Hello, I have excellent news!!!! :good:

-------------------

03/31/09, Stratham, NH

Carol Yang, Vice President of Marketing has announced the acquisition of http://boot-land.net has part of expansion strategy intended to create stronger ties between Timberland boot products and the online community.

The new site is expected to debut during the third quarter of this year, details about the acquisition costs were not disclosed at this moment.

About TimberLand®

Our mission is to equip people to make a difference in their world. We do this by creating outstanding products and by trying to make a difference in the communities where we live and work while doing it.

We're a big company made up of a lot of small parts and incredibly talented people. We make boots, shoes, clothes and gear that are comfortable enough to wear all day and rugged enough for all year. We don’t rest on our accomplishments. If we did, we’d only have ever made one waterproof leather boot.

Our place in this world is bigger than the things we put in it. So we volunteer in our communities. Making new products goes hand in hand with making things better. That means reducing our carbon footprint and being as environmentally responsible as we can.


I'm really happy about this agreement, it's not the end of boot-land as we even have a few months to choose a new domain name and move everything.

Suggestions for the new domain name are welcome! ^_^

Hello

Thanks for the heads up :good:

Timberland is a well known co. is environmental friendly and makes very good boots, so I guess that may go hand in hand with boot disks. ^_^

BUT moving again, I just found the rules section! ^_^

Does this mean you are moving to USA Nuno?

I am not sure if you would have to change name,, boot land ,,, timberland,

How about
boot land 2 boot – you could give away a pair of boots for best idea,

size 10 1/2 ^_^

Not so soon, first I'll be moving to mainland europe within the next months to the city where my family lives.

Also, if I ever moved to the U.S then I'd seriously need to consider finding a proper english name for myself.

Otherwise I'd quickly get bored correcting people who don't pronounce "nuno" correctly and/or mistake my name with "numo", "bruno", "mumo", "nino", etc, etc.. ^_^ :good:

---------------------------

In either case with regard to Timberland and us, we're still working out the final details of this agreement. If we're lucky they'll offer some free boots for some of the most active members in our community!

I'll talk with them about the native-TimberOne, this sounds like a good idea.

^_^

April FOOL's!




Just incase this is not the above. I've bought Timberland boots before and I can give credit to what they say about buying quality built boots. One pair lasted me a long good while.

So the new project is going to be Timberboot by Winbulder.


Better to start a new thread for name suggestions.

Yes, I confirm that this is NOT true!

There is no acquisition of http://boot-land.net by TimberLand, thought it would be an interesting mix.. ^_^

Hope you all had lots of fun yesterday!
