Solidperfume.com For Sale / Closing?

This site has been a data bank, info center, friendship maker, at times a creative writing class filled with SOLID stories, but most important, it brought us all together. I wouldn't know any of you without this place. In a world where people feel disconnected we found common ground here.
Thank you Lisa and Jack.... this site has become more then the sum of it's parts.
Thank you members, you made this site important in our lives.
I know as you grow older, things change but losing our "safe haven" will really be missed.

I'm also in agreement with her on this one !
You guys must do what's right for you.
But a word from my other self first:
But we love this site and don't want it to go ! Please, please, please can we keep it ?

my suggestion is to just change the domain name if Jack can sell it and make some money with it. For us collectors the name of the site doesn't matter at all...what do we care about the name.......as long as site will keep running we could live with any name.
If someone absolutely wants to get this Domain name let's have him buy it....hopefully for a lot of money.
I've no idea if this would help, but I thought to mention this possibility.
Also I would agree with paying a membership fee. I have my own site and know that the space on the server cost quite some money.
Thanks to Lisa for having had the idea of launching this site and especially to Jack for having created and maintained it.
Hope we will be able to communicate on this site for a long time to go.
Take care, Brigitte

Now on to something fun...a new domain name now the possibilities are endless! How about "zooey.com"? What do ya think Michele? Anyone else? Take care.

When I first read this I had such a sinking feeling - I felt as though I was being evicted from my home. Because home is what the site had become to me.
However, it has long been a concern to me that this might happen. I have marveled at the wonderful generousity of Lisa and Jack in maintaining this site for us even though it was no longer of much interest to them. I do hope they are able to realize some monetary rewards for it. And I sincerely hope that perhaps something will be worked out where the site could be maintained under a new name as Brigitte suggests and the existing name be sold. No question that most of us would be willing to pay fees to continue to share information and other chit chat. Guess we all recognize the problem -- who has the time and expertise to accomplish this. Anyway, the very best to Lisa and Jack for what they have done for us and for their future plans.

(Though I only had to read it once to understand it, Zooey! )
I feel the same way, Phyllis - having most people logging back in for this dilemma keeps me coming back to read other people's thoughts - just like a dinner table discussion with everyone! So yes - this does seem to be our 'home'.
Michele - you are starting to sprout some deep provocative thoughts lately. Is the philosopher in you coming out?
