9rules Welcomes Its New Overlords

Written by Scrivs on August 26, 2009

It has been a while since I have come on here to talk to you good people and that in itself is a problem. You may have talked to Tyme, Mike and myself plenty on a one-to-one basis somewhere else, but on the 9rules blog it has been quiet. Over the past couple of months the Triad has been considering what to do with 9rules. If you have followed us over the years you know that we have no problems making big changes to our site and community with the chance of making it better. However, we came to the point where the ideas stopped flowing and we were stuck.

This wasn’t due to a lack of passion for 9rules. 9rules helped to get Mike and me off the ground and has introduced you to the wonderful Tyme. We care about 9rules and this is why it bothered us so much as to what we could do with it to push it forward. Every decision we have ever made about the future of 9rules has put our members front and center. We want to give them the best opportunity to have their content exposed to the world because that is what they deserve and why they joined in the first place.

Because of this we have decided to reach out to a company that knows a thing or two about blogs and could bring in a fresh new team of talent to take 9rules even further. Enter Splashpress Media. Why Splashpress? Because not only do they have the people that have a passion for publishing online content, but they also have the resources to make things happen without being too large as to forget the core of what makes 9rules special, the community. Much of the Splashpress team have been fans of 9rules for years so this will only make the transition easier as they understand the purpose of 9rules and why it is important to continue to push quality content to the forefront of the web.

I’ll let the Splashpress team come on here and let everyone know what the future holds for 9rules so continue to check back here or subscribe to the feed. As for what is happening with the Triad you can be sure to follow each of us on our Twitter accounts (Mike, Scrivs and Tyme). I will be sticking around 9rules for the next couple of months to ensure a smooth transition and to show a new group of people of how annoying I can be.

Mike, Tyme and myself would like to thank all of the wonderful people we have met over the years for supporting 9rules and we hope that you continue to show your support as it moves forward to bigger and better things. If you wish, don’t hesitate to send us bottles of liquor, but please send them to me so I can approve of them before I send them out to Mike and Tyme. This is their request, not mine I can assure you.
