Thanks, I appreciate the good wishes! No, I am not a 'casualty' and no, I am not jumping ship. If a decision was made to merge Boards and Journal Media without the CEO's knowledge or against the CEO's advice or wishes, then the situation would be different and in that case would be a valid cau

Today more than 90 % of Boards.ie is owned by Distilled Media Group Ltd. (DMGL) with the remainder owned by some of the original founders. The majority owners of DMGL are also the majority owners of The Journal

Here I am ... That is not the case and in terms of drop in usage, is factually incorrect. Since 2014 the number of page views has remained steady (with some natural variations up and down month on month) and the number of sessions has increased. And in terms of advertising the number of page view

Don't know what to tell you other than the real reason for the change is exactly what we've said in this thread. Boards and Journal Media operated two independent sales teams, combining those teams and selling across the two sites makes sense for both companies. Sure, we could leave things as they

On that specific issue (a recent sponsored post on Boards promoting a lottery website that do not contain a message encouraging responsible gambling) that was a mistake (not a deliberate one), we hold our hands up on it and are grateful to our users for alerting us to it. Our position on gambling i

I would say, as one of those 'higher ups', that if we did have sweeping control over everything and exercised that control then we won't be having this conversation in the first place because we would have deleted all these critical posts and banned all the users who wrote them. We haven't and we di

I would point out that: Anyone could do that now (it wouldn't be hard to identify some respected Boardsies with a cursory search through the site) even without the integration with Journal Media As it hasn't happened to date I don't think there is any reason (and there's absolutely no indication o

Technically what is happening is a merger by acquisition. This is a new merger process introduced in the Companies Act 2014. So yes, it is a merger and yes the assets and liabilities will be acquired by Journal Media Ltd. All of this is covered in the Act. I think the confusion is that this type of

I know where you're coming from but the majority of our revenue doesn't come from advertisers directly but from media buying agencies. Advertisers go to these agencies with campaigns they want to run and the agencies then work out how to divide up the budget allocated to that campaign. So we deal a

I'd just to reinforce that point, as I've said Boards content is entirely driven by our users, that is the essence of the site and I think Beasty is quite right is saying that users wouldn't put up with anyone (us here in the office,The Journal or anyone else) trying to dictate or drive the content

I hear you but I think there is one fundamental difference between Boards and The Journal and the examples you give above, and it's this .. Other media companies create and publish their own content which is subject to editorial oversight. Media owners may have the potential to influence editorial

People can categorise this whatever way they want, that's absolutely their prerogative and I won't argue the toss with them. But I will say that not doing something like puts at significant risk the future viability of the site. Its costs money to keep the lights on and the site up and running, tha

No, at the moment, there are no plans. As per the announcement, both sites stay as is and any integration will be focused on the sales and allowing Boards to able to compete in a changing and much more competitive market, something, as I said, we will need to do to if we are to remain a sustainable
