    The one post to explain it all? Please...

    Muck, Celtkin, FFiC, et all.,

    I've tried to keep up with what is going on, but going between 2 sites and literally 1000's of posts I'm still at a bit of a loss.

    I know that you guys won't get into what's happened, I respect that. But I hope we could get a clear explanation of what is going to happen form here. Site names, domains, memberships, etc., are all questions I and many have, so I hope that a detailed explanation can be given. I understand you guys were blindsided and are probably scrambling to figure out what you're going to do, but anything you could tell us about the near future of your plans would be highly appreciated.

    This is clearly shaping up to be where members are going to have to chose to stay over there, come over here, or straddle the two, but its difficult for us members who don't know you guys or the situation, unless we have an idea of what will happen.

    So again, any info about your guys plans will be greatly appreciated...

    Sorry bro. We misunderstood.

    We are developing a new Dolphins fan forum and will roll this forum into that one. We will fully honor the subscriptions of paid members. We are still mulling over a domain name.

    it has taken me a little while to catch up to current events... what i have read in this thread has been enlightening to say the least.

    i have seen Celtkin at work in the PoFo where things can get ugly, and he has handled it expertly. Muck and FFinCa reputations speak for themselves...

    can't wait to see what the future holds.

    Thank you!!!! My hope, when creating this thread was to have one thread that you guys could update, so you wouldn't be inundated with questions everywhere else, and that we could all come to, to get those updates. Since, the panic and curiosity, has gripped us all, like a crack head who can't find a dealer, this obviously, means this thread won't work for that.:lol:

    Again, I don't really know what happened, but of the two sides to this, one has certainly acted the way a guilty party acts (striking without warning, covering-up, and acting like "it" never happened).

    So far, I must say that, this already feels like the site we all loved from before "The Great Crash". I can't put my finger on it, but the best way I can summarize it, is "less corporate".

    Anyway, you have my full support. (For whatever that's worth.) I was wondering if you guys could explain how we can cancel our VIP membership over there and still be VIP's over here.

    We will honor your current VIP subscription from FH.

    This site is "family owned" and operated. We are more about the membership and we believe that if we take care of the family, they will take care of us and this site will survive because of that philosophy

    If Dolphinsnation fully discards the finheaven domain to become Dolphinsnation, would it be possible to take or buy that old one? Keep the tradition alive? I'm guessing Finheaven isn't copyrighted, but not sure. Could just be me yapping after celebratory UCLA victory drinks. :lol:

    I'll post the same thing I just posted in another thread....

    WOW oh wow.

    I did not come to FH all weekend, and I come in this Easter Morning to what a shock!!!

    I am surprised to hear some of this info now. I figured being a premie and "super donator" over there I would have heard some of this BEFORE the fact, but I guess I was just being naive. I mean with all the new VIPs that kept signing up, I figured the site was in real good shape. To hear it had problems... wow.

    I am a loyal person by nature, so I will probably keep going to that site for now, but being all the people I am used to chatting with are probably going to be here. I am going to come here too. Which ever site has the better conversations, that is where I will spend the most time. Just from the people I have already seen here... I am guessing this will be the place.

    HAPPY EASTER all.

    -Mike

    Maybe it was an omen? On 3/11, I got an e-mail from paypal saying my subscription was canceled and it happen only two days after I paid for the next year. I never did anything to cancel it, but Celtkin said they got the same message. Now it doesn't look like I'll have to do the "leg work?" to cancel my subscription if the time comes..

    Regardless, I've been reading what's going on for a few days now, and I think this is my first post on the subject. Hope everything goes well..

    LOL, I just re-upped my VIP, but my Premie membership comes up in May. By then I should know if I want to keep it there or here! The more I read, the more I am betting it is going to be here!

    We are not here to do a FH vent but i too felt wronged by alot of FH managers over the site's spring GM league. I put together a staff in 2006 when the current leaders were a no show and the 5 of us ran that thing like a well oiled machine and i was up until 4 and 5 on many a night making sure the draft was going great. and after patitioning the GM league mod and simply asking for the same team to do the league in 07 my messags were never replied to and to say the least a kid was named a modertor for that forum. I never looked at the GM league ever since and my time on FH has been sporatic....I never spent money on being a VIP for that same reason....I will spend it here

    One great thing I am seeing, is a steady increase in membership. We have gained roughly 100 new members in 3 -4 days. Knowing the the guys who are running this place I can see great things are going to happen to this place. Like I have said before it has the feel of FH when I first joined and there were 500 or so members.

    I have monitored the situation on both sites, although for now (and maybe for good) I am not posting over there. It's not because I'm angry, or because I want to punish anyone over there. It's more on the positive side of things, specificly because I want to suppport this site 100% in its efforts to build. I respect how hard it was for the leadership here to make some of the decisions that they made and take the risks they took.

    That said, since I've monitored there and here its been a ghost-town over there and really the ONLY thing going on there that I can see is the zoo is going ok in typical zoo-like fashion. VIP over there is dead and they have appointed some new Mods that don't measure up to the people I have come to know and respect as Mods. I don't say that to knock people, or to say they can never reach that status, but for me thats something earned not given. FN appointing an 18 year old a Mod is not the same to me as having Crunch , Muck ,Celk, FFIC, CNC66, FINSWIN56, etc serving as mods. They gained my respect over YEARS of interaction. It will take time for anyone at FN to achieve that. So for now, and maybe for always, my time, money and respect goes to ThePhins.com.

    I coudn't agree more Dolfanmike. I have been watching over there. What I see over there makes me scratch my head. You know who you are. I do not mean this in a threatening manner,but please be real.

    Its good to see you man. I was out of touch for a couple days and when I logged back on I was like "why did this place slow down to a crawl?" :lol:

    I didn't realize the scope of what happened and that practically everyone had moved until today. I will be here from now on though...... Its just a shame that something that has become so much a part of our lives has to be left behind. Its just a name in the end though, what made it great was the people and it looks like most of them made it here... Speaking of which, anyone know if Shou made it over here?

    Its got to especially be a blow though for the people that did so much work over there getting the site back up after the crash to leave and start all over. :sad:

    Pretty much the same here. I've been really busy and haven't had time to check the site much.

    You're right, though, it's just a name. Home is where the people are that make the site special, and - in my opinion - that's here.

    Yeah, it stung pretty hard for a few days, but I think most of the staff has recovered knowing that ThePhins.com has the potential to be even better.
    Another one my favorite posters, who I was afraid wouldn't find the breadcrumbs. :hi5:

    I'm just happy to have a site where a I can talk Dolphins football. I still vist several Dolphins sites, but spend most of my time on this one. If I say something on this one, I usually get a response in a matter of minutes, the other sites, well, it could be days.

    I'm happy to be a member over here and I'm looking forward to the future.
