Thumbs up ANNOUNCEMENT: acquired by VerticalScope

Hey TSF Friends,

Today is an exciting day!

When I started T-Shirt Forums over 8 years ago, my goal was to create a friendly community where people could learn about the t-shirt industry and share their experience. After talking to 100’s of members, lurkers, newbies and industry veterans at the various trade shows, I definitely think that goal has been accomplished.

One question I get asked a lot is “What’s next for T-Shirt Forums?”

Effective today, I have transferred ownership of T-Shirt Forums to VerticalScope.

You have questions? I have answers


In 2005, when I started T-Shirt Forums, I don’t think anyone (including me) could have imagined how large of a site it would become. While I have loved every second of running this site; wearing the many hats (t-shirts?) of “site admin, webmaster, moderator, tech support, advertising manager, peacemaker, spam fighter, etc” often times leaves little time for much else.

I’ve always been a big proponent of focusing on your strengths and letting others help you with the things they are strong in. With this transition, I can refocus on my strengths (answering questions, helping others, connecting members, organizing meetups) and let VerticalScope focus on administering the site, handling the servers, day to day operation, and working with advertisers.

What does this mean for T-Shirt Forums?

The T-Shirt Forums you visited yesterday will be the same (if not better) T-Shirt Forums you visit 3 months from now VerticalScope has the manpower and experience in running online communities to keep the site loading fast and the ability to make the forums an even better place for the industry.

Trust me that I did not make this decision lightly. If I thought the spirit and community of T-Shirt Forums would be fundamentally changed, I would not have made this transition. T-Shirt Forums will continue to be an independent place to get help on any topic within the industry.

What will you (Rodney) do?

I’ll do the same thing tomorrow that I did yesterday and last year (but hopefully more of it). I’ll continue to answer questions in the forums and help out as much as I can. I’ll get to read even more of the daily discussions so I can soak up as much information as possible. I’ll still be at the various trade shows. I’ll also continue to help out as an admin on this site as needed along with the new admin(s).

Please join me in welcoming the new Administrator, Dwayn @Admin4Tee's to the T-Shirt Forums team!

I truly think that this site and community has changed the industry for the better and will continue to do so for years to come.

Hopefully I’ll see a few of you guys at ISS Ft Worth on September 26-28th

More questions?

If you have more questions/feedback, I’ve opened up a thread in the TF Lounge here.
