Who knows, websites get sold all the time. I've seen listings on Ebay for £20k plus, those are businesses though. Wasting a grand on a hobby site seems pretty pointless, it obviously doesnt turnover any money or he wouldn't be selling it.

The guy buying it is probably interested in the prestige it brings "I own Dakka!"

I'm halfway through a tasty arguement on that site at the moment. :mrgreen:


According to http://www.cwire.org/website-value-calculator these are the values of the following sites


warseer - $49,895
40kforums - $785
thewarp - $595
dakka - $4,870
astronomican - $676
40konline - $5,223
tau online - $8,223
bolter and chainsword - $1,821
flame on! - $71
librarium - $3,517

heresy-online - $156 :rock:

Games Workshop - $291,997

and to put the others to shame

Ebay - $1,627,761,464

Dakka is up for sale. Wanna do a whip round? :p

I'm betting it goes for $1500

Closest bet gets a custom rank!
$1750

I'm putting my money on 1850 :wink:

Wondering what the person buying it will do with it, used to be a great site and community.

with a site like that, a potential buyer with the right creativity and marketing skills can easily turn it into a money maker. I stand by my first estimate :D

Personally I think the site is to slow to browse efficiently. Loading pages takes so long you get bored and leave pretty quickly.

Not sure how you'd go about making money other than opening an online wargames store.

I work for an E-commerce company. We sell online shopping carts to people. I know online stores fairly well. I bet someone will buy DakkaDakka.com and then build an online storefront attached to it. All they have to do is clean up teh code a little bit, make a few files on there smaller to allow for better browsing, and they will make a mint.

I bet it sells for $5,000.00 +

" astronomican - $676 " Cool, we're actually worth money, which of course can't outway the spiritual benefits :wink:

But back on tpoic, anybody know why DakkaDakka stopped?
