I wouldn't be upset if a certain mod got the boot straight away, I think we all know which I'm referring to.

Edit: Going to start hanging out over here more often now, if HF goes anything like RCG I'm done, that site is garbage.

Wonder what the reason for the sale of the site?

Was ad revenue down significantly or going to be down in the near future for lack of renewals?

Think it's time for some of his mods to "move on"....

Still think if he was making good money from ad revenue, he wouldn't have sold.

Another question also comes to mind.

1000's of people have posted(posts, galleries, etc.) pics and other stuff that made HF what it was.

Now Will sells these assets to RCG.

Should these people receive some compensation after their IP was sold to RCG?

And does RCG have the right to display pics, etc. that weren't published at RCG...but at HF, instead?

Some interesting legal issues that lawyers will have to argue.

Good thing I was weening myself off that site.

RCG sucks.

The "fundraiser" was handled poorly to say the least.
E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

I don't mean to hate, and I have enjoyed both sites over the years..... but the amount of misinformation from newbie pilots and people reccomending products they haven't even seen let alone used/owned in the last few years is rediculous. Blind leading the blind...

Lets be nice. At least now we know who's running the show. It was telling several months ago when HF was down and WJ was trying to explain what his developer was up to. I think that said person is the one now missing in action. I hope we can NOW all play fair.
