Alright, gimplearn.com is live

previously GIMP LEARN forum resides at bakon.ca/gimplearn
Now I just purchased gimplearn.com
So you can just easily access gimplearn.com now, and it'll redirect you to bakon.ca/gimplearn
Everything is still the same.... we just have a DNS that makes sense now.

UPDATE (April 26, 2018): We no longer pay for gimplearn.com which is being sold for $2295 right now (probably riding off popularity of gimplearn.net). 

If you google for "gimplearn.com" (not directly go there using url), gimplearn.net shows up as top search result.  So yeah I think gimplearn.com is being overly priced because of popularity of gimplearn.net.

Worth of my site/forum according to worthoftheweb.com

 According to worthoftheweb.com my forum is worth about $2,000 which is overblown i think
http://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/bakon.ca/gimplearn/
My site only makes on average 1.5 cent/day on ezoic ads.
Why is the estimate so overblown?
I am wondering if they calculate how much it can be worth based on site's traffic and if i was selling products or something.
Because i don't sell products on there.
It's just a GIMP LEARN forum where people can share/learn about GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program).
And I don't show ads to members, it only show ads to guests.
Showing ads only in the hopes of keep being able to pay for hosting in order to keep the site up to support members.
Members share ideas, and guests can view them with ads and that hopefully that helps pays for future hosting costs.
If money wasn't an issue, I'd shut off the ads completely.
