Post subject:  Anyone interested in taking over WeLoveCMSMS.com?

As you may or may not know. I had been curating a CMSMS showcase site at WeLoveCMSMS.com. However, my health and other obligations won't let me keep up with the site anymore and it would be nice if someone were able to take it over. I'd make arrangements to transfer ownership of the domain welovecmsms.com and the Twitter account. Right now the site is offline, as I recently transferred servers. It also is in need of a major update since it was last seen running CMSMS 1.x.x. I have all the image files and datbase SQL. It will cost nothing but time and a domain renwal fee. Let me know. I derived a great deal of pleasure working on it over the past few years, altho in the last year, i didn't devote the kind of time to it I should have. Contact me at joni[at] jonimueller[dot]com if interested.

ADDED after original posting:

Here is some more information I can provided based on a query I received earlier:

1. IS THE SITE LIVE NOW?
I recently migrated servers and took down some sites that weren't crucial. I have all the files and SQL file intact. I had wanted to upgrade it to CMSMS 2.x.x but haven't gotten around to that.

2. HOW LONG HAS THE SITE BEEN IN EXISTENCE?
It's been since early 2011 as I recall.

3. HOW MANY SHOWCASED SITES ARE THERE CURRENTLY?
There are about 70-80 sites currently featured, some via the submission form and others I culled from the CMSMS Showcase topic on the forum.

4. HOW OLD IS THE DOMAIN?
Actually, I just ran the WHOIS report. The domain was purchased in November 2010, so it took me a few months to get it up and running. It expires in November 2016.

I had some initial help setting up Cataloger from Tetsuo (Lewis Cave), along with Goran Ilic, Fernando Morgado, and Rolf Tjassens. So it was a bit of a group effort getting it up and running the way I envisioned. I am a designer, NOT a coder!

I have some space at Site Ground and I'll try to get it back up and running there. I not only had a contact form there where you can submit a site, but also a business directory where those who work with CMSMS could submit their web design studio contact information. I got a few bites from that.

5. I NOTICE "CMSMS" IN THE DOMAIN NAME. ISN'T THIS VIOLATIVE OF CMSMS TERMS?
I had asked the CMSMS folks about the domain welovecmsms.com when they tapped me on my domain cmsms.me. They had no problem with welovecmsms.com, since it was a curated site not a for-profit site. I can forward that confirming email to any interested parties In all honesty, I think the domain should be passed to someone in a position of authority at CMSMS. I have no problem doing that.

I am also willing to turn over the Twitter account:
https://twitter.com/welovecmsms

and the Facebook Page:
http://www.facebook.com/welovecmsms/

Nearly all major CMSes have showcase sites, and that's where I drew my inspiration for this one:

WORDPRESS:

EXPRESSION ENGINE:
http://show-ee.com/

TEXTPATTERN:

I am happy to announce that Rolf has agreed to take over WeLoveCMSMS.com and the new and improved version just went live! I am so excited that he's gotten it back up and running so quickly and with a slick new design. Go peek! And go, Rolf!!!
