I bought this domain from the original owner a few years ago. As you can see there has been a site up and running since at least 1999 http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://webmasters.org
I tried the site at first as a social network and when that didn't catch on I switched it to a forum, with a directory, blog, and auction using phpprobid. vbulliten and phpprobid cost me money for the license and to have them installed. Obviously this site has huge potential but right now the revenue and traffic are nominal. Here are the adsense stats. Not shown here is the fact that any posts done in which a user enters in their adsense ID goes to the forum poster.

There may be some overlap in these channels.
One could easily earn really good money from selling text links. I just always felt it was too risky.
Site has some rankings for keywords like, webmasters, webmasters forums, websites for sale, google website tools.
Someone that has the time and know how to improve, promote and brand Webmasters.org could do really well with it. But I have come to the realization that I don't have the time and won't anytime soon.
At the same time I know this is a very valuable domain and will hold it if I don't feel there is enough interest. I am not setting a BIN now but may later.
