Joe here, with a brief update on recent events.
Two weeks ago, following events outside its control, the Blipfoto Board of Directors took the incredibly difficult decision to put the company into liquidation.
Following that decision, I and everyone else at Blipcentral have had to take a step back and let the experts we appointed take full control of the company. I apologise that our silence during this period has been difficult and unsettling, but it has been entirely necessary and proper.
I'm now in a position to release this statement to the community and provide some assurance that the liquidator — whose details are below — is confident a viable, long-term future for the Blipfoto platform, community and content will be secured in the coming days under new ownership. There is a preferred bidder and final discussions are taking place as I write.
As so many of you have said over the last 48 hours, this is a unique place underpinned by one of the most vibrant and supportive communities on the Internet - there’s really nothing quite like it. Our pictures and words have come to mean so much to us individually, but the way our collective story touches a much wider audience is truly remarkable, and something I’ll always be immensely proud of.
I can’t say any more at this stage, but I am optimistic the lights aren’t about to go out and know many people are working hard behind the scenes to make sure they shine even more brightly in the future.
Further announcements will follow as soon as possible.
