Default VADriven is now a part of Internet Brands!

Hello everybody,

I'm excited to announce that VADriven has been acquired by Internet
Brands, Inc.
As most of you know, I started this site over 10 years ago
and with all your help, it has grown to be such an amazing
community. I couldn't be happier with the way we've
been able to evolve and grow VADriven to this point. However, it's
come time for me to start a new chapter in my life and I was lucky to
be able find a group of people in Internet Brands with the experience
and capabilities to take over and continue to grow the community and
legacy of VADriven.

Internet Brands boasts the largest portfolio of automotive community
sites in the world, and I'm proud that they've chosen VADriven as
their first regionally targeted community. VADriven will be joining an
extensive group of sites including Honda-Tech, LS1Tech, ClubLexus and
many more.

In terms of day-to-day operations and staff, we don't expect there to
be much change. In introducing VADriven to IB over the past couple of
weeks, I've made it clear the importance of the unique personality
specific to this community. IB has stressed to me that they want to keep as much
continuity as possible in the way things are run around here. Brian Eng will
also be continuing his role as Administrator. I'll be introducing some
members of the IB staff, but their main goals are to be around to
support the continued efforts that have made this site what it is
today.

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you all for everything
that you've done to help as community members over the
years. I've made great friends among you all and hope that we can
continue those relationships long into the future. If you have any
questions about any of this information in general or just want to
chat, you're more than welcome to contact me privately.

Best,
sung

Yep, with all the "trolling" and "explicit Material" Ban and implementation, it was only time before the "works" were put in order.
