It's time for me to give up the CEBE. This website is going to vanish four months from now, barring someone taking it over in some way. It's time for me to move on to another stage of my short life and I think we've had a pretty good run here.

If anyone wants to take this site over or start a new one to continue our community then let me know and I'll figure out how to make it work. I consider all of you my friends and I'm proud to have continued the Cardinal Empire boards, which was an amazing place with amazing people. And I'm sorry to anyone I've offended over the years. Harv's lunacy knows no bounds.

Until my next sober post...
what is the cost for keeping the site up?
I'm sure we can find a way to keep the lights on, but you got me a little worried. Everything all right?
Yeah, just tired of reading every post, every day, and forcing participation. Tired of the upkeep really. Sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread. Smile

I'm an odd bird.
The most beautiful things are fleeting.
You're going to stay around and post right?
Take a year off, man, and see if you get the itch. Would hate to lose you. None of this exists if not for you.
I apologize because I just read this. Thank you Mr. Glass, it's been fun. Hopefully someone else will pick up the mantle.
Thanks for everything over the years Harv. Peace brotha, let us know how to take over the maintenance of the site.
Any updates? If there is a financial situation that needs to be addressed I will help.

Me, too. If not, should we look for a new address? Can we reuse the old Cardinal Empire address? This is the only sports board I participate on and I would hate to lose it.
I have been a premium member of 247 and really enjoyed it. However their platform for desktops is the worst of any site I have ever seen, so I gave it up. Have been tempted to try Scout but the basketball forum after the Clemson loss was downright embarrassing. Reminded me of why I went with 247 after the split.
Oh yeah, the point. The point is I really don't want to lose this site.
Noone does, 3 months now.
We're trying to get things worked out. Waiting for some info from harv. He says he won't leave us high and dry. If it starts getting close to the expiration, I'll get everyone's email/phone/whatever and notify you when we get it all up and running. Trying not to lose our history. Either way, we'll definitely keep our core group together.
Great thanks DHC.

Thanks. Much appreciated. If I ever make it to another gathering, I will purchase you and everyone else who is making this happen a beverage.
Ill contribute monies in any way I can

Every little bit helps right??
Well that sucks. Is there a solution in place? It would really be sad if the cardinal empire brand died out. I created a board back in the summer of 2014. cardinalempire.net. Did it because its something I was always interested in trying out and I was bored for two weeks visiting back in Kentucky. Plus I had a free year of hosting. Had the old Swole style cardinal empire look. I never went live with it though. Eventually just took it all down. I think I have templates saved somewhere though. Could try and fire that back up. But I understand if thats a no go. I know Ive probably burned some bridges and theres some big trust issues there.
This question has come up again, but we are almost to the 3 month point.....
Did Harv get back to anyone about how to take over this site? I'd love to keep everything here to maintain the history, but I appreciate the 2nd option Red has setup
I haven't personally reached out to him, but I can.
Doesnt bother me one bit if this place stays up. But like I said in the other thread it would be nice to know before I drop $120 for hosting for CE.
When do you have to know by?

Me Chris and DHC have contacted him. My guess is he's still contemplating whether to hand over the keys or come back and run it
i got a couple months. Hard to imagine it wont be figured out by then.
Yea, especially since this place will go dark way before then if we don't get it resolved.
Sometime in April, probably after the tourny Im sure if he sticks to his time frame. Like J mentioned, Im not so sure he wont come back and keep running it.
Come back from where? Sorry if I missed it but I thought Harv was simply tired of dealing with the dicks in here.
He just kindve vanished. I don't think it was because of a person or people. He contacted me earlier this year about taking over. I'm not sure what's going on with him but I hope he's good. I lost his number.
Putting up with you fucks would make the Pope curse.

So how was din? Hope I didn't put you off.
Review tomorrow! Good stuff.
Just wanted to let everybody know that it appears the cardinalempire.com domain is available for $176. It initially says $877 but you can make an offer. For shits and giggles I made an offer of $100 and it came back with an error saying it was below the minimum threshold of $176. I then said 176 and it looks like its accepting it and will go thru with the transaction. Just something to think about in the future for anyone who might like to get that domain. For instance if someone ends up taking over this place and had everybody pitch in some money to buy that domain and change this site to that. It's actually not that hard to do.:

That link won't work for you all but you can go to the site and try for yourself. Still not cheap, but not insanely overpriced I don't think. CE used to get a decent amount of traffic back in the day. I'm sure that's what driving the cost.
Getting really close to the 3 month mark....

Hey Harv, any chance you could get us the info to keep this thing going?
Harv,
Can we start working out the details of how to take over the site? Any chance you are coming back? You'd have no problem collecting money from us to keep it going.
Is this some kind of social experiment, or is the CEBE back up for good?

Why would you want to hang out some place you keep getting "dicked over", as you put it?

The CEBE is yours. I gave you all my files, I gave you my full confidence, I gave you almost half a year's advance notice of shutdown. It's yours to do what you want. So do something with it or give it to someone who will. Or just let it die, whatever.

Every piece of information you could possibly need is STILL HERE FOR YOUR HELP, dumbass, so use your brilliant mind and run the fucking league. There's lots of Summer work to be done, if you spend some time thinking about it, and also, you know, doing it. It takes more than just renaming it to make it happen.

Dicked over. Jesus Christ.

Humility. Responsibility. Compassion. Good luck.

I think he was asking more about the site itself. Wondering if you are still planning on shutting it down our if we can continue to use this site
