Zuneboards sold for $62 000!

Zune_forum Zuneboards, one of the most popular Zune forums was recently listed on the sitepoint.com, an auction site for everything web related. Zuneboards was rapidly sold for $62k, $2k over the "buy it now" price. According to the Sitepoint listing, the new owner is the sitepoint user"gisingh", but that hasn't been confirmed by Zuneboards.

With monthly revenues of approximately $1500, it means that the site was sold for 41 times the monthly revenues. I'm sure this is well over Lpxxfaintxx expectations with this sale, and seems to be overpriced. Zuneboards founder said he was selling the site to give his parents and himself some financial support.

Zuneboards had an impressive growth over the last year. Many Zune fans moved from Zunescene to Zuneboards because of the more dynamic and positive attitude of its members and moderators.

Congratulation for your achievement Lpxxfaintxx and good luck to the new owner!
