My name is LJ. (if I ever buy CB ill let you know my real name). I'm 19 and a web design & developer.

JuSun hasn't updated Createblog in about 2 years, and I think I can build Createblog back up and give it, it's life back. I promise it'll be better then how it is now.

So if anybody has a way to contact jusun-Lee. Please do and say someone wants to buy CB for a good price. I'm serious about this offer.

Anymore questions, please ask.

Before anyone's gonna help you buy cB, you better tell everyone who you are first.
goneagain
Done. I actually don't know what to say about myself online. I would tell you my old account on CB but I forgot it. I think it was deleted.
Simba
Eh, usually I would care more who you are if you're trying to buy cB, but honestly, anyone's gotta be better than Jusun's negligence.

Even then, good luck getting Jusun to give it up to you.
goneagain
CB has only 4 years to live, and the last time it was updated was in 2008. I loved CB, the first forum I ever went to. and, I would hate to see it to die.

yeah but would you be a bitch ass prick who permabans me? if so gtfo
brooklyneast05
didn't tung offer to buy cb once
sixfive
he has a harem of 14 year olds that bring in at least 3 dollars per day
goneagain
Ill unbann everyone and give them a 2nd chance imho.

Don't know why the old peeps are still banned. They can't do anything now.
mipadi
What are your plans to restore it to its former glory?
goneagain
If I buy CB, ill get the staff together and we can think of what we can do and my ideas. Right now I don't want to discuss it. On less it's with Jusun.


Don't worry guys I won't shut it down and sell it to some other dude.
sixfive
What ideas are going to get cB going again? Isn't the "degree of going" based on user activity and interaction on the forum? What does the staff need to do? How are you going to assemble a voluntary staff on a forum that doesn't even require that much moderation?
goneagain
Not now, but once CB gets going again then wouldn't we need more mods?
Also, a whole new CB. Different look, and more features.. For members and for staff.



Is Createblog forum from MYBB?
sixfive
Do you know how cB got it's original userbase? What would you do to bring more people here? How are you going to get people here to post more? All of this is out of your control amigo.
Blyat
What the hell?


No offense but people who have actually been here more (cause you kindof went M.I.A for prolly a good year or two) someone else has better potential who's on more periodically than you will get i.t
Tomates
Wait are you serious about buying Createblog?

Bad Idea. There were trolls who deserved to be banned

Well it seems like you don't really have a plan atm. and saying you don't wanna talk about won't get you any perks.

I'm sorry I just don't know if I trust your opinions



Like enough that I trust Steven more than you.

Yeah but you mentioned how you haven't even been on cB in a while. Like Steph (Uso) said. If anyone were to buy createblog Jusun would give it to someone who he has known and trusts and has actually been on cB longer.
I actually trust Steven more to own cB.

How do you know it only has four years to live? What proof do you have that says that? Did a crystal ball tell you?

I know Jusun banned people for certain reasons. Also would you unban all the trolls that made fun of people or spammed the forum?

You should try to recruit more people on here before talking about how you want to buy cB. You also say you don't want to discuss it. The only reason I'm feeling so "defensive" is because I feel you really don't have a plan and that you're someone whose really cocky and needs to get off their high horse.

Right, so recruit more people. Actually do something then. Yeah cB is a little dead than it was before. But do you think that if you were automatically the new owner then more people would flood in? Even though Jusun isn't active anymore its not like this whole forum has gone completely down hill. We still have mods that do their jobs and there are still people who submit graphics.
creole
It's better than gaining nothing. Go for it.
brooklyneast05
why even bother? just go make a new site. that's what it would take anyway. cb isn't gonna be restored because there isn't a demand anymore for what cb did/does. that's over like we've said 67898767 times. facebook, twitter, tumblr, the things that are popular, don't need services like cb.

cb would have to have a completely different direction/point of view, and in that case, why wouldn't you just make a new site?


giving cb a new look, or any of other superficial upgrades, doesn't change the fact it's providing a service with no demand.


ownership is the least of cb's problems now.
mipadi
I think you best bet would be to get something up and running on a different domain (hell, I'd even lend a hand with writing the web app component of it). Once you have something cool built, see if you could buy the domain createblog.com from him and redirect the traffic to your new site.

cb died because myspace and xanga etc. died. unless you plan on buying and revamping those sites too, you're not going to get anywhere

LJ, as you can see, although createblog.com, as a resource, may not be what it was 3 years ago, the community has always been closely-knit and doesn't take to random veterans returning from 2 year hiatuses trying to take over cB very well.

I understand why you wouldn't want to tell anyone your new "business plan," but if you really get anywhere near purchasing createBlog, I don't think there's anyway you'll get the community to participate and help you unless you spill your new site model. Otherwise, if you want no attachments with the community, like people have said before, might as well just start a new website.

I'd say this is your best shot, and I am sure you will find a few people who would gladly be of help. That or like Juna said spill your guts, because the people who are here now have been on here for quite sometime and want to know what's going to go down.

Okay sorry guys I didn't explain more, I will try again.

I don't want to spill out my plans because if someone else
were to see them, they might steal my ideas and buy Createblog from Jusun.
(It happened before).

On the font page CB say's this:

"CreateBlog.com is a resource website run by webmasters, web designers, and web developers. We are a community effort made possible by people like you who contribute"

Lets build around that and create a whole new home & community for Webmasters, Web Designers, and Web devolopers and also Social Media. Because
Social Media is getting even bigger on the web, it's a good idea to take advantage of that. We would still have a place for Myspace, (You know they've launce Myspace 3.0 already?) and the others we've had (Maybe not all of them) and throw in something new.

If that doesn't explain much then ill try again. I want everybody to not be afraid of what would happen to CB if I bought it.

Also I got the information about how long it'll last by Whois. Createblog was updated on 2008 and it'll expire in 2014.


You guys really think creating a whole new website is better then buying CB? I would do that with over half a million I was gonna buy CB with. ( CB will be a very expensive to buy ) We can start talking soon if thats the case.


@ArjunaCapulong I know, I seem like some stranger but I promise ill be a good admin. I also been on CB since 2005 and left in late 2007 due to finding the love of my life. So I only missed 4 years?


Anymore questions please ask.

Nothing personal, but the last person who said they'd be a good admin deleted the entire website, and Jusun had to come back and restore everything. Which is why admins have virtually no power now.

Four years is a lot.

How old are you?

that will solve everything lets do it guys

lj as in long?

schizo
I think it would be silly to have someone "new" take over the site. If you didn't know about the Suzzette thing, you probably don't know a lot of other stuff you should probably know about the site. Even people who have only been here for a couple months probably understand what this site needs more.

But the idea of this site being taken over at all is silly, so why even think further? I have a hard time believing that someone serious about shelling out half a million dollars to purchase this site would post a topic about it...or that a nineteen-year-old would even have $500k in the first place. Are you Oprah's secret son or something? You can tell us. We won't blow your cover.
goneagain
Schizo, you was a tough mod if you was the Schzio I remembered. I wasn't planning on spending that much on CB but CB is worth that much, I would like to spend that on buying CB and buying the new features I had in mind.


I pull in about 25 clients a week for web design. $25 per hour and some even more. I also charge $50 when clients that want mobile apps or advance programming. (A lot of clients do!) So I make a pretty good living off the web biggrin.gif

So half a million is A LOT still, not saying its not. But with all of the new services thats been coming out, and the new Mybb 1.3 forum ill dedicate a lot of money on it.

If a total new website is what we should have, then let's do it. But I know the members that love CB probably wouldn't even go. So why not give it a chance to help clean CB up?

Has anybody found a way to contact him?

You're going to need to go to jusun with an offer that he can't refuse. He probably makes more revenue from the site than you'd offer to buy it for. So, why would he sell if he's making money off the site?

1. I don't know Jusun as well as most of the members here but I do know that he isn't willing to give his site to some stranger whether they have "big plans" or not.
2. Whats wrong with what we have now? Sure the popularity in Xanga and Myspace have gone down but there's always been talk about adding tumblr layouts and other stuff. I don't see why we would have to make it all new again.
3. We're not afraid of you buying it. We all just think its pointless if you do.
4. I don't think anyone really knows you or remembers you from before. Missing 4 years on createblog is a lot with all the drama that tends to happen here.

Stick to your day job.

I guess I don't understand why you want to buy createblog. I mean you join and then leave and then comeback automatically saying how you want to buy createblog. I mean I don't get it. What are you looking for that you think buying cB would give you?

^what a bitch
goneagain
I didn't had a choice to leave, I was inlove (And thanks to that I have a fiancée and a 17 month old son . So it's not like I left on purpose.

And I didn't say I wanna buy it because I have 'Big Plans'. I wanna buy it because I don't want to see it die. I do have ideas though. ... and its not adding tumblr themes.... Why would we do that when Tumblr has it's own Tumblr Garden?


I already know no one remembers me.

lol here we go
AbbeyMarie
oh for f*ck sake, Steven. lmao

I really don't think Jusun is going to give it up, this site practically prints money while he doesn't do shit. And if you were to make another site that caters to beginning graphic designers ect. you will eventually gain a good community, and it isn't too unlikely that the younger members/people who participate in the design aspect of CB won't come over.

idk the odds just seem to be against you, bro.
goneagain
f*ck it, close the thread. I changed my mind. Calling me that shit was to much. I see why CB has died. Good Bye.
iRapediCarly
rofl, trolled hard, if you changed your mind that fast, i doubt you really gave a shit about this place, but as if anyone does
