I hope you guys get it back up. It is not cool to have something you enjoy doing ripped from under you. If the mods/admins have no prob with it being here then there can be no argument from anyone. With that said; I think that any time money is involved it seems to suck some fun out of it. I know money make the world go round and it cost to start a site.
ait is prob going to be awhile before people get over this and not think it is a scam. Yeah people can choose whether to donate or not. But if people see a site like all droid closed and then have one of the admins post a blog about lawyers and stuff, it sounds like drama and scam.
I do not know the people at alldroid so it may be legit. 5,000 is a lot of dough and no one can image that much money to manage a site. Hopefully you have a contingency plan if you can not raise that much money.
I suggest start slow and rebuild starting at the foundation. You build the site because of the love of the device and wanted to share info with people with the same mindset. As frustrating as it is to see so much gone it could be used as a reason to start a new and add things that you would not have tried before. Whether you get the money or not you should be able to establish something to keep it going.
My confusion was the sister sites; it seemed as if you guys split and are not on the same page. You may not be alldroid, but you could be extremedroid. .....
I hope you guys get back on your feet because you were a good source of info for the android community.
