VerticalScope Purchases Home Theater Shack

VerticalScope Purchases Home Theater Shack

In April 2006 when John and I decided to embark on this journey of creating the most respected forum on the Internet, we had no idea it would have succeeded so remarkably well. There is one thing for certain; we could not have made it as far as we have without the absolute finest and most extraordinary members and staff any forum could ever ask for. While it is unfortunate for John and I that we must announce this day that Home Theater Shack, LLC has been sold to VerticalScope, we do not count this as an unfortunate event for the members of Home Theater Shack. Rest assured you will all continue to enjoy the respect and friendliness that is common to HTS. The fine folks at VerticalScope have promised us that they will continue to allow the administrators and moderators of the site to run the forum as it is, so you should notice very little change overall. The no-nonsense attitude, as well as the Zero Tolerance Forum Rules will remain. We know you will continue to support the staff in upholding the moral and ethical standards of the forum. You will still see the same familiar faces around the forum for the most part with the majority of our admin and moderators. John will continue to offer REW for download at HTS, and he will continue to support the REW Forum as a member of the staff. As for me… I will be moving on to other ventures in the industry (more later). That does not mean I am alienating my friends at HTS, or that I will be a stranger, but it does mean that I will be participating less, and I will no longer be on staff here at HTS. John and I thank you all for making this forum what it is today… the BEST forum on the Internet. We thank you all and wish you all the very best.

Please join us in welcoming VerticalScope as the new owner. We hope you will give them your support, as they respect you and this forum, and how you have built it up to be what it is today.

Best Regards,
John and Sonnie

Re: VerticalScope Purchases Home Theater Shack

Greetings!

My name is Phil and I will be taking over the webmaster duties on HTS for Sonnie. There is little about the site that will change, your mods are all still here and the site will still look and feel as it always has. I am open to questions and of course any suggestions you think you want to mention that will make your experience on HTS more enjoyable.

Re: VerticalScope Purchases Home Theater Shack

Sonnie,
While I agree that we have a truly remarkable community of users and moderators, it is impossible to overstate the significance of your vision and presence. Having been around since the early days, I have seen how your passion for excellence, moral and ethical bearing, and the importance you place on how people treat each other have made all of us better people. That is high praise for a discussion forum centered on an entertainment hobby, but it is completely accurate.

I count you as a friend and hope that moving forward the platform that you have left us respects the lessons that you taught us. Most important among them is that we can engage in discourse in a civil manner, even vigorously debate a topic, without doing harm to one another. Count the time you have spent building this community as a success that will always be appreciated.

Be well, my friend, and be in touch.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.
