Was Richard even a pop music/Xtina Stan? Or was it all a business deal running Livedaily? I remember it was once a music news site.

I never actually asked him. I know he was into more of the business side of things, but he was pretty up to date in terms of appearances re:server load, so I can't imagine he wasn't at least interested in the good sis Aguilera. 
I just kept hoping, I just kept hoping
The way would become clear
I spent all this time tryna play now
I found my way here
See, I've been having me a real hard time

But it feels so nice to know I'm gonna be alright

Richard isn't embroiled in some legal war or anything of the like. He was asked to take down certain pictures and the agency that contacted us threatened to sue, up to $10,000 per pic. So we disabled pics in order to take care of that, but it was very likely that pics wouldn't be coming back at all. 

With all this in mind, I contacted him and told him, if things came to worst, I could potentially open a new site/run it. Mine was a "what if/possible distant future" proposition. He said that it might be best to just do it now instead of wait, and I've been working on it all ever since (about 2 weeks ago). The forum itself opened on February 20th. 

Richard chose to step down because he has been less and less active on the running of the site, and it didn't make sense for him to continue being in front of the financial and legal responsibilities when he wasn't around anymore. So I decided to go on my own, and the rest is history :)

It is a bit sad, I joined Old about a year before it closed. ALD was a good time, but I'm excited about our new home. This site is sexy. Ready for the new era.

Very interesting.

Well, at least this place has more of a Christina feel already, with the name and 'whatnot'.

Honestly it was about time Richard stepped down. He wasn't doing that much for us, and in some sense, that was limiting the growth of the forum. He's probably in his mid 40's or something anyway.

Thanks for taking over. It's a perfect way to get ready for X6 era :music:

Thank you @jorge. for opening this forum!

I feel sad for the history of aLD going to lost. So many legendary threads!

P.S. I saved few of my most important threads. :chud_cat:  :vanity_cat: Will repost if that's okay?
