    What is the point of this site? Are you just doing it for fun?

    Seems that the web just keeps getting more and more sites to occupy your time...you've done a nice job. Just wondering is this a business you want to catch on or just for fun?

    THanks

    Sorry it took me so long to reply.

    A business, no.

    Fun, absolutely.

    I have another website thats in construction that will hopefully allow me to market some Halloween products but it's been an aggravating process.

    I had the idea to do HauntSpace because I felt that adding an additional positive entity to the industry was the way to go. I agree, it's another internet presense that's fun to play with.

    There are tons of resources that have positive influence regarding the Halloween Industry, allowing people to come together and share their resources and experiences.

    I'll describe my motivating factors and mission statements.

    HauntSpace is a community that is of course "just for Haunters" which allows us to monitor the group as a whole. That in itself is impossible when it concerns a similar general social network that is comprised of approximately a billion members. Way too much to handle when it concerns member safety. I tend to feel that with a smaller group, we can hopefully safeguard the younger members from the types of people that take advantage of such, or have intentions that are less than appropriate.

    We've already dealt with some spam issues.

    I'm a HUGE fan of positive promotion. I would like to see some people promote their ideas, websites, groups and the things that we like to see when it concerns positive things. Haunted Houses, good websites, groups and such. People that wish to market good quality products and services etc.

    The thing I don't like to see is pornography, hey look at my singles club type of thing. That's quickly dealt with.

    I'm also dedicated to the promise of not cramming HauntSpace with tons of affiliate ads and adsense etc, I'm sure you get the idea. One would say "well how are you going to pay for it".

    I'm a firm believer that if you say something, stick to it, people will follow you. I'd be happy to market and sell some Halloween merchandise, thus generating enough funds to keep the site up and running.

    I can tell you this, I'm a proud dude. There's nothing better than sparking an idea, watching it grow and becoming overwhelmed with the enjoyment of seeing the prop pics, the groups and knowing that something good came of the idea.

    Member feedback has been positive so far and I've tried my best to give everyone what they want.

    I posted some information regarding the future of HauntSpace and made it pretty clear that anything that appeared on HauntSpace had to be beneficial to the industry.

    Let's face it, no one wants to visit a site such as that, and see things that clutter up the screen, destroy their website creations and interfere with the things they are trying to project.

    If we eventually banner the site, it will probably be "one" rotating banner that is Haunt Industry promotional.

    The thing that I found to be interesting is that everyone on there has a unique personality and really enjoys the presentation of their hard earned work.

    As for me, I consider myself already blessed. A couple of really good jobs, a great family and decent health, which is the important thing. I don't have a problem spending a few bucks to provide a place for people to have a good time.

    Hopefully, it will continue in a positive direction, because I really do care and hope that I can provide to the members as the needs arise. I like to have the one to one contact with people and adjust things as necessary, to ensure that everyone is happy.

    BTW, I was kind of floored when I read that, I take that as quite a compliment and appreciate it.

    Thank you.

    I'm having a good time and have become attached to the members.

    It's all about good Halloween fun and remain thankful that things worked out thus far.

    I noticed something about Haunters in general. If you go to various websites that deal with absolutely nothing, you get nothing. If you go to or belong to websites that harness profession, you get just that. The Haunt Industry is a profession. There is quality that comes along with that.

    Haunters consist of engineers, computer experts, electronic experts, artists, sound and lighting techs and we could go on and on. I'm happy to have the ability to learn as I go, give a little something in return and hopefully someday get some recognition for doing something right, and doing so from the heart.

    With another site I'm launching, it will hopefully pay for HauntSpace and give me the opportunity to donate to some of my favorite charities.

    Being that I've spent a lot of time in the public service field I've seen a lot of the worst that life has to offer and realize that misfortunate people need to benefit from successful things. I'd really like to spin some banners in a rotation that allow people to kick some finances to some of my favorite charities as well, in addition to providing some proceeds of my online store myself.

    I have to apologize for the lengthy post, but I wanted to provide some information as my time on the net is kind of limited, due to work, the web projects and a bunch of other things etc.

    As you can see, I'm enthusiastic about this stuff and to me, there's a lot more to it than just having a website.

    Hopefully it won't put me in the grave.

    You're welcome.

    It's been rough, but we'll continue to keep it "haunt related" which has been the biggest obstacle.

    I appreciate the support.

    Uh, hate to burst the bubble but the name CAN be construed as attempting to capitalize on Myspace.com. While space isnt necessarily tranemark protected, the idea of -space.com may very well be and seen as trademark infringement. If you used a meaning similar word, I do not think there is so much a case. Hauntspace would land you in trouble while hauntbox of hauntair
    would not.
    The word for the day is NPD. Check it out.

    Hi NT.

    I appreciate your concern, you're an awesome dude.

    Not concerned about it.

    I have absolutely ZERO respect for XXspace. Too much ads, too my spam, too much pedophile behavior.

    HauntSpace has nothing to do with XXSpace and the similarity is coincidental.

    HauntSpace was created to give the Haunters another good place to share their experiences.

    We're in a really tight bind right know, trying to decifer who's in it for the long haul, who's a Haunter and who isn't.

    We've already disciplined numerous members, deleted accounts and have had some accounts self deleted.

    Halloween, Haunted House enthusiasts ONLY.

    It's been a real headache, because lucky for us, we scored some serious Haunters.

    I hate to hurt people's feelings but keeping direction is of most importance.

    I'm 100% supportive of business, Haunt self promotions and the things that remain positive to the industry but just like any other quality Halloween website, the fight is on, to keep it on topic.

    With the name, I beg to differ, it's a space and the word "MY" is no where attached.

    I'm more concerned about the quality of the members I keep than the fear that someone is going to cop a gripe about the name that was chosen.

    XXspace is a multi million dollar website. At no time to I expect HauntSpace to gain that type of status, nor do I care if it does.

    I promised to keep HS a quality Halloween site and with the moderation alone, it will never reach those types of numbers.

    Any halfway decent Haunter on there can tell you that and if we keep our membership at 500, I'll be satisfied. It was a gift to the Haunters and I'm happy with that.

    Now...............HalloweenTrade.com on the other hand, is a business and we'll head that little project in a positive direction too.

    Other than that, the only thing on my mind is what investment I'm going to make in my Pro Haunt, which is my next project.
