Fellow TDH members,
Many of you may not be aware of this, especially those who are newer to TDH, but we owe a huge debt of thanks to Nikki Burdett, aka Princess Nikidala, the owner of the RPF. Quite some time back we were unceremoniously kicked off our internet provider’s server, because we had grown too large. This was done without warning and with no opportunity for recourse. Basically, TDH died that day. Within no time, less than 48 hours if I recall correctly, Nikki swooped in like superwoman and offered to take us under her wing by giving us a home on her server for as long as we wanted. We gladly accepted and have happily called prop-planet.com our home ever since.
Shortly after that event, a number of people asked about thanking Nikki for her generosity. Because the MSH helmet had just recently been introduced, we decided the best way to say “thanks” was giving Nikki a “dented” helmet of her own. Many TDH members contributed time, money, and supplies.
This project has taken quite some time, but we finally finished it, and the helmet was shipped last Wednesday. Nikki received it on Monday. Below you will find pictures of the helmet, custom artwork, created by Micke, specifically for this project, and the contents of the card we sent Nikki along with the helmet. Thanks to all of those who worked so hard to make this gift a reality. As always, together we can do great things. Thanks again Nikki for all your hard work and all the things you do behind the scenes! TDH wouldn’t be here without you!

Shortly after TDH was shutdown by our internet provider, you picked us up and gave us a new home on your server. Because of your generosity, we wanted to give you a little something in return. We thought about flowers and candy, but we just aren’t the flowers and candy type. The best thing we could think of was to give you a “dented helmet” of your own. A number of TDH members donated time, money, and supplies to help this project come together. It has taken over a year to complete, but we are now happy to present you with this helmet as a token of our appreciation for all that you have done for TDH. Without you, TDH would not be possible. Thank you!
With highest regard,
The Dent and all of TDH
