  2. Why you need to create a new thread and new account? Whats happened with your old thread and account? As per rules, it is 1 thread per site only.
    Are you new owner of this site?
    Yes I am a new owner, visit the site online play, you can not download.

    The graphic is nice, very simple, i like the white color, but i don’t have understand, you is a new owner, but the site is launched 5 february (i see this date like first post in this thread) and later 10 day have change owner?

    The previous owner launched this site on July 2015 as announced on this thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1105085.0, perhaps the previous owner felt that there were lack of interest so he decided to sell this site although I cant find any auctions about this site.

    @OP : since you are new owner, is there any promotions such as no deposit bonus like the previous owner gave in the past?

    thanks, i have search manually the old thread but not see because the last reply are to november 2015 .

    for the new owner, i think is bet add a nice promo (with all new site) for the user of bitcointalk Grin
