    I loved that site.

    That's an odd reason to take it down, though. Let the whiners whine, I say.

    Sorry for the resurrection of this thread, but I figured some might be interested in hearing that stuff from the Drex Files will be reposted via The Trek Collective:

    I wonder if they will be including any new stuff he's been putting on his Facebook page along with the legacy stuff from the original site. From what I recall, there are new things there.

    It was a cool site and I am sad to hear it is down but I do understand the concerns of other artists. I find it disheartening though that people are calling them "whiners". He shouldn't put his site watermark on their work at all. I do very amatuer wallpapers just for myself that I've shared online but I still wouldn't want someone else stamping their site on stuff I spent time on so I can imagine how someone who spent hours rendering things would feel about it too.

    If all that was required was a removal of watermarks and simple credit given (I recall there were several where credit was given) then that's all well and good. To cause so many problems that resulted in a complete shut-down of one of the most valuable Trek-nology sites on the web (and quite possibly the only one with this much behind-the-scenes topical information of its kind) is a childish and, yes, whiney way of conducting business. It hurts the whole fan community who have been looking for those specific things for over 20 years and it doesn't place the artists in a very favorable light either. Its loss was a tragedy either way you cut it and could have been handled better on both sides.
