Lately the only reading I was doing there was to see if Adamz was going to pop back in. He hadn't posted in a while and I figured he either was busy working on his next rom, had moved on bought some sort of non-android phone (ack!) or some other RL issue had presented itself to him and he was taking a break. Odd that he hadn't at least posted to say "stuffs come up, be back in a month" though. He may have never even gotten the warning email. However, I bet most devs are packrats and keep copies of their work on their own computers too. I can't imagine them thinking "ok, my stuff is on this forum over there now, no reason to keep it myself any longer".
I don't feel bad for alldroid but do feel for those who visited there and called the place home.
Thank you DF for creating a stable environment for us here. These communities do cost money to run. That and a lot of hours. Hopefully the income matches the outgo so not much comes out of the owner's pockets. The fact that new sites are opened for new phones indicates their model is working.
