(From today's JA+ "Eye on Adventure") ....
The grand ole gal Gameboomers has received a front page makeover and is looking pretty nifty. A new look, new owners and new attitude all add up to the best adventure forum on the internet (well, next to the most wonderfulest forum in the world of course!)
I don't know if this is the right place to query the above?
Is this true?
What's happened to Bob & Karen?
I hope everything's all right with them (I know Bob had a LOT of very serious back trouble).
Please let us know the situation! blush

{{Later}} Altered subject title. Maybe I missed something some time ago ... although as an old time 'Boomer I visit GB at least twice a day! eek

I don't know either Len but I don't see Bob and Karen's names at the bottom anymore so it may be true. I suppose, life marches on and circumstances change, so it's very possible. If it is true, I'd like to wish them the very best and thank both for starting such a wonderful place to hang out :kiss:

Seconded ... most sincerely! bravo

Also very many thanks for providing us with so much interest, info, and enjoyment for so many years ... free, and AFAIK voluntarily (with no cash benefit for themselves).

Gee, they don't even tell the moderators anything. Think this was a 'misprint' by JustAdventure? I think we would have heard if there where new owners of Gamerboomers!

Syd, Wictchen, anybody have any info??

A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to make Game Boomers what is.

My heartfelt thanks to those who have done this work, to those who are doing it, and to those who will do it.

Feel like you're in a new "game" called "Guess the Owners Now!". Since we were not notified, assuming there ARE new owners, then what happens to all our real names and EMail addresses? With 5,000 + registered I hate to think how valuable that info might be to someone who wants to spam us with new "offers".

There is a link at the bottom of the pages called "Contact Us". Perhaps we should do just that and ask the question directly if it doesn't show up here soon. And how can the Moderators, etc., not know if the ownership has changed? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" />
I didn't do it......and if I did I'm not guilty!

Good morning everyone laugh

As to Randy's article about us - yes, it's true. GameBoomers has been "under new management" so to speak since May of this year. Bob's medical problems have made it impossible for him to continue running the board so he turned it over to [drum roll please] Marita aka Mags laugh

Marita didn't want a big deal made out of it which is why nothing was said formally on the board and we respected her wishes. I will tell you all - that she is a wonder and Peter is correct - there is so much more to running this site than simply hitting the reply button.

BillyBob calm down - your email address and everyone elses is safe - they have not left the building lol Yes, the moderators knew about it when it happened. You're the new kid on the block Louis and I just didn't think to mention it. I apologize for that.

I can only please one person a day. Today isn't your day. Tomorrow's not looking good either.

Marita (MaG) has done an outstanding job. Nothing is really changed here at GB, unless you want to count the Game Store Page, the Free Game Page and the Homepage. GameBoomers is still in the family. wink Marita wanted the transition to be smooth as possible for the members.

Bob had no choice because of his health problems. It was very difficult for him. Bob is still in the background kibitzing wink We all want to thank him for creating such a wonderful board and wish him the very best.

If it wasn't for Marita, there would not be a GameBoomers.

Kudos to you Marita! bravo :kiss: bravo

Hi ya', Gang......Not much I can add here as its all been explained above. Thanks to Marita, and a terrific staff, Gameboomers is surely rolling along with scarcely a visible hiccup during the transition in management. We do certainly wish Bob and Karen the very best!

Off we go into the wild, blue gaming yonder with great prospects for a wonderful and growing Gameboomers future!

Love, Witchen
