    More of this story will develop over time, I'm sure. I'm done discussing it, and have ended my association with John Sale (who ran the forum).

    In short, he fired the entire admin staff then shut it down. Where he takes the forum from here, who knows.

    As Mike indicated, I don't think this was an economic issue as much as a clash of personalities. It is always sad to see a resource go but such is life.

    Sorry, I was just kidding.
    But really, wasn't it a pay site? I never used it but will people be getting refunds?

    It was as much a pay site as this one is.

    Donations.
    And yes, John Sale should consider reimbursing all those who recently contributed.

    It seems to be kinda back. Except for the Clone reference sections, which sucks. Was really try to track down a specific thread.

    Really? I thought you had to pay more to have a larger avatar among other things. I assure you that is NOT what is going on here at TDH.

    It sucks for those people who used that resource, but many of us saw this coming. It was bound to happen sooner or later.

    Definitely stinks to lose a resource but also provides an opportunity for sites like CT.NET and TDH to pick up the slack.

    hey john seems like a nice enough guy to me I have nothing but good dealings with him.
    I talk to him and he said the site was being restructured and would be back online soon.

    seems everything is back and taking its first new shaky steps. hopefully things haven't been permanently damaged and that c-e can take it's place as the tdh of clones. (even though we have our own clone section)

    I have to echo the esteemed TDH forum staff in my opinions.

    Not a big fan of people who treat people differently if they choose to costume a male character if they are a female, or if they choose to register their clones as Rebel Legion members.

    (not that all members or mods at that site agreed with the owners opinions)
