Why we can't stick together as a community, I will never understand. No offense to Solandia, but she didn't make this site special, the users did. She uploaded a template and paid for the hosting, but the posters are what made it special. In 2 1/2 years, I don't I've ever had a single exchange with Solandia, so whether she was here or not wouldn't have changed my experience a bit... you guys were what made this site a community.
csdude, I don't think you get it. We're not being negative at all. We are supporting Solandia's decision to close in its current format. Because unlike you, some of us believe that AT is what it is because of Solandia. She had the vision to set all of this up. And, a lot of us have actually met Solandia so, we don't think of her as just someone who pays a website hosting bill.

This is her heart and soul and, members are transient.

There are a number of other members who have the qualification, skills and experience to take over (myself included). It's not the point.

I have nothing against you starting your own community. I just don't think that you should be trying to take this community with you.

with love
