Hello everyone! We have been really busy the past few days and did not have enough time to introduce ourselves. Few days ago, AAKP LLC has managed to acquire RDForum.org and we have been administrating the forums ourselves since Thursday August 22nd, 2019. We're exciting to be part of leading this community into a new era and we have a lot of plans that we believe will make RDF a better place. But before we get there, I would like to first introduce you to our staff.

@RaggedEdge - He's our current Member in Charge of AAKP LLC and is the financial and business mastermind behind our operation. This wouldn't have been possible without him so I would like to thank him for his contributions.
@Andrew21 - Returning from the previous administration as the head of the Department of Moderation is Andrew21. I believe I don't need to say much more as his reptuation speaks for itself.
@KASHER1979 - Also returning from the previous administration as the head of the Department of Security is Kasher1979! His experience running the security for RDF makes him one of the most important administrators of RDforum.
@PY004 - Just managing the technical side of RDForum. Was a moderator on RDF previously. Nothing interesting about him, move on, and don't PM him unless it's technical stuff.

Now that I have introduced you to our administrators, I would also like to introduce you to our moderation and security team.

@dudeinnz - the craziest moderator you will ever find. He has volunteered to moderate @tempnexus. He was a former moderator on RDF and has reprised his role under the new administration.
@ThreePedals6.2 - moderator, also former moderator at RDF in the old administration.
@DChiJEllis - moderator, also former moderator at RDF in the old administration.
@thebravo - security, also former security at RDF in the old administration.
@Blong2506 - security, also former security at RDF in the old administration.

I skipped descriptions for all of you except dudeinnz because dudeinnz has the toughest job of moderating tempnexus and I just had to mention it here to get a couple laughs. Don't take it personally, I just have too much to do and not enough time to spare so I could write Bios for all of you.


Now that I got our staff out of the way, I would also like to thank the following people for making the acquisition possible.

@RaggedEdge - For being our primary financial sponsor that made this possible. He is a true enthusiast.
@BestRadarDetectors - for thinking what's best for the community and acting as the mediator with @xydrine
@Vortex - for trying to keep the two communities together
@Jon at Radenso and @Randy at Radenso for being my moral, ethical, and even emotional support during the past few days. These guys may be a manufacturer, but they're able to completely put that aside for me and I really appreciate it.
@SquirrelMaster @angrypenguin @STS-134 @sdrawkcaB @OBeerWANKenobi @InsipidMonkey @meismyname @Heywood @TeamQuack @tempnexus for listening to everything I said and dispensing advice. Some of you have also provided a lot of technical help and I am very grateful for that.
Everyone else I missed. Especially those who joined us on our exodus to RDT! There's been so many of you I can't list all your names on here!

Now that whole thing is out of the way, please stay tuned for further announcements in the future! For those who are aware, we will have a claims process announced in the next few days so stay tuned for that. We will also be focusing on getting our new rules up so make sure you read that when it comes out. And of course until then, please behave. Just because there's no rules posted doesn't mean there are no rules. We will enforce arbitrary rules if you force us to. Also no Politics, NSFW, for now.

Thank you guys so much again for all the support and I hope to have a lot more announcements for you in the future.

PY004 on behalf of AAKP LLC, the new owners of RDForum.org and the company behind RDTalk.org

I would also like to thank a few more people for making this transition so effortless.

@xydrine - You may have a lot of controversies at the moment, but I really appreciate everything you have done to help us assume your role and run RDF. I also appreciate what you have done for this community and helping it to reach where it is now. I wish you luck in your future endeavors.

Oh by few more I guess I meant one person.

Within the next few days, those of you who have suffered monetary damage due to what happened previously will be given a way to claim compensation. This will allow all of us to move on. I beg those who have a mouthful to say to XYD to please refrain from doing so as we are all trying to recover here.

Thank you.

Welcome to your new roles.
Thank you for your commitment to this enthusiast forum.
Thank you for all the trials, grief and stress you will experience in the future but carry on.
Thank you to all the previous owners and staff who developed such a great forum.
Once I settle back in at home after holidays I will be looking at how best I can repay all this hard work that has been to my benefit. (paid membership!)
Thanks to Vortex, the Radenso group and all the other 3rd party contributors who continue to add value to the industry.
Best Regards,

Thank you PY004 and the rest of the team for working your asses off to do what you have done, both on RDT and now RDF.

I think you forgot to mention the new moderator of the V1 section, tempnexus....
-- Double Post Merged: --
I would also like to add @TeamQuack to your list as he was with us in the call helping out

Ummm. Yeah I made an announcement the first day we came on. Lol.

Maybe it wasn’t proper though. :laugh:

I’m sure it wasn’t.

The king is dead, long live the king!

Congratulations guys, you all had me worried a bit since I have seen communities disappear from similar issues.

I am glad we were able to stay here instead of a time consuming and possibly damaging transfer.
