    BREAKING NEWS!!!! Someone claiming to be Jan (I say claiming as IDK for sure) has sent me these PMs which apparently will be the last we hear from him. I asked him why did VB shutdown and his thoughts on VBF as well as if he was in fact Jan. His response:

    I am. I do have my reasons for it. I sold the VidBit source code to someone (not louis or anyone you know of) who was willing to take it further than I ever could've.
    Since I'm not directly affiliated with them I can't tell you if it will keep the name or use its database but I'm guessing we will see it in the future.
    Since this will be the last thing you'll ever hear from me:
    1. This VBF thing is funny. The whole time I was the only one working on it so no, it's not official but all the power to whoever he is and what he wants to do.
    2. Server costs were never a issue, it cost around 200$ a month while it made around 150$. I could've at least kept going for 1-2 years.
    3. Main reason I sold it was because it got really annoying having to deal with a bunch of crybabies and annoying trolls. People like brent or craftinglord did make me keep going for a bit longer than I wanted to because I didn't want to let them down.
    I got the offer of 1500$ at the end of august but declined. Later I came back to them and sold it for 1250$. Other reasons included a trademark on the name "vidbit" which wasn't a problem at the moment but could've easily become one in the future, threats of ddos and finally just me sucking badly at moderating I guess.
    4. My name is Jan. My full name was actually in one of the about pages and I had my facebook linked to the vidbit fb page.
    5. VidBit was a fun experience at the beginning and it had been my dream to run a video site for a long time now.
    6. No, the DDoS threats didn't come from ZippCast. I knew where they came from but I don't really care to cause any more drama so I won't say it.
    7. Sorry to the people I had to dissappoint but some kind of VidBit will be back in the future and (I hope because I'd love to be on a YouTube 2009 clone site without having to babysit a bunch of 50 year olds) better than the one I made.
    8. The reason why it redirects to zippcast is because I thought it would be released soon but I guess not.
    Would be nice if you'd release this pm.
    My only affiliation with ZippCast was a PM I sent them on facebook which was something like:
    Good luck and I hope that zippcast and vidbit can coexist with another and that I personally didn't have anything against louis or zippcast.
    Also f*** seattlemark

    That is what he sent me. A lot to take in for sure.
