Interview with Joe Ward

Hello Everyone,

I read over the rules and I'm pretty sure it's okay to post this here, if not I apologize and it can be locked or deleted.

We recently did an interview with Joe Ward, former vbseo co-founder and I learned some interested stuff about Joe's new project called Launch.forum and what happen to vbseo in his words.

Check it out, comment here and thanks for looking.

snippet

What happened in the time up until the end of your time at vBSEO?
Whoa, now the questions are getting edgy! =) Here goes. The wheels started coming off the vBSEO machine. I presume Juan was disatisfied with his inability to get full, unopposed buy-in from the founding 3: himself, Ilia, and I. While we were never opposed to exploring new opportunities and ideas, we did see it as a team decision and not a dictatorship.

Interesting read, especially the vBSEO shenanigans both in the interview and further down the thread

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.
W3Schools -
Online vBulletin Manual
If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

Thanks for checking it out Lynne,

I see another detailed reply today, I've been trying to get the other vbseo partners to stop by as well, I don't know if that will happen though.

So a bit of disturbing news about vBSEO was posted on Admin Talk this evening by the co-founder Ilia Muriente.

She included this video in the post along with a written overview of the situation.

That's sad. But you had to figure when family goes in together to form a company that something explosive is going to happen sooner or later. Sibling will bicker and fight. Sometimes it has a good ending and other times, well, not so much.
I don't use the product so I don't go to the forums there. But I do own my own business. If his forcing her out was legit then she don't have much of a leg to stand on. BUT if he didn't cross his T's and dot his I's a sharp corporate attorney can find a way to get back in.

There's two sides of this story and we're not hearing both of them. Hard to make a decision when you're only getting half the story...
