High-Def Digest Acquired by Internet Brands
We’ve shared many milestones over the last two years since this site launched in April 2006, and I’m thrilled to announce the next step in our evolution -- the acquisition of High-Def Digest by Internet Brands, Inc.
If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Internet Brands owns and operates vBulletin (the software that powers these forums) as well as several dozen other consumer and enthusiast websites, including DVDTalk, HighDefForum.com and AVRev.com.
The plan is to maintain High-Def Digest as a stand-alone site, while leveraging Internet Brands’ resources where they can enhance the site. There are no major changes planned at this point other than moving to bigger, faster servers (this will happen over the next couple of weeks).
Internet Brands has a great track record for taking on the administrative aspects of a site like ours, and freeing up us creative types to focus on the content and site features, which is what drew us to this project in the first place. I will continue to play an active role in the growth of the site, as will our entire editorial staff.
We’ve set up a dedicated thread in our feedback area for discussion of the acquisition – please feel free to weigh in. I've also included a FAQ from Internet Brands about the acquisition below. We’re excited about the upgrades the acquisition will bring and hope you will be too.
Thank you as always.
