<NeppyMan> Thanks for taking a few minutes to talk to me about this. I know there's been a lot of confusion about the *chan merger.

<Mootles> Happy to. So what do you want to know?

<NeppyMan> Well, first of all, there's a lot of speculation that this is some big prank, or faked, or somehow not true.

<Mootles> No, this is no joke. I took what ad revenue I could scrape together and purchased the rights to 7chan from p4ch3c0. It used up most of my money, which is why we're going have to be strict about the no ad-blocking software.

<NeppyMan> I can understand that. So you're working on merging the websites, then?

<Mootles> Absolutely. We're using the Web 2.0 design that I put up on 4chan's main page as a base, and going from there. I've contracted with a few AJAX designers to help make the new site extra-interactive. We'll be eventually removing frames and page submissions altogether, and have it all replaced by Javascript calls.
