    I have a thought.

    Do you think that the Dome was shut down temporarily, because the high amounts of bandwidth usage caused by the boards that increased the price of hosting so much, to where it exceeded the band's web site budget.

    In other words, we know that VH knows very little of the Internet, and doesn't do any conversing on the site. They were getting so much traffic on the site before, and with boards, they are doubling, tripling, quadrupling in sessions and hits. The only reason fans are going there, is for the boards, since there is never any news over there anyway. It was a good hit getter at first, but after a while, Eddie and Co. may be thinking, "Wait a minute. We aren't doing shit. We were fine with the site we had, even though we neglected it. Why are we dishing extra money for the fans to use our site like another Yahoo chatroom or something? Just shut it down until we have something to give the fans something to talk about."

    I'm just thinking that since these guys don't know anything about the net anyway, that they wouldn't understand the whole message board thing and it's finances.

    Make any sense?

    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    You really think they're hurting for cash?

    And if so, the answer to that problem is simple:

    PUT A FUCKING ALBUM OUT!!
    (but only with Dave, because nothing else is gonna increase the cash flow)

    Nah, the Pasture Dump was shut down because $tark$ saw the outrage when he called Mikey's own words "bullshit". He knew the shit would hit the fan when the "un-newsworthy" label split story broke.

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    ...It's the BAND and Dave is really the cat that can front VH. He sang his ASS off and was really cool. No cheese here guys, this is filet Mignon! - Steve Lukather's comment after witnessing a Van HALEN 2007 rehearsal

    Listen man. If it were us, in our financial situation, we'd feel like we'd never have to work again. But celebs spend as much as they make. How many Ferraris do you have? That's how I look at it. After how many years has it been now? Going on 4 years? Yeah, I'd say it'd be a good idea to start being more conservative.

    And if so, the answer to that problem is simple:

    I agree. But hey, who are we? Just little fans that aren't ever going to be heard.

    Nah. Starks had nothing to do with it. He doesn't call the shots. And even if he did have something to do with it. The whole MA thing has zero to do with it. There have been worse things on that site. For example: Our wars.

    Maybe Mr. Starks is putting all his efforts in the D-Tuna web site since he is the webmaster there too.
    We all know that is newsworthy.

    I firmly believe that the band wasn't too thrilled with their bill from Sonic.net for van-halen.com after seeing what it was from 1997 to September 2000.

    Most of the newer bands or interactive bands understand, but Eddie himself even says he doesn't have the time for the Internet, and is computer illiterate. Why should it matter to him either way?

    Granted VH don't seem to have a manager, but do you really think the band would even be aware of what their website is costing them? Hard to imagine a band as established as VH keeping tabs on these things.

    Maybe the new lawyer they now have is helping them with financial decisions ?

    Has anyone done any homework on the lawyer they now have, since Engel is apparently out of the picture ? Is that confirmed ? Curious.....

    I think so yes. When they aren't making money, I would hope they are keeping tabs on what is being spent.

    That's the way I saw it too FORD. We all weathered the MJ's and TBS's but when two legit guys posted what they heard and Starks started calling Bullshit... it trully did hit the fan.
