The whole causing the schism then leaving thing does have some validity, but in general this website will probably end up being better than what the new Brickfilms 3.0 is. Additionally, I remember some people saying when the whole fiasco first occurred that sooner or later somebody was going to split from Brickfilms anyway (with its imminent decline into anarchy,) so we could just as easily be in this situation with someone else. Schlaeps being the former admin of Brickfilms does throw a wrench into it, but either way the actions were somewhat justified.
Another point to consider here: I have noticed since I very first joined Brickfilms three years ago today, in fact, that people come and go in cycles. I would say 80% or more of the members active on here and Brickfilms (or both) are ones that were not there when I first joined. Conversely, about the same number that were active then have since disappeared. It goes to show that people in general don't last at places like this: even admins. This "cycle" may have come at an inopportune time for Schlaeps with the controversy arising from his actions regarding the two sites and his construction of this one, but what I'm trying to say is that it is only natural. Schlaeps has been around about as long as I have, I believe, and I too have had my fair share of brickfilming, and my activity with the site seems to be unfortunately on the wane.
Anyway, thanks for your contributions, Schlaeps. At least we have this site to come to as an alternative instead of nothing.
