. Since testclear owns the name, I would think that it's their call on what that cost ends up being.


I'd say we need to make sure that we could actually afford to pay whatever is asked for it - because if 5-10k is the avg price and testclear asks for the avg price - 50 bucks from each of us isn't gonna make a big dent in that...

What value does an unlisted/blocked domain hold?

Outside of the exclusive ad roll there isn't much but test's good will and the few of us holding this place together.

Proportionate ownership based on money spent and time passed!




^
a simple formula I might suggest. m(i) is the money invested for a particular month, t(i) is how many months ago the investment was made.
N is the set of investments for who we want to know their percent of ownership (m, t couples)
K is the set of people who make investments
N_k is the set of investments for a particular person in K

It favors investments in yahooka made more recently, where the sigma in the exponent can be tweaked to our liking. For example, sigma = 4, after 6 months the investment loses about 75% of its weighting - increase sigma and you increase how long an investment keeps its value over time.



And maybe introduce something that says like, 50% of the total ownership is determined by the initial cost in buying the domain name, and that part of it doesn't decay with time.

Also, now i seriously love yahooka and it is my internet home and you guys are straight up family and i want/need to keep talking to you till the day i die...

But no fucking way is this place worth 5-10 grand lol...
Even split up among us all... no fucking way lol.
Theres what, like 20 of us left? If that?

If it comes down to it we could always just make a subreddit. (Honestly after typing that, that is totally a decent idea...would be much easier to get new members too)

There is a subreddit. Killa and Dan are mods I think. It sucks.

Oh. Well of course it sucks now while we still have yahooka. Just like there is a yahooka facebook page. Its redundant.

If we lose this site though or migrate by choice, it would perfectly suit our needs and then some.


Tbh though im perfectly content already. I browse on mobile through chrome and have 0 problems or warnings.

I think Yahooka as a domain should be preserved. Its OG as fuck from the early internet days.

I said, "All we really want is to fix the forum issues and just keep it like it is."

testclear replied, "Who is going to fix it? How are they going to fix it?

I am just looking for a good game plan."
