Extreme VB to Close, Domain For Sale

Extreme VB, the grand daddy of Schwarz Network is closing down. It was the first site I put online. The domain is 12 years old, but, the site itself is 15 years old. I just haven’t contributed to the site for many years. Most of the source code available on the site is old and outdated unless of course if you still program in Visual Basic 3 through Visual Basic 6.

The only content in the last few years have been user submitted tutorials and news articles when new .Net components or controls are released. I myself haven’t added any code for over 6 years. As I said the code archive is old and dated.

If someone wants the site database and all the source code I will zip it all up and give it to you. If there are no takers I will just upload it to this site and let anyone that wants it have it. If it does get put up for download I will remove all the user data so if you’re a spammer and reading this don’t expect to get any email address.

There is plenty of content in the articles and some of the source code could still be useful as a learning tool. The site itself gets 3 or 4 new articles that get approved every couple weeks. Traffic to the site is steady although not as many people visit like they did in it’s heyday.

While I am going to give all the content and database away I am selling the domain. The site has a tremendous amount of back links on some of the most reputable programming sites. It is also in the Yahoo directory and at one time was designated as the best programming site in it’s category. It also listed in Dmoz.  Since the domain is old and established it has built up respect in the programming community. It is the oldest still active visual basic programming site. All of the competitors from it’s heyday are either gone or no longer active.

If you are interested in buying the domain or want the content for free drop me an email. As far as price goes for the domain I will have it appraised and sell it for a reasonable price below top value.
