Funny that you should say that about the money. That makes one owner not really caring about the money, another passing up on his personal share and the founder of the site is happy to get some reward out of his work, but didn't feel the urge to force a sale, according to his own statements.
All of you claim to be very much interested in the wellbeing of the community - but in the same turn, you put it up for a public auction, rather than sticking to the whole "passing the site on to Warlock" thing. Heck, he's more than willing to pay, and has the support of most of our regulars.
Instead of taking the next logical step in the chain, both Warlock and the users got steamrolled by the sale announcement, and pretty much forced into a corner. A circus followed, spearheaded by one of the owners, and people got mad about all of it.
Now, the thing could have been easily solved by discussing things through with Warlock - not just telling him he'd get the site, and then blindsiding him. Sure, Trev may say that he informed Warlock on G+, but it would have been easy for him to realize that Warlock's G+ account is dead, and thus it would be unlikely for him to receive anything there. Funnily enough, only these parts of the matter seem to have been handled via G+, while the easy route via Skype was avoided. Funny.
I think the past weeks have clearly shown that Warlock is more than motivated to pick up the ashes and carry on from here on out, and is mobilizing money to pay for the site. The regulars have also proven to be willing to share the financial burden in times of need, and the fine amount of on-site donations also shows that the community is pretty much able to keep itself alive.
Now, how easy would it have been for you lot to talk things out with Warlock, and get this shit done easy and without pissing most people off? Yet you chose not to do this. Or rather, Trev did not. Instead he moved from A to B to A to B, whereas A is disregarding Warlock's role as "Community Manager" and B is "I can't tell you anything, really, unless Warlock and others agree". A bullshit circus, nothing else.
I guess that's what happens when 3 odd people start a company together and don't really have a clear, united front in things like these. One doesn't care either way, another wants to get rid of it and on one hand acts like a total dickbag, on the other cries about people "misunderstanding" him, and the third is fine either way and just wants to feel a bit rewarded for his work.
Don't get me wrong, I am completely fine with the sale in concept. I see why Gargron would love to be compensated for years of shitflinging and myriads of hours invested on maintaining the site. I also see why you'd want to get rid of the responsibility and liability (considering you all left "admin" to Warlock to get rid of the responsibility in the first place, that is only logical).
What I don't see is why you had to make such a huge game out of it. Whether by accident or intent, this whole situation was horribly handled from start to finish, and could have been avoided entirely by communicating with the current Community Manager, rather than doubting his ability to keep the site going because he lacks rich parents to back his shit up.
At this point it should be clear that Warlock has good intentions for CL, and has the backup of most of the community.
This could have turned out much more successful by listening, communicating and holding on for a moment instead of rushing into one shitstorm after the last. I hope you lot realize that.
