What happened? was created by Alpha1

Last night when attempting to visit RobotechX.com around 10:30pm PST, I couldn't help but notice that the regular web site for RobotechX was replaced. It had a message indicating that due to some sort of cease and desist order that RobotechX had received, that RobotechX.com had been taken down. This same message also included information regarding a new Voltron site that would be created by the same talented people who created RobotechX.

This morning at around 8:30am PST I was able successfully return to RobotechX. I haven't seen that previous message of the site being taken down since last night so I must ask, what happened?

Did some sort of dispute occur between RobotechX and Harmony Gold? Or was this just an early April fool’s joke? :S

Look at the calendar...

However in light of recent events it pretty much can happen in future.

As I questioned before, was this an early April fools joke or was it not?

I agree with you, in light of recent events it wouldn't surprise me of HG tried to shut down this site and every other Robotech fan site. It’s a fair question to ask if we as users of RobotechX will continue to be able to enjoy this site without HG interference?

I completely fell for it this morning. I had posted on my facebook this morning how upset I was with HG for shutting this site down and than I had to delete it when this site went back up.

Well that's a relief! I'm glad that it was all in "fun" then and not real. Hopefully this site will continue to operate free of HG interference. :laugh:

lol damn, as for me I knew it was a prank because the night before when I was chatting with SIGHUP on AIM he asked me if I was a fan of Voltron so when I saw the message I put two and two together :laugh:
