Bad News Guys

Guys, just got a message from Paul and Darius. Some good news. First off, Sharenator, since it's creation way back in 2007, has been rapidly growing and growing. More and more members are joining, and site traffic is rapidly growing. This proves that Paul and Darius were successful in doing what they've wanted to do: make a website and watch it grow successfully.

However, the bad news is that Paul and Darius spoke to me last night. Sharenator has been seen by many as the spiritual successor, or a site that rivals and maybe even surpases Digg, in terms of layout and content. As you may or may not know, the owners of Digg, after dealing with problems of its own, has tried to sell the website. It was revealed however, that Paul and Darius were approached by a representative of Digg about selling the Sharenator domain and trademark, in order to make it part of Digg, in hopes of "sweetening the pot" for a potential sale, much like the sale that almost went through to google that fell through in early 2009.

Paul and Darius informed me that they have accepted for an undisclosed amount (that's their business, since its their website), and they informed me that in 2 weeks, Sharenator will be closed for good.

I just have to say its been an honour being with you guys, and I'm going to miss it. Hopefully whatever happens to this site, Sharenator will hopefully live on in one way or another.

    I thought it was real. Being at school, the link was blocked, so I couldn't read that it was fake.

    besides, Digg looks like more of an News website anyways. No way it could ever replace sharenator

    Sharenators user base would decline to like 0 if it ever did happen, nobody likes Dig.... They can't even spell dig properly

    The scent of troll becomes ever so fragrant on the first day of the fourth month. It becomes oh, so obvious when negative type post such as this come up and you see an elaborate, well thought out plot to something's demise.

    You may have fooled others, but you can't fool me. ;)
