We bought it back in 2015. I had different ideas about how I wanted it to look and function, and thankfully I had help right from the start or it would not have come to fruition. Were you a member of the old forum?
I definitely want to add my own "good luck" here! As someone who also took over an old forum and spent a couple years working on it, I know how difficult it can be. Wishing you all the best and success!
