AJ Freda said something that was short and wasn’t really noticed on the STJR Message Board, but might decide the fate of the site. He said that if he can get Sonic HQ on SegaSonic.net, the server might stay on. Keep in mind that this was before the poll (not the current one) went up for about a day. But it looks like the fate of the server will NOT be based on that, thankfully.
12/10: Yes, it was considered by him. After losing STJR to the Sonic Stuff Research Group, AJ Freda put up a poll concerning the fate of the site. He received 50 no votes. This is good, as AJ will leave the sites and the MP3s up. However, because no one is joining AllAdvantage, which will help him financially with the state of the site, it is very tough for AJ.
So, wish for the best of luck with AJ, and, if you can, join AllAdvantage for the sake of the site. It will help Sonic fans everywhere keep visiting a site that will hopefully grow and prosper as time goes on.
