Thanks for all the hard work mods.

While I understand this is a huge blow to our coummunity I think this is far better in the long run. Now the mods/admins can update the information on the main page, and we can be current. There is some stablity now, which I guess there wasnt before.

Its sad what happened to us, but now I think things are better.

Yeah, I liked that! I was very nearly royalty when it went pear shaped! One more week and I've had had a crown ;)

If I remember correctly from my admin days on another MB I think its something the admins can fix. But I'm sure there are bigger fish to fry right now. :D But yeah I liked em too.

I was in the top 10 of posting! :o

Thanks for keeping us posted - I wondered initially if it was just me - using the comp at work instead of actually working. :eek:

Glad we have a forum back - now to update links!

I dont think the mods have that power. I think some are going to see what comes up using a google search, but I think its a lost cause. Its sad. We did so much work for it all to go bye bye. Still, now that things are more stable I think we can build this place up to be bigger and better :)

I'd like to add my thanks and appreciation, too. I can't offer help, but I'm willing to pay a membership fee to support the work you guys do.

Royalty wasn't any more than a pipe dream for me! :p

I'm on heman.org (huge masters of the universe site, yes I'm letting my inner geek out! ) Anyway, they have been asking for donations to help with the site. So its not uncommon for that to happen. If we need to donate a little to help, I'll be more than willing to help (after my first paycheck ;) )

If you guys joined Google Adsense (like we had on the last site), I think more of us would be willing to click since we know it's going towards you guys for this site and not the owners or whoever, at least I know I would.
