I wouldn't have a clue how much it's worth, I think would make a big loss to be honest.

In the UK, you can set up a company formation for as little as 2.00. That gets you a Private Ltd company and a Barclay's business account free of charge for a year.

You then set shares so 100 1.00 shares, if you and a partner want a 50% 50% split, then you both have 50shares each.

Your not making much sense to be honest - what brings you to the conclusion it would be making a big loss? To make a large loss you have to have large outgoings - what are the major outgoings of running a forum?

That of course doesn't mean its making much money, but you'd expect that as the site is hardly monetised with to adsense banners that only appear on one of the skins and people generally running the wide TF skin have the left column hidden.

Any half-wit can see that this could be significantly increased. You can do a fair bit with well over 1 million page impressions and 100,000 sessions a month to a very targetted audience.

The details of UK LTD company formation here - http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/inf...stration.shtml

Its not much but I don't know where you got the 2 from.

Could have been a typo of 20.


The standard registration fee is 20.

Depending on Zee's asking price, i have already expressed interest in putting up most (if not all) of the cash for an offer. Chris Rowe (cpr) would be on board with me too, but i'd definitely be interested to hear from anyone who wants to invest a smaller amount.

I'm willing to consider investments of anything above $1k, but it largely depends on Big Zees asking price.

Nope it was defo for 2.00 theres a company formation website that allows formation of a limited company in 3 hours, it costs 27.00 if you opt for having a barclays business account which is free for a year they credit your bank account with 25.00 therefore allowing you to form a company for 2.00.

Coming back to your point Zee, I havent got a clue what the stats are of the website, but it doesn't seem as active as when robson was running the show.
