Ladies and Gentlemen of the Cartographers' Guild!

I am pleased to inform you all that due to the popularity and relevancy of this site, we have been bought out! Last week, I began discussions with an "unnamed but interested" party to place a value on the website. I assure you I valued this community extremely high, and then the "unnamed but interested party" made me an offer that I could not refuse!

I have been told that I should not release the name of the buyer, because for marketing reasons I believe they intend to turn this website into one of their products. They have their own marketing strategy set aside for this purpose, and I'd hate to ruin it.

But sometime today, the board may go down for a database export and transition to the new owners. In the meantime, I'm going to go buy a new car!
