    Oh come on people, It's either not having a lounge for a little while or not having CA at all.
    eh?

    I highly doubt that the lounge bandwidth was the thing that was going to sink CA. Sounds like there are alot of costs outside running the site itself that we are ignorant of because, as was mentioned in that thread, they can't be spending anywhere near 50 grand a month on bandwidth and hosting alone.

    Besides, they've been working for quite awhile now towards 4.0 or TAD or whatever name the new face of CA is going under. I don't see the whole thing just disappearing when the newest model is just waiting to be unveiled. Patience, I'm sure it will all settle back to normal soon, or some kind of normal anyhow.

    It will be back. For better or worse, the Lounge is a big part of what makes CA what it is.

    Yes, but I think if people need to vent now it might be wise at the moment to do it off-site.

    I will drop this thread when I get an official response. That sounds (and probably is) very selfish of me, but I just want to know what happened.

    Shit! I meant really, shit it out quick! Hopefully it's not too digested. Any one got some laxatives for Randis.

    Actually, I'd argue that point. It's more like drama is a big part of what makes CA what it is. The Lounge is just the laundry room.

    Cliffs:

    Yesterday Manley announced CA.org would be taken down due to lack of funding.

    The last "on demand" class only had like 12 attendees and there wasn't enough funding to keep the website running.

    He needed 150k to cover the next 3 months.

    In one day we raised an exceptional amount, enough to keep the forum running a little longer ( but don't stop donating!)

    Unfortunately the thread ended up being more than just supporters, and some members felt like criticizing Manleys methods, and expressing their own opinions on how the forum should be run.

    The lounge was shut down to give the CA.org people room to breathe, it's been an emotional few days. (Though I'm not sure if this is official yet)

    This thread was created as the lounge closure was sudden and with little warning.

    I posted this post.
