So, I really hope our dear lord savior Evilore doesn't get mad at this thread.
I think this is a fun and an insightful thread.
So Neogaf was a bustling forum with insane user numbers. Then Evilore got me2tooed and the userbase dropped a little.
But I hope it will get back to it's glory days. Which it will because now you can register with a normal mail account. That was what was preventing me from registering back in the day.
But, I'm curious how much this forum is profitable. The owner is our overlord, Evilore. I read somewhere that he was offered 5 million bucks to sell the forum and he refused.
He is a public person, if you ask people in the gaming industry of Evilore or Neogaf, most of them heard about him or the forum. I'm curious how much is our overlord worth. How much dough did he make from Neogaf?
So this is a thread about guessing Evilore's net worth. What do you think he's worth? And it would be insanely cool if He came in the thread after some time and told us who was the closest.
If this offends our overlord, I'm okay with you locking or deleting this thread. It's not meant to offend you, it's just a curiosity thread in good faith.

Given the lower traffic, I am guessing not as much as previously, but I would imagine he has done well enough for himself even prior to that that the revenue stream would have accumulated a decent little nest egg, certainly enough to cover a downturn. Not sure it'll ever be as profitable but I doubt he has to go looking for work.

My guess is that GAF has always provided monthly income which back in the glory days probably brought in a small but reasonable income after paying whatever it costs to maintain.. Enough to travel for awhile which I'm sure was awesome financial freedom to explore life on his own terms.

Nowadays I'm sure it's more of a struggle but we are still up and running so I'd like to think the site still is in the green.

There was a time the site was worth million(s) I think but evilore chose not to sell.

Can you give me some data to run some numbers? I've never really thought about this but I bet I could at least get it in the ballpark. How many views does Neogaf get in an average month recently?

He seems to type to be interested in investing (at least experimentally from the crypto thread) so he probably did some sound investments at the peak of the site.

He lost it all in the housing bubble, like everyone else.

No one lost a cent as long as they didn't sell their stocks or have all their money wrapped up in fixer-upping.
