Yeah I think it does and also the fact that Richie wouldn't make Duncan a mod on LM despite his dissatisfaction with Richies more liberal approach to argueing posters.(I can't imagine who those would be)

I think it lasted a bit longer than that, it was when the disaster of making The Master a mod on that board caused a huge exodus to LM along with the cyber-squatting of the old board which consigned that board to tumbleweed territory.
Ralph's point earlier alluded to the fact that at one time everybody and his dog seemed to be setting up a Proboards forum, all basically competing for the same community that started on the original 2005.
DW 2005 and LM.
DW 2005 and Beyond
Tardis Type 40 or whatever it was.
Someone should do a history of all the Dr Who forums traced back to BBCi!
Yeah, there's quite a family tree of them if you include the Redux>Leisure Hive>The Hive branch too.
The DW2006 one is the one I think you may be thinking of which became doomed after a matter of weeks which wasn't surprising considering it had a "code of conduct" list longer than a fucking legal document and they took longer and ten times more discussion to decide on this ridiculous conduct-guide than they ever did discussing the fucking programme.
Doctors Den was really just a base for Soldeed and his mates whilst they plotted their next wave assault on LM. I don't ever really recall much discussion on Doctor Who actually taking place there anyway.
I think the difference between the other branch offs from LM and Redux was the other forums wanted MORE stricter moderation than LM and Redux wanted a hell of a lot less.(in fact, there was basically fuck all moderation on Redux)
