    My name is Helena, I work for VerticalScope.com. VerticalScope recently acquired xdtalk.com and will be taking over the management duties of the forum. Your familiar moderator and admin team will be the same people helping with the day to day forum management. We will primarily manage the technical functions of the site and support the mod team. Maintaining continuity as well as the spirit of the site is important to us. This means that little about the site will change for you the user while we continue to grow the community.


    Over the next few days you will notice my team mates Phil and Kyle who will be helping me with the site announcements as well as members of our support team (they will introduce themselves in the site issues section). While we get to know the landscape of the forum and how things work we will be on hand to answer questions and get to know the unique needs of this community.


    I will be working closely with the Admin/Mod team on ways we can help improve the order of things here and raise the level of your experience on xdtalk.com.


    If you have questions please let me know, I will do my best to answer you all as quickly and thoroughly as I can.

    Interesting. What are the plans to 'grow the community'?

    I think that just means they can't run for president.

    Was it word for word? Like the Admin credentials could of been compromised and this is all a sick joke from the Left?

    We have a developed mobile app, which is the only real change we will add right away. we grow the community by talking and working with the staff, and listening to the community to see what can be done to help make this a better place, or we leave it alone if that is what you all want.

    Looks exactly the same.
