Just piggybacking on ellieoop's endorsement, Goldtoken is an excellent site with a committed owner and an active programmer who consistently add new games and update the site's features. The memberships are reasonable and they frequently give out short term free membership trials as well as free upgrades to a higher membership level. Yes, they are overly involved with the discussion boards and I have had my own battles with them over it, but that should not dissuade anyone from playing games there. They have so many variants of so many games, I don't know of another site that offers that much variety. They finally added Connect Six which is great and if they ever implement Frog Finder, I'll never need to go anywhere else again. If anyone needs help over there, you can message me as well. I'm JerNYC on there, too.

6 out of the 10 recent paid memberships happened after Fencer made his announcement. One out of those 6 was for a month. However if the site goes dark after Jan 1, 2018 there is not much lost. It will be harder for those who purchase a year long membership to renew as the year goes on as they may not get their full value for the money spent. If someone were want to buy this site, one would want to know they have a solid paid membership base to start with. If less people renew into the new year, it will look less attractive to a prospective investor.

Subject: Re:
Brian1971: Fencer probably knew memberships would drop after his announcement. I'm paying by the month because I'm busy in warm weather. I hope Brainking goes on, but like Fencer said, life does.

Brian1971 
One must decide this year whether to renew or not because as Fencer said this could be the last year and nothing is guaranteed beyond 2017. I am not sure if that is a positive statement for the site's financial future. I came here from IYT like many others. I recently looked back at IYT and decided I didn't want to play there again. I was analyzing Goldtoken as I have never played there. They seem to have some different games that are not available here and would be interested in playing there. I was checking out the cost of their membership levels and not sure if it is a good deal or not. I guess I would have to examine my needs and how much time I want to devote to playing there. I have scaled back so much in pursuit of other interests but still love playing games as I grew doing so. Though I have misgivings about Brainking now and moving forward, I still would like it to continue stay running if for nothing else to have a few games to play here. I would never sink my money into it again as I feel there is no commitment from the ownership to advance the site. I kept renewing in the past because I felt I was contributing to the advancement of brainking. If new ownership takes over, I will see what level of commitment they make and decide if I can afford or wish to support their efforts with a paid membership.

ellieoop: Yes she might be very kind hearted. But she needs to move with the times that children use bad language so to not use words in the word games that she considers is bad language is so silly. For example Sod. 1. Sod is earth with grass and roots in it. 2. a piece of turf. 3. a man thought to be foolish and/or annoying.
Most children today are far more street wise than I ever was as a child.

Goldtoken is very easy and if you go to the top right where it says tournaments, click that and you'll see all the site tourns.. my name is the same there. if you need help, I'll try.

crosseyed:Goldtoken is more difficult to navigate,  but you can join tournaments, you just got to play around a bit to figure it out.
Brainking is far superior to Goldtoken or IYT, so I do hope Brainking can find a way to stay alive.

The 'holy than thou' Badger wears thin sometimes and I cannot work out how to do several things in Goldtoken. Having said that she does her best in trying to improves some things about the site.
IYT is very dated.
This merger talk is rubbish.

Carnie: I agree, but let's say no investor will be found, that makes Fencer a great offer. what if he decides as announced to shut down the site instead? in such worst case situation i would prefer IYT or Gold Token to take over. BUT i clearly prefer the solution of brainking staying alive under a new ownership.... brainking is cool! me I started at Gold Token and IYT, after I met this site I stopped there. let's hope Fencer gonna be fine with some offers

Could be some neat team tournaments with a merger or two... add some much needed new excitement and create rivalries.

I used to be on a chess team with Fencer at Gold Token. Then he said he was leaving to start Brain King. I got my first membership for BK from who is now one of the owners of GT. I still play chess there and here. Would there be any possibility of contacting Gold Token about a possible merger ? Just a thought. I fully understand where Fencer is coming from.

I totally suport Ian's words (our precious monkey had always been a wise man).
We can't make a "moral apreciation" of your words, Fencer. You obviously have total legitimacy to do that. There are no moral or law questions against you to be used.
And that's exactly how life is. You certainly ate not doing this as a revenge or for some other bad reasons. You simply are no more interested in keeping it and you don't have to explain that.
As madmonkey, I will be very sad with the end pf brainking. It was many time, many years, many friends, many genious moves, many terrible mistakes... You have a great site here, and it had been great beeing part of it. If this happens, I must thank you for the great time I had. If the site keeps going with its "mission", its even better! :)
Cheers,
Gabriel
