Dear Fencer, assuming you find someone willing to take over the site and to pay a fair prize, what kind of advises would you give him/her?

for what kind of reasons would you reject an offer for taking over, I can imagine not only the prize matters??

did you already consider in the past to get an employee to do the work on and if so, what came out?

rethinking the time when you developped and the time of maintanance: are there things you would do differently today and why?

do you spend a lot of time online during your free time?

do you have an emotional connection to, was it somehow your "baby" ?

on a chat some users suggested itsyourturn or goldtoken could take over the site, if no one makes a fair offer to you... do you think they were able to programm a surface/interface in order to preserve todays brainking-features? cause their sites look different and might use different rankings etc.? what do you think about this phantasy?

did you already get some serious offers for and if so, why didn't they suit or does one?

do you think it was worthy for you to build up brainking and keep it running for so long? do you regrette something related to that?

now a question which I don't mean so seriousely: knowing that without i gonna loose my favorite cloning backgammon game, how BAD do you feel about that? think about, this might be a reason to keep brainking online, if you don't find any buyer ...

What aspects of the brainking site are you particularly proud of? and which ones were the hardest to implment?

Which particular games were the hardest to implement? and were there any which you thought to implement but didn't because of the difficulty?

When you first started out with Brainking, how long did you think it would last?

What are your ambitions after Brainking?

if a group of brainking player would decide to try to set up a crowdfunding to take over brainking as a community of interest,let's say as a non-profit project, to be able to invest all income to a programmer etc. - my question to you is: for how much money would they need to set up a crowdfunding, if bound to a non-profit concept? I guess the price would then maybe be smaller, would you consider then to go down with the price?
