I am sure that the staff will address this in a more formal manner. However from statements made by staff in several threads does clear things up for the most part. So here is what has been said thus far.
This was a statement by Cereal Killa
"We had to close down the BD area because it became out of hand and a flame war. Unfortunately A LOT of members got caught in the crossfire A thread for people looking for UD v10 support became anything but. It was like a home being flooded and the ONLY way to stop the flood was to board up the windows and doors. I 100% agree that it simply is not fair that the majority has suffered because of what the minority did. I've voiced my displeasure in the Mod forum saying such but here we are. I deeply apologize that this had to happen but it was really the LAST resort. BD will be up and running soon so there is no need to worry that it's been closed indefinitely. He WILL be up and running again I hope that helps to shed some light on the situation and again we here at DF do apologize for the inconvenience I do recommend checking out the Rescue Squad in the interim."
Here is a statement made by Sam
"i can give you a little bit of a heads up without overstepping my bounds.. BD is making some changes to his ROM (might call the changes 10.1, though creating a new thread for it with a changelog with a whole lot of info in it.... from outside our forum, so steps are being taken to handle this situation o back here. this SHOULD all blow over in a day or so, but the BD section sho back here. this SHOULD all blow over in a day or so, but the BD section sho and an updated v10 (whatever he will call it, if he even changes the name) a just hang in there guys, this stuff takes time to get it right... we want to mak maturity so that we don't start another flame war between forums and devs"
And another statement made today by CK
"Unfortunately guys it MAY not happen today. Tomorrow it should be up and running but again there is a chance, a small one, it will get reopened today. I've voiced my opinion already in this thread that I'm just as upset as most of you but please bear with us."
So that's where this is at... hope this helps
