Mods please leave this on the LA board since it is the most high profile board and pertains specifically to the LA board.
There is some discussion in the Site Talk about how merging FTC and HO would make for a more comprehensive and more interesting board.
I for one agree.
Robert does not want to merge because he wants to keep it for profit in the hopes of eventually making this a profitable site.
Ipse doesn’t think the LA board/group can weather another move.
I disagree. I think we’re clever enough and resilient enough to make the transition now.
The thinking is that it would be better to make the switch now than later if FTC becomes large enough to make it the target of a buyout.
And if it never becomes large enough to be the target of a buyout, then it would probably just eventually fizzle out.
Hence my vote that we should move. Ipse and I had discussed this in private in the past but it was never brought to the group to vote on.
