Yes Metro has always had completely original themes since day one. I think any new theme would again have to be done from scratch. Also we've never really had theme by consensus here. It's more it appears out of nowhere and everyone praises the designers.

BTW there is currently 16GB of files on the upload service. Also is the backup of the TV Room included because that's another 2gb of vital data. Also what about the previous themes? There is a significant amount of high quality graphic design work in there.

I mean if I'm honest, £300 is insultingly low for a website that has been running longer than Facebook.
Maybe it is insultingly low. I did ask what Gavin wanted. It may have been running longer than Facebook but it's no longer active as it was, and I can see where improvements can be made.

One can only then question the authenticity of your other assertions and assurances though and thus the true intentions of your imminent purchase.

rip metro.
I appreciate that and can see why you think this but would you lie about your age if there was a risk people thought you were incapable of something, when you are capable?

As said, I'm in it for the long run and want to change only want people want changing. I've seen forum acquisitions go bad.

Out of interest, who directly owns Metropol and TV Forum as they are tied together?

I have a general idea of course but having been a long time reader, I've never seen such information.

I do. David owns TV Forum.

In that case, looking up the directorships of Mr Jaron Brass might help you.

I'm pretty sure f-user owns a stake in TVF.

I thought Gavin owned it?
